Divorce /parenting plan
Mr Mark and his paralegal Lee-Anne are kind - professional and understanding of the importance of a life changing process such as divorce with a minor . I am a physician who had limited time and also suffered an urgent medical surgery during this process , I can tell you if I did not have Mark as my attorney my divorce settlement could be have not been successful . He was at my side every step of the way during my illness and the entire process of court related preparation , he always advised me to follow the law which has lead to an excellent outcome for me and my daughter . Words will never be enough to express my eternal gratitude . Now I feel that the right Attorney was my golden ticket to survive my divorce - and recovered from my medical emergency . Mark and Lee-Anne I will forever remember you as my legal angel in my time of need . Please keep up the good work

Awesome, up front and easy to deal with.
I appreciated his no-nonsense approach in explaining things to me as well as dealing with opposing counsel. I never felt like he was wasting my time and he made a difficult time much easier by handling my case with care and letting me know exactly what to expect from mediation and depositions. All in all he changed my opinion of what a lawyer should be, with his calm calm demeanor, professional attitude and the personal feel of his approach.

Particularly difficult divorce handled so well
Mark is a wonderful advocate for women and truly makes you feel supported and defended against difficult and unreasonable opposition parties and their attorneys. He goes above and beyond and also is terrific with communication. I cannot thank Mark and his assistant Lee-Anne enough for the service and support they provided.

Custody
I had been fighting for custody of my son for several years due to the situation with his mother. After going to Mark and working with him I was able to finally get custody of my son. Mark was very precise with his strategy in the hearings and the execution was great. I am very pleased and would highly recommend Mark Fraser to anyone that is looking for a good family attorney.

Always there in the face of our Nightmare!
I feel Mark & Lee-Anne became 'friends' through our horrendous ordeal. They both responded with accuracy & urgency. Mark explained details thoroughly & patiently. Mark & Lee-Anne received so many calls with me in tears & panic due to the dangerous situation I was in, yet never seemed to tire in the face of months worth of trauma. Today is a brighter day having had Mark in our corner! We won our case; & sleep better. We consider Mark 'our lawyer' & most certainly will use him again in the future. If need be, he will be my first call! Thank you Mark!! Thank you Lee-Anne! I highly recommend!!!

Highly Recommended!!
Mark and his assistant Lee-Anne were great from day one when I hired him to the final hearing. With their help I was able to establish visitation rights to get my son on a consistent basis as well as lower my child support. I’m very glad I made him my lawyer

MADE A DIFFICULT SITUATION EASIER
Divorce is never easy but Mark (and his fabulous paralegal-Leann) was always there for me, to answer my questions, calm me down when circumstances (like COVID) caused delays and make me feel they were truly on my side. I could not be happier with the results and I have Mark and Leann to thank.

Grateful for honest help
I have gone to Mark with two separate cases. Each time I have felt confident throughout the process not only that Mark was handling everything properly, but efficiently as well. In other words, when you're paying the fee for his time you know that was time spent working on your case! His assistant Lee-Anne is AMAZING. If you're needing an attorney start here.

Excellent Attorney, Exceeded my Expectations
I had a complicated divorce and child custody case that Mark handled with great knowledge and timeliness. He was very professional and caring about my case. I have used previous attorneys that were not nearly as competent as Mark. The outcome was everything I had hoped for and more. I would highly recommend hi as an attorney, and especially as a family law attorney.

Very Knowledgable / Excellent Attorney
Mark Fraser worked very hard on my divorce and parent sharing plan. We won! I appreciate his diligence and communication throughtout this difficult process. I highly recommend Mark Fraser as a family law attorney.

Well Done Mark
Mark and I spent two years fighting my custody case. He finally won the case for me today. Mark was able to get me, a father, full custody of my son. I am forever thankful for this. Mark is reasonable, and will fight for you. I would recommend Mark in custody matters. My case may have set a precedence, hopefully it could help others!

Highly Recommend Mark Fraser for his knowledge of the law and expertise
Mr. Fraser is a wonderful attorney. He gave me excellent advice of my options, fought for my cause, and was very professional and knowledgable. I was very impressed with how quickly he responded to my questions and concerns throughout my case. I have referred several of my friends and co-workers to Mr. Fraser and they all have been very pleased with his service as well.

Told me not to throw him under a bus
Hired this guy as my first lawyer in a divorce and was slapped with legal fees from the other side for not having disclosure ready in the timeframe allowed while this guy sat next to me telling me not to throw him under the bus in front of the judge. Fired him the next day after about five thousand dollars in fees.
Response from Mark Fraser April 12, 2021
I am surprised by this review as none of the actions alleged even remotely describe the manner in which I practice law. I pride myself on working hard for every client on every case for which I am hired to represent. I am certainly willing to discuss this matter should you so choose to contact me directly. Mark J. Fraser, Esq.
