Exceeded my expectations
I highly recommend Mark Longwell and Longwell Lawyers. Mark has a ton of experience dealing with prosecutors and criminal case and from the beginning he insisted he would get me a good result. I was willing to except a plea deal, he got he charges dropped. His experience of how the prosecution would work was evident, he does what he says he will do. The results far exceeded my expectations.

Mark Longwell gets results
My boyfriend was charged with discharging a weapon to fend off drunken neighbor who came on property and threatened to shoot him. This neighbor came on the property twice, refusing to leave and then called the police twice on the boyfriend after making threatening statements . Mr. Longwell defended my boyfriend flawlessly and charges were dropped. He is very skilled in his profession and gets results. I would recommend him without a doubt.
