Mark Eiglarsh is the best attorney I have ever seen.
I hired Mark recently after discovering I was in a serious legal situation. Mark immediately took my call and sprung into action. Mark met with me and my family for hours and immediately created a legal strategy that put me and my family at ease. Since our initial meeting Mark keeps me informed regularly on my legal matter and is constantly working to resolve it. I could not ask for a better lawyer when your life is at stake. I highly recommend Mark and continually thank him for representing me in my case.

Greatest lawyer in town
I Thank God for give the opportunity to meet Mr Mark to represent me on my criminal case. I hired a lawyer before him but it turned to be a traffic lawyer that is trying to do criminal cases at the same time. I revoked that lawyer on my case and my wife google and found Mr Mark, guys let me tell you something without flattering, Mr Mark was the best lawyer I can have on my case. I recommended Mr Mark to everyone who need him for criminal and injuries.

Thank you
Whenever the opportunity presents itself to candidly speak with someone who gives you their undivided attention when they don't have to, speak volumes. Mark Eiglarsh is that person.

THE REVIEWS ARE TRUE !!!
G.O.A.T. ! Legal Genius among mere mortals!! Stop looking! Call him! There is no other! For me, I needed an attorney that cared. Mark handled my case like we were family. He is honest, sincere and answered every question and responded quickly every single time I texted or called him. He was humble enough to recognize my participation when writing the Motion was crucial to being successful with the outcome of my case. I carefully selected three different attorneys but ultimately chose Mark because of his reviews. Not one negative review and I can confirm each review is accurate. Do not settle for less, that is exactly what you will get. Less. Not only did Mark successfully negotiate my motion with the State but in addition, as if that wasn’t enough, he successfully argued the termination of my probation with the Court. Just amazing. Life changing. I feel blessed. And just as every blessing has an Angel, let’s not forget his irreplaceable Assistant, Yani. These two people were able to change my life for the better. I cannot thank you both enough.

Mark Eiglarsh is the most experienced, professional attorney. He provided excelent service regarding my son's case and a Great outcome! Special thank you to Yani, who was so patient with all my questions and guided me through the process with so much care. If you are lucky enough to get Mark to defend you then you have been blessed as there is no other Attorney in my opinion that can get a better result. NO extra charges until he delivers what he promisses and the Best of all he represents you as you were his Family member. Thank you Mark! & God Bless you!
