Honest, Trustworthy, and Knowledgeable
We worked with Mark on a contract issues with a home builder and their in house lender. The mortgage company was blatantly violating the law and attempting to keep a large portion of our money that wasn't theirs. We were worried such a complex antitrust matter would take years to resolve... However, Mark met with us and provided a timely and in-dept analysis which clearly determined the lender was violating the law, allowing us the terminate the agreement immediately. The lender conceded and agreed to refund us. Having Mark saved us tens of thousands in up-front costs, not to mention over 100k in a predatory interest rate. Working in the legal field, I have worked with dozens of attorneys in the past. Mark is by far the most honest, responsive, and considerate attorney I've met. He and his staff are incredibly responsive, knowledgeable, and honest. I will be referring him to anyone who needs a contracts, litigation, or business law attorney!

President
My firm is a small business provider of IT services which had a service agreement with a large enterprise client. The client, in our opinion, breached the agreement and refused to pay the balance of the term. I hired a firm that I believed to be experienced in complex cases/contract law to file the complaint. After 9 months and spending tens of thousands of dollars with no satisfactory results, I terminated the original counsel. I posted my case with the Florida Bar Referral Service to find a trusted attorney. I connected with Mark Osherow of Osherow, PLLC. Mr. Osherow is a Florida Bar Board Certified Business Litigation Lawyer since 2006. Mr. Osherow took the time to fully understand the nuances and technicalities of our services and claims. The defendant originally made low offers to settle. In 5 months, Mr. Osherow and his team masterfully and successfully settled my case. I wholeheartedly recommend Osherow PLLC.

Litigation Attorney | May 30
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Mark is an excellent and compassionate attorney; someone you want on your side. He is a staple in the community and well liked and respected by his peers."
Lawsuits and disputes Attorney | Jan 30
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Mark and I had a case against each other. I was very happy when the defendant retained Mark because I knew he'd advocate diligently for his client, but do so honorably and ethically. That makes the entire process more efficient and less costly for both parties. Mark is also one of the few experts in business litigation in Florida. When I needed panelists for a Palm Beach Bar presentation, I turned to Mark. It is illustrative of his character that his former "enemy" in a case would respect him enough to ask him to sit on a panel of experts in front of other lawyers."
