My passion for checking government and police overreaching suits me ideally to examine the facts of your case to determine the best possible defense.

The Best
I am so very appreciative for the time and attention given to me by Attorney Mark Youngblood. His patience and care made this a much less terrifying experience. I was completely naive and Mark always took the time to thoroughly answer my questions. He clearly presented options as they unfolded and let my specific needs shape the way in which he handled the case. Ultimately, his advice, patience, experience, and hard work, opened favorable possibilities. I am so extremely pleased, with the outcome of my case. I feel most fortunate is my lawyer.

If you need an advocate - attorney Youngblood is second to none
Marc is highly skilled at balancing pragmatic approaches while still vigorously pursuing aggressive outcomes. I have worked with many more expensive attorneys, but never one so focused on his clients' best outcome. His is not a style of bluster and posturing. He knew our case thoroughly and waited patiently for opportune moments to champion his well conceived strategies. Too notch - in every way. I felt like he was in my corner from beginning to end. He seemed to feel the ups and inevitable downs (almost) as keenly as I did. Youngblood is a huge asset for anyone contending with the Florida legal system.

Experienced, efficient, excellent customer service, works for the client
9 months ago I did a very stupid thing and drove when I drank. I was arressted on 3 violations. This was a very humiliating experience. When I met Mr. Youngblood he never made me fill bad for what happened. In fact he made me feel better knowing that I was in capable hands. Mark worked earnestly for me and was able to get a 6-month probation sentence, no restitution, and the ability to get off probabtion early. Throughout the entire process Mark appeared in court and I never had to do anything until the end when I went to court to be sentenced. When I walked in the courtroom all the legal people smiled when Mark walked in and a couple told me he was the best and I was lucky. Since that time I have met many legal, probabtion, counseling, and court people. Everyone I encountered asked me who my attorney was. When I said Marks name everyone talked about how good and nice he was. Well Mr. Youngblood is professional, experienced, efficient, and most of all he keeps in contact so you always know what is happening. That is not a standard lawayer practice. I don't know much about the law but I would recommend Mark to all my friends and anyone who finds themselves in trouble. Mark will help you and do it with saving your dignity.

The worst defense attorney ever!
He Had done nothing but took my money. He did not even bother to attend some court events. He had me convicted of the crimes I haven't even commited. I have been convicted and served time in jail for false misdemeanor charges. He was very unprofessional and unresponsive. Beware!
