Mark Cressman
He helped me through five years of Bankruptcy chapter 13. I can ask a lot of questions and Mr Cressman was always patient and there to answer my questions. Was always the advocate for me with the Trustee. Thank you.

Truly cares for his clients!
Mr. Cressman, his wife & staff places the care of there client as if they are family. It was a very stressful time for me due to a car accident. He made sure that everything done was in my best interest. This law firm will go above and beyond for its clients. He is highly recommended! Believe me just meet with him for a consultation! He's not a "big name" lawyer, you meet with him and not a paralegal! That should say something!

Thank you
Mark helped me through a very long and stressful bankruptcy, and I cannot thank him enough for his patience, guidance, and kindness throughout the entire process! Took a lot of the stress and fear out of it all, and always felt he was upfront, honest, and looking out for me and my family. Thank You!

I approached Mark in October with my case, we filed and started the whole bankruptcy process. On New Years Eve he joined me when I had court for bankruptcy, I was his only case that day. To me that meant a lot, especially when I seen quite a few clients without their lawyers. From start to end Mark was forward and truthful, and went out of his way to help me in all possible ways, answered all my questions and made my case very smooth. O thank him a lot, will send him any potential clients that could use a good lawyer.

When everything changed.
At a time where my mother and I had a sudden loss, I was left with what seemed an exhausting and long road ahead. All was left for me to sort and handle on my own with no family to turn to. I was fortunate enough to find Mark. At the time it was December during the Holidays so I left a message @ his office. I was surprised to hear from him shortly after my call and was grateful to have a call returned even at that time of year. Upon meeting Mark, I was at ease and grateful to have a bit of peace for what is still a long road ahead. I would recommend Mark P. Cressman without hesitation, and with great confidence.

Surprising recovery for injury
Mr Cressman worked on my behalf to recover a claim against a local restaurant chain after my fall at one of their sites. They immediately offered and paid for my medical bills. Mr Cressman advised me of the current law (It would not be prudent for me to sue) - yet, he continued to contact the restaurant's attorneys and they made an offer for an additional settlement. The settlement was a surprise and all due to the work Mr Cressman did on my behalf.

Professional and personable
Having worked in the legal profession for 35 years, I have dealt with many attorneys and have been impressed by few. Mark Cressman conducts himself in a professional manner, while maintaining a personable demeanor. He is very easy to talk to, knows the law and kept me informed on a regular basis. He conducted our meetings at my house, making it convenient for me. I would and have recommended him.

Not a good experience
Not the best attorney to hire. Not punctual. Never calls back. Not available most of the time. He was my 3rd attorney but had the worst experience.
