  • Tonya Frazier Burleson

    I have known Mark Polson for over twenty years. In my opinion, Mark Polson is one of the best DUI defense lawyers in the state of Alabama. I have spoken with him regarding DUI defense issues on many occasions and have even been privileged to work on a case with him. His knowledge of DUI defense is cutting edge and his skill is exceptional. I have also been present at several seminars where he was a speaker. I always found his presentations to be among the most helpful, creative and insightful that I have ever attended on the subject of DUI defense. I have the highest respect for his skills and ability. He is truly an exceptional attorney.
