Veteran legal counsel
Mark guided our company through a very challenging matter. From our first meeting he put our team at ease with the litigation process. Although the matter took two years to resolve, Mark advised us along the way to ensure we got the very best outcome. The result exceeded our highest expectation. We would recommend him or his firm to anyone seeking legal advice.

Outstanding Legal Service
Mark Nolan and his law firm Batson Nolan have handled several litigation matters for my client, a municipal corporation, in the areas of civil rights (Section 1983 litigation), governmental tort liability, and employment discrimination. In each case he and his firm rendered outstanding service while keeping litigations costs to a minimum. He and the other attorneys of his firm are very knowledgeable in their areas of expertise and work hard to obtain favorable results. I would not hesitate to hire Mr. Nolan and his firm again. Great lawyer and litigator!

Insightful, Concise, and Practical
Mark is great at harnessing his extensive legal experience to filter out the "noise" in legalese in order to provide practical advice. Mark has been a trusted resource for me for over 20 years.

Very diligent, and well perpared.
I have used Mark many times over the years from insurance cases to contracts. I was always very pleased with the out come of his work. I have also used Mark on more than one occasion for our business.

Well Advised
Excellence!!! That's the best way to describe Mr. Nolan. He is very thorough. He knows what he's doing, and knows exactly how the system works. If you listen to what he says, and do what he tells you to do, you, like me, will have success. There are a lot of lawyers out there that will make you promises that they can't keep, but Mr. Nolan will tell it like it is, and he will do what he says he will do, and more!! There is no way I would ever trust anyone else to handle any legal matter. By far the MOST COMPETENT legal advice I ever received.

Highly Recommended!
I have worked with Mark on several cases he has handled for the organization I work for. All of these cases were extremely challenging, but because of Mark's experience and knowledge, he was able to lead us with ease through every step in the process. He is without question one of the top businessmen I have worked with. His style and reputation make him one of the best in his field. I highly recommend Mark if you are in need of counsel. You can't go wrong!

Mark Nolan-Outstanding Attorney
I have know Mark Nolan for nearly thirty years and over a period of time that long you truly grow to know a person not only professionally but personally. I hold him in the highest regard, as a friend and also as my attorney. Mark is currently representing me as the result of a serious automobile accident and his conduct, interest in my well being, advice, and legal knowledge of my situation has been outstanding. He knew when he agreed to take my case that in all probability it would be drawn out, at the best at least a year, but probably much longer. That didn't matter to Mark and since retaining him he has answered all of my questions to my satisfaction and been very very responsive to all other matters that have come up. I highly recommend him.

He is also able to explain complex legal principles in a way that non-attorneys can understand so that we can work together as a team to accomlish the goals. I highly recommend him. Very talented!
