  • Kevin Glenn Patterson

    I have professionally known Mark McDaniel for over 34 years. He is very knowledgeable in the area of criminal defense. He is a highly ethical lawyer whom aggressively defends his clients. I have worked with Mark in the criminal defense realm. He has the respect of the prosecutors and Judges and obtains the best results for his clients. If a young lawyer was starting in the practice of law, they would be well served emulating Mark.

  • John Steven Anderson

    It has been almost 30 years since I first sent a client who needed a criminal law attorney to Mark. I heard back from that client about what a great job Mark did for him. Since that time I have given his name to anyone who has asked for the name of the best criminal defense lawyer in the Memphis area. I have never heard anything but highest praise for Mark's work on their behalf. He is the one I would send a family member to if (heaven forbid) they ever needed a criminal law attorney.
