Posted by John,
Hired Mark to deal with a charge of academic misconduct brought against me. From day 1 he handled every aspect of the entire arduous process, and was very knowledgeable on how things were going to go. He knew what info he needed from me and once he had it he went to work. He contacted my school and filed tons of paperwork getting all ducks in a row for my academic trial. This included contacting multiple witnesses, and getting written testimonies from each of them, and going back and forth with the school (played hardball) to get more information that was crucial in proving my innocence. He even went so far to have me do a mock trial in his office to prep me for the real trail... very thorough. The trial result was not in my favor but Mark had a 9-page appeal ready to go the next day. On my behalf, he appealed the decision to the VP of my University and the ruling was completely overturned. Without Mark's knowledge of this whole process, and the appeal process, I would not have had a positive outcome at all. In addition to failing the class, I was also facing possible suspension from the university. Very glad I hired Mark Weiker to save me.

I was unlawfully terminated by my employer while on FMLA leave in an attempt to deny me short-term disability benefits and wages. As soon as I got my termination letter I contacted Mark Weiker and he responded to me the same day.
In the same week he had submitted a letter to my employer on my behalf and we were able to resolve the issue without litigation. I am now able to file my short term disability claim and my employer agreed to pay me my full wages for the two weeks they did not allow me to return to work. If I had not reached out to Mark Weiker I know that I would have missed a full month of wages.
Mark is pleasant to work with, very professional, and takes the time to listen to your situation to understand it fully. I was also very satisfied with the fees in comparison to other firms I had first looked at.

I endorse this lawyer. Mark is an excellent lawyer, particularly in the areas of education and labor and employment law issues. I used to work in the same Firm as Mark and observed first hand his professionalism and skills. I understand he has now broadened his practice to include representing students in issues with their school districts. If I was a student, I would certainly want Mark representing me.
