Perfect Lawyer
Mark helped me out when a competitor started to poach some of my employees, despite those employees having non-competes. He was transparent on pricing and always available to speak. I will use him again.

Good person & lawyer
Met with Mark about suing former lawyer. Even though Mark didn't take my case I like that he was very familiar with the law.

Only lawyer that returns calls! Amazing!
Attorney Mikhail is the only lawyer I have encountered that returns calls and provides detailed updates on my case. He chases me down to provide updates and request more information! God Bless.

Great Settlement Result
Last year, I retained Mark and Levin & Associates to sue my former lawyer for legal malpractice. Mark was my go-to attorney at the firm and was available evenings and weekends. He made numerous house calls in order to personally answer questions that I had. I found Mark very competent in the field of legal malpractice and highly recommend Mark for those of you looking to sue your former lawyer for malpractice.

He's more than a suit! Thanks MARK!
My family used Mark for real estate closings and estate planning needs. He demystified the law and made it easy to understand. He always responded to my emails and phone calls within a few hours. Takes his job very seriously, yet has a pleasant attitude that is very personable. Thanks, Mark, you are a class act!

Mr. Mark is the best immigration lawyer - knows the law like the back of his hand!
Mr. Mark took on my case and charged a very fair fee. Mr. Mark worked long hours and kept us informed on what was going on. Mr. Mark did an excellent job that is worthy of my praise. Thank you, I know you will be a successful attorney as you truly care!

Thank you very much for taking the time to say such kind words! I am happy I got the result you wanted. All the best, Mark.

Great lawyer to work with! The right lawyer to have in your corner because of his excellent communication.
Attorney Mikhaiel is a good young lawyer. Because he is young, his fees are reasonable and fair, and he is up to date on the recent laws (unlike another older lawyer I dealt with at the beginning of this year). I was most impressed with him providing his cell phone # to me and my family as we dealt with a troublesome matter. He always sounded so positive, and gave me personal attention. If all lawyers were like Mark, our world would be so much better!

A+ Business Knowledge! Pleasure to work with!
We recently sold a company of which my wife and I had for over 15 years. We required a sales agreement to see the deal through. We had no experience in a transaction of this magnitude (approximately $50,000). Mark made us feel very comfortable and protected every step of the way. Mark always made himself available whether it was nights, weekends, holidays (even on Easter!). He even provided us with his personal cell number. And he would answer my text messages! I will only use Mark as my attorney in the future and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing counsel.

Polite Attorney
I found Mark through a recommendation. I decided to hire Mark, as I was purchasing a large tract of land in Western NY for retirement. I wanted a lawyer to review the land sale contract. I was not looking to pay a lot, but wanted to ensure I did not have to deal with any surprises. Mark offered to review the contract for a minimal fee. He pointed out that this specific land sale agreement would only allow me to arbitrate. While the seller (a big real estate developer/owner through the east coast) would not budge on the arbitration clause, Mark did thoroughly explain to me what this meant. I was satisfied with his professional demeanor and coming out to Western NY to meet me. I wish Mark a successful legal career.
