I would 100% recommend Attorney Mark Satawa to anyone in need of a knowledgeable, competent, and dedicated attorney! I retained Mr. Satawa for appeal after my husband’s conviction. If I could turn back the hands of time, or knew all the things I know now, I would have retained Mr. Satawa prior to my husband’s conviction.
Attorney Mark Satawa upholds the highest standards of professionalism in and outside the court room. He displays confidence and does not back down. The knowledge he possess in criminal sexual conduct law is top notch. His association to other experts and valuable resources are a force to be reckoned with. Mr. Satawa has earned my trust and has maintained honesty with me throughout this process. We have been to the Michigan Supreme Court. We have been to the United States District Court. He has stood by my side, through all my tears, fighting for my husband’s freedom tirelessly. He has made what seemed like the impossible, possible. Attorney Mark Satawa succeeded and my husband will be coming home!

We are presently engaged with Attorney Mark A. Satawa to represent our son Daniel, who has been wrongfully convicted of a crime he did not commit. When we met and after talking and observing Mark I was convinced that Mark is a true innovator in terms of his approach to defending our son. I feel that he uses his superior people skills and legal prowess to either convince the Michigan State Supreme Court, and at the same time the Parole Board, and also the prosecutor to do what he wants for a client and that is: that justice will be served.
I noticed Mark's focused approach in my son's case, his solid integrity, and his zealous approach in our son's case, have earned my highest respect and therefore I believe Mark will also have the highest respect of the judges before whom he practice.
With confidence, I therefore state that in my opinion Mark is an outstanding attorney and counselor and we along with our son Dan put our trust and hope into his hand, to demonstrate and will proof that an innocent man was wrongfully convicted, imprisoned due to a false allegation by a women, and with the hope that our son's name will be cleared and that he will regain his Freedom again.
A family that is bounded by love and caring.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I am an appellate lawyer. I work with Mark on many of his appeals. He is passionate, organize, committed, and has an excellent command of facts and stays on top of legal developments. I've also read several of his transcripts. At the trial level he is very thorough. I would rather have a root canal than be in the witness box being cross examined by him.
