Best Attorney around!
Shaun has to be the best attorney serving the Genesee County area. I have used his services on a few occasions over the years, with great outcomes. He has always been professional, and to the point. Shaun is very responsive to calls and emails, making himself available to answer any and all of the questions I had. He is one of the few attorneys who will actually call you back personally, and in a timely manner. When I was worried the worst was going to happen, he was able to set my mind at ease. If you are in need of a great attorney for criminal or traffic infractions, he should be your first call. Shaun is extremely efficient, knowledge, and well respected by the prosecutors and judges, in the area, exactly what you need in an attorney. Hopefully no more tickets for me, but if it happens, guess who I’m calling. Thank you Shaun!

Saved my life
I had ran a red light while drunk and smashed into a truck, flipping it over(somehow no one was injured). My blood work came back as super drunk. Although this was my first offense Shaun was able to get me off with 18 months probation, some fines and a madd class. Saved me from going to jail or prison. Forever grateful

What a Relief!
As someone who has never been in trouble with the law, I was so scared and a complete nervous wreck searching for an attorney. When I consulted with Shaun Marks, that was the first thing that set him apart from other attorneys. He put my mind at ease and I could tell he truly cared about helping me. I don't think I would've recieved that kind of dedication to my case from anyone else. I felt he was the right attorney to hire and after my case was dismissed, I was so thankful I chose him.

Knowledgeable Attorney
Mr Marks is so professional. He explained to me exactly what i was facing without sugar coating anything. But he also told me what I could do to improve my situation and my life. It will will require work on your part to get sober but if you can Mr. Marks can really help you in your legal situation!

I contacted mr marks after I had been arrested for a dui after going out with coworkers on a Friday. I had never been in trouble my whole life and was scared to death. I contacted his office via email and he called me back immediately. He listened to my situation and never made me feel judged or disrespected. He took on my case and was there with me every step of the way. He took care of everything for me all I had to do was show up to my court dates. I ended up getting the best outcome I could have possibly hoped for 90 day restricted license and 6 months probation. I will be forever grateful and would recommend him to anyone.

There is no better choice!
This man is incredible. I called him the morning of my court date and he moved his schedule around to represent me, hours later! I know that can't always happen but the effort he made is something I'll never forget. He was fair in price and worth every penny. Extremely professional and friendly and helped me remain calm during the most stressful situation I've ever been in. He got me down to almost nothing on my charges and I will be forever grateful. Do not hesitate one more second to call Mr. Marks!! You will not regret it.

DWI w accident
I contacted Mr. Marks on March 19th in regards to a DUI my son had gotten on Feb.22. Because of his high B.A.C. and accident, he was looking at 120 days in jail, loss of driver's lisence and a lot of high fines just to name a few. Mr Marks called me on a Sunday night and we interviewed with him the following Tuesday. My son's next court appearance was today. (March 25th.) With Mr. Mark's help, got my son's charge reduced to "impaired." Thanks to Mr. Marks, my son gets a chance to have his life back. I highly reccomend Attorney Shaun Marks if you want the very best.

Shaun Marks is a superior attorney.
If you need an exceptional attorney, Shaun Marks is your lawyer. I had several driving violations including a couple DWLS infractions. These tickets were a huge embarrassment and I had no idea where to turn. I found Shaun on the internet, read the reviews and made an appointment that same week. I had tickets dating back to 2007 and a file over an inch thick. Needless to say the job Shaun took on was not an easy one, as there were two courts involved and multiple court dates. I could visibly see Shaun is highly respected and has built solid relationships. During one of the appearances the Judge continuously asked “Where is Mr. Mark’s case” meanwhile Mr. Marks was patient, friendly and kept me at ease. Within two weeks Shaun was able to CLEAR my driving record, no driver responsibility fees and not a single point was left on my record. Shaun is AMAZING. He is extremely knowledgeable and I recommend Shaun Marks to anyone who is looking for an attorney to get the job done and get it done right.

2 DUI's, Child Endanderment, Felony Possession & Probation Violation
I was referred to Shaun Marks by an acquaintance; my experience with his services exceeded my expectations. I received two DUI charges for the mis-use of narcotic medication exactly one month apart in two different counties. My charges included a child endangerment and a felony possession (medication not in the legal prescribed container). My DUI’s were reduced to a reckless driving and misdemeanor possession charge. Child endangerment was also dropped, and I never lost my license. I received some probation and fines. In addition, I also had a probation violation; 6 months later. When I went to my probation violation hearing, and ended up in jail. I was facing 1 year in jail with a 250k bond. Shaun Marks was there within the hour and his proficient skills; had me released within a couple of hours from jail on a 1k PR bond. Shaun’s guidance and capability to work in multiple counties was vital in my cases. I have often been told that it’s not always a good idea to allow an attorney from a different county represent you in the county where your case resides. In this situation, I no longer deem that to be a true fact. Shaun had no complexity in negotiating the best outcome no matter what county he was representing me in. I can’t express how pleased I am with the services rendered by Shaun Marks. The dollars remunerated for his services were worth every bit.
