Trustworthy, knowledgeable and direct
We have consulted with Mark King on a few matters including writing up wills for our family and multiple real estate transactions. I truly think that Mark does what is best for his clients and I trust his opinion. He is very knowledgeable and does a great job communicating potential risks and makes recommendations accordingly. He was always very accessible and responsive when communicating with him. We will use Mark King again for any future legal matters.

Thorough and easy to work with
Mark went above and beyond to help me with a car accident I was in. He took care of everything from working with the other person's insurance company as well as the rental car place. Mark took care of things I would have never known to do, and made sure I was fairly compensated. Unfortunately a few years later I was in another car accident, where my car was totaled. I of course hired Mark again and he did not disappoint. He again took the burden off of my shoulders and made sure I was well taken care of, being compensated both for my treatment and the loss of my car.

Family and Estate Planning
Mark helped us with our will, power of attorney, etc. We were admittedly late in getting these things taken care of primarily because we didn't fully understand what we needed or how to get there. Mark was very easy to work with and provided helpful insight into common legal documentation necessary and useful in the family and estate planning process. Mark met with us on our time and we were able to communicate both verbally and electronically along the way which also made things much easier.

Being represented by Mark changed my treatment, compensation and relieved the burden of unfair treatment.
Mark cares a great deal about his clients and goes out of his way to help them get what they rightfully deserve. I was in a car accident in March and attempted to handle it on my own. I was being treated disrespectfully and unfairly by the insurance company. When I became officially represented by Mark King, the insurance adjuster completely changed his willingness to help and be accommodating. Being represented by an attorney completely changed my treatment and allowed me to be compensated fairly.

Great experience with workers comp case
Mark recently represented me on a workers compensation case and I was pleased with the outcome. He was realistic about possible outcomes, discussed options, gave great advice, was transparent throughout the process and provided a strategic approach throughout the life of the case.

Work comp
In 2011 I found out I would need surgery from a work injury. I hired Mark as a result and I am extremely glad I did. After surgery and 8 months of rehab; I was fired by my employer. I had constant contact with Mark thru the entire process. He walked me thru the process and aggressively went after my former employer. Although it's a long process......We won! Mark is definitely for the employee; not the employer! He worked many hours and very hard on my case. That hard work definitely showed when it was time for the hearing. I have already referred a guy to Mark and they won that case too. If you need a great work comp attorney.......Mark King is the guy you want in your corner. Thanks again Mark. Sincerely Russ
