Fantastic Attorney
I was involved in a motor vehicle accident a few years back and have been suffering from neck and back pain for some time. I was constantly going from doctor to doctor. This process seemes to last forever but Mark would keep on checking in on me to ask how things were going to prepare the case for the next step. He worked diligently and was extemely paitent and understanding. Overall I am extremely pleased with the service he provided and would highly recommend him to anybody in need of a phenomenal attorney.

Great client services.
Mark and his team did a great job in handling my case. Great customer service, very quick response and when I needed some extra help them came through and really stepped it up. They did a great job explaining some difficult legal concepts. Mark would always respond to my e-mails even on weekends and after hours. I am very grateful for Mark and his team for all their support and hard work.

Slip and fall at establishment
For never being in a situation like this before, I was scared going into it. Mr. Mingo made every step easy for me to understand and breaks everything down for you. He would contact me anytime there was any progress or changes in the case, which was nice not to be left wondering what was going on. Anytime I had a question about something, he would respond in a timely manor. Very friendly and easy to work with. I would highly recommend him!

Slip and fall on iced parking lot
My husband asked me to go for breakfast at a local restaurant. We pulled in and parked, as I open truck door I noticed looked slippery but wet (black ice). I carefully got out and down I went tried getting back up and slipped again. I reported that parking lot was very bad and it needs attention, we then ate, paid bill and asked if they got somebody to sand/ salt, as of yet parking lot got no attention, except by the entry doors which had been salted and that was all. I was feeling a bit sore, I'm trying to eat, realized my arm was sore, got home approx. 1/2 hr later I realized I lost mobility and strength in right arm/shoulder. I then went to ER. I had xray done, showed nothing broke, arm in a sling, I was taken off work til follow up with orthopedic which ordered MRI and results were full and partial tear in rotator cuff. This left me with no work, no income. I scheduled surgery asap, so I could get back to work. Recovery was painful, the stress of not working, loss of income, etc. 31/2 months I'm now going back to work. I contacted their insurance to let them know I'm returning to work in which I was told they dont even know if there gonna pay anything. I'm stressed enough and didnt have time to deal with that, due to fact I'm going back to work. I then decided to call Mingo & Yankala. Mark Mingo and his secretary Kim Kempfer were awesome. The both kept in contact with me thru phone or email. Mark Mingo was very good at explaining and finding information needed. He made it a very comfortable atmosphere, explained things thoroughly. In the few times we had met I felt I knew him before this, which I didnt, but he knew more about me than I knew myself. Mark and his assistant Kim Kempfer were kind, caring, and concerned how I was doing. I was very pleased with the outcome. We were able to settle without going to court, but if it would of we were ready. I'm amazed how things work and comes together. I can move on, I'm happy with the turnout and I will refer Mark Mingo to anyone. Thank you Mark and Kim for everything.

Excellent Lawyer
I hired Attorney Mark Mingo to represent me in a motor vehicle case. Throughout the entirety of my case, Attorney Mingo was excellent in maintaining communication in regards to updates and steps to expect. His professionalism and his wealth of knowledge brought me comfort since I knew that he had the experience and skill to represent me every step of the way.

Professional, knowledgeable, prepared
Mark has represented my husband and I for several years. Our cases were not typical, and required vast amounts of research and discovery. Mark was always prepared, never intimidated and represented us well. We got great results. I am forever grateful that he handled our case(s).

The best attorney in town -- hands down ! !
Mark represented me in several complex personal litigation cases over a period of 12 years. He is definitely one of the hardest working and knowledgeable attorneys I have ever known. He is extremely bright, always prepared, and the most dedicated attorney there is. His skills at negotiating during mediation or settlement are unsurpassed. His dedication to your case is equal to the dedication he would exact of himself if he were representing his best friend. If he is representing you, and not the other party -- you are lucky, or you chose well. --- Mark, Thank You for all that you did for us !

Was Fortunate To Find Mark Mingo
I sustained an disabling injury while staying at a Wisconsin hotel. I wasn't considering a legal remedy. Instead, I was trying to represent myself with the insurance company. Mistake! It became clear that I was in over my head, because all I was getting from the insurance adjusters was delay, diversion of blame onto others and frustration. In searching for a personal injury attorney on the Internet, I found Mark Mingo whose firm is in Milwaukee. I got very lucky! I highly recommend Mark to you. He is very professional with years of experience in both negotiation and litigation. Mark has worked both sides of personal injury law. He has defended insurance companies and sued them. He knows the legal landscape and has a working knowledge of many opposing lawyers and trial judges in Wisconsin. I was able to understand the legal process because Mark explained it well as i went through it. You can find his firm on the Internet listed as Mingo & Yankala S.C. If your case has merit and Mark is your attorney, I believe that you too will give Mark your strong endorsement.

Experienced, Professional, Tough
Mark handled my defense case in a personal injury lawsuit. He is extremely knowledgeable in this area. Throughout the process he clearly explained step by step what his approach would be and how he was going to handle my case. He was very patient with me and I felt very much at ease knowing that with his incredible amount of experience he would be able to handle my case that would produce a positive outcome. I was extremely pleased with Mark. I truly believe that without his help the end result of this case would have been much different. Frankly, I was able to sleep better at night knowing Mark was defending my case.

Personal injury car accident
Hired Mark months after a car accident and my health insurance refused to pay my medical bills. Mark took my case, contacted the health insurer and got them to cover the bills, taking the huge expense off my family’s shoulders. Mark is a very knowledgeable lawyer with lots of experience. He handled every aspect of my case and gave proper legal advice on how to proceed as the case developed. Everything he advised me to do really helped the outcome of the case. I would recommend him to anyone I know who is in need of an attorney.

Auto accident settlement
I am pleased to highly recommend, Mark J Mingo. After a serious auto accident, during which I was hit by an unlicensed, uninsured and soon to be bankrupt driver, I chose to consult Mark Mingo and hired him to handle my case. Mark was very helpful, understanding, conscientious and very easy to work with. My injury turned out to be more serious than I or doctors had at first realized and Mark did an excellent job understanding the intricate and obscure medical issues involved and advising me on the case. We were scheduled for trial but went through a mediation process first. I received far more money than I had first expected. Money does not heal permanent disability but in the end I feel that the settlement was fair to both sides. After the settlement, Mark promptly sent me my share of the funds and then continued to work on the details of my case and cleared up all lingering issues with other medical insurers and bills and then sent those additional funds. I greatly appreciate his counsel, help and efforts on my behalf.
