Mark is excellent I didn't want a lawyer after my accident but my family insisted on it and I am glad Mark Bishop was my lawyer. He really kept me informed

Mark handled our case very diligently. He always kept us informed and was readily available for personal meetings or phone conferences. He promptly replied to our phone messages. In every step, he explained very clearly about our case and I am very glad that our case was handled to our immense satisfaction.

On May 9, 2013 at around 11:30 pm, Janet S. was hit by a drunk driver. Janet was coming home from work. In the accident she suffered fractures to her neck and spine in 7 places. The most serious of the fractures was to "C-2" otherwise known as "the hangman's fracture" (because that is where the noose of the hangman breaks your neck). Janet suffered several other -- far less serious -- injuries as well. Our three year old car was totaled. Happily, Janet survived without debilitating damage and has only minor lingering discomfort (which also might be age-related).
We asked some friends of ours from church who are lawyers if they could recommend a good and fair attorney to us as we recognized that we would need representation. The person who hit Janet was only marginally employed and had only the barest minimum of liability auto insurance that would cover a mere 20,000 of any single accident. That amount could not even cover the emergency room costs and Janet's stay in the intensive care unit.
We asked our friends from church for a reference to an attorney who was experienced, responsible, and not a caricature of the "ambulance chaser" who runs adds seeking any possible ways that a law-suit could be brought against anyone. Fair play and justice are high values to Janet and John (her husband). Our friends suggested Mark Bishop, who, at the time was in the HuckBouma firm with them). They said that Mark was good, assertive, successful, fair, and highly regarded among his peers.
Equipped with that heartening recommendation from trusted people, we contacted Mark and he made an appointment with us at our house,
The short account of the matter is that we are most pleased with our choice and will be quick to recommend Mark to anyone who seeks legal representation in a matter such as this.
Mark was very patient with us in answering our many questions. His manner was cool and unflappable throughout. He carried his considerable legal knowledge and expertise with humility and also with confidence.
Both Janet and John have graduate degrees and are professional people but we were overwhelmed by the complexity of what faced us. Mark carefully laid out the various options and strategies that he thought would be most fruitful and helped us to come to a much better understanding of what we could expect in terms of obstacles, time frame, and what we could expect from him.
During the course of the next 18 months Mark switched firms from HuckBouma to Roberts PC. That happened without a wrinkle (other than switching email, telephone, and mailing addresses). In all our other communications and meetings, Mark's organization and attention to detail were most heartening. We saw him pursue a proper resolution while always being thorough and calm during an anxious time for us.
Mark pursued all of the avenues for a good and just settlement that were available to us and now at the end of the process we can say, without reserve, that we were very well served.
