Contested Divorce with Children
Mark fought for me every step of the way from day 1. My ex-wife tried to take my kids away by making false allegations and leave me no custody. Not only did Mark do what was necessary to help prevent that, he was pivotal ensuring I received 50/50 custody. He was very responsive and supportive of all my questions & concerns. I can’t thank you enough.

Excellent Divorce/Family Lawyer
If you need a good family/divorce counsel, do yourself a favor and look no further! I spent months with a lawyer that did nothing for my case, super passive, and uninterested. I felt alone, lost, stressed, and helpless. Not to mention I did not trust her nor felt she had my best interest in mind or provided me the right counsel. Mark was great from the very beginning. I could sense his drive, knowledge, and willingness to help resolve the case. I did not feel any doubts in hiring. I stopped feeling alone and in despair during this whole process immediately. He truly reads and listens, so you do not have to keep repeating details and facts. He provided great counsel, was always professional, straightforward, understanding, available, and super responsive.

Mark was amazing to work with. He was always extremely fast to respond to messages and always willing to set up a call to talk through things. You can tell he is genuine individual who wants the best for his clients. I would recommend Mark if you are looking for a divorce lawyer.

"One of the Best"
I was very impressed with the consultation process and advice provided by Mark on a complicated Divorce Modification case he handled for me. Throughout the process, Mark was always timely in his actions and responses to my queries. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for this type of Family Law services. Mark, thank you very much!

cannot recommend enough!
Mark and his staff went above and beyond to help with my divorce. The process was made far simpler than I expected and I was informed regularly on the status of my case. I have already referred Mark to friends, and will continue to do. Beyond thankful this already difficult process was not made any harder than it needed to be.

Worth every penny!!
Ok, this divorce started out with an expedited serve to my ex. I dealt with an exparte in the very beginning, I was given great advice from the get go. From emergency text responses to answers to questions that I emailed late at night that happened to pop in my mind, his response time is noteworthy! If he wasn’t in court, he was extremely responsive! This case was very trying for both her attorney and mine (Mark). He was able to reassure me of any insecurities I had during the process. He will tell you exactly how it is, with no buffering words, straight to the point. He is definitely worth the price,IMO. He mentioned MULTIPLE times that he wants this settled as soon as possible. He did everything he could to try to move the process along as quickly as possible, to include badgering her attorney. I would without hesitation, retain Mark again! Thanks, Mark!

Highly Recommended
It was a great experience working with Mark. Although no legal matter is pleasant, Mark made the process seem smooth. He thoroughly explained all my available options and objectively listened to my concerns and wishes. He kept me informed throughout every stage of the process and promptly returned phone calls and email inquiries. I greatly appreciated his diligence, transparency, and professionalism.

Mark did a great job in resolving my case!
Mark was great to work with. From day one, he listened and made sure he fully understood my case history. My goal was to modify my child support, since we have had a change of circumstances. All went well! Very happy with Mark's work.

Outstanding Lawyer
Absolutely fantastic. Always made me feel confident and kept me informed throughout the entire process from start to end. I personally would recommend their services. Mark helped me in my family law matter not only to get the outcome I desired but helped me push through obstacles when they came up fast. He always made me feel like my case was top priority. They helped me through the hardest time in my life and I couldn't be more grateful.

Steady
Mark is a steady hand when it’s needed. My case had volatility and I was unsure what the end result would be. Mark assured me that the plan we set forth would work and it did. Thanks!

Can’t say enough good.
I can’t say enough good about my experience with Mark Wortman Law. I had actually hired another attorney before him and had a horrible experience. I interviewed 10 attorneys before finally landing on Mark, and he proved over and over that he was the right choice! What I loved about working with Mark is that from the beginning he was straightforward and honest about the reality of my situation. During the process of divorce he was there to answer any questions I had, he was brilliant at helping me strategize, and it turned out to be an incredibly efficient and smooth transaction once he got involved. I’ve had several situations and questions come up post divorce and he has responded in the same timely manner as he did during the divorce. I highly recommended Mark A. Wortman Attorney at Law!

Child custody
I know this is a little late, but Mark helped me in 2015 with a custody case. Everything was clear and I now am the custodial parent of my son. Very informative, and a good ear to listen.
