Mark was a pleasure to work with!
I am happy to highly recommend Mark Hefter. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. He spent a lot of time reviewing the case materials, familiarizing himself with the technologies involved, and communicating the legal issues to me in a clear and concise manner. He was passionate about my case, and was able to right an injustice and get us the legal result we were seeking. I am extremely grateful for his hard work and counsel on my case!

Excellent
Mark was straightforward from the get-go about what he thought of my case which I really appreciated. He answered my calls and emails very promptly (usually same day) and always addressed my concerns thoughtfully if something unexpected came up and I needed his advice. I was always pleasantly surprised at how much time he took to speak with me and go over my concerns. From the first day I spoke with him until the day we came to a settlement, Mark was always very clear with me about what steps we were taking and what my options were. He was great to work with, would highly recommend!

Mark Hefter has handled a couple of cases for my daughter. He is very well educated in his fields but still puts his clients first. He is very thorough in finding all of the facts before pursuing a case. I am very impressed with his honesty. I would recommend him to anyone.
