Do not hire this incompetent and useless attorney!!
I paid a $2,500 retainer to mark land to represent me in a case.
He never did anything on my case.
I'm fact the other party obtained a $50,000 judgement against me because Mark land did not even show up for the court date.
After finding out I had a $50,000 judgement against me due to Mark Lands incompetence and malpractice I asked him for his malpractice insurance so I could file an insurance claim.
Mark Land does not carry any insurance to cover his malpractice or protect his clients.
I filed a claim against him with the state bar.
He did not even show up for the hearing at the state bar.
The state bar found him guilty of malpractice, sanctioned him and put him under probation.
In that time I filed a $10,000 lawsuit against him to recover at least some of the money his incompetence and malpractice had cost me.
Surprisingly he showed up for my lawsuit against him and defended himself.
He lost, and I obtained a $10,000 judgement against him.
He called me and stated he would make payment arrangements.
To date I have not received a dime as he complains he is completely broke.
To sum up he stole $2,500 from me under false pretenses. Never did anything in my case. Did not even show up to court to represent me, or let me know there was a court date. Cost me a $50,000 judgement.
Was put under sanction and probation by the state bar.
I have a $10,000 judgement against him which he cannot pay because he is broke.
DO NOT HIRE THIS ATTORNEY.

I don't like cut and dry answers but this attorney answered my question with insight. I appreciate the fact that he didn't just refer me out but handled it with flair. Thank for your legal pizzas!!!

I have known Mark since 2004 and since then I have hired him for everything from contract creation to incorporation to liability waivers and litigation, and he has always done an outstanding job. I've also referred many clients to him and every time he did top-notch work and made me look like a hero to my clients for referring him. As an operations consultant who worked for some law offices I had worked with a lot of corporate attorneys in the past, but since I started working with him Mark is the only attorney I have hired or recommended for corporate work.
Mark has that rare combination of being a brilliant lawyer who speaks plan English. He is able to understand and discuss the legal complexities of a situation at a high level, while still being able to explain complex legal situations in a way that is easily understandable to everyone involved, and I've seen him be comfortable and well received by everyone from corporate executives to blue collar sole proprietors.
I can't say this about many people, but I recommend Mark Land without reservation.
