We highly recommend Mark to anyone needing legal representation.
We were very, very happy with our decision to hire Mark. We found Mark thru a referral from a close friend. We had never been in a situation where we needed to hire an attorney so the initial process was a bit foreign to us. Mark made us feel very comfortable and helped put us at ease while still being objective and realistic about the potential outcome of our case. Mark worked hard for us, advocated for us, and helped to educate us about the legal process. The outcome of our case was extremely positive. We are incredibly fortunate to have connected with Mark and would highly recommend him to anyone needing legal representation.

Mr. Langston is terrific. Professional and looking out for client’s best interest. Great at explaining the process along the way in a manner that a layperson could understand. Well prepared for court proceedings and strong negotiator behind the scenes.

Outstanding Representation!
Mark, assisted a close family member on a sensitive case involving a criminal charge of leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving and criminal mischief. Mark expertly and patiently guided us through the process and was by our side every step of the way. We obtained a much better than expected result and thankfully avoided trial. This was all due to Mark's experience and expertise. My family will always be grateful to Mark.

Amazing Defense Lawyer
Finding myself in need of criminal defense was one of the most terrifying phases of my life. Mark Langston was the hero that saved me. He is an extremely skilled man and is extremely well known in the legal community. He has a good reputation among prosecutors, judges, et cetera. He is personable and easy to work with and he ensured that I was well informed about everything throughout the legal process without sugar coating anything. Furthermore, he is very professional and made me feel like I was in good hands. He fought hard for the best possible outcome for me, and I am very thankful for his skill set and the outcome that it brought me. He has experience working with CU students. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone seeking a lawyer.

Hardworking, knowledgeable, and excellent communicator
Hardworking, professional, and thorough, Mark Langston guided us through every step of the legal process. He was straightforward in presenting the facts, was knowledgeable in the complexities of the law, remained positive but realistic, and helped us manage our expectations throughout. Most importantly, he was skilled in achieving favorable results. Mr. Langston was an excellent communicator and strategist, promptly responding to our questions, respecting our input, and keeping us informed. He was also fair and clear in regard to all fees and charges. During an extremely difficult time, it was a great comfort to have him providing legal representation for our family member.

the best
My son needed the services of Mr. Langston earlier this year . We interviewed several attorneys in Boulder and Mark was clearly the most knowledgeable. He didn't always tell us what we wanted to hear, but in hindsight i can say that he always spoke the truth. Mark exceeded my expectations and i appreciate him for what he did during a difficult time.

One Kind of Superman
Mark Langston is a wonderful Lawyer; he was nonjudgmental for an embarrassing issue in my life that could really have affected my future and career. The charges and sentencing were minimized drastically, resulting in some community service and one class. He was very efficient and maintained contact with me until the probation period was over (a year later) so that the charges could fully be removed my record. Overall he was a superman that really made a bad situation a lot better. Thanks!!!

Mark did a great job in my case...
I was charged with DUI. Mark worked with me to guide me through the legal process, represented me well in court, and helped me through the post trial process. I strongly believe his comments to the court after I pled guilty influenced the judge in his sentencing decision. Mark's comments in court on my behalf in themselves were worth every penny of the legal fees. I would recommend Mark to anyone fighting a DUI.

Excellent help when you need it most
We faced a difficult family crisis and despite the fact that we were separated by thousands of miles, Mark made us feel like help was just around the corner. He had a no nonsense approach and helped us navigate difficult choices and achieve a result that was the best we could hope for under the circumstances. He explained everything thoroughly with patience and never made us feel patronized. He has continued to help us over the months and years as our case spanned an extended time line in two states.He has always been professional, timely and fair.

Marijuana is Not Always Legal
If you’re under 21, it’s still illegal. Mark helped me get my charges reduced to a minor charge. He was professional, knowledgeable and honest about my entire experience. He walked me through the process and didn’t hide anything from me. He was responsive to needs and was fair with his fees.

Excellent Attorney Under Very Difficult Circumstances
Mark was literally a life saver. My adult child was arrested on several drug violations. We were several thousands of miles away when this occurred. Mark knew exactly what to do in order to first make sure that the client was released from jail quickly. Mark then guided us successfully through the legal process which took several months, making sure we made the right moves both for the health of the client and the success of the case. Over the entire period, Mark was supportive, responsive and knowledgeable about the process. The client received probation even though a prison sentence was a distinct possibility. I fear what the result would have been if we had not had Mark as our attorney - our child's future might have looked a lot different.

As good as it gets
I had a some unique circumstances in my experience with Mr. Langston as my case on which he was working was opened with a different attorney. However, from my first correspondences with Mr. Langston I knew that I had made a good decision to switch. Mark's diligence, approachability and empathy made it feel as though my case was the only one he had. Communications were clear, anticipated my questions and incredibly quick. Having inherited my case only after the ruling was made it is hard for me to provide much on his work up to that point in a case life-cycle, but I received nothing but the best and quickest possible outcomes from the point that Mr. Langston took over on my case. He was most's first recommendation when I first sought an attorney and I wish I had chosen him from the start.

Integrity and Commitment, Excellent Lawyer
Mark Langston handled my case efficiently and professionally. He was knowledgeable of the available local resources and thus he was able to recommend the ones that were best suited to my current situation. He communicated the overall plan initially and then kept me informed in a timely manner as my case proceeded. I recommend Mark Langston without reservation, he brings integrity and commitment to his practice of the law.

Don't use anyone else. Mark will truly help.
Parents of CU students: If your son or daughter has done something stupid, like getting a dui or dwai in Boulder(as my son did), Mark is absolutely the attorney you should hire. He will listen without judging. He truly knows the Boulder and Colorado legal systems. Most importantly for me, as a parent, he spent a great deal of time educating my son (and me) on exactly what to expect. He doesn't sugar coat it either, but he is extremely encouraging that the issue will eventually be in your child's past - as long as they listen to him and don't get themselves in further trouble. He truly tries to educate your child along the way. He is a parent himself and certainly understands the challenges of raising children. His rates are on par or a bit less than most attorneys who provide the same services (but they don't have Mark's knowledge and care.) Students: If you find yourself in need of an attorney in Boulder for a dui or dwai, call Mark, now, and then listen carefully to everything he says. He will guide you through the very difficult process, but remember, it's up to you to follow through with all of his suggestions. If you've already been arrested, the damage is done. Don't make it worse by hiring an attorney without Mark's knowledge. When I first hired Mark to defend my son's dwai, my son initially thought it might be best to listen to what his friends said and experienced when they went through the same situation. Very quickly, my son learned that his friends didn't know crap. He then took an about face and did every single thing Mark suggested. By listening to Mark and following through, my son was able to stay in school and minimize his legal punishments rather dramatically. This does NOT mean he will "get you off"; that is nearly impossible in today's strict anti-dui society. Colorado, and especially Boulder, are extremely strict on all impaired driving; they are especially cracking down on drivers who are stoned (weed). So, if you've been arrested, it's time to grow up and take your punishment because it is coming your way no matter what. Call Mark; he is your best chance to minimize and educate. And then do yourself and everyone a favor, please don't ever drive again while impaired. We all like to drink and smoke on occasion, but it's just plain idiotic to get behind the wheel of a 4,000 pound weapon. Good luck and have patience. You'll get through this.

Represented by the Best in Boulder
I had known Mark personally for years. When I retained his services, not only was he someone I sought out, but he came highly recommended by his peers locally and even outside the state reaching as far as CA., his reputation preceding him in other jurisdictions. Mark is the consummate professional. He kept me informed appropriately, advising me and providing counsel with the utmost professionalism and with complete confidence. He is highly regarded by his peers and the justice system which makes a difference in representation. Additionally and how he represented me as a client was certainly proof positive. I have the highest regard for Mark and his office.
