Wonderful Custody Case Support
Mark is a wonderful attorney. He helped me so kindly and professionally through an upsetting divorce with drug and domestic violence issues, and helped manage the process so I secured 100% custody and sole decision making for my children. He is also conscientious about time and money, and his paralegal is a pleasure to talk to. Highly recommend.

Very responsive!
I was shocked when I found out my ex-husband was taking me back to court. After my initial phone consult with Mark Anthony, I knew I wanted him to represent me. His calm reassurance is what I needed and that continued throughout the process. Mark Anthony and Melonie were incredibly patient with me and that was very much appreciated! Because of how my case was handled, I am 100% confident my ex-husband will not contact me again.

A TRUE LEGAL SWORD AND SHIELD
When Mark Barrionuevo says he is your “Legal Sword and Shield” he’s not saying it lightly. Mark gave me 100% and then some! His professionalism, knowledge, expertise, dedication, relentless perseverance, patience, connection, compassion for all parties involved and consistent work ethic to me/my case, aided immeasurably to ensure our success. Alongside Mark is his paralegal Melonie, an asset who is equally professional, dedicated and personable. This team is a true benefit to the legal community. You won’t go wrong with Mark Anthony Law!

Hands down the best in town!
Mark is hands down one of the most calm and creative lawyers I've ever had the pleasure to work with. I was treated like family, He remembered important details during the entire process and more importantly live in court. I felt fully prepared when it was my turn to answer the questions. I had no concept of how custody cases would go. I'm super happy I had Mark to guide me along the way. I wish I could tell you how your case was going to end, But if you want the best odds I would choose Mark Anthony's law firm.

Great Results!
We are very pleased with Mark's efforts in ensuring that our daughter was well represented in her divorce. Specifically your diligence and persistence in making sure that her ex-husband provided the necessary and crucial documents, which he tried to suppress several times, during the divorce process. This work paid off for our daughter in allowing the judge to see clearly the circumstances of her situation and we are pleased with the fair and equitable outcome. In addition to this, you approached her case with empathy and your paralegal Melonie was very attentive and helpful to us during this process. Thank you again for all your efforts.

My forever attorney!!
I have been going through custody hell for over 7 years. I have been through 2 attorneys during that time. They were awful! I lost a lot of money, time and hope in the process. Mark was referred to me by a Denver firm and came highly recommended. I was told he handles high conflict cases like mine. I called Mark and I immediately hired him to start working on my case. He jumped in with both feet and did the most thorough job I have ever seen! He was not only prepared, organized and detailed, he was also knowledgeable, quick with motions and responses, and went above and beyond what I initially hired him to do. We had our court hearing a few days ago and Mark was persuasive, determined, and basically a miracle worker! We had a pretty big breakthrough in the case BECAUSE of Mark! I am so thankful!!!! I will never need to “shop” for a different attorney! I found the one I have needed! I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Mark!

The BEST
Once again, I retained Mark as my attorney for a very "tricky" case. Although in the past (prior to Mark), the courts did not seem to take much interest in myself raising concerns about my case, Mark was attentive and able to get it done. This was a long-time-coming and definitely made easier with Mark; along with being as stress-free as it could be, for myself and my family. Mark is strategic, his professional ethics are amazing, as well as being personable and straight to the point. It is difficult to find attorneys who are the whole package, like Mark. I have referred a few people to Mark and he is working just as well for them!

If you need the best, you've found him!
Mark and his paralegal Melonie do not stop to help you! If you have a question, they are both available by phone, email or text. Mark and Melonie have gone above and beyond to keep my husband informed about our upcoming hearing. Mark has helped us to prep for the hearing so that we can have the best outcome possible. If you are in search for a lawyer, Mark needs to be your choice. Additionally, if you are a dad and feel that the law is not on your side, Mark will make you a believer that the law can and does accommodate and care for dads with the right scenario and planning!

Outstanding
Outstanding and professional! I retained Mark after filing and right before temporary orders. He advised me very well as to conduct and communication with my ex. I made some big mistakes which led to my divorce and put at an extreme disadvantage with regards to parenting time. He helped me set up supervised visits with my kids. Mark also coached me through some of my low points when I became frustrated with the process and discouraged. He is very professional and courteous. I especially appreciated the access to legal advise via phone, text, and email. When you call in need, he answers. Through the mediation process and final orders hearing, Mark helped me attain a far better deal/parenting plan than I ever thought possible. His paralegal is also outstanding, fast, and professional. If I need legal representation again, I will definitely go with Mark Anthony Barrionuevo.

Awesome Lawer
At a time when I was in need of a competent attorney, I was able to connect with the Mark Anthony Law firm. I could not have been happier or more satisfied with the results and outcome of my case. Working with Mark and his paralegal Melonie was not only a productive, satisfying experience, but was very pleasurable all along the way. Both Mark and Melonie are very competent, knowledgeable and extremely pleasant to work with. They answered my every question with great ease and navigated me through every stony area and rough patch I had to cross. I would highly recommend the Mark Anthony Law firm to anyone in need of a competent, effective, expedient and efficient law firm.

DIVORCE
Thanks!! I would recommend everyone to Mark. I had to go back to court with my ex wife because she was trying to take advantage of me and I hired Mark to represent me and he did a great job helping me push back and fight for me to get a fair deal. If you are looking for someone that has your back and KNOWS THE LAW, GO TO MARK! Thanks Mark

He is the best of the best
Mark was an amazing attorney. He very very honest about every step that he took with my case. He informed me about what to expect and was very patient with all of my questions. When we went to court he made sure that all of my concerns were addressed and that we fought for everything that I had asked for. The best thing of all besides my case turning out good for me was that he came under budget. I highly recommend Mr Barrionuevo for all legal needs.

When in doubt, you need Mark!
If you're in doubt, hire Mark Anthony Law Firm! Without going in to detail, my husband discovered an urgent and immediate need to escalate a concern to court for the safety of my step-sons. The court system seems to navigate in a way in which moms are always favored but Mark succeeded in turning that stigma around. We are SO thankful for Mark and Melonie (his para-legal). They worked around the clock to collect needed items for our case. They kept us in the loop every step of the way. They are available to my husband and I any time of day with questions and never make me feel ignorant with my millions of questions. Mark even came up with future suggestions on how to save money for us since we will be continuing to work with them for future hearings. He is not a salesman and truly is doing this to help parents and children in need! Thank you thank you!

Exceeding expectations!!!
I found myself in need of a lawyer for a second time dealing with my ex-husband. I have dealt with many lawyers before. I was NOT looking forward to this case and dealing with yet another lawyer. I found Mark Anthony, spoke with him felt there was just something different about him and hired him. No "salesman" type speech or right off the bat kind of thing where lawyers make you feel like "yeah your right I don't deserve that! I am in the right here!" He was great! He didn't email/call you for every little thing, charge you by the second(like it seems most do) His invoices are simple and easy to read. More over Mark really had my children and I's back. So much so we settled in mediation! Something I KNEW was a waste of time and money. I felt great to say NO to my ex-husband on everything he was offering just flat out NO and him have to take MY offer! I cannot begin to express the importance of that. He had our interest at heart from the day I signed the contract. I know dealing with my ex I will surely need a lawyer again, I will choose Mark Anthony again hands down. He is honest, not greedy and has his clients best interest in mind at all times!  Sometimes there's no way around it you just have to have a lawyer and it stinks, this has been my best experience with a lawyer ever. Thank you Mark Antony seriously from the bottom of my heart Thank you!

Outstanding Representation!
From start to finish, Mark Anthony Barrionuevo is a top-notch, dedicated to success attorney. His mild manner and personal concern for your case are evident in his attention to detail, formation of a winning strategy, and presentation of your case. His knowledge of case law, courtroom proceedings, interaction with the judge, opposing counsel, and witnesses were all exceptional. His forward and responsive thinking at times left opposing counsel speechless, confused, negating their facts and evidence in a professional manner, which garnered respect from the court, judge, all parties involved, and thus lead to a successful trial outcome. I would highly recommend Mark for personal representation.

The Best of the Best
I Hired Mark because I was in a relationship for 9 years and things quickly went south with the other party with threatening text messages, and not giving my property back including my dog. Mark was there from the very first phone call, I always felt like I could openly speaking with Him. Mark explained anything I needed and he always kept in contact with me through out my case. If you need someone who will be there for you every step of the way, choose Mark. If you want someone on your side who cares about you and your case, choose Mark. If you need help call Mark! He helped me out with a pretty scary issue where my dog was not being given back to me because of something that wasn’t my fault. My spouse kicked me out and changed the locks, so I couldn’t get back in. I was worried I would lose everything but, Mark got everything sorted out after just a couple of meetings. I would hire him again. If you need any legal help, I highly recommend Mark and his team. Thank you!

Professional, compassionate, strategic- overall excellence!
I’m grateful to have had Mark Anthony Law as my legal sword and shield throughout my high conflict divorce case. He strategically fought for and secured permanent protection for me and my children. We are close to the end and I am confident that I will receive my marital portion of assets, something that would not have been possible without Mark’s expertise! I highly recommend Mark Anthony Law to all who need representation for difficult family cases.

Shark who knows his stuff.
I honestly can not say enough wonderful things about Mark Anthony Law. Mark and his team are very professional and kind. They genuinely go out of their way to help their clients and make them feel safe and in good hands. I am a single mom going through a lot and Mark was so patience and understanding. He and his team walked me through the process of everything and took the time to reassure me. With me being a single mom money tight but mark is fair. I will never use or Recommend anyone other then Mark Anthony Law! If you actually listen to his advice you will get places. Thank you for being my shield

Best of the Best
I was referred to Mr. Anthony a few months ago when my attorney at the time failed to fully help me out. I read and heard many good things about him online and from other people my wife had told me about. From the moment I had gone to his office and left I knew I was getting the best legal consul I could get. I'm in the military and sometimes communication is a challenge for me during, his law office still continued reaching out through email and contacting my wife when I was unable to communicate.

Mark is the most considerate, kind-hearted l, and strategic attorney I have had the privilege of having work on my cases! Life is a mess and can have some hurdles that shouldnt have been in place and/or hard to overcome; he made it as stress-free as possible for us! My kids come first; and he knew so. So happy to have had him on our side. And if he's not on your side, you should rethink it!:)
