Amazing Attorney!
Mark was awesome with me and my case. I had no idea what I was doing when I first had to reach out for help and he was great with me. He made everything super easy and explained everything in detail. I had a lot of questions (a lot a lot) and he answered everything for me and never seemed bothered even though I knew they were dumb questions. In my defense, I am very young and shouldn't have had to do any of this anyways but Mark was so so helpful! He was super nice throughout the whole thing and got back to me within 30 minute to an hour anytime I sent him an email. He was also less expensive than anyone else I could find which is always a plus! I would 100% recommend him for anyone. Amazing attorney! I am very pleased!

Assistance with Chapter 7
Mark was extremely helpful in walking me through the process of filing Chapter 7. He was courteous, professional and very knowledgeable. I would recommend him.

Successfull Chapter 13 Completion!
Mark is very approachable and compassionate. He is very knowledgeable and concise, explained things very well. He was always happy to answer any questions we had, however, sometimes he took a bit of time to return emails. In the end, and with Mark's valuable help along the way, we were able to complete the bankruptcy successfully.

Mark was fantastic to work with! He took care of everything with our Chp was so nice to have a lawyer that was knowledgeable, on top of everything and so easy and nice to work with. Even years later, if I happen to need some paperwork from our filing, he is more than happy to help and give me copies of whatever I need.

Painless chapter 7
Mark took great care of us! I was thrilled that he got us through a Chapter 7 with no problems and very little effort on our part. He has the knowledge and the connections to get things done right.

I have hired Mark on more than one occasion. He is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. He is on the forefront of the law and this age of communication. I appreciate being able to send a quick email to get answers, rather than trying to plow through assistants and staff members to get answers. He communicates directly with me, and I think it is rare to actually communicate with the attorney instead of their secretary. He does a great job, is compassionate and understanding, and explained things in a way that I could understand clearly. Totally worth it!

Very Grateful
I recently applied for a business loan, there had been a hiccup with my past bankruptcy. I needed help, so I called Mark's office and to my surprise he answered the phone. Being that it had been a case from 1998, he was able to not only find the old case, but emailed me the documents I needed to close my loan! I am very grateful for a timely response, and not giving me the run around, like most attorney's would. I am very grateful to you, and best of luck to your firm. Thank you Kindly,

Bankruptcy was quick and easy
I hired Mark for a bankruptcy last year that I initially tried to do on my own until I realized how confusing and tedious not only the instructions were but the whole process would have been. Mark was recommended to me and I met with him two or three days later. He told me in simple terms what to bring in for the next meeting and gave me step by step instructions that were easy to understand and follow. Mark kept me updated in the process and would email me reminders of what was needed next. He made it extremely easy and I was surprised how fast it was filed and completely finished. Any time I had a question Mark got back to me in a timely manner. I would recommend Mark to anyone who was filing a bankruptcy.

Solid bankruptcy attorney
Mark did a good job guiding us through the Ch13 filing process, as well as several issues that arose during our payment period. He is very knowledgeable, but was at times hard to reach.
Posted by anonymous | February 11, 2013
Mark met with us for a 30 min free consultation and then helped us decide what was better for us to file and then he took it from their. We gave him what he needed and he made a stressful situation a good one. The only complaint I had is he only liked to communicate through email and he was not good at getting back to us when we needed to be notified things by the court. ie. The court changed the date we needed to make a filing fee payment and they notified him not us and he didnt call us BUT he did pay the balance when the court contacted him. Mark did a ton of work for us and we DO refer him to everyone we know.

Do not hire this lawyer
This Lawyer is not to be trusted, he totally messed up the paperwork for our bankruptcy, and then when we tried to contact him by phone, the number he gave us was disconnected, we went to his office and it was closed, we lost the money we gave to him to handle our bankruptcy, then we hired another lawyer and when we went to bankruptcy court and were waiting to go in, he showed up with another client, saw us then quickly left the room with his clients...NO TO BE's criminal what he got away with...tried to file a complaint, but nothing was done, the judge said that we couldn't file a chapter 7, because it was denied for lack of proper filing and that we would have to file a Chapter 13, which we did...DO NOT HIRE MARK R. EMMETT AS A LAWYER OF ANY KIND
