I reached out to Mark to assist me through completing a bankruptcy, being as this time is already hard as it is. I was getting my check garnished and was needing persistent help to get the bankruptcy completed. I paid off my retainer fee in January and my first appointment to fill out the petition was 4 weeks out which I understood and had no issues with. The day comes that we were supposed to complete that and Mark called me and said he did not get the correct documents from me which by the way I know wasn't true because I had sent them a week prior to that day. He then told me he would look over them and call me back in a couple of hours! NEVER CALLED BACK, here comes 2 weeks later several attempts to contact later and he finally calls back just to schedule another appointment 2 weeks out. So here we are 8 weeks after paying my retainer fees and still haven't even had the petition sent in. So here we are 8 weeks later still getting my checks garnished when this could have been cut back by 4 weeks. The day of the 341 meeting comes and none of the documentation I sent Mark was sent to the court! So there I am looking like I haven't done something right. I was put to the back of the line and had to wait for them to review I had the right information to proceed. That day finished and I thought the stress would finally go away. I was completely mis-lead, we are in May Mark was sent a reaffermaion by my car loan Leander in March And barley sent it to me last week. But didn't explain to me the process or what we had to do which by the way he's fine this the whole way through never really have known next steps and I always have to reach out to him for days to weeks to get a response. Also I was supposed to get the refund for the last 90days of my garnishment Mark "said he was sending a demand" four weeks ago and said it was straight forward and would only take 1-3 weeks and I have gotten no communications since then! Sorry about the rant but this has been such a terrible experience and I wish I would have gone somewhere else.

Mark took a family law case for my family and he stated on several occasions that he was filing an emergency motion for custody for my son to see his child. Mark did not even petition the court for visitation or paternity as he stated he would be doing. After six weeks of anxiously waiting for a court date I spoke to Mark and he revealed that he had never filed anything with the courts from the time we retained him to my last conversation with him six weeks later. This was a big blow to my son and myself as we are in distress over not having rights to see my son's baby. Mark did given me my entire retainer back which was good but in a matter of six weeks we could have already had a court date. If Mark knew he was too busy or he was not experienced in family law he should have had the integrity to say so instead of just saying he was filing petitions. I think he might be better in matters regarding Bankruptcy as my son's EAP referred us to Mark which was a big mistake. Now I am left looking for another attorney and I feel helpless.
