Mr.Abell represented me at a hearing for Social Security Disability Benefits. Prior to the hearing I was "permitted" one, and ONLY one 15 minute conversation with Mr.Abell. He flat out told me that he would not be available for future conversations until the day of the hearing. I did have a couple of important things to ask after our solo conversation, but was told by his office that Mr.Abell was "a little tied up". I did leave my call back number but he did not return my calls.
Mr.Abell told me to arrive 30 minutes prior to the hearing; which I did. He did not arrive until 8 minutes prior to the hearing and when he did, he brought me into a room with a table and chairs. He then gave me two forms to sign and another longer form to complete to list out all of my medications. As I completed the forms, Mr.Abell sat across from me and occupied himself clicking away on his personal computer and mobile device the entire time. Then a woman came into the room and we were very hastily ushered out of the small room and into a hearing room.
Given Mr.Abell's preoccupation with his computer and phone, I never had a chance to talk with Mr.Abell. I was bewildered at Mr.Abell’s indifference to my presence. Once we were sworn in, things got off to a negative start. The Judge asked Mr.Abell for some kind of record and/or document. I don’t know what, specifically, The Judge was requesting. Mr.Abell stated it had been delivered that (same) morning. The Judge informed him that this was “unacceptable” and it would not be admitted into evidence (or something like that). The Judge was really displeased. Following the conclusion of the hearing, I had anticipated having a conversation with Mr.Abell, but he did not afford more than a polite “good-bye” on is a hallway and he turned and promptly left the building via an exterior door. I was dizzied, stunned and dumbfounded, to say the least. I felt trivialized and very confused. I believe that ‘people skills’ are required in a situation like mine and that Mr.Abell was thoroughly indifferent to me or of my concerns.

Mark did a complete estate plan for us, he was very business like and professional. The trust documents and the binder that he gave us looked great. He sat down with us and explained everything that we had questions about so that we could easily understand it. We would engage his services again and are going to refer him to some of our friends.

Mark is a great guy to work with. He always has a positive attitude and has attention to detail second to none. He is results driven and very organized. He is professional and passionate about his work, but above all, he truly cares about the people he represents and is unwaveringly honest. I highly recommend Mark.

I strongly endorse Mark Abell. I have always found him to be professional, smart, and caring. His legal analysis is always thorough and reliable, and he always has his client’s interests at the forefront of every decision. When I have a client in need of estate planning, Mark Abell always makes the short list.
