As a colleague I have known Mark Ameli for over 20 years. I have referred numerous civil matters including personal injury, insurance litigation and also mediation/arbitration to Mr. Ameli.
All of the persons that I referred to Mark Ameli were extremely satisfied with his capability, ethics and professionalism. I strongly recommend his legal services.

I had couple of lawyers for different problems in my my life but no one helped me as much as Mr Ameli did, he was the best. He was there whenever I needed him. He was only one phone call away.
I just met him once at his office, but we were always in contact via email, and cellphone.
he handles the cases himself and as good as possible. ( He also has a really great assistant)
He is not one of those lawyers that take people to fantasy land to just get the case. He is trustworthy, helpful, and honest.
The first day, after Mr. Ameli heard about my case, he exactly said how my case was going to end up and sure enough 11 months later my case was closed with not only the same result as he told me the first day but better.
Long story short, he knows the law, he is good at it, and more important that he is a good man.
thanks Mr. Ameli for all your help

I had a TERRIBLE experience with Mr. Ameli over a workers comp case for a professional.
Never retuning calls/emails
Lack of knowledge around workers comp
Not at all trustworthy. He told me to trust him with my case and after signing the contract, never returned my calls.
I had to switch to another attorney and fire him.
Not at all recommended for workers comp case.

Mr. Ameli is simply an exceptional attorney who I would recommend to everyone and anyone. I am a former judge, former magistrate, former prosecutor, and an attorney with 24 years of experience. I still learn from his answers on Avvo on a daily basis and I am constantly impressed.
