Hands Down Best Experience
I definitely appreciate all the work Mr. Paul Markley did on my behalf. He made the process smooth and easy for me. From the very first time I sat down with him, he was clear and concise every step of the way. Despite being my first time working with a lawyer, he made me feel comfortable and confident in his abilities. Thanks again Paul!

We highly recommend, Paul Markley. He handled our case extremely well. Very professional and dealt with attorneys and insurance companies on the opposing side with polish and competence. Wish we had used him another time when our car was hit by a driver running a red light. 5 Stars

Attorney Review
Paul has handled some unfortunate vehicle accidents that I have been involved in and in each case has gone the extra mile to insure that my needs were accommodated including medical assistance and vehicle recovery. He and his staff were always on top of my case and communicated all essential details of the case to me in order to keep me apprised of status. Paul is a diligent attorney who provided me the representation that I needed in order to recover my sustained losses and would highly recommend him to anyone in similar circumstances.

Great Attorney
Paul handled my case 1 year ago and he did an outstanding job! He was there for me every step of the way and showed complete professionalism. I would recommend Paul with confidence! The settlement was way over the amount that i had even anticipated!

Excellent and trustworthy attorney
Excellent attorney. Our auto insurance company was not keeping us informed from a multi-car accident. Once we retained Paul Markley as our attorney, everything improved substantially. All information came to us in a timely manner. We highly recommend this very qualified attorney for all personal/ medical injury and auto accidents..

Mr Markley has really been great for myself and friends, Very personable and hard working, goes out of his way to help you, before I used him I had referred him to a friend. He really went out of his way to help him. MY friend could't drive and Paul would drive to his home to take information and paperwork, ect. He was able to bring case to a satisfactory and quick conclusion. Paul did the same for me, He was able to file a case for me within days after an insurance company offered a ridiculous settlement after promises and promises. He really knows his stuff, real easy to talk with and gave excellent advice, went both to court and arbitration, and with him leading the way I felt confident and relaxed throughout the whole process, and I was very happy with the results. I Highly recommend Paul Markley!
