Highly professional and sophisticated
Mark is well educated, knowledgeable, sophisticated, and highly professional. Mark reviewed my son's case, he made several advises that no other lawyer, we consulted before suggested. That brought confidence in our rightness in the case as well as piece of mind.

Top Notch Attorney Sharp as They Come
Can't say enough good things about Mr. Greany. If you need legal help I would highly recommend consulting with him first. He will shoot it to you straight and make your problems his problems when your situation seems most dire. What really impressed me was Mark's dedication and honesty regarding the circumstances surrounding a very serious 3rd-strike potential case. Rather than trying to just get the case and a retainer fee, he approached the issue with candor and actually recommended i hire a different lawyer that is more familiar with the courts in the jurisdiction where my case derived. Additionally, he provided me with valuable insight on what I could do to immediately minimize my chances of incarceration and an innovative plan to prepare for arraignment and the case ahead. If you need legal help I'd highly recommend starting with a call to Mark. He really cares about his clients, this is quite apparent from the very start, he will fight for you anyway he possibly

When you want it done now and done right!
Mark M. Greany impresses from the gate. His straight forward, no nonsense style instills confidence and trust. He's obviously very knowledgeable, but more importantly, he quickly embraces the essence of a case and understands the dispositive issues. He is clearly an advocate for those needing an aggressive, seasoned and fearless professional. I hired Mark to prosecute a complicated plaintiff's personal injury suit and he did so with fantastic results.

Mark Greany is a very solid choice.
Upon the urging of an attorney friend, we hired Mark Greany to represent our teenager; proved to be an exemplary choice. Mark explained the law and likely progression of the case succinctly and clearly, and provided unequivocal recommendations. He answered our many questions fully, with patience and compassion. When court date came, he was there early to dialogue with the police and provide us with the necessary guidance and reassurance. His presentation in court was so solid: calm, articulate, focused, professional. All charges dismissed. Our family feels fortunate to have met Mark Greany. We are very appreciative of his expertise and would recommend him very highly and without reservation.

Excellent services
Mr. Greany was able to get my case dismissed so that I have no criminal record. He was also very helpful throughout the process and kept me informed about how the case was progressing, all the way up to the dismissal!

Thank you!
While visiting San Diego from the East Coast, an unfortunate incident occurred involving my child. Never having dealt with any type of criminal process before, we were somewhat hysterical and had no idea what to do or where to turn. I made a frantic call to Mark Greany, who returned my call early the next day. He explained the process, gave us advice as to how to proceed, and left us feeling that we had an advocate, all as an initial consultation without charge. We are hopeful that the incident is behind us, and that further legal representation won't be necessary. However, if that doesn't turn out to be the case, my child will definitely be calling Mark. Thank you so much for putting this mom at ease during an especially difficult time - it is much appreciated!

Great Attorney!
Mark Greany is extremely talented and intelligent, and he is also very approachable and patient. He took the time to decide with me what the best course of action would be – making me feel comfortable and confident about the case. He was always well-prepared and willing to answer all of my questions about the charges. Mark’s experience and intuition made him able to anticipate what was coming my way, which was very helpful. I am extremely grateful for all his hard work and especially for his kind and thoughtful attitude. I would definitely recommend Mark Greany to anyone looking for a top-notch attorney.
