Mark has represented me on several issues and has always been on the winning end. He has always kept me fully informed of what was happening and never made promises he could not keep. He always makes sure I am prepared and has never taken the easy way out. I have used many other attorneys over the year and Mark Potter is one of two that I would recommend to a family member or friend.

Mark remains committed to his true mission; he continues to protect the rights of individuals that often times do not have a voice. He understands the underlying issues that are at stake for people living with disabilities. There are many complexities associated with upholding the legal rights of people with disabilities yet Mark is always willing to go the extra mile for his clients. He has provided me with great service and friendship during difficult moments.
Puja Sachdev, Divorce and separation Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Mark is an all-around good guy! He is also well-known in the San Diego community and has developed a niche in employment law and personal injury matters as it pertains to people with disabilities. I give him my endorsement, without any hesitation.
Barry Walker, Employment and labor Attorney
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
Mark Potter and his firm provide unmatched legal services to their clients. Mr. Potter and his attorneys stand head and shoulders above other disability rights firms, taking the fight not only to opposing counsel, but to judges unwilling to enforce important ADA provisions.
