Did you hear the one about the lawyer that you can actually like? I didn't think so. Well, probably because you have not heard of Mark Potter and his incredible team. Lots of lawyers claim to be fighting for you, but most all of them are just fighting to get some extra padding in their wallet. Mark, being an ADA lawyer is out to fight the good fight with his clients in making an ignorant and inaccessible world more aware and accessible. Sure, the Americans With Disabilities Act was written with the intention of making America accessible for all, but the follow through and observance of the stipulations have been slow, if not completely lacking. Yes, the Department of Justice has a wing set up to handle complaints about entities, but they are so overburdened and understaffed they fail miserably. I have tried going the “civil” and more conservative route of utilizing the Departments complaint process, but to no avail. I had even been told by a representative that I may want to contact a lawyer, because the way the law was set up, real change will only happen with legal action. This is where Mark and his team come in because they know the law backwards and forwards and keep up with all the new changes and precedent setting cases so that your case case receives the most thorough research to obtain the best result, for you and everyone else who needs to access the entity. Mark and his office are extremely responsive, and I almost always receive an immediate if not instant response to any of my inquiries. Because of his expert knowledge, every detail is pored over so your case gets the maximum and most thorough resolution. Whenever I encounter a barrier, Mark and his firm are the first people I think of who can lift the barrier.

The Law Offices of Potter/Handy is hands down the best employment lawyer in San Diego. My case was complicated and required a ton of research, preparation and back and forth communication with a huge law firm that did everything possible to delay the case and make both of our lives difficult. In the end Mark Potter was totally prepared, aggressive when I needed him to be and was always on top of things in litigating my claim. Making the decision to pursue legal action against a previous employer is scary and confusing and at times you might lose faith in the system. Mark explained everything, always took my calls and answered all of my emails. For sure I made the right decision hiring Mark!

Mr. Potter took on very difficult ADA related case on my behalf. He and his staff thoroughly reviewed the information I supplied. Upon review, Mr. Potter took the case and won. Corrections were made, and I accepted an offer in consideration. I think the business involved, will be more inclined to resolve issues when first contacted by an individual. Mr. Potter's firm was a last resort for me.

I thought the Potter Handy lawfirm were very helpful and pleasant to work with.
I believe they went above being helpful, when Mark Potter and another gentleman came to my place and picked me up.
They were and still, understanding as I am going through difficult times.

Mark has helped me over the years with several ADA accessibility cases - his knowledge is extensive and in one mediation the mediator asked the other party's lawyers "if they know who they're dealing with because he's the best ADA lawyer in the country......" We won that case! If you have an ADA case, there is no better person than Mark to handle it. Highly recommend.

Mark Potter was successful in my ADA case, my kids school was not compliant in their football stadium seating area making it impossible to view activities performed while sitting in a wheelchair from the ground level. Mark was the first attorney I have ever worked with. He was compassionate, detail oriented and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I really appreciated his help!

I've worked with Mark Potter for a few years and am pleased to highly recommend him and his law firm.
He has a wealth of ADA legal knowledge and experience (as do his attorneys and staff). I have a sense of comfort when being represented by Mark Potter and his company, because I know I'm in good hands.

I have had the pleasure hiring Mark Potter for ADA Guidelines & Employee Rights violations. Mark and his staff were very caring, polite and professional. I couldn't imagine using any other law firm. They take the stress away so you don't have to deal with it. I'm very thankful for everything they have done.

Mark Potter and Potter Handy are the best. They saved me from a predatory debt collector who was bullying me around. He was able to drastically reduce my debts, and arrange a very affordable payment plan on a debt that was overwhelming me. The payment plan was interest free and over 40% reduction in what I payed... Simply put, the fee I paid to Mr. Potter was nothing compared to what he saved me. I highly recommend Mark Potter for anyone who needs help in this area. Don't forget: Debt Collectors operate on the grey area of the law. Mark set them straight with a single letter, stopped wage garnishment, reduced debt, and threatened a lawsuit if they continued to harass me illegally...

I am a wheelchair user, I sent Complaints to him regarding the rights for disable people like me, and I can say that he is doing the right job for people with disabilities, The complaints I've been sent to him has been fixed the way they should be, as a person is also excellent because he treat people with disabilities with respect.
