Mr. Gershenson was referred to me by esteemed but mostly retired counsel David Franklin, who described him as "a real technician". He has a cool demeanor and his blows are strategic and professional. My case had been derailed due to the actions or inaction of my two prior attorneys, and I had lost faith in the process. Mr. Gershenson restored my confidence as he rose to the challenge of initially being hired on a limited-scope basis. He wrote a sharp brief and won the day with one of the largest fee awards in Indio. He then subbed in for all purposes. He was very supportive while opposing counsel, tried to ride roughshod over me and railroad me with appalling legal misstatements. Mr. Gershenson is a no-nonsense, matter-of-fact and very effective adversary. He has what it takes to carry my highly contentious and complex case to the limit. I cannot say that about my prior attorneys.

It has always been important to acknowledge exemplary performance in others, never more so than today in a society in which such recognition is misunderstood and often absent.
As such, Mark provides compassionate guidance and counsel, replete with an adherence to professional standards that is uncommon.
Mark’s practice is characterized by compassion, honesty, diligence, and prudence.

For more than 30 years, Mark Gershenson has been providing effective, compassionate and cost effective representations to husbands and wives involved in a family law dispute. Mark knows the law and his way around the courts but, more importantly, recognizes that personal and financial issues that must be kept in mind in formulating a legal, personal and business strategy best calculated to get his client to the result that he or she is seeking. I frequently make referrals of my clients to Mark, and cannot recommend him more enthusiastically.
