Fast, Efficient, and Personable
Jeff defies all the lawyer jokes we've heard over the years. He gave me laser-guided precise help with my securities offerings. I'd never done one before and he worked within our budget, which grew as we grew. And we grew because we kept hiring people like Jeff for our team!

Great Business Lawyer That Goes Above & Beyond
Used Jeff 4 times over the past 2 years- he was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. I will use Jeff again and highly recommend him to others.
Posted by Alan | September 10, 2013
Awesome attorney!
We've used Jeff for a number of reasons and have found his service, knowledge and trustworthiness exceptional. With our experience running publicly traded companies and having interests in a variety of other business ventures, we once believed we should deal with only the largest firms but found the experience with Jeff far more efficient than our typical experience. Great job, Jeff; we're more than happy to make this recommendation and be sure to use us as references anytime.

Great Entrepreneurial Lawyer - A partner, not just a service provider
Working with Jeff Marks has been a very positive experience. My biggest criticism of corporate/business lawyers is that they act strictly as service providers. Jeff has proven to be the opposite as he takes time to understand the vision and goals of myself and our management team. When appropriate, he extends advice, opportunities and connections which are of great value.

Great character, excellent expertise!
When I work on an M&A deal I want a smooth transaction handled competently where I am only pulled in when absolutely necessary. The last transaction Jeff and I worked on was a buy-side deal where each step in the process was executed flawlessly. As with all deals, there were some unforeseen wrinkles that threw everyone into a loop, but Jeff's management skills were put into motion and the process continued on schedule. I would recommend Jeff to anyone needing M&A assistance or general outside counsel work.

The lawyer you want on your side!
I have known Jeff for many years and find him to be very knowledgeable, responsive and efficient. He has the qualifications and knowledge of a big firm lawyer, but comes at a fraction of the cost. He is thorough and knows how to protect his clients well.

Chief Executive Officer
A lawyer with a business sense - It's a pleasure. I have worked with Mr. Marks on two separate startups and will work with him again of future such endeavors. He is quick, accurate, and understands the business objective of each project versus the myopic view some lawyers take toward business legal work.
