Passionate, Smart, and Results Oriented
Mark Wilson is an honest, genuine, direct, efficient and passionate attorney. If he takes your case, you WILL have a positive outcome. His reputation alone is enough to bring the other side to the negotiating table, and that is what happened to us. I had a dispute with an attorney which I had tried to resolve directly with the attorney myself. The other attorney did not respond to my emails. I tried to take the other attorney to the Orange County Bar Association Mandatory Fee Arbitration. That was a joke! It was the proverbial Fox guarding the henhouse. Finally, I was lucky to find Mark Wilson, and I was lucky that he accepted my case. As soon as he filed a lawsuit against the other attorney, the other side came to the negotiating table and settled the case immediately. If it was not for Mark Wilson’s reputation, I know the other side would have dragged us through a long and lengthy process. I also would like to emphasize that Mr. Wilson is extremely passionate about his work, and that is what impressed me most about him. He is passionate about righting a wrong that has happened to a consumer as a result of his profession. He is doing the job that the California State Bar and the Orange County Bar Association should be doing, however, those entities do not have the power or motivation to discipline their members. Mr. Wilson is the answer to the problem of the dishonest and negligent attorney. He is very much results oriented. If he takes your case, do not think twice – you will be lucky to have him on your team.

Breach of Contract Litigation
I highly recommend attorney Mark Wilson. He and his firm successfully represented me in a complex breach of contract lawsuit. In doing so, Mr. Wilson was ultra-professional, empathetic, analytical and detail-oriented every step of the way. Throughout the nearly two-year process of our initial consultation all the way through a two-week jury trial, Mr. Wilson kept me constantly informed of my options and available strategies. If you're looking for the pinnacle of legal knowledge, ethics and integrity, along with superior trial preparation and courtroom presentation skills, Mr. Wilson and his firm should be at the top of your consideration list.

Superb Attorney
Mr. Wilson is a brilliant attorney who works very hard for his clients. He is informed, honest and a very compassionate individual. From my very first interview with Mr. Wilson I knew he was an Attorney who would indeed deliver. Mr. Wilson always made sure I understood every aspect of my case, from the possible outcomes to the overall process. From the very beginning Mr. Wilson kept me informed of options to take as well as the possible consequences thereof. His knowledge reaches far and is very diverse to say the least; there was never a turn that he did not anticipate. Mr. Wilson always answered all my questions knowledgeably and he always answered phone calls and emails immediately. Mr. Wilson brought my lawsuit to a very satisfying end and he was a blessing to my case.

Klein & Wilson is an asset to our company.
We came to Mark through a recommendation by a highly respected retired judge. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of the case. Mark was extremely professional from the initial meeting all the way through the conclusions of the case. His communication skills are exceptional and he spent the time to understand the case fully and make solid recommendations. Mark’s tenacity in seeking a resolution to the case was invaluable. We highly recommend him and consider Klein & Wilson an asset to our company.

Home Seller Failure to Disclose Multiple Defects
My wife and I purchased a 9 year old house in South Orange County from a seller that failed to disclosed multiple defects that were significant and would be very expensive to repair. Within hours after moving into the house, a major undisclosed defect became very apparent to us. The fun and excitement of moving into the house was quickly replaced by the realization that the sellers had taken advantage of us. The following Monday we began the process of identifying a law firm that could effectively represent the legal actions we needed to take. We searched the Web, made some calls, and were eventually referred to a law firm in Orange County that came highly recommended. One of the law firms Principals and the Lawyer that would handled our case did an excellent job selling their services and convincing us that their firm had the expertise, experience, and ability to get our case resolved favorably within 12 to 18 months. The work the initial law firm did during the 38 months they handled our case was costly and substandard to say the least. They were very non-communicative, and even on two separate occasions had failed to appear on our behalf during mandatory court hearings. Out of a sense of desperation I began to look for another law firm that could take the case over and bring it to a favorable conclusion. Fortunately we came across Mark Wilson at the Klein and Wilson law firm. During the initial conversation and subsequent face-to-face meeting with Mark I knew that I was dealing with a caring and intelligent professional. Mark clearly explained to me the actions he would take in order to end the protracted legal battled. Within approximately 3 months Mark was able to negotiate an acceptable settlement with the sellers and negotiate a partial reimbursement of legal fees from the law firm that had initially represented us. Mark and his colleagues do what they say they will do. They provide the experience, expertise, and attention to detail that is needed in any legal matter. Over the years I have worked with many law firms for personal and business needs and never before have I worked with such a team of caring and effective professionals. Hopefully I will never need legal representation again and if I do, I will certainly contact Klein and Wilson as my go to legal team.

Outstanding Litigator
Our company had been locked up in costly litigation that seemed to be going nowhere. We brought in Mark Wilson, and he quickly understood the root issues and developed an effective approach to break the deadlock. We settled a couple weeks later. Mark is very effective in communicating with his clients and responds to any request the same day.

Defending the Corporate LLC Veil
I picked Mark to represent me in a filed lawsuit aimed at piercing the LLC Corporate Veil of a company that I was in the process of dissolving. He adopted a strategy of organizing and proactively presenting all the data that the opposition would seek during future discovery, long before the trial date. As a result I was dismissed at a fraction of the cost and hassle of going to trial. Though there was ample data, it was Mark’s ability to create and deliver a compelling presentation that was responsible for the result.

Mark Wilson is a rare, ethical and superbly skilled lawyer
My company was referred to Mark Wilson by another competent litigation firm for a case that was going to be very complex, contentious and expensive. Rather than ending up in lengthy and very costly litigation, Mark drew up a strategy that resulted in the matter being resolved in less than a few months at a mere fraction of the cost I anticipated. In my multi decade business career, unquestionably, Mark Wilson is the most skilled attorney any of my companies has engaged.

Partnership Dispute and Subsequent Buyout
Mark Wilson helped me navigate through a major partnership dispute that turned into a buyout. Mark thoroughly explained my situation to me with recommendations of how to proceed. Mark is very ethical with emphasis on communication and proper legal protocols. Mark is a very methodical attorney who is not too quick to make decisions without having all of the facts. Mark guided me through a very stressful situation while giving me the confidence that I needed to make our "deal" happen. Mark is very responsive no matter how big or small the issue may be. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone that needs legal representation. I can't say enough good things about Mark other than, hire him! You won't regret it. Also, I found Mark on AVVO when 3 other attorneys never called me back. Mark got back to me within 30 minutes. Very impressed!

Mark is an experienced and well regarded attorney. When I had a question about a conflict of interest waiver, he quickly answered it over the phone. It put me at ease knowing I had the opinion of one of the best attorneys out there. I strongly recommend Mark and his firm.

Great Lawyer for a Lawyer
I am an attorney who had a problem related to my practice. I contacted Mark Wilson for a consultation. Mark not only responded to me quickly, despite his busy schedule, but also quickly formulated a plan to solve my problem. His advice was both practical and effective. Mark made my problem disappear and saved me from what would have been a long and stressful fight.

Outstanding counsel
Mark is an excellent lawyer. He truly excels at his craft. I wish I would have met Mark early on in my litigation path. I had 2 other lawyers prior to him, and Mark is by far the best. He has a no-nonsense approach and breaks down the case into simple to understand terms. His thought process is clear, and his presentation is very organized. He kept me updated throughout the entire process and was always available. I hope I don't ever need to litigate again, but I will definitely call upon Mark if the need arises!

A True Super Lawyer
I have known Mark for 16 years and he has helped our company through out those years with various litigation issues including a 4 week trial that literally saved our company in a Non-Compete case. Mark is a perfectionist and always places the client first by providing a common sense approach to each situation. He loves what he does and does it remarkably well. I strongly recommend him only if you want to hire the best.

Outstanding Trial Counsel
Hard working, sharp, tenacious, and honest, Mark sits at the top of a small group of Southern California attorneys who are considered the "go-to" counsel for complex and difficult cases. I have over 25 years of litigation experience and had the honor of providing expert testimony for Mark in a complex attorney malpractice case in December of 2015. Mark's preparation and attention to detail are superb. He is easy to work with and is someone I strongly endorse.

Committed to his clients
I recently had the opportunity to get to know Mr. Wilson and his staff during the time I was appointed my niece’s guardian Ad litem in a litigation case. Mr. Wilson and his firm are extremely professional, honest and most of all dedicated to their clients. I especially was pleased by Mr. Wilson’s ability to simplify the content and complexity that some of these legal documents can have and explain it in simple terms making sure I had a clear understanding of everything that was taking place. He ensured we had constant communication to keep me informed at all times. He definitely gets a five star rating all around from me.

A Superbly Competent Litigator Who Truly Cares About His Client's Interests
We retained Mark Wilson after the initial attorney that was retained by the City ended up having a conflict and had to recuse himself from the case. Once Mark took over, he quickly and astutely assessed our case, identified our strengths and weaknesses and gave an honest assessment of what he felt our chances would be if our case went to trial. Mark is very logical and is a shrewd tactician. He communicates well providing regular status updates on the case and always provides an objective appraisal no matter how brutal the news may be. Mark truly cares about his client’s interests and is sensitive about not creating work just to run up billable hours. I have worked with many attorneys in my career and rarely have I come across an attorney like Mark Wilson who is not only passionate at what he does, but takes a real interest in your case and aggressively works with you to reach a successful outcome. Despite some significant challenges and sheer complexity of our case, Mark was successful in negotiating a successful settlement to our case without having to go to trial. I would highly recommend Mark Wilson to anyone who has a contractual dispute or legal malpractice case. He is a superbly competent attorney who puts his client’s interests first and works extremely hard to achieve your desired results without running up costs unnecessarily.

Excellent Business Litigator
Knowledgeable, incisive, responsive. Tireless advocates and accomplished trial attorneys. Both Mark Wilson and his partner Gerry Klein, of Klein & Wilson, are models of how litigators should conduct themselves in and out of court, and remain an important resource for my own business clients when the need arises for unqualified litigation assistance on complex commercial matters.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have had the good fortune to work together with Mark on several cases. I was recently retained by Mark as an expert witness in a very complex legal malpractice case. While I knew that Mark has a brilliant legal mind, I was so impressed with his passion, meticulous preparation, attention to detail and how he was able to simplify complicated, complex facts and legal principles into a coherent trial plan. Mark labored diligently, and it became obvious to me that no fact was too obscure to attract his full attention. Mark also is very adept at utilizing courtroom technology to communicate his clients’ story in a crystal clear, easy to understand and compelling way. His assiduousness resulted in his mastery of the court room, and it was apparent that he earned respect, even admiration of his peers, judges and the jury members. In short, I highly endorse Mark as a great trial lawyer based upon his recognized success, excellence, expertise, service, and innovation."
