True Lifesaver...
Suffice it to say, I pray I never need the legal services of Mr. Days ever again. But having needed an attorney, at one of the most difficult times in my life, I can be honest, God could not have sent me (or allowed me find) anyone better. Having had substantially insufficient representation, from a different attorney, at the beginning of my case and for over a year into it, I knew I needed a change. My prior attorney simply wanted me to plead guilty, as there was “No way…” I was ever going to get a fair trial, a better deal, an acquittal, etc…etc. That prior attorney would slam his fists into the table at our meetings and, literally, yell at me that he was doing everything he could, when I knew full well that he wasn’t. That prior attorney would not answer written correspondence, phone calls to his office or even give answer to my concerns during our personal meetings. All of that changed the day I met Mr. Days. Immediately upon my introduction to Mr. Days, he wanted to know what I wanted and how I wanted to proceed. He listened to me and my concerns. Not only concerns regarding my case, but regarding my future, my family and my reputation. Mr. Days was frank with me. He was forthright and, not to put too fine a point on it, honest with me when I was misguided in the law or just simply wrong about something. He was sincere, honest, and genuinely I could tell, wanted the best for me. Mr. Days worked diligently to provide me with any and all information. He provided me with case information I was not even able to obtain from my previous attorney. Mr. Days puts the work in and provides you the comfort in knowing your case is at the top of his mind. Your case means something to him, and you will never have to be reminded of that because it is clearly evident. I’ve called him “Mr. Days” a lot in this letter, but what I truly want to say is that without Marc, I don’t know where I’d be. The possibilities are endless. I doubt that I would be here today. In fact, I would be in custody based on the work of that previous attorney. I can honestly and sincerely say that Marc is why I’m here…with my family, with my friends, with my employer and continuing to be a productive member of society. Thank you Marc…for saving my life.

A lawyer who truly cares
Marc Days provides excellent representation. His breadth and depth of experience and legal knowledge is vast. He is meticulous in his attention to detail and looks at every issue from many angles to come up with the best strategy to defend his clients. He’s resourceful, intelligent, and confident without bluster. If he doesn’t know the answer, he knows where to find the answer. He considers the attorney-client relationship to be a collaboration, which means that his clients are always kept informed not only of their rights but the choices available to them each step of the way as their case proceeds. Beyond the legal realm, he cares deeply about the well-being of his clients. He understands the value of redemption and reconciliation in people’s lives and seeks results that are not only just but that will lead to changing lives for the better whenever possible. I simply can’t recommend him highly enough.

A lawyer who really Cares
whom it may concern, I write this letter because I found myself in a place where I did not know anything. I was recommended to Mark Days attorney at law, I'm glad I was because Mark was able to keep my son out of prison. With his diligence and expertise my son was able to come home to me. Mark is compassionate and listens which is very important when you need a lawyer. He knows his way around a courtroom . He will research every avenue to find the best solution for his client. Again I thank you with all my heart and soul for getting my son home and keeping him out of prison thank you Mark.

Not like the others!
Mr.Days helped save my life. He got my whole case dismissed, and I cannot recommend him enough for anyone that is tired of overpriced lawyers that hardly do much to help. He even gave back the funds from the retainer! My family has needed lawyers on multiple occasions even spending $40,000 to no avail. It’s safe to say I was skeptical about Mr.Days, but after I stood side by side with him in the courtroom and heard him speak on my behalf I knew he would do everything he could for my case. He clearly explained everything and always seemed to know the right course of action. As long as you don’t lie to him he’s not going to sugar-coat anything with you; a true professional! I thought I would lose everything but with his help I have another chance at life. All thanks to Mr. Marc Days!

Highly recommended!
Marc Days is one of the best! His perseverance and dedication gave me the best possible outcome for my criminal case. Since the start, he explained everything in detail, thoroughly answered all my questions and clarified any doubts. Every part of the case went exactly as he mentioned. Marc is very knowledgeable and knows how to maneuver the court system. He moved very quickly with my case. Regardless of the complexity of the case, in a month, he dismissed 5 out of the 6 charges I was facing! He successfully reduced my felony to a misdemeanor with time served and no probation. Moreover, he reduced my bail from 1 million to $30,000! I would highly recommend Marc! Aside from being a great human being, he is the dedicated attorney you need to help you keep your freedom. P.S. Even after years, we still have contact. He checks-in, asks about family and gives advice on life in general."

Saved me from ruin
Marc Days guided me through a dark time. I was arrested for DUI with flimsy evidence by aggressive law enforcement officers on federal land and I thought my life would be ruined, my job lost. Marc was able to help me keep my commercial driver's license from being suspended immediately by the DMV and got all federal DUI charges dropped by playing hardball with the federal prosecutors, who definitely would have made me cave in and plead guilty to charges that were false simply because I would not have known what my options were, or the legal process. When I felt helpless, Marc stepped up and fought hard for me and won a just and satisfying outcome because of his expertise in federal cases and how to handle tough talking prosecutors. Marc had my back any time I started to worry or feel down about my situation. He is a true pro and a big hitter in your corner.

Incredible
Marc days did an incredible job! Walking into a world of horrible trouble when my husband was arrested I didn’t know what to do. We were referred to many different lawyers but Mr. Days stood out the most. Speaking with Days felt comfortable and by his confidence I knew that he knew what he was doing from the gate. He never made me feel like I had to question his decisions nor did he pretend to make anything feel like it was something other then what it was when it came to my husband case. From day one of walking in his office I knew we would be okay. Days did all he could do and did it with a passion we knew that he cared and did his best no questions asked. Humble, strong, confident and a God fearing man who goes over n beyond for his clients. My family and I greatly appreciate all that he did.

Amazing! 10 out of 10!
I don't have much experience with lawyers but I got to say, Marc Days has set the bar very high for any future lawyers. Marc is a very caring individual who does not care just about the case. He also care about the wellbeing of his client. He helped me with my case and was able to get me the best result. His professionalism and communication skills are excellent. Through out the whole process he was very reassuring and answered all of my questions very clearly. With Marc, you get the best of both worlds. An amazing knowledgeable, resourceful lawyer and a man with a heart of gold. I highly recommend him. Save yourself some time and call him now! - Jose

Aggressive and Experienced Attorney
Marc is an excellent Attorney. He was thorough and diligent with my case, communicated well throughout, and fought to achieve my desired result. Marc knows his stuff. A simple consultation with Marc will tell you all you need to know. His belief system and strong family values are evident in his demeanor and he's always a pleasure to speak with. He covered every aspect of my case from top to bottom. The entire process went exactly as he said it would and he established an unbeatable defense. His aggressive and strategic style of representation was highly successful for us. I only appeared in Court once during the entire process. Three things occurred which I believe define Marc as an Attorney: 1) First and foremost, he obtained the result I wanted (Other Attorneys told me it wasn't possible and to accept a plea deal); 2) Marc presented our arguments extremely well in Court, so well in fact that others in the courtroom with their own attorney approached me and asked for his information; 3) When all was said and done, the Court sent me follow-up paperwork with a discrepancy. Within 5 minutes of bringing it to his office Marc personally contacted the court clerk and demanded they correct it immediately. Within 5 minutes Marc handed me corrected paperwork and I was on my way. The swift turnaround was amazing to witness. He's one of the best, if not the best, Attorneys I've dealt with. Most of the time I was in awe of his intellectual prowess and commanding persona. I would highly recommend Marc to anybody needing good legal representation. Bonus: He still checks in with me from time-to-time just to chat.

Best Lawyer in Fresno, CA
Marc Days is hands down the best lawyer here in the Fresno Area. He helped me out tremendously to fight a Federal Case I was indicted in. He knows the IN’s and OUT’s of the Federal System. When we were going over my case Marc said a number of times he was going to get me the best possible deal in my situation, in which he did. I applaud Marc for having the patience with me in explaining how the Federal System Works and what I was looking at as far as time in prison would be if I took it to trial. If it wasn’t for him I wouldn’t be here right now, so I thank you Marc Days from the bottom of my heart.

Best criminal lawyer in the valley by far
Marc fought for me and my family from start to finish, and even checked on me after from time to time to make sure I was good and ask if I needed anything. He earned my trust and worked for me tirelessly.

Marc Days is a damn good lawyer!
Marc Days represented me in my 2009 homicide trial. Marc Days is an excellent attorney, he was amazing durning the trial and he only had one month to prepare. His opening statement was a thing of beauty and he had all of the jurors on their toes. I beat the first degree murder and the second degree murder as it is a lesser included charge. I was found guilty of manslaughter and given a 8 year sentence and the prosecution offered 14 years. Marc Days is a damn good lawyer.

Plea Deals Only Type--Don't Hire!!!
If you are innocent, don't go to this person. I lingered in jail while snitches, guards and Days told me not to talk. I wanted to go to trial, and Days said he would. "I don't want ANYONE who's innocent to take a plea..." However, though the case was flawed--and verified same by my state attorney--Days got angry when I changed my mind about the plea deal. Government lowered my "restitution" to make me take plea. Days got mad because he had a "no prison time" deal in place. I trusted nobody, and couldn't get anything--including ALL EVIDENCE against me--from Days. I asked for business card constantly; he wouldn'/couldn't find one. Calling was unacceptable; he'd tell his office to say he wasn't in.
