Trustworthy Knowledgable Real Estate Attorney
We hired David to represent us for a real estate matter in which we purchased a house however later found out non-disclosed issues with the house. The case went on for 2 years and eventually reached a global settlement. David is our attorney and also the most trustworthy partner along the process. We got valuable advices from David regarding what we should do and shouldn't do, and we trust David for all his professional advices. David is very considerate to try hard to keep the cost low for us, which we really appreciate. We feel lucky to have hired David as our attorney and we recommend David to all our friends.

Excellent real estate expert
We consulted with David for a problem we had with our contractor when he went on an illegal strike. David explained on our options to us, and did not even charge us since our contractor came back to work using the strategy David identified for us!

Excellent and trustworthy real-estate lawyer
I hired David Marks to represent me in a case brought against me by a property developer who owned an empty lot next door to me and who summarily sued me for a matter that should have been dealt with via a gentleman's agreement, but which ended up costing me thousands. Regardless, Mr Marks helped resolve the case, in the process dealing with the other side's aggressive and irrational attorney. Mr Marks knew that as the "little guy" I needed to keep costs low, and was very reasonable and considerate in this regard. I would have no hesitation in contacting him again should the need arise - which I hope it never does, but one never knows.

The Best Attorney On Your Side
David Marks is one of the most compassionate and highly versed attorneys I've ever met. He's been my attorney for years, and he has never once let me down. He is aggressive, without being overbearing, and, most of all...he wins. He has a great sense of "right and wrong" and if he feels your case is worthy of court, he will provide you with the best legal defense you could ever ask for. I cannot say enough good things about this man, his knowledge base (he's a top flight litigator and an expert in real estate law), or his practice as an attorney.
