Appears to be responsive, as my question was quickly answered
Unfortunately, we were unable to do business together; but I wouldnt hesitate to try him again on some other matter.

Director - Credit/Collections
Mark, was more than thorough in his handling of our case. He went way outside the box by reviewing other defendants that might be culpable and it worked.

Great Lawyer and Great Firm
Fantastic firm with very high quality lawyers. They don't over bill or over work a case or matter. They'll take the time needed to understand issues and make sure you understand the issues and what needs to be done, and they have a lot of experience in a number of areas of law including real estate, litigation, debtor creditor law, contracts. They've drafted various documents for me and supported a dispute (didn't get to litigation) all with an eye toward practical resolution and no churning of their bill. Can't say enough about them. Most of my experience is with Mark Poniatowski, but all of their lawyers are very good. They do a lot of work with individuals as well as small and some big companies. I know some of their other clients, and the feedback I received was great.

Very Professional
Mr. Poniatowski came highly recommended several years ago when I started my Company, by a friend. It has been one of the best recommendations we could have received. Being a small Company and having issues arise where legal expertise is needed, we trust that Mr. Poniatowski has the professional knowledge and experience to help us navigate through just about anything. I would highly recommend him if someone were to ask me.

Mark handled a durable power of attorney for me and his partner,Kim Leding, a probate case. They were both very professional and well-versed in these areas. They took the time to explain the processes , answer any questions and always responded in a timely manner.

Review of Poniatowski
I hired him to take over the CEO's position when closing down a business due to an eminent domain case. He was familiar with the company, and had taken care of a previous problem. He did what needed to be done, had excellent relations with employees, was careful to keep everything legal, only spent the necessary time required, and charges were fair. We couldn't have chosen a better person for the job.

Current Client review from Concord, CA
Mark has always taken the time to answer all my questions and gone over contracts I have asked him to review. Mark is very proactive to check up and make sure I am following up with pre-lim filings on my construction projects. I would definitively recommend Mark.

Great service and Knowledgeable Execution
They provided excellent service, we will use their services again when/if needed and highly recommend the law firm to others. Whether you’re launching a start-up, growing, expanding or resolving issues with your existing business, MDP is a perfect choice.

Best Credit Attorney Available!
I have worked with Mark for about 8 years. During this time he has always kept me informed of each case we requested his involvement; he has always recommended the right option in recovering our debt to the fullest. When appearing in court Mark is always well prepared and tenacious. The knowledge that Mark has regarding credit/bankruptcy/contract law is exceptional and I would highly recommend Mark for this type of assistance. He has definately been an asset for our company and I believe has been the best attorney for which I have dealt with during my 35 years in the credit industry.
