Attorney Mark Hostetter is very knowledgeable and experienced in his field. His expertise gave me confidence to trust him. If I had any concern I raised it was immediately addressed. He immediately answers phone calls and emails or makes himself available to meet in person. He makes me feel that my case was the only one being handled by him despite having many cases. He is very patient, courteous and attentive and is an excellent communicator. He helped our case and the legal process go very smoothly. I highly recommend him and I am glad I worked with him!

Great startup lawyer
Mark Hostetter has advised my company on various commercial and employment legal matters. I know he does lots of trials in court, but we mainly wanted to avoid court problems. His work was thorough and his fees were very reasonable. We gained much improved contracts and other legal documents. I would highly recommend Mark for compliance peace of mind and litigation avoidance for businesses.

Satisfied client
He does not mind listening to the details of the case without interruptions. That made me feel very comfortable and at ease with giving him specific details about the case and he has a great sense of humor.

Great attorney!
I retained Mark to handle a civil case. The first thing that struck me when I met with him was how knowledgeable he was. Since that first meeting he has only managed to impress me even more. He is smart, driven, and genuine. Most importantly, anytime that I speak with him about my case, his mind is on my case, my details, and my situation; he has never made me feel like his mind was anywhere other than on me and my case. So I would most definitely recommend Mark Hostetter to anyone looking for legal counsel. He shoots straight from the hip and tells it like it is, and he is absolutely tenacious when it comes to protecting his client's interests. For those reasons, I believe that you could not find a better attorney to represent you. After all, that's why I hired him, and I am glad that I did.
