Hiring Mark was the best decision for my bankruptcy
I appreciate the support and guidance Mark provided throughout the bankruptcy process. It was a dark time for me and he helped me through it. I was also impressed with Mark's timely and well-thought-out responses to my many questions and concerns.

Mark and His Team are Phenomenal!!!
I had consulted Mark McClure several years ago when I was considering bankruptcy. Although I did not file, I was very impressed with Mark and his team, so I contacted him again a few months ago when filing bankruptcy seemed to be my only option for relief. Mark is friendly, personable, and dealt with my situation in an extremely professional and expeditious manner. Mark, Ian and Ethan are very helpful, thorough and best of all, I never waited for answers or feedback....they are totally on top of it all! I highly recommend Mark and his team!!

MARK AND THE TEAM ARE AMAZING!!!
Mark and his team are amazing! My wife and I did not know what to expect when we walked into his office. We were both nervous and a little scared of what the future was going to be. Mark quickly made us feel welcome and assured us everything would work out. He listened to our concerns and put together a plan that allowed us to live and make it through the bankruptcy. I hope to never need Mark’s services again lol but, if I ever need or know someone who needs the best bankruptcy lawyer in the entire world, I will definitely refer Mark. Thank you so much!

Chapter 13 4 Seniors
I fell in love with 0% Balance Transfers and ran up Credit Card debt in the mid-5 figures on a Social Security income. I contacted Mark McClure and he was very cordial explaining all the options available for me and my wife. He took the time to thoroughly explain all the various options to me a dim-witted senior citizen. Mark detailed all the steps we needed to accomplish so the Court would accept our request for Chapter 13 filing. Mark also explained his fees and accompanied us to Court to be sure we said the right thing and had all the necessary paperwork. Mark and his team were very supportive and answered all inquiries I made A.S.A.P.! It was an absolute pleasure to have Mark on our side.

Mark and his team were very understanding of our situation from the beginning and took the time to explore all options before committing to the Chapter 13 process. Mark kept us well informed through the court proceedings. Mark and his team were always quick to respond to any emails or phone calls we submitted. I would recommend Mark to anyone experiencing financial challenges.

Attorney Mark McClure
My husband and I have had bad experiences in the past with Lawyers because we owned our own business and had to use them quite a few times. Mark McClure was a breath of fresh air. Mark McClure was totally opposite of our last few attorneys, he really cared and took a bad situation and made it better. He really went the extra mile to help us out and has really changed our attitude towards Attorneys. Mark and his team came to the rescue for us in what I would say was the worst time of our lives and made something good out of it. He was very Professional in all aspects of our case. In Court you can tell he is well respected by everyone. When we had a question we would email him and he would email us right back, even after our case was over. God bless mark and his team. We are so glad to have used his services and would recommend highly to everyone.

Proven results, professional, personable.
Mark provided expert advise and opinions. He went to bat for us. He took the time to understand our situation and was therefore very effective in handling our case which was very complicated due to my sons mental health condition. I am glad Mark represented us during this difficult time.

He Makes It Happen.
I had gone through tough times and had to go through bankruptcy.First it was chapter 7 and then he advised to go for Chapter 13 so that he can help me in saving my house and also get rid of my 2nd mortgageToday i have my house and the 2nd mortgage is wiped off. I got replies to my every email and was on top of all the matters concerning my bankruptcy. I have the trust and he achieved what he promised and made it happen.

Welcoming, professional, detailed, & compassionate
My experience with Mr. McClure and his staff was excellent. He was very detailed about the bankruptcy procedure and if I had any questions he was very quick to respond to my e-mails or phone calls. Mr. McClure was very reassuring and was able to calm my nerves about the situation I was in. Although the experience of filing bankruptcy is not a pleasant one for anyone, I was glad to have such a compassionate and kind attorney to walk me through it.

Mark is the Best!
We have been using Mark McClure’s services (personal and business legal issues) for over a year. I was first impressed by Mark’s knowledge of many in-depth areas of law, his willingness to fully explain legal terms and legal aspects. He always responds quickly to our needs and requests. Mark’s follow up and reminders are impeccable. Mark has been practicing law for many years and demonstrates an easy to understand approach and takes the time to address all of our legal concerns. Mark McClure is easy to work with and has a very nice, professional staff. I would recommend Mark McClure to everyone looking for a very knowledgeable, down to earth and proficient attorney. Mark knows his stuff! Bottom line, Mark McClure works hard, does a great job and always has the client’s needs at the highest priority.
