Professional, Passionate and very hard working professional
Our California based company was sued in Washington State for trademark issues. Mark have guided our company to make the right legal choice, explained to us our legal options, and help us effectively negotiated a settlement to the best of our company's interest. As many knows, legal issues and lawsuit are a lengthy and stressful process. During the whole process, Mark have truly shown us his ability to negotiate, his professional expertise in the matters. His involvement in the case have made us truly feels like we have someone professional on our side that can help us solve problems, and get the job done. As a conclusion, Mark is very professional, passionate, very hard working professional, and he knows how to handle the legal situation in a way so that you do not have to be the stressful one. I would continue to seek Mark's service in the future if I ever needed any, and would most definitely recommend Mark to anyone with IP, copyright and Trademark needs.

quick response, well drafted letter, problem resolved :)
Mark was very prompt to reply to my initial inquiry. He has tremendous experience regarding our situation and was quick to offer advice and go over the next steps so that we knew exactly what might happen in the near future. Luckily our "situation' did not escalate, perhaps it was due to his well crafted letter, but regardless we would come back to Mark and his firm for any future trade usage infringement work.

Mark Walter won our case! Highly recommend him.
Mark saved our indoor children's playground business. I was faced with frivolous patent, copy right and infringement lawsuit by our competitor. We were so stressed out when we were served patent lawsuit by our competitor at our grand opening celebration. The competitor tried to shut our small business down but Mark Walter's experience, education and knowledge on patent law, he won our case. He is the lawyer to get the job done. Mark is a champion and a fighter. I highly recommend Mark Walter! If someone tries to sue you, do not panic and contact Mr. Walter.

Outstanding Lawyer
Mark is a superb lawyer of the highest integrity. He is very knowledgeable, well organized, and thorough. He is very pleasant to work with, and his personal attention to my situation made a very difficult experience much easier to deal with. He was completely dedicated to my case and always kept me informed of every step – and in a timely manner. In all instances, he was the most responsive, informed, and helpful lawyer I have ever worked with in any situation. I highly recommend Mark to anyone who is looking for a professional lawyer who keeps the client’s best interest in mind, and who is focused on producing favorable outcomes in the most efficient manner possible.

Smart and Creative
Early in his career, Mark counseled me through a period where I was bullied by a large, cash heavy competitor. He used his education, guile and creativity to help me survive and, ultimately, settle, very satisfactorily, with that company. One of my peers also used Mark to settle a similar situation. Mark is a remarkable young attorney, destined for great things.
