Diligent And Effective
Mr. Nelson has shown nothing but abject professionalism and ability. Our relations that Noe spans almost half a decade has yielded exceeemt results for our company. We couldn't endorse him more!

Professional & Thorough
Mark was very thorough, professional and honest. We hired Mark for my son to get a parenting plan in place for my grandson. Throughout the process Mark was always responsive to our questions and he aggressively worked with everyone involved to ensure healthy family relationships. The best interest of my grandson was always at the forefront. Ultimately my son got full custody. We are forever grateful. We went to Mark because of a recommendation from a friend and we are so glad we did.

Mark is Outstanding!
I have used Mark for a number of cases, and some during a really difficult time in my life. During this strenuous and emotionally taxing time, I knew I could depend on Mark to help guide me through each step with his confidence, knowledge, & integrity. It brought some much needed relief knowing I was well represented with an attorney I could trust. Mark is honest, up-front, hardworking, responsive, detailed, and really has proved to have a wide book of knowledge. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone seeking an attorney.

Efficient, knowledgeable professional
I came to Mark with a complicated situation related to my recent divorce. He was not the only lawyer I consulted, but he was the best. He had a solution drafted for me in a few short days, where others needed weeks to research. He really helped with a problem that I wasn’t sure could be solved. He clearly knows what he is doing. His hourly rate is not the lowest but it was a great value for what I received in return. I hope to not need his help in the future but if I do I will call him without hesitation.

Poor result
Mark's representation in a child support case resulted in a significant increase in my monthly child support payment; the ruling Mark got was not substantiated by fact or law; the Court Commissioner was allowed to make a 'results based ruling'. Mark was happy to take on the appeal, which was not successful either.

"I endorse this lawyer. I worked misdemeanor cases and appeal cases against Mark for approximately 4 years. In that time, Mark proved to be a crafty trial lawyer. He was always well prepared and knows the law better than most attorneys. While unforgiving in trial, Mark always balanced his ability to try a case with compassion and often worked with the opposing side so that both our clients got what they felt was fair. I highly recommend Mark and would not hesitate to hire him."
