Superior representation
We were very pleased with how quickly Mark resolved our case. Completely stress free and very professional. We are having their firm perform additional legal services for us because of how easy they made it.

Highly Recommend
Mark took on my case knowing very little about my industry. He took the time to really understand what was happening and how things actually work. He helped me to understand the legal process and what our next steps needed to be. Our case was dismissed. The person suing me had no grounds to stand on. Thank you Mark for helping me through a very difficult time.

Exceeded my Expectations
I feel that Mark really did an amazing job with my case. Right away when he had a consultation with me I felt at ease and he really made me feel that everything was going to work out. He and his paralegal prepared a very powerfully-worded demand letter to the insurance company and it worked! We did not have to go through a trial and for that I was very grateful. We were able to settle within about 5-6 months if I remember correctly. Mark or his paralegal were always a phone call or email away and they always kept in touch with me even after I moved 4 hours away. They continued working on my case so I didn't have to find another lawyer. Mark was very good at making sure that I had all of the information I needed before making decisions in regards to my case. I would highly recommend Mark. I really feel that I got the best representation possible for my case.

Personal injury
We hired Mark soon after being in a horrible car wreck. Too many injuries, huge medical bills. Mark and his legal team were amazing to work with!

Personal Injury and Employment Law
If I get in a car accident, this is the attorney I will go to. He has a lot of experience in this area and works hard for the client to try to get them the best result. No offense, I hope I won't need an attorney for any employment issues.
