From our initial meeting Mark made our process as easy and painless as possible. We were up against a very big obstacle and we could not imagine using anybody else. Mark is an amazing attorney and incredible at what he does. Not a day goes by that we don't give thanks for what he did for our family. Mark was the best legal decision we have ever made.

I have used Mark Iverson for all five of my adoptions. I highly recommend him and his staff. They are all very knowledgeable in the adoption process. He was quick in answering any questions I had. He was able to set realistic expectations regarding the time frame of the adoption process and he continues to answer questions that I have had post adoption.

I placed a child for adoption through Mark Iverson. He was very helpful and compassionate in assisting me to find a loving family that I liked and could trust to raise my child. He was accomodating in every way and always made time to answer every question and address every concern. I chose to keep in contact with the family who adopted my baby and recieve letters and pictures from time to time and occaisionally get to visit with them. I am still very pleased and confidant with my decision and with the wonderful family that adopted my son.

We have used Mark Iverson's legal services for adoption finalizations since 2004. We have adopted 10 children and find Mark to be professional and informative throughout the adoption finalization process. Mark is sensitive to birth parent as well as adoptive parent issues. Mr. Iverson is well known & recommended throughout the foster care/adoptive parenting system here in Spokane because he is very helpful, instructive and his fees are reasonable. We recommend Mark to everyone we know in need of adoption legal services. We have NEVER had anyone come back disappointed!

I endorse this lawyer. I consider Mark Iverson to be an authority in the area of adoption. I have been his opponent and I can say he is a formidable foe. Still, I would easily recommend him, even to my own family.
