Excellent attorney - and a decent person
He handled my bankrupty. I was nervous at first, but Mark was very informative as to what I should expect. His rates were fair and I felt secure having him handle this. No one wants to declare bankruptcy, but it's nice to know attorneys like Mark are there to help.

Client review
My former husband filed for bankruptcy nearly 18 months after I moved out of our home and filed for divorce. There had been a transfer of stock into my name that was made well before I left the home....nearly 13 months prior; however, Amy Goldman went after MY assets that had not been originally disclosed in my former husband's declaration. I would have lots nearly $100,000 and not been able to finish my divorce decree in a satisfactory manner as I had huge attorney's bills from my divorce attorney and needed these funds to pay it with. Mark Sharf wrote the best piece I have ever read stating all the reasons why MY property, was in fact, mine. We won the first time in! He did a great job. He is a perfectionist and extremely knowledgeable as well as being extremely bright. Most of all, I deeply appreciated his willingness to share his thoughts on each moment and allow me the opportunity to always state me feelings or opinions on how he felt we should proceed. He was a good listener and a fabulous advocate. I only wish he had specialized in divorce instead of bankruptcy. I'm sure I would have saved tons. I highly recommend Mark Sharf to anyone who needs an outstanding bankruptcy attorney.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I brought Mark in to help a client obtain relief from the automatic stay in a bankruptcy proceeding that appeared to be a fraud intended to prevent my client from foreclosing on some real property. Mark was quick to respond and to explain the client's options, and succeeded in obtaining the needed relief so that the sale could proceed. Mark did a great job on short notice, and both the client and I were very pleased with the result. Mark is smart, responsive, efficient and a pleasure to work with."
