Mr. Ghaowi has been my attorney for over 4 years now, representing me on personal and commercial matters. He has helped me with all kinds of cases, from minor traffic violations to helping me close on my property. Most recently he has helped me successfully change my business legal entity from Sole-Proprietorship to a Limited Liabilty Company. I highly recommend his services over anyone else. He is an honest, reliable, affordable, and knowledgable attorney.

Highly recommended
I've had the pleasure of Mark's assistance multiple times. The first was with a real estate transaction a few years ago, followed by assistance preparing my Will. More recently, he prepared my POA, updated Will and Living Trust. Mark takes charge of a situation, explores all possible options and clearly communicates those options as well as their advantages and disadvantages. He is respectful and honest. I highly recommend Mark Ghaowi for those in need of the services he offers.
