"FANTASTIC AND I WILL TELL YOU WHY Mark has been my lawyer for two separate cases. When the second work related incident occurred, I didn’t hesitate to call Mark. Mark is very sensitive to issues that need a soft touch. Going through what I was I did not want an out of touch in-compassionate lawyer. I appreciated his approach. He always “showed up”. Emails were sent and received promptly, he was always easy to get a hold of and most importantly never said he was going to do anything he didn’t do. I never felt like I was “just another client” Lastly, his experience was extensive. He communicated in a way that was easy to understand. I didn't have to deal with the legal jargon as with other lawyers." - Jessica 09/06/17

"Wrongful Termination Mark took my case when I was turned by three other attorneys. This was my first experience in dealing with an attorney, and I want to say that working with Mark made it much easier than I expected. He kept me fully informed at all times. He was very professional, dedicated, and hard working. My case was settled after 1-1/2 years due to Mark's hard work." - Anonymous 03/03/15
