  • "Quick on his feet"

    “Mark represented my son in traffic court and then at an MVA hearing. Prior to my sons name being called at traffic court, he asked to speak to the State Trooper outside the court room, and struck a deal right then and there. He was both professional and very knowledgeable about MVA laws. Both instances we had very good outcomes. Hopefully, this will be the last time we need him, however, I highly recommend Mark!!!!”

  • The best there is

    “Facing 4 charges against me, including DWI and DUI which if charged I would lose my job. Mark was excited from Day 1 that we have a great case and he is going to do what he can to make sure that we get the best outcome for me, he gave me very detailed instructions on how to help better my case so that we can be prepared in court. Long story short, we beat the case and it was a complete acquittal. Thank you for everything Mark, I recommend you to anybody.”

  • Phenomenal Lawyer that produces the best results for his clients. Worth every penny!

    “Mark Scheurman is one of the best lawyers to have in your corner in tough situations. He wants the best for his clients and produces great results. Under his representation, he always assured me that I was in good hands no matter how much I worried. He listened to me kept me well informed of my rights and options. Long story short I was given 13 citations by a cop after my car was crashed into the sidewalk even though I was not the driver. The citations alone were enough to revoke my license and included $1,300 worth of fines; furthermore, 2 of the citations carried a jail sentence up to 2 months each. I have never been in trouble before and never experienced any of this, but Mark handled everything. The day before court he called and told me he convinced the prosecutor to dismiss all13 citations because she did not have enough evidence to prove I was the driver and the only thing I had to was show up to court. Next thing I know, in court, the prosecutor dismissed every single citation as well as all the fines and I left with a clear record and not having to pay a penny. I'm so grateful for Mark because he really saved me from a bad situation that I was ready to plead guilty to even though I didn't do it because I was scared of the consequences if I didn't win. But he told me he would never let me plead guilty to something I didn't do and he handled it. He really is a blessing and I' m thankful for him and his representation. He knows the law and has a real passion for helping his clients. Thanks again Mark!!!!!! You are greatly appreciated.”
