Happy Clients

  • Mark Scheuerman is, in every way, a fantastic lawyer.

    “Mark Scheuerman is, in every way, a fantastic lawyer. He represented me two days in a row, and within a week of being hired. Both court dates had nothing short of fantastic outcomes. He really cares about people, and it shows in the way he conducts himself in and out of the courtroom. He just loves what he does, which makes the process much more smooth. His prices were extremely fair as well, considering the caliber of work you're getting out of it.”

  • Great representation

    “Mark made a very stressful circumstance a piece of cake. He accurately assessed my situation in our initial consult and what he predicted is exactly what happened ... Case dismissed. He was thorough, patient, knowledge, sincere and honest. While sitting in court i observed the behavior and demeanor of the other lawyers with their clients... No interaction or personal attention. I will recommend Mark anyone he can help. Very pleased”

  • 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.”
