  • Great Attorney

    “Mark did a great job getting me a favorable outcome. He communicated with me throughout the process so I could rest easy and not worry about what could have happened. Thank you again Mark and I recommend Mark to anyone who needs an attorney.”

  • Life Saver

    “I'm a business professional who felt like they had everything to lose. Minutes after meeting Mark, I knew he was the right attorney to help me through this trying time. Mark has a great reputation and good rapport with not only the judges and prosecutors but often the police officers as well. Based on the individual circumstances of my case, Mark laid out plan for me to complete prior to my court date. The end result could not have been more favorable and far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend hiring Mark Scheuerman.”

  • Mark Is the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “I was really sweating my ticket for 106 in a 55. Mark showed up, handled his business and got me a FULL ACQUITTAL. This man knows the law and forces the state to meet its burden of proof, like I've never seen before. Priced very fairly and you can't get better representation, believe me, I have tried. I have used a lot of attorneys but none took care of me like this man. I will never use another, that's for sure. Thanks Mark!!!!”

  • Professional, Compassionate and an Extremely Excellent Attorney!

    “I was arrested on a Friday night and I called Mark on Saturday morning. Mark met with me that afternoon. Throughout the MVA hearing and my trial, Mark was professional, caring and compassionate. I was facing multiple traffic violations and a 2nd DUI. Needless to say, I was scared and my future uncertain. Mark explained to me what I had to do to prepare and how he would proceed with my case. Mark always made me feel like we were on this journey together. I never felt alone. At the MVA hearing, Mark saved my license and at my trial, Mark saved my life! Mark's representation of my case was so well presented the judge reduced my charge to a PPJ with no points on my driving record. I am still in amazement what Mark was able to accomplish. Mark truly cares about his clients. He is not only an excellent attorney but a wonderful caring person. I highly recommend Mark and will utilize his law firm again should the need ever arise.”
