Happy clients

  • "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!!!!”
