  • Thanks mark

    “Only need two words: top notch.”

    Michael

  • I felt very confident in his ability to represent me.

    “I contacted Mark via email regarding several traffic violations. He responded that same day and was able to meet with me in person the next evening! Mark is very personable and knowledgeable and I felt very confident in his ability to represent me. He was well prepared for my hearings and was able to secure the best possible outcomes. I will definitely recommend Mark to any of my friends or family needing legal counsel.”

  • Excellent results - Highly recommended - would use again

    “Mark Scheuerman represented me for a traffic violation in Harford County. Facing 5 points, a large fine, plus living over 100 miles away from the incident court, I decided to hire an attorney to represent me. The cost of Mark's representation more than offset what I would have paid for increased auto insurance premiums for the years to come. Despite Harford being one of the toughest courts on traffic violations and a previous conviction on my record, Mark was able to get me probation before judgment (PBJ), which means zero points! My fine was also significantly reduced. Another huge plus was I didn't even need to attend my trial which prevented missing a full day off work and 200+ mile round trip. If I get another traffic violation in the Baltimore area I will definitely be calling again. Thanks.”

  • Best lawyer!

    “Mark is an excellent lawyer. He helped me beat my case. I didn't get any points on my license or any violations. Everyone should go to him for help, he will beat any case! Very thankful for his help.”

  • Reseable and still the best.

    “Mr. Scheuerman was great. When we spoke over the phone and he made claims that he could get me this and that. Then when we got to court thats what he did and more. Not only can he keep his word but he was fair on the price of his service. Proving that the most expensive lawyer aren't the best. I am so glad i choose him to represent me.”
