“I just wanted to thank you for sending attorney Marks my way. He was great to work with, very responsive and knew the subject matter inside and out. He handled our Medicaid appeal with a sense of purpose and professionalism that we needed despite some very difficult ancillary issues. He brought our appeal to a successful outcome and I would not hesitate to recommend him in the future. Thanks again”

Meredith H.

“Mr. Marks helped me with legal paperwork on two occasions. I am very happy with his service. Both times, he helped me in complex situations. His service was prompt, courteous, and with attention to all relevant details.”

Former Client

“I needed paperwork quick. He took care of it and the price was excellent.”


“A person purchased our mortgage and we were being overcharged, a lot. Michael not only helped us figure this out and was finally able to make the person give us a payoff number. We were able to take that to the bank and refinance with a real bank. We would still be under the person's thumb and struggling to pay the higher mortgage if Michael had not done such a fantastic job! I really can't not say thank you enough. He was excellent!!!”

Aleeta & Michael

“Thank you for doing a great job on the estate. You are a true professional.”

Maggie M.

“Thank you so much for your hard work on my husband's estate. I did receive the fund's form (the bank) after one week after you filed the Court Order. You and your staff have made the experience very educational and easier than I expected.”

Nancy G.

“Thank you for all the help, I met you at the worse time in my life, but will always remember you for your kindness and patience.”
