      Mark did a wonderful job as our real estate attorney. His attention to detail, promptness, and professionalism is unmatched. He personally answered questions and guided us through the process as a first time homebuyer in great detail. We truly would have been lost without him and we would have had problems with the seller without his help. I would refer Mark to anyone and we will be using his services again. Thanks Mark!
