What Our Clients Say

“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


“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
