Hurt At Work

I have given Mark many legal cases over the past several years. The outcome has always been 100% favorable; and in many instances, the results have surpassed my expectation. He is also very professional, charismatic and extremely hard working.

When I contacted his law firm, his staff is always pleasant, polite and prompt, in getting my issue resolved. I would certainly, recommend Mr Avila for any legal matter, his firm handles. He is a credit and a valuable asset to the legal profession.

If you want someone that will really fight for you then Mark is the Attorney for you. When going through something as traumatic as that you need someone that cares about their client and is passionate about their work.

I found them to be compassionate and aggressive with a fire to succeed which proved to be a winning combination. The results turned out to be more than I expected. I had interviewed other lawyers before I had Avila and Shaddow represent me and I can attest to the fact that I made the right decision.
