Highly Successful Resolution for Difficult, Employment-Related Lawsuit

In 2014, Mark Steven Avila successfully represented me in a difficult, employment-related lawsuit made all the more challenging by the nuanced nature of the case. I had never before been involved in any type of litigation and Mr. Avila was very effective at providing guidance and coaching through what proved to be an extremely trying experience. Mr. Avila operates at a high level of skill and integrity– vital for success and for establishing trust and confidence. His reassuring degree of engagement in the case was evident through his many questions and the extensive information he asked me to provide. During the many months he worked on my case, I observed the following: a tireless attention to detail, an impressive ability to connect the dots (often obscured and/or seemingly unrelated dots), an insightful understanding of the “big picture,” a keen memory, pleasant interpersonal skills, and– above all– a commanding knowledge of the law. At all times, I felt that Mr. Avila prioritized my case. He was honest and straightforward in his communications, and was adept at establishing and maintaining a productive relationship with opposing counsel. I feel fortunate to have been represented by Mr. Avila and enthusiastically recommend his legal services.

I had a wrongful termination due to a disability and found the law office of Avila and Shaddow to be very knowledgeable, proactive, and upfront with how they communicated what they can and cannot do in my case. They were always informed and a step ahead in my case. 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.


Mark handled my Sexual Harassment case. He was very caring, knowledgeable and truly fought on my behalf. 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.


The reason why I would recommend Mark S. Avila is based purely on performance. 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.


Mr. Avila from the very moment I met him, conveyed confidence and a level of comfort in his ability and knowledge. This is why I trusted him in the handling of two (2) cases for me. Mr Avila kept me informed as needed about important updates about my case. 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.
