I had a complicated situation; an ex spouse living in a different country and I had filed for bankruptcy few years back. I was receiving many letters from different lawyers and agencies that help collect excess proceeds on my foreclosed house, few of the companies I got letters from were newer or had little experience in excess proceeds. I also talked to several lawyers prior to Mark, and they made it seem it would very hard for me to collect the funds due to my situation. I gave up on trying to collect the funds. Months later I decided to give it one more try. A family member sent me Mark’s information. Since the first day I called, everything was efficient and communication was always very clear. Mark was amazing; he knew exactly what to do and how to proceed in claiming the funds. He was responsive, honest, always positive, very knowlageble and very fair. He got me more than I was expecting and made the expecience very easy and comfortable. I would recommend him to everyone! It was such a pleasure to work with him.
Excellent legal assistance
Mark Hofgard is an excellent attorney. After several bad experiences with other attorneys in the Phoenix area I found Mark by looking up similar cases and seeing who was representing their clients successfully. Mark distinguished himself from others by being prudent with his billings and always responding quickly as I came up with questions. He is also pleasant to work with and patient in explaining legal points or court rules I needed help understanding. If I ever have future legal needs I will go to this firm first.
Professional Services Rendered
Mark when told of our concerns, immediately took the case recognizing our distress. I do not think we could of resolved this without Mark's invention and enthusiasm in righting a wrong for us in reference to a contractor taking advantage. His involvement made the unscrupulous contractor "go away". Thanks Mark!
From the beginning of our contact with Mark and his firm the service was outstanding! Mark is responsive and a true professional! I would recommend him without reservation!
