He took care of me…

I had a DUI charge with a high blood alcohol level. I wanted trial unless there was a situation that worked for me. Mark kept me informed of every step along the way. We pushed for trial. After several hearings and two days before trial the DA calls us with an offer I could not refuse. Mark was ready for trial and I only took the offer because it was that good. Our defense was ready for trial. I felt that he was always one step ahead. You cannot go wrong with him.

Commendable attorney, positive results…

I was accused of taking items from a popular department store. They say I took expensive items so the dollar amount was high. The prosecutor charged burglary and theft. Mr. Deniz met with us and gathered character letters from people who know me. He met with prosecutors and told them about me. He got me started before the meeting with volunteer work. By the second hearing, they were willing to dismiss the case in a few months. I knew I made a mistake and took responsibility for it. However, Mr. Deniz ensured the event would not harm her down the road. He was great.

Reduced fine and probation with no jail…

I was lucky to find Mark. I was scared about losing my job from this. Mark resolved the matter without me losing my job or too much skin off my back. He always communicated with me and let me know I was a priority. I hope never to be in a bind again, but if I am I am calling him.

The Best Defense Is A Good Offense

Most criminal defense attorneys wait until hearing dates or until the prosecutor offers a plea bargain before taking action on your case. This is reactive and ineffective. You cannot afford to settle for less than the absolute maximum effort to minimize the impact of an arrest.

At The Law Offices of Mark Deniz APLC, we take a proactive approach that doesn’t waste time waiting for an initial court date. Mr. Deniz, a former prosecutor, will immediately begin reviewing the facts of your case to identify any weaknesses that can be used against the prosecution.
