I have known Mark for over 15 years and have never been less than satisfied by both his professional advice and his frank approach to every case whereby he tells the truth plainly and without adornment and as a client you learn to respect his advice, however painful it can sometimes feel. He is irritatingly usually correct. He is also a fellow Evertonian but I would never dream of letting that colour my judgement. One of the North’s top, top lawyers. Good luck striking out on your own mark – and team.

Perhaps Marks greatest asset is his warm personality which makes him a great person to do business with.

Both times I came out the other side with a big smile on my face. You have an amazing reputation and every time I have recommended you to some of my show business pals they have rang singing your praises. If there were more people within the legal profession that helped and gave value for money as you do it would be a better world. Thank you so much for your kindness, support and the fact that you are there 24 hours a day to help me through sometimes a legal minefield.
