dear Markplease accept this letter on my and Susan’s behalf. there is a powerful message and testimony we would like to share with you for the first time.for over a year the weight of what happened to Reid was heavy on our souls. at first we held great anger, resentment and disgust toward Angel (the passenger). it became evident after turning 21 the Angel has a severe alcohol problem which my son nor us fully understood. The arrest also brought us great disappointment, frustration and disheartenment toward Reid.We have found that God often surprises us with his answers to our prayers. Prior to the arrest was had been in prayer that God help turn Reid away from selfishness, childishness and destructive ways. We prayed that God move to change him toward everlasting values and better choices in his life. We believe that God answered that prayer with the arrest. We blamed ourselves for bringing this calamity but understood it would take something this powerful to reach him. There is no doubt in our minds this ordeal has placed a permanent imprint on his soul.during the many delays associated with this case we were able to put forgiveness in our hearts toward Angel. Also during the many delays the full weight of the case in our and Reid’s mind triggered conversations pertaining to life decisions and direction. Time allowed us the opportunity to be rid of the noise and cloudiness of our emotions. We believe this to be a part of the master plan that God was overseeing.Only today did the full story become revealed. During this case with all the odds against us can we say without question that God was in it. How else could the series of events occurred within the judicial process that could put the opportunity in to your mind that there was a way to victory. The entire morning Susan and i were in fervent prayer even after your told us we had only a 25% chance of winning.Grace is the receipt of a blessing that is undeserved. Reid did not deserve to win today. We all are eternally marked by the message of grace given to us and you were the instrument that brought the gift to our house. Thank you from bottom of our souls and may God bless and keep you all of your days.

Dear Mr. Lassiter,Today you saved my son’s life. When he received a DWI, it broke my heart because I knew it would be on his record forever. It would limit his options in life. He would be paying for his stupid mistake for the rest of his life. At 21 years of age he was overwhelmed with the depth of the problem he created for himself.I decided to find him the best lawyer in Dallas, and I did. I researched lawyers for two days, and then I found you. I knew from the moment I read about you that you were the one we needed. When I met you, I knew instantly that I had complete confidence in you. Even if the result had ended with my son being guilty, I would have had peace knowing that he had had THE BEST lawyer.Listening to you “own” the courtroom today was amazing. You told us in the morning that we only had about 25% chance to win; however, by the middle of the afternoon the case was over before the prosecutors even finished, and we won! What an incredible lawyer you are!I will be grateful forever to you. Your work has given my son a second chance. He left the courtroom today with a whole new perspective on life…thanks to you!Very sincerely,

- Susan Ellis

unless you are already a petty criminal with countless B and C misdemeanors and a misdemeanor A pending, a DWI charge might not really matter much – for all the others counts: Fight it with all you got – get the best professional to your side you can find!Why should you? A simple google search “Texas DWI penalties” will give you an idea what you are looking at: prison, probation, fines, classes, ignition interlock, insurance rate skyrockets and a criminal record for life (yes – this can happen even for a first time DWI in Texas) Now if you read until this point you probably are charged with a DWI (or simply board) and you are shopping for a lawyer – so some basic guidance:a) Same as in real life: You want to be surrounded by people who know what they are talking about. Nobody likes people who constantly brag around, through around the usual business buzz words which doesn’t mean anything. So: Get somebody who is specialized in this field, means if 50% or more of his work is in the field of defending DWI’s that’s probably a good indicator– Mark is one of them – talk to him you will see!b) Educate yourself – thanks to a wonderful innovation by DARPA (which you are using in this moment) you can read all about it: What happened the night before, what’s a SFT, what is a legal stop, how does an Intoxilyzer 5000 work and what flaws does it have, possible plea bargain options (not so tempting ones in TX anyway) – read the stuff, it’s out there and discuss it with your attorney – if he doesn’t want or can’t answer your questions, that’s a pretty good indicator that your sitting in the wrong office, run!– Mark WILL answer your questions – and I’m convinced you cannot surprise him with a question in your case that he can’t answer or will find an answer for you!c) Your lawyer should – more or less – from the beginning be willing to take your case to Trial, all the way. What do you have to lose? If you are a BAC 0.28 candidate and you plea it down to a misdemeanor B it technically looks better on paper – but it will still follow you for life (most employers wouldn’t even consider the difference or know it – a DWI is a DWI…) If you are a BAC 0.09 candidate your chances are even better – (did you know the Intoxilyzer 5000 gives himself a +-0.02 calibration margin? What now, is a BAC 0.09 and hour after driving now under the legal limit? Guess what, the state will state “off course NOT! The magic machine proved he’s Intoxicated and guilty!” That’s why you need a lawyer on your side who is willing to take it to trial!– Mark is a trial lawyer – those people don’t want to plea out, they need the courtroom as their stage, that’s what they love to do, that’s what they are good at – so let him do it for you!d) Money / Costs – completely neglect. This is not the time for price comparison. You are not out there to shop for new hardwood floor for your living room – you are out there to get the best possible outcome in a situation which initial will hurt you if convicted pretty bad (financially), possible cost you your job, destroy your reputation and will follow you around for the rest of your natural life.– Mark will not overcharge you for his service, in my opinion you are getting a great deal. If you have the feeling you cannot afford a lawyer like Mark put it into perspective: if you hire a $500 lawyer and plead guilty maybe to a DWI misdemeanor B, you will pay much more over the years in court costs, classes, probation fees, DPS surcharges, insurance and and and… But if you hire Mark, you have one of the best at your side, you have a real chance – off course Mark isn’t a magic wizard who can make everything go away in a moment’s notice, but 5,10,20 years down the road you don’t want to think “oh boy, I wish I would have fought this thing more aggressively back then…” I was already a bit into my case when I met Mark. Mark has a can do attitude, does not try to beat around the bush and most importantly: He looks at things, tries different avenues, seeks out weaknesses in the case base on the evidence presented – if you meet him, you will have the same experience. During our meetings we discussed alternatives and other options e.g. expert witnesses, jury trial, bench trial, plea agreement (even if he didn’t like that – Mark doesn’t want to plea, he wants to win for his clients)And here is the outcome:A clear acquittal – NOT GUILTY(even better than a dismissal which technically can be reopened by the DA within the statute of limitations – if I understood that right – Not guilty means you are not guilty, case expunged – that’s the end of it!)Mark’s services helped me to get the best possible outcome you can expect when you are charged with a (DWI / DUI) crime and I hope I will never see him again…..

After being accused of a Minor In Consumption (MIC) charge during my freshman year of college, I went to Mr. Lassiter for help. With essentially no knowledge of what to do, Mark really helped to guide me through the legal process and truly made me confident that I would have a positive outcome to the case. As a college student I have an overwhelming amount of work as it is, and Mark really seemed to take this into account when contacting me. He did not waste my time with unimportant minor issues and only contacted me when it was truly important and directly relevant to the outcome of the case. The most important part about Mr. Lassiter’s services though was the result. My case did not even go to trial and was thrown out of court based on Mark’s aggressive defense. Mr. Lassiter’s services are worth every penny and I do remind you that I am a “starving college student” so that means a lot. Needless to say, he truly was a pleasure with which to work and I will give him a call if I ever have legal trouble in Dallas again.

- Matthew E.

Mark is an exceptional attorney who has worked tirelessly to obtain the best possible deal to help my teenage child. He is very accessible and always takes the time to explain the options that can be taken to achieve the best possible legal outcome. For young clients, he serves as a role model for responsible behavior as well. I’m very pleased with his services and highly recommend him.

- Jeff

I had never been in trouble with the law. I had no idea who to call or what to do and I was certain this was going to hang over me the rest of my life. Mark took care of everything. From the first conversation he put my mind at ease and assured me everything was going to be OK…and he was right. He literally made it GO AWAY! Thank goodness. Now, that one moment of my life will not ever define who or what I am.

- Steph

I found information regarding Mark by searching the web while in Illinois and my son was needing representation in Tarrant County Texas. Mark returned every single call I made, and every email I sent. I believe that Mark is a fair and honest and will try to do what is best for who he represents.

- Glenn

In need of legal representation, we researched qualified attorneys in the Dallas Area.At our initial consultation with Mark Lassiter, he discussed his fees, plan of action, and potential outcomes of the case. We found him to be not just competent, but detail-oriented and thorough. His knowledge of the law and court proceedings was comforting.Mark Lassiter kept us informed of progress, and was able to resolve the case as quickly as possible. Through his diligence, we got the best possible outcome.We would highly recommend his services to anyone who asks.

- Bob and Jill

When my son was arrested for shoplifting, Mark was able to make the first court date with him on very short notice. He handled everything expeditiously and kept me informed of each step taken and what we would need to do to move on quickly. He spoke to my son and me in layman’s terms so there was no second guessing as to what he meant. I had never needed a criminal defense attorney in the past but it’s good to know if I ever need one again, I can depend on Mark.

- Laurie D.

With Mark’s advise and help, a very uncomfortable position was made bearable. His experience with the Dallas County Court system was invaluable. He has personal knowledge of the ins and outs of specific courts, Assistant DA’s and judges. We found this information to be both accurate and assuring during a trying time for our family. While I hope and pray we will never need his assistance again, he is loaded in my contacts and we know that in only a few minutes we can obtain expert advise.

- Scott P.

Obviously you have accessed Mark Lassiter’s website, please bear with me while I inform you about your good fortune. Unfortunately I found myself retained by the Garland Police some time ago on a DWI charge. I have never heard any of my friends/co-harts discuss this subject. Due to the personal humiliation of the circumstances, this is not something that I would approach them on either. So I had to rely on Google to find attorneys that dealt with this type of thing for Garland. Finding multiple hits I began the review of websites until I accessed M. Lassiter’s. I was extremely impressed. I made contact with him with the normal trepidation of retaining an unknown individual for such a sensitive personal matter. Little did I know at the time of my good luck. During the course of my case, a couple of attributes I learned about M. Lassiter are as follows:· He was very capable, and never lost focus of my case and best interests· He was easy to talk to and actually listened and responded to the pros and cons of my standpoints· He is a very personable and energetic personUltimately I am sure you will find retention of M. Lassiter a most beneficial partnership in the resolution of your case.Best Regards,

When my family was faced with a serious legal matter, I contacted a number of popular and high profile attorneys. I was told that this case had no precedence and could not be won. As a result, my families hope for an appeal became grim. Attorney Mark Lassiter returned my call promptly and restored my hope in justice. He was upfront and honest about the legal prognosis and informed me that this case would be tough. However, he stated he understood the merits and would do his best in representing my family. I hired him and within days he had a new hearing scheduled and assembled my family at his office to review the facts, and initiate a defense. The expertise and guidance he showed during preparation for this case was very reassuring and it gave us that glimmer of hope we so desperately wanted to grab onto. He remained optimistic and responsive during the days prior to the hearing. He was in constant communication by either email or phone and I never felt like this was just “another case” for him. He was extremely inclusive about his plans and explained the law in great detail, yet in its simplest form of comprehension. I am pleased to say that his brilliant legal strategy, mixed with professionalism and compassion, paid off and score a victory that ALL the brilliant legal minds said could not be won.You know when you seek medical care; you put your life in the hands of doctors. You want someone to fight for you as they would fight for themselves. The same occurs with an attorney and Mark is definitely someone that will fight for you.

- Dr. Patrick W.

Mark’s comprehensive knowledge of DUI law and trial experience mastered a defensible case which led to an acquittal of all charges against me. He demonstrated a no-nonsense approach to the facts that shut down the misleading rhetoric of the prosecution and successfully crushed any chance of being found guilty. Simply put, I was amazed! It is obvious that Mark is relentless in seeking favorable outcomes for his clients. I am very grateful for all that he did for me and highly recommend him to anyone that is in the unfortunate position of facing a DUI charge.

- Patrick H.

Mark Lassiter got my DWI case dismissed. If it had gone to trial, I was absolutely sure that we would have won. Not because I didn’t make a mistake or because I hadn’t surrendered my rights to the arresting officer and given them the necessary evidence, but because Mark’s absolutely phenomenal navigation of the process and anticipation of the pre-trial conduct of the prosecution rendered his readiness to dominate in the trial on my behalf unnecessary. Do not leave your impending case to chance. Before my case was called, I had the opportunity to watch how other defense lawyers handled their business in regards to their upcoming cases. There wasn’t one of them that I would have preferred to have on my side instead of Mark. One of them even threw away the opportunity that Mark had used to get my case dismissed.

- AVVO Client

“I would like to make strong recommendation of Mark Lassiter based on my experience when I recently retained him for a felony DUI charge. I chose Mr. Lassiter on a personal recommendation of another client who spoke very highly of their experience with him.From start to finish, Mr. Lassiter was a pleasure to deal with both in his professionalism and his confident demeanor. His experience with DUI was evident from my first meeting with him and I retained him on the spot. As a former attorney, I had a good idea what I was looking for and I felt confident that Mr. Lassiter fit the bill.My experience did not disappoint. The case proceeded through the hearings exactly as Mr. Lassiter had described as the likely scenario in my initial consultation with him. Throughout the ordeal, Mr. Lassiter’s communication was timely and his turnaround on questions quick. At no moment did I ever question that I had hired exactly the right attorney for my defense.The result was the dismissal of my case and I am awaiting the statutory time frame to get my record expunged. I could not have been more satisfied with my representation in this matter.”

- Tony, a DUI Client

Very Good Lawyer “Mr. Lassiter was a excellent lawyer for me. 16 months ago I was arrested for a DWI. I could no longer keep my job if I was found guilty of the crime. I was found innocent of all crimes and my record is now clean. Thank you Mr. Lassiter.”

- Dan, a DUI Client

I Highly Recommend Mark Lassiter “I contacted Mark Lassiter based on a personal recommendation. I had never needed an attorney for a criminal matter before, and felt confident in Mr. Lassiter as soon as I first spoke with him.He immediately took charge of my case, appeared at hearings for me, and kept me informed of the status. He always responded quickly to phone calls and e-mails, and at each step of the process he clearly explained my options and the implications of each.My case never went to trial, but I was even more impressed with his abilities, confidence, and attention to detail when I observed him in court representing another client.I feel fortunate to have had an attorney of this caliber represent me, and highly recommend Mark Lassiter.”

- Roy

Professional, Confident, Trustworthy Attourney “Mark Lassiter handled my legal case in a very professional and proficient manner. From day one he was always available for questions and always returned out of office messages when needed. As a person that has never had to deal with any legal matters until 2010, this is a peace of mind that anyone can appreciate. Mark advised me of every step of the legal case process and even though my case never went to a trial, he kept me current and briefed of everything from the start to the final day of the case dismissal. I would highly recommend Mark Lassiter to anyone who is in need of any kind of legal defense. His persistence, professionalism, and experience from his prior legal roles definitely emerged and is a success story for me personally in my opinion”

- Christopher, a DUI Client

The attorney I would recommend for any DWI charge “If you are looking for legal assistance with a DWI charge, I would highly recommend Mark Lassiter. I was charged with DWI some time ago and did not know what to do. My friends and co-workers had never brought up this subject and due to the personal humiliation of the circumstances, I did not feel that I could approach them either. Thus, I was left to search Google websites for attorneys who handle cases of this nature when I came across Mark Lassiter’s website. I was extremely impressed. I made contact with him with the normal trepidation of retaining an unknown individual for such a sensitive personal matter. Little did I know at the time of my good luck.Ultimately Mark Lassister obtained a most favorable resolution for my case. During the course of this process, a couple of attributes I discovered about Mark Lassiter are as follows:. He was very capable, and never lost focus of my case and best interests . He was easy to talk to and actually listened and responded to the pros and cons of my standpoints . He is a very personable and energetic person who was commited to getting the most favorable resolution for meInasmuch, I am sure that your retention of Mark Lassiter will result in a most beneficial partnership and the very best of results for you in your case.”

- Rita, a DUI Client

Excellent Attorney! “I hired Mr. Lassiter for a complex criminal case procedure that was very important to my family. He knew just what needed to be done and got it done without my having to push him or follow-up. Great service and responsiveness. I recommend him highly.”

- Frank, a Criminal Defense Client

Absolute peace of mind! “Mark Lassiter was my lawyer when I was facing a DWI charge. I have barely had a speeding ticket prior to this situation, so I was naturally panicked. Mark put me at ease from the moment I met with him. It was nice to have an expert in my corner and I truly do not know how I would’ve navigated the situation without him. The best part was that I was acquitted of the charge! Mark was a bulldog in the courtroom and a rock for me. His rates are more than fair to top it off. He is quick to return phone calls and emails. In fact, I was so pleased with Mark that I referred my younger brother to him.”

- Sarah, a DUI Client

The best of several I’ve tried. “So here you are looking into attorneys. You have my sympathy. Whatever has gone wrong in your life can be difficult to fix.In my case, kids getting into drugs. It starts small and keeps growing until you find yourself looking for attorneys.Along the way, I used multiple other attorneys. I haven’t written a recommendation for any of them. For me, Mark was a shot in the dark where I believed, after speaking with him, that he would likely result in a more favorable outcome.Well, my belief in Mark turned out to be extremely well founded. Further, he has several additional qualities that make working with him a pleasure. He is always patient explaining options, “what if” scenarios, and likely outcomes. My experience has shown him to be a superb negotiator as well.To sum it up: if you need a criminal attorney, I believe Mark will be a pleasant surprise. Good luck with your case.” t

- Jeff, a Criminal Defense Clien

Great, professional DWI lawyer “I first came upon Mr. Lassiter after hiring another attorney that was, in my opinion, not pursuing all options. Mark Lassiter stepped in and within no time my DWI case was dismissed. I never felt nervous when Mark was in control of the case. Mark Lassiter will always return emails, phone calls and keep you updated of all progress on the case. I would gladly recommend Mr. Lassiter to anyone in need of good counsel.”

- Jerod, a DUI Client

“I was arrested in March 2010 for suspicion of DWI, and had blown a 0.18. I retained Mark 3 days later and through his hard work and diligence my case was dismissed without my ever having to appear in front of a judge. His knowledge of criminal law is incredible, and he is very kind, and was incredibly respectful and encouraging throughout this entire harrowing process. Previous to this arrest I had never had so much as a speeding ticket and I came into this extremely scared and terrified of the long term implications of a DWI conviction in Texas, as Texas is not a state that allows adjudication and I am an RN who made one incredibly bad decision, but a conviction on DWI could cost me my license to practice. I chose Mark on the recommendation of several people whom I trust, and I am so glad I did! His staff is very courteous and helpful, and his track record is impeccable! I honestly didn’t dare hope that I might be so fortunate as to get my case dismissed, but Mark came through for me with flying colors! Thanks to Marks knowledge and hard work I will be eligible to have this arrest expunged from my record in two years, and can relax knowing that my license to practice is safe. Mark was also always willing to hear me out and never tried to pressure me into anything I was uncomfortable doing, he returned my calls and emails within hours and did everything he could to reassure me that while there was a great deal of gravity to the situation I had landed myself in, that he would champion my cause. I made a terrible, terrible choice, and I am so grateful and fortunate the no one was hurt. I owe so much to Mark, and I will never be able to thank him enough for his hard work on my behalf.”

The best DUI / DWI Attorney in Texas!! “Hi my name is Raul and I got a dwi and was recommended by a friend to mark Lassiter. Her cousin had hired him and was very happy with him and the outcome of the case in which they won and was also a dwi case. So I went to talk to mark about my case we reviewed it he told me what he thought of the case and what he could do for me. I was very happy and relieved about what we talked about now it was just a waiting game till this point. There were times where I had questions and was able to call him at anytime and he was more than happy to awnser any question that I had. He is a very knowledgable attorney I would recommend him to anybody with a DUI / dwi. The outcome of my case was found not guilty. Now to sum it up mark Lassiter is one heck of an attorney.”“He handled an unjust ticket for me and was very thorough and on time with notices, etc. His communication was short and to the point without false fluffy words or promises.”

Don’t chance it, resolve it. “Mark Lassiter got my DWI case dismissed. If it had gone to trial, I was absolutely sure that we would have won.

Mark did an awesome job at my case. I thought in the begining I had no hope to get out of this DWI. After meeting Mark the very first time he showed me things that I did not realize about my case, that made me believe I still had hope. He was always on top of my case and always knew what was going on. The DA knew they could not stand a chance against him, and DISMISSED my case!!!! I would recommend him to anybody. (I keep his business card in my wallet just in case anything were to ever happen).

- Kamra

Mark got my assault case dismissed…thanks

- Arturo Arredondo

Mark Lassiter is the best DWI Attorney in Dallas. He got my case completely dismissed! He was extremely professional, yet personable and easy to work with. When I initially called Mark, I was scared and I didn’t want to leave something that is as important as my driving and criminal record up to chance. I wanted nothing short of the greatest. When I got arrested, I blew over the legal limit (thanks to Mark, I now know how to handle getting pulled over without being stupid). As far as I was concerned, all I could do his hope for a best case scenario. Mark expertly navigated the legal system, was fully prepared to dominate the trail and basically let the prosecution shoot themselves in the foot. My case was dismissed completely. I’ll forever be grateful to Mark for his services as I don’t have to live with a DWI conviction on my record. Mark fought the law and he won.

- Josh Hunter

After being charged with a 1st time DWI, I was in a state of disarray and confusion on what to do or who to consult in the situation. I didn’t know where to begin but after explaining the situation to a fellow co-worker, I was referred by my co-worker to Mark and scheduled a meeting to have him review the information pertaining to the accused offense. I had heard from other people to go to a few attorneys to see what each one would offer but I decided that after the first meeting with Mark that I would be wasting my time to even fathom using anyone else besides Mark for my DWI defense attorney. Within the first 2 minutes of explaining my very unusual case of being pulled over by a Texas Highway Patrolman on the Dallas North Tollway because of an anonymous call from an unknown source made to the North Texas Tollway Authority about a domestic dispute that supposedly involved myself and my girlfriend, which was a complete fabrication and simply a complete lie from the anonymous caller. This of course prompted the TXHP to initiate a stop without one traffic violation committed on my part. Now as you can imagine, I was furious about the entire situation of being pulled over because I felt like I was being wrongly accused from the very beginning. At this point of explaining to Mark, he told me that the arresting officer had zero probable cause from an anonymous call to initiate a traffic stop and that I was correct in refusing the field sobriety tests, which turned into an automatic arrest charge of DWI. At this point, very candidly let the arresting officer know exactly what I felt about her and her “supposed” probable cause for not just pulling me over but also for even questioning me on the situation. Let’s just say that it was very R Rated to say the least. After reviewing the video with Mark, he reassured me of how it didn’t matter what was said to the officer nor what the magistrate ordered blood results would reveal. This approach of being calm and professional by letting Mark expose the states’ case against me made me feel like I couldn’t have been referred to a better attorney than Mark Lassiter. The quote from Mark I will always remember is “Just go about your daily regular life and don’t worry about it because he would take care of it” and of course this quote at the time seemed like a hard sale but turned out to be the absolute 100 percent truth. Mark ended up being persistent and navigating through the reassignment of at least 5 different prosecutors explaining my case and after 10 long months he presented me with the notarized dismissal paperwork of my case completely due to the hard work and persistence of Mark explaining that the stop was unjustified. This result solidified keeping my job and avoiding any additional ramifications that would have stuck with me forever. I would and will recommend Mark to anyone having to deal with a DWI offense or any other criminal matter in the future because there is no one better.Thanks again Mark.

- Kyle – DWI client

I am a very satisfied and a relived client. After meeting with various lawyers Mark was the one who won me over. Walking into his office you will be impressed of all his credentials. He is professional and aggressive which is what everyone looks for in a attorney. Every other lawyer I interviewed mentioned to "plea deal", I knew that meant settling. A DWI on my record was the LAST thing I wanted. I was very hopeless and scared (considering it was my first offense) but Mark always reassured me that I had a very good case. Ultimately, Mark did a phenomenal job in the court room (he had the prosecutors speechless), which resulted in a dismissal. I recommend this man to everyone I know. Thank you Mark, I owe you my life.

I recently was referred to contact Mark Lassiter by a colleague and called him for a consultation related to a recent arrest for public intoxication in Dallas. He was terrific; I had never been arrested before and was unsure of what the appropriate next steps would be. He was detailed in his step-by-step approach and provided me sound legal advice on how he would handle this case.I elected to hire him as my attorney and it was the best decision. He handled my case and was able to get the charges dismissed. As a professional it was imperative to be able to get this charge removed from my record.If you are in need of a criminal defense attorney, I would highly recommend Mark's services.

- PS

I had my first DWI charge and I was unclear of next steps. I was getting propositioned left and right by less ethical lawyers and one even "claimed" my case and I missed my court date. However, Mark Lassiter and his amazing paralegal took care of everything. They were very prompt and clear with their communication on every step of the process. Also if anything came up I got a call right away and they let me know what I needed to do next. Honestly made this stressful situation manageable. I already recommend them to anyone who is going through the same situation as me. That said he does come at a premium cost but is worth every penny, and his team is willing to work with you on payment plans.

Mark is a very intelligent professional defense Attorney on my DWI offense that Mark convinced the jury that i wasn't guilty i highy recommend Mark to my family and friends once again thanks Mark

- Carlos

When my son received a DWI, I wanted to get him THE BEST lawyer I could find. I researched for two days, and then I found Mark Lassiter. I looked no further. As soon as I read about him, I knew that I found THE BEST. From the moment I met him, I had COMPLETE confidence in him. At the end of my son's trial, Mr. Lassiter came through with a defense case so impressive that the case was dismissed before the prosecutors finished their argument. I will always be grateful to him.
