Amazing, Reliable and Superb Attorney! The Great Mark Deserves 100% Marks
Mark achieved everything that I thought wasn’t possible. He overcame every obstacle that the DA threw at him, approached the case with confidence, and ultimately claimed a victory for me. I am incredibly grateful for Mark Thiessen.
One of the best criminal attorneys in Houston
Excellent. Mark is, without a doubt, not only one of the best criminal attorneys in Houston, but in this part of the country.
I knew within 10 seconds after meeting Mark that he was going to be the attorney representing me in my case.
If you do not hire Mark Thiessen to represent you in your DWI case, then you will be making a huge mistake that could personally and professionally follow you around for the rest of your life. I aggressively shopped law firms online and interviewed numerous attorneys before I met with Mark. I knew within 10 seconds after meeting Mark that he was going to be the attorney representing me in my case.
Mark is a very knowledgeable, tough, no nonsense kind of guy. I cannot begin to tell you how important this is because the legal process is a tough roller coaster ride that will beat you down. Knowing that Mark was watching my back thru the process was a huge help beyond any description.
Even with Mark leading the charge, I honestly thought my chances of receiving anything less than a full conviction were rather slim because my case is what is referred to as a “blood case” and nobody beats a blood case (or so I thought). I also had a firearm unlawful carry charge (even though I had a conceal carry permit), so I was expecting the worse. Fortunately, Mark saw otherwise. I still remember the day he called me to tell me the unlawful carry charge had been dropped and the DUI case was reduced to 12 month deferred adjudication for reckless driving.
Lastly, Mark’s staff was at all times 100% professional and committed to providing the best service to their clients. I was always treated with the utmost respect and was always kept informed of the progress with my case. I hope you never have to go thru the process I had to endure, but if you get into legal trouble, call Mark.
Mark Thiessen Has The “IT” Factor
Often times we hear about how Michael Jordan or Tom Brady just have/had that “IT” factor. In the sporting world the “IT” factor will win you games and championships. In the work world the “IT” factor will earn you praise, money, pretty girls/or guys if that’s your preference and MONEY….. When it comes to the LAW and the “IT” factor; it can mean your freedom or justice. We often take our freedoms for granted and find ourselves on the other side of the law. In that case we have to rely on a lawyer to defend our rights when we or someone else violates our freedoms. In my case, my freedom was violated when an intoxicated group of people decided to gang up on me at a house party in what I would consider a nice part of Houston. Never would I have thought that I would have to defend my freedom and safety in a situation that didn’t seem threatening.
Unfortunately when people drink too much and overindulge themselves in liquid courage anything is possible. Being attacked from behind with verbal and physical assault, I had to defend myself and make split-second decisions. So I ended up having to punch my attacker several times while being attacked by his group of friends. People got hurt, by the grace of GOD I was able to escape the carnage to live another day. Without knowing who attacked me or anyone else at the party other than the few people I came with. I had no idea who to mention when I called the cops to file a police report. Six months after the altercation I was issued a warrant for my arrest from the person who attacked me. Now, most people would wonder how that is possible. I sure did!. I wondered how I could be attacked and assaulted by several people just to be the one the cops or the law came after. The person who I defended myself against investigated me on Facebook and was able to file charges against me. Great idea when you think about it right? Well, I didn’t have a clue who anyone was and when I tried to find out no one seemed to know who this group of people were…
So who do you call in this situation??? Someone you trust? Someone who will fight for your rights? Someone who understands the results of the loss of Freedom and what it can do to your family? Someone who will go up against all the odds and take on a challenge that most lawyers wouldn’t even touch? Someone who you can count on in the clutch? Someone who when the chips are stacked up against you will fight tooth and nail for you? Last but most importantly has the “IT’ Factor!!! If you want to know the answer, just call Mark Thiessen!… That’s who I called and wouldn’t have had it any other way. My case took about 2 years to finally resolve. Mark’s advice was spot on and every step he took was a step in the right direction. When at some points I would question his judgment, his knowledge would turn to be more prophetic. During Trial, he operated the courtroom with charisma and respect. His ability to connect with the Jury on a personal level was amazing! Throughout the entire process I always felt Mark had my back, and in my heart and mind knew I had the right person defending myself. Mark is said to be a up and coming lawyer amongst his peers. In my mind, he is already worthy of being considered one of the Big Guns in this town. You don’t go to war without your gun, so why take a BB Gun when you can take the biggest and baddest gun you can find!
Thank you, Mark, for saving my career
“I’m in medical sales, so when I was wrongly accused and my career was on the line, I called the best: Mark Thiessen.
Mark came highly referred to me from my friends. After reading his reviews on line and meeting him in his office, I knew I could trust Mark to fight for me. Every time he walks in the court the DAs, Judge and staff all greet him. I was honestly proud that was my lawyer when he came in.
I had a very complex case with some tough issues, but Mark didn’t give up. He told me: if they want to label you a criminal and cost you your career, they can find you guilty over my dead body. We set it for trial and Mark showed up very ready. The State actually dismissed my case before trial. I was so excited but, I kind of wanted to see Mark in trial. The guy is a beast.
Side note: a year later, I got to see Mark in trial as he won my brother’s best friend’s trial. His whole heart and soul goes into it. He’s a fighter for sure.
Hire Mark when you can’t afford to lose. He’s the best.
Thank you, Mark, for saving my career.”
My case is now dismissed and I can finally put this all behind me.
I am a professional business leader part of a Fortune 1,000 company. A year and a half ago my mother has just diagnosed with stage four ovarian cancer. At 8 pm on a Thursday night my stepdad called and told me that she had been rushed to the medical center.
I made a terrible decision!!
To get in my car to be there for my mother. I was pulled over and charged with Driving while intoxication. Never being faced with anything like this, I did not where to turn for help. I called a friend that had gone through something very similar in the past and she without hesitation told me to call Mark, she gave me his cell phone number and within 24 hours I was sitting in his office. He was very honest and sympathetic to my situation. He took my case and we went through the process. He always told me that he had my back and that I should take care of my mom. He would say, “I got this”.
He was very professional and gave me great advice. My Mom passed this last August and though this was a horrible mistake I was still able to be with my Mom until the end. My case is now dismissed and I can finally put this all behind me thanks to Mark and his professional team.
This is the only lawyer you should choose for your peace of mind
Good evening, it took me a long time but finally I can actually express the sentiments I felt from the beginning of my nightmare to the end of it with leaps of joy.
This is not a paid comment or was I ever asked to do it, from the beginning where you feel like the whole world is dark and you don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel, everyone at the Thiessen Law Firm welcomed me and my family but most importantly they were clear in their answers to the many questions I had.
Never doubted on a positive outcome as I could see their expertise and the way they would be relaxed and calm on going about their business as if you were watching a perfectly synced movie!
Ultimately Mr. Thiessen, Mr. Denuna and Ms. Bedru, all came through for my case and the most incredible thing was having my case dismissed.
I am at a loss of words as well as I would hope I could write a more detailed message!
THIS IS THE ONLY LAWYER YOU SHOULD CHOOSE FOR YOUR PEACE OF MIND!
I will always be grateful for having God put you in my path Mr. Thiessen!
Thank you always to you and your firm!
Mark Thiessen is a criminal defense all-star. If he can’t get you a win, nobody can.
“Simply put, Mark Thiessen is a criminal defense all-star. If he can’t get you a win, nobody can.
I’ve worked with Mark and his team on two very different cases, and both times I’ve been blown away by the level of honesty, strategy, and respect that Thiessen Law Firm brings to the table.
You can feel the difference the second you step in the courtroom with Mark by your side. The time he has taken to build relationships and earn respect is clear. He knows how to push the envelope while still being respectful of the system when it matters.
Best of all, he knows where the “win” is, even when “not guilty” isn’t possible. He won’t send you to trial when he knows it won’t work, and he won’t just roll over and charge you for the same lame deal everyone gets. Mark and his team carefully look at every angle and every opportunity to protect your freedom, keeping you informed and engaged at every step of the way. In my case, that meant helping me avoid expensive restitution fees and probation requirements.
I’ve seen other people go into the system for similar charges with cheaper defense and the difference is night and day. If you want to handle your case with as little impact on your life as possible, Mark Thiessen is the man to call.”
I couldn’t have gone with a better law firm
I have to start off by saying how thankful I am that my case was dismissed. I never thought I would need a criminal lawyer but life happens. Mark kept me informed during the entire process. My case was rescheduled a few times, which was incredibly frustrating, but Mark kept calm. He had a game plan from start to finish. I couldn’t have gone with a better law firm.
Excellent Attorney to Have Represent You
Because of the seriousness of my case (serious for me), I had been researching and meeting with many different lawyers in the area. I felt like my life was unfairly ruined; I even considered pleading guilty just because it seemed the odds were against me. What made me choose Mark was not only his positive reviews and great record, but when I first met him he was confident, honest, straightforward and very knowledgeable. He definitely knows what he’s doing and will fight for you. Mark will not fudge or sugarcoat the situation to you. While some people may take it as not caring, it is exactly was is needed in this type of environment. I appreciated that he was very honest and gave all the details to keep me informed throughout the entire ordeal.
I ended up getting both Mark and Jed Silverman to represent me. It felt like I was getting two of the best lawyers in Texas to represent me; however, it was more like getting them and their entire staff in my corner. The team was very helpful and kept me informed at each court appearance, especially Mark Metzger. The case dragged on for a good while, which was very nerve-racking for me, but in the end it was worth it. At the last court appearance, the prosecutor did not want to let up and seemed it was going to go to trial, but Mark Thiessen was very “persuasive” and worked his magic, and to my surprise got my case dismissed. While I was scared it may have gone to trial, I felt Mark was the best man for the job had it gone down that road.
While his services may not be the cheapest to some, you get what you paid for in this field and Mark seems to be very high in demand. I highly recommend Mark Thiessen, it was worth every penny!
In one word – Fantastic
I am in my late forties and was in a bit of legal trouble for the first time in my life. It is a very stressful time for somebody who is going thru this first time. First the arrest then going through the booking process and finally spending 8-9 hours waiting to be released. Once I got out I started my research on what to do to minimize the impact. My charge was failure to ID to a police officer (a class B misdemeanor – lets just say I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and when an officer showed up i panicked and did not want to give my ID in front of people who were being questioned for possession of drugs.
Anyway i got a few references of lawyers and started going and meeting the lawyers and also doing internet research on them as well as on my pending charge.
Since this was my first offense – i was hopeful that I would qualify for either pretrial intervention program or deferred adjudication with a very slim outside chance of outright dismissal.
From my internet research I was able to gather that Mark was an outstanding lawyer and his reviews were excellent but mostly in the area of DWI.
All the lawyers I met were setting me up for the first two outcomes mentioned above and nobody wanted to entertain the possibility of outright dismissal. When I met Mark I was instantly impressed. He heard my account of the event, got very candid account of the events out of me by making me feel comfortable. He then gave a very detailed idea of what the approach and strategy he was going to employ. He also let me know that there were a few unknowns (the offense report being one) based on which he will tweak his strategy on game day. I was sold and signed up.
On the court day – As per strategy Mark came is very late when all other dockets were done. Being a Friday Mark likes to dress in funky clothes which he calls his fun day clothes. Everybody in the court know this and looks forward to him making an appearance. Having been through a lot of trials most of which he ends up winning he knows all the DA and court staff. He had the best presentation of all the lawyer that I saw in the court ( and I had an opportunity to see them all since Mark came at the end). He is also well respected in the court.
We went over the offense report and Mark immediately decided that he was going to go for an outright dismissal. I was a still not sure if this will work but he went in to talk to the ADA and then DA and convinced them that it was not worth their time to fight this one. I believe that part of this comes from the fact that everybody know Mark’s reputation for being a tough aggressive lawyer not afraid to go to trial for his clients. I was ecstatic at the outcome whereby not only was the charge dismissed but also I would not have to go through probation for a year or more and then having to wait to get my record sealed or expunged. I am now eligible for immediate filing for expungement proceedings which will remove all traces of my arrest and my court date.
Mark was the most expensive of all the lawyers that I talked to but he was worth every penny. When you really need somebody to defend you I recommend you go hire Mark Thiessen. I will keep his contact handy for the rest of my life.
I would HIGHLY recommend hiring Mark Thiessen as your attorney for any criminal case that you have received in the Harris County area. He is extremely knowledgeable of the court system and what actions can be taken pre-trial in order to have the best outcome at your court date. I was put on probation for a DWI a year previous to hiring Mark as my attorney. I failed to complete the requirements in order to get off of probation. My probation was revoked and sent back to the courts. That’s when I hired Mark. He told me to go complete the rest of the requirements for probation and get myself a court date. When we got to court he persuaded the judge not only to dismiss my probation, but dismiss it successfully. In court he made small talk with the judge and prosecutor which told me that he knew them and had a good relationship with them. Which was not the case for other attorneys that went in front of this judge. Again you can’t go wrong hiring Mark. He is great attorney and great person.
