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.
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.”
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!
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.
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.”
Mark eres mi hombre que luchó por mi libertad y justicia!!!
La desafortunada noche que por causa de un accidente automobilistico, fue detenida, evaluada por un oficial de la policia y luego arrestada bajo cargos erroneos de Manejo en Estado de Ebriedad (DWI) o bajo la influencia de alcohol, fue la peor noche de mi vida.
Al haberte resistido a tomar la prueba de respiratoria evidencial en un fin de semana el cual era digtado como “Sin Derecho a Refutir” dicha prueba, determinó el derecho del estado a una prueba de sangre al ser encarserada. Estos resultados de sangre fueron sumamente altos al ser recibidos, lo cual significaron el problema mas transcendente de mi vida, afectando mi carrera profesional al punto de descenso absoluto, y descalificame como aplicante para recibir mi ciudadania Americana, la cual ya era factible por mi tiempo siendo residente legal de este pais.
Dada la seriedad de mi caso, hize una investigación intensa para contratar un abogado con experiencia extensa en casos de DWI, y con gran fortuna encontré al abogado que salvó mi vida, no sé que hubiese sido de mi sin Mark Thiessen. No solo Mark tomó un caso casi imposible de ganar en una corte tribunal, llevandome de la mano, ofreciendo su apoyo incondicional a cualquier hora del dia o noche, pero tuvo la extraordinaria abilidad y competencia para ganar el caso y salir triunfante!
El jurado me encontró no culpable, gracias a mi angel de la guarda, Mark Thiessen. No tengo palabras para expresar mi agradecimiento y por el constante apoyo y fortaleza que Mark y su equipo legal me ofrecieron durante el agonizante período que tomó mi caso por resolverse.
Puedo garantizar, que bajo la abilidad extraordinaria, experiencia incomparable y destreza de la ley, puedo recomendar a Mark Thiessen con ojos cerrados a cualquiera que se encuentre en una situación desesperada como la que yo tuve que pasar.
Mark, eres mi heroe y siempre te recordaré y recomendaré como el hombre que luchó por mi libertad y justicia!!!
Mis gracias infinitas!
The BEST Attorney in Harris County and Probably One of the Best in the Nation
Mark Thiessen is by far the BEST attorney in Harris County and probably one of the best in the nation. His firm is extremely polite and professional. Mark and his staff were always there for me when I had questions or concerns. He was able to get my DWI dismissed in Harris County which is a huge relief. I would highly recommend Mark for any DWI or drug related case.
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.
It was the best decision I could have made
I’m a lawyer. I made a mistake one night and was arrested for suspicion of DWI. As a lawyer, it’s extremely difficult to trust your case to another lawyer. It’s ingrained in your bones to want to be in control, but you can’t because no matter what you’ve read on the internet or seen on TV, you don’t know that area of law, or the criminal judges, or the prosecutors, and the reality is all of that really matters. You have to find an attorney you can trust to protect your interests. Mark was the first and only lawyer I called to handle my DWI case, and it was the best decision I could have made. He and his team exceeded all of my expectations in getting both my ALR and DWI dismissed. I went to him because of his reputation among lawyers at being the best at what he does, and I wasn’t disappointed.
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.
I recommend Mark Thiessen
Je tiens à apporter ici le témoignage de mon entière satisfaction concernant l’action menée par Maitre Thiessen au cour de l’instruction préalable à mon procès devant la cour criminelle du comté de Harrys.
Je me suis fait arrêté par la police et contrôlé positif à l’éthylomètre au volant. Ceci est considéré comme un crime au Texas. Après avoir passé deux jours en prison j’ai été relâché sous caution et j’ai pris contact avec Maitre Thiessen sur les conseils d’un collègue de travail. Maitre Thiessen était connu de mon collègue après une conférence qu’il avait faite au sein de l’entreprise afin d’exposer et d’expliquer les lois en vigueur au Texas auprès des expatriés. (je n’étais malheureusement pas présent le jour de cette conférence !)
Pendant toute l’instruction, Maitre Thiessen m’a expliquer le déroulement de l’affaire et m’a tenu informé des éléments pouvant être évoqués en ma faveur au cours d’un futur procès ainsi que ceux à charge, présentés par l’accusation. Il a surtout mis en œuvre tous les moyens dont il pouvait disposer afin de contester les preuves présentées par la défense. De plus me trouvant un peu perdu face à l’ampleur que prenait ce procès, qui pour nous français semble démesurée, je tiens à souligner aussi l’importance du support moral que m’a apporté Maitre Thiessen.
Nous sommes allés jusqu’au procès. Le jour du procès l’absence de l’interprète prévus pour m’assister a fait que l’audience a été reportée. Maitre Thiessen a profité de cette opportunité pour présenter au procureur et à ses assistants les derniers éléments de preuve collectés par l’expert qu’il avait employé afin de vérifier les mesures prises à l’aide de l’éthylomètre. Ce relevé montrait des mesures erratiques et montrait que l’appareil avait été mis au rebus quinze jours après mon contrôle . Ces éléments de preuve ont convaincus l’accusation que les charges à mon encontre ne tiendraient pas devant un jury et les poursuites furent abandonnées.
En conclusion, si par malheur vous vous trouvez impliquer dans un procès pour conduite en état d’ivresse, je vous conseille d’avoir le réflexe de contacter Maitre Mark Thiessen pour votre défense !!

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!
