  • The BEST Attorney in Harris County!!
    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.

  • If You Want a GREAT Lawyer, Mark Thiessen is Your Man
    I found Mark Thiessen through several of my friends. I was having serious issues with the lawyer I had at the time. He kept telling me I was going to jail when I had done nothing. He did not believe me, and I believe he was gonna have me put in jail and not fight for my innocence. From the moment I met Mark Thiessen, I knew he was going to do everything for me to keep me from that horrid jail. I was not allowed to leave my county. He drove all the way up to The Woodlands to meet me at Starbucks to speak on my case. He got all the charges against me dropped within minutes. He’s truly the best lawyer. He has a lot of respect from his peers including the judge that actually told me I was very lucky to have such a great lawyer. And trust me, I know I was lucky to have found him, and that is the honest truth. If you want a GREAT lawyer, Mark Thiessen is your man.

  • The Best Lawyer in the Industry
    I chose Mark Thiessen to represent me in a DUI / DWI case and it was the best selection/decision that I could have made. I found out about Mark through an Internet search and reached out to him and his office. Upon meeting with Mark – I immediately knew that he was the right lawyer/attorney to represent me and give me the best opportunity to win my case. Mark is an expert attorney with a work ethic that is second to none. He is always available. He is a master of his craft and will give you the best opportunity to win your case. He will be prepared and he will do everything to ensure your case is won. He will actually be more knowledgeable on the aspects of law, facts of the case, than the individuals that have accused you of your offense. He was highly successful in my case, even despite some of the alleged facts not being in my favor. We won the case and all charges were dropped. Thanks, Mark!

  • 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 a 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!

  • Fantastic Lawyer!
    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 to 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 a great attorney and a great person.

  • 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 out 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 an 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!

  • 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.

  • You Cannot Compare Anybody with Mr.Mark!

    I was accused by my own wife. It was a painful incident happened in my life. She said to the police that I was threatening to kill her and beat her. She did this to be because she was looking for a lot of money from me and I couldn’t give her the money. She was so bad that she even made proofs with the doctors. There was a witness from doctors and nurses and even some voice recordings. She allowed the doctors and nurses even to record our loud conversions. There were a lot of accusations on me and the case was very strong. But in front of Mark nothing can stand.

    I had just two resets and the time. The first one was just a day adjustment and the next one was just 2 weeks. On the second reset, I went to the court and heard shocking news. My wife again called the court and said that I was threatening her again. This created huge complications. Because of this, they gave the reset after 4 months. I am a frequent traveler to other countries and I was worried. On the very same day, Mark comforted me with his words. He said ‘just keep quiet and wait for 10 days, I will get this dismissed’. I really believed him because he says and does what will really happen. It was just seven days later I heard from Mark that he has my dismissal in hand and no convictions. It was a big surprise that he did it in a lightning speed. With all my heart I thank you, Mark.

    You cannot compare anybody with Mr.Mark. The way he handled the case was really great. He knows the tricks, tact tics and he is really great in his profession. I suggest when you are in a real problem you definitely need Mark with you.

    Respectfully,
    A loyal client

  • 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!

  • When you really need somebody to defend you I recommend you go hire Mark Thiessen.

    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 a failure to ID to a police officer (a class B misdemeanor – let's 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 from 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 a very candid account of the facts 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 knows 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 knows 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 to have 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 hire Mark Thiessen. I will keep his contact handy for the rest of my life.
