“I have been going to Mark Armstrong for around 3 years for our home closings and they are the best. Very competitive pricing, extremely helpful and friendly staff. Mark is such a friendly and helpful lawyer. He goes over details and answers questions thoroughly unlike other lawyers who want to quickly get you out. Their staff always accommodates our closings (even with short deadlines) and always makes us feel welcome. This is the third law office we have worked with in past 10 years and now our go-to law firm and favorite. Definitely recommend- the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful and most importantly respond in a very quick manner.— Javiera
