I've been a practicing attorney since 1979. With a background in law, taxation, and business ownership, I am able to approach your case from multiple perspectives and help you determine a smart, cost-effective path forward.
Over the course of my career, I've worked as in-house counsel for both a $3 billion real estate investment trust and a high net-worth individual who ran 35 companies. Now, I'm ready to put my industry knowledge to work for you.
Your situation is unique, so your plan of action should be, too. When you come to me with your business issue, we'll do a cost-benefit analysis of your options so you can ensure your path forward is addressing your specific needs.
During a stressful business law case, you deserve an attorney who can provide you with his full attention. At Mark A. Johnson, P.C., I don't hand off my clients to an assistant or a paralegal. I'll work directly with you every step of the way.
I have known Mark Johnson for over 15 years and I view him as a very professional attorney. Mark is easy to converse with and he is a good listener. He is focused on making a difference and would have the ability to understand the client's wishes and work diligently to achieve the best outcome in any legal situation.
Mark is a fantastic attorney and advocate for his clients. We have worked together on multiple cases, and I am always pleased to refer a client to Mark. His extensive knowledge of business law is a true asset for any client. In our industry, experience matters, and for that reason, Mark is one of the best.
Mark has been my attorney for over 20 years, representing me in litigation, business formations, contract review and drafting, and negotiations, in the many and varied business ventures I have been involved with, in the state of Georgia, as well as other states. I have been extremely satisfied with his efforts and trust him implicitly. As a former court administrator, I know hundreds of lawyers, and based on the opinions of judges and other lawyers, chose Mark. I continue to use Mark and recommend him to anyone who needs legal representation.
Mark was extremely prompt in his response time, even when it meant working with other attorneys and CPAs to gather all the documents needed to complete the work. I knew I'd chosen the right attorney the first time I met with Mark; he set my mind at rest that even though the situation seemed complicated, he would be able to handle the assignment and ensure everything was handled to prevent further dispute. I would definitely recommend him and plan to use him again in the future.
Mark was extremely helpful in getting our home based business off the ground. His knowledge of the legal system in Georgia made the whole process as quick and as painless as it could be. We plan on using him again when we move the home based business into a brick and mortar location.
