  • The entire firm made my experience wonderful!
    I spoke with Mark for my initial consultation. He called me within 20 minutes of having scheduled a consultation with his office for the next day. He was very knowledgeable and already had a plan of action for my particular situation. My case was assigned to Elizabeth Barr who was absolutely fantastic! She was very patient and kind with me. She took the time to walk me through the process step by step and was very responsive whenever I had last minute questions both via email and phone. I could not be any more ecstatic with the outcome of my case. She has truly been a blessing! The entire firm made my experience wonderful! I will definitely recommend them to anyone and everyone I know needing assistance.

Look forward to the conclusions on my situation and have nothing but an optimistic outlook from here.

    Desiree was amazing! She may be young but don't let it fool you! She was so efficient with everything! Communicated with me every step of the way and took all the difficulty out of the process! I will be using her the next time and anytime I find myself in a pickle!

    - Stefanie

  • I was more than satisfied with the work she had done to date. She was very pleasant and a delight to work with and if I ever need her services again for any family law matters, I will definitely call upon Desiree in a pinch!

    I originally consulted with Desiree and she answered all my many questions and she was very knowledgeable. My divorce was going to be somewhat complicated, but Desiree provided me with very good explanations and she simplified matters. At the time I requested a consultation she immediately got back to me the same day and scheduled the consultation for the next day! And once I hired her, immediately after consulting with her, she was working my case the very next day!! Although I did reconcile with my husband shortly thereafter and no longer needed her services, I was more than satisfied with the work she had done to date. She was very pleasant and a delight to work with and if I ever need her services again for any family law matters, I will definitely call upon Desiree in a pinch! And I will definitely refer my friends and family to her for any of their legal needs. If you want a lawyer who is knowledgeable, efficient, patient and understanding, then I definitely recommend you contact Desiree. And just because she doesn't have a considerable number of years of experience yet, don't let that turn you off. In fact, she is very smart and she has no problem in letting you know if she doesn't know the answer, she will find out the answer and get back to you quickly... without charging you for her "research"! And with my complicated divorce case and all the multitude of questions I had for her, she only needed to consult with her senior attorney on one matter to confirm her position. And it turned out she was right on target, to begin with. If I had needed to pursue my divorce, I would have had no problem in putting all my trust into Desiree to see me through to the end as I felt complete confidence in her.

  • They understand parental alienation and narcissism if you are looking for someone to help you in those areas.
    We worked with both Mark and Elizabeth Barr on our custody modification case. Both did a great job and they got results that were in the best interest of the child involved. I do also want to put out there that they understand parental alienation and narcissism if you are looking for someone to help you in those areas.

    - Jennifer C.

  • This is what they do.
    I had an out of state no-contest divorce. In this day and age, the divorce was a little different. It was no contact. For my divorce it was simple, just pay the money and let them handle it. If you call it costs. If you email it costs. If you ask a lot of questions it costs. They are lawyers. This is their business. This is what they do. Let them do it. They let me contact her and email her the paperwork to save money. It was great!

  • From the beginning, the Law Offices Of Mark M. Childress has taken care of me and adjusted to meet my needs.
    With all the emotions of a custody case, the last thing I needed was problems or concerns with my own attorney. I was disgruntled from past experiences and hesitant but took a chance and couldn't be happier with the decision. From the beginning, the Law Offices Of Mark M.

From financials, being responsive, fighting for what I feel is right, and shooting me straight so I had no false expectations, this Law Office and its staff have been there for me.

  • He made the process so easy!

    Mark was awesome. My wife and I wanted her to adopt my two children and Mark handled everything! He made the process so easy, all we did was meet with him one time to talk about what we wanted and he took it from there. The next time we saw him was at the court to get our adoption papers signed by the judge! Thank you Mark!

  • This guy is amazing. In a matter of minutes, he accomplished what no other attorney could in 6 years.

    This guy is amazing. In a matter of minutes, he accomplished what no other attorney could in 6 years. He had my case figured out in 1short conversation and had what he called "a convoluted mess" fixed. I'm pretty sure my ex felt like he'd been hit by a bus. My family is finally in tact and everyone is finally happy.

  • I’m thankful to have had such great representation. Was always quick to respond and kept me informed on everything.

    Responsive, honest, upfront. These are the things I think of when I’m asked to describe Mark. You want to know the facts of your case and hear the truth? This attorney will not lie to you and tell you what you want to hear even if it means you’ll be mad. I’m thankful to have had such great representation. Was always quick to respond and kept me informed on everything.

    - David H.

  • I highly recommend him and his staff. They are courteous, prompt and they care.

    I called in inquiring about a divorce and how it all happens. I had 2 people call me back within an hour and in an hour maybe 2 I was talking with the lawyer. I highly recommend him and his staff. They are courteous, prompt and they care. Divorce is the hardest thing we will go through minus losing a kid and his team will be retained. He even called me back himself the next day to see how I was. Great service.

    - Bobby N.

  • Mark was always honest and upfront with us about what expect.

    Mark is a great family law attorney. He knows his way around family court. He has helped us a couple of times. Even after we retained another attorney that did nothing but bill us thousands of dollars and got nothing done. Mark was always honest and upfront with us about what expect. If you need an attorney for family law Mark Childress is the right man for the job.

    - Kevin C.

  • He made what could be overwhelming as straight forward as possible.

    Mark was as efficient and supportive as I could ask for in an attorney through my divorce. He made what could be overwhelming as straight forward as possible. Mark responded swiftly and no question or concern went unaddressed. His knowledge and expertise allowed me to get the exact result I needed from mediation. From the first phone call to the end result I have had every confidence in his ability to represent me and the resolution of my case validates that. Thank you!

  • Wow is all I can say! Mark settled a 17-year-old case that I had paid thousands of dollars to other Attorneys to do. He did it in 3 days for a fraction of the cost.

    Wow is all I can say! Mark settled a 17-year-old case that I had paid thousands of dollars to other Attorneys to do. He did it in 3 days for a fraction of the cost of what other Attorneys spent 6 Months and promised to do. I would highly recommend his services and use him again in the future should the need arise. He was efficient, quick to respond to my calls and e-mails and attentive to my needs.

    - Stevan R.

  • He certainly takes care of you and this is one attorney who actually cares. I see why you are among the best!

    Wow! This guy is a super dedicated and compassionate attorney. He understood what I was going through. Not only did he help tremendously with my case but I ended up with a job I so desperately needed! I walked into court feeling defeated and nervous; unemployed and worried about child support. Mark helped. Mark also did something I never thought he would do. He took off his professional hat and put on his personal hat, making some calls. I was hired later that day. Thank you Mark! Please PLEASE call this guy for help when needed. He certainly takes care of you and this is one attorney who actually cares. I see why you are among the best! All the best and many thanks!

  • He is very reasonable and he got the job done. He is very honest and up front about everything.

    We got custody of our twin great-grandsons when they were 8 months old. Been trying to adopt for over 3 years but was so expensive. They turned 4 in January and we found Mark Childress. He is very reasonable and he got the job done. He is very honest and up front about everything. These boys are no longer our grandsons, they are our Sons. I would highly recommend Mark Childress to everyone. I will defiantly use him again if I ever need to. Thank You, Mr. Childress.

    Creative and punctual on child custody cases. Mr. Childress took the time to understand the details of these matters and identified several avenues to explore in efforts to get custody of my girls. Very fair and honest with high standards fueled by integrity and dedication. After a few short weeks, the custody suit was won, and much appreciated. More than pleased with this attorney!
