    Mark was very helpful and professional when we consulted with him about a non-paying tenant. He helped us navigate this very complicated matter well legally, and was able to negotiate on our behalf so we received some payment for some back rent owed instead of nothing. He listened to us and managed the tenant firmly the way we wanted. We highly recommend The Law Offices of Mark McGowan.

    We needed advice quickly regarding a potential settlement on a rescission of our property. We called him two days before Xmas and he came into the office the morning of Xmas eve just to meet our timeline. He is smart, thoughtful and incredibly accommodating.

    We hired Mark McGowan to help out with a vacation rental issue, as we were unfamiliar with the laws in California. Mark was very professional, He provided expert legal guidance, communicated effectively throughout the process, and ultimately delivered a successful outcome. We would hire him again. He’s an excellent lawyer!
