Mark did a great job representing my family and me through a very tough case and was very helpful in getting a great result and making sure that everything was taken care of. He was very efficient and tactful and always seemed like he knew what he was doing!!! I would highly recommend him to anyone who had a difficult case who needed some good help and representation.
Finding yourself on the wrong side of the law is positively terrifying–the arrest, the handcuffs, the mugshot, the fingerprints, the 5-hour lockup, the formal charges . . . need I say more? Every step is excruciating. Your life is upside down, and it is phenomenally challenging to think clearly.
At this juncture you need the best Criminal Defense Attorney available, one who is equally adept at providing a defense as well as an offense. Mark Cogan does both, and he does so vigorously, aggressively and methodically. Mark understands and maintains the proper balance of defense and offense with a laser focus. If you think this sounds important, you are completely accurate. It is so critically important, in fact, that it is the difference between success and failure.
I cannot recommend Mark Cogan more highly.
Mr. Cogan obtained for me, an Expungement of my criminal record.
The research required, far exceeded his expectation. Yet the service was completed for the compensation agreed upon at the outset.
I am Very Grateful for the efforts he made on my behalf.
If there were a category for, Most Excellent! I would have marked it.
Saved By Mark
Mark took a real interest in both me and my case. He made a profound difference in my future, and I would not hesitate to recommened him to anyone who might need his services! Thanks Mark!
Ms. 5.0 Stars
Mr. Cogan assisted my son to expunge his felony criminal records. My son was barely 18 when he committed these offenses. He learned a very hard lesson as a result of his actions. Mr. Cogan successfully defended him to get his records expunged. He responded to my questions and concerns even during weekends and during his vacation. His dedication to serving and defending his clients are extraordinary. Now my son can move on with his life after 10 years of suffering from a criminal records. He has a good job with Apple Computers and is able to contribute his skills and talents to society. Thank you, Mark. We are grateful to your services and would highly recommend you to our friends and family members who might need your assistance and support.
Absolutely The Best!
I went back to my rating and made one change. Originally I only gave him 4/5 on responsiveness only for the purpose of trying to not give a reader the impression that I was just “gaming the system” by giving all high marks, but then I thought to myself that I could not under rate him on his responsiveness. Not only was he always available but I can not think of a single time that I could not get a hold of him or get documentation in an untimely manner. I mean it when I say I can sleep easier at night knowing that someone like Mr. Cogan is out there protecting our legal system from abuse.
Excellent Attorney to Refer Your Clients To
I have both referred people to Mark who have always been very happy with his work and I have twice personally hired Mark to assist family members with legal matters. Highly recommended.
Our positive Review of Attorney Mark C. Cogan
A family member found himself in jail facing very serious charges and potentially an extremely long prison sentence. I researched many attorneys in the Northwest, gaining information from an attorney peer review website. I discovered that attorney Mark C. Cogan of Portland Oregon, had been involved in some really high profile cases and had been very successful in acheiving remarkably positive outcomes for his clients. We found him to be warm,frank, knowledgeable, easy to talk to and understand, and very patient with us during our consultation. We highly recommend Mr. Cogan to anyone finding themselves in need of legal representation.
He wasnt the typical stero type lawyer. I thought he was pretty down to earth and easy to talk to. He was very good at keeping me informed. He was very easy to work with. He did a good job listening and following my requests, even if he didn’t agree with some of them.
He put everthing he had into my case too.
When i retained Mr Cogans services i had never before needed a criminal attorney. I was truthfully scared; knowing little of the system except that my particular case would be difficult & the out come unsure at best. Mark was swift to respond to my initial call & schedule an interview. He inspired confidence with his knowledge of the system & was quick to get started. I found Mark to be open in communication, confident with advise, & reassuringly friendly yet honest. Mark came well recommended by his contemporaries. He worked diligently to make sure i was able to attain the best verdicts possible given my situation.
It is my firm belief that if i had not retained Mr. Cogan’s services, the outcome of my cases would not have been as positive they are.
