Highly Recommended

I hired Mr. Watkins to handle a case for my teenage son. I worried about the outcome, but there was no need. My son was given a fine, community service and no probation. Never saw the inside of a courtroom. Mr. Watkins was informative, helpful, very knowledgeable and affordable. I highly recommend his services and would use him in the future should I have any further legal needs.

Warrant Application

I cannot give enough thanks to Attorney Watkins. This was the second time in a short period in which I had adversity staring me in the face, but also the second time I walked away without any charges or accusations being held against me, and I owe it all to the LORD and the professional work ethic of Mr. Watkins. Communication was superb, I would ask myself why he was calling so much, but he kept me informed of every step that he was taking to rectify my issue. I pray that no one ever needs an attorney, but if you do, MARC WATKINS is highly recommended by me.

Visitation Modification Hearing

My experience with Marc from start to finish was excellent. Marc helped me out tremendously in a nasty visitation modification hearing. Marc was meticulous with how he approached the hearing and well organized throughout the entire process. Marc mediated between both parties until a logical, realistic resolution was agreed upon. If I were to ever need another Attorney I would not think twice about consulting and hiring Marc.

I recently hired Mr. Watkins as my defense attorney, in which the case he handled for me , all charges against me were dismissed. In our initial consultation, Mr. Watkins asked me how I wished to proceed with my case and my reply to him, this is some crap and that I hoped to get all charges dismissed, and that’s exactly what he did. As myself and Mr. Watkins were wrapping things up, he then explained to me that I need to get my record expunged. I waited a few weeks before calling Mr. Watkins to proceed with this process. I attempted to handle the process myself, but the State had changed the process of how Expungements are handled ,so I explained to Mr. Watkins what was going on, but he assured me that I could handle this myself. Long story short, Mr. Watkins handled this process for me in two days, without me haven to be present. I suggest to anyone who is look for an attorney who exhibits nothing but the highest level of professionalism , who will with your best interest at heart, who gets straight to the point, communicates and keeps you aware, Marc Watkins is the go to guy.
