    Client Reviews

    I found Mark over the internet looking for a real estate attorney in Tucson to represent me in a possible business traction. Not to denigrate the legal profession, but it is very rare to find an attorney with the combination of real estate knowledge, business acumen and legal transactional skills. Mark’s work was very timely and his fees were reasonable. I especially appreciate his honesty if he didn’t have specific knowledge of a aspect of the law and recommending external expertise. I have gotten to know Mark on a personal level and truly admire his work ethics and values. I can strong recommend Mark Heckele. I am available if a prospective client would like to discuss my positive experience with Mark.

    I would recommend this attorney he was the ONLY attorney in Tucson that would handle my complicated case when I lived in Pennsylvania. His communication was excellent and fought hard for me and won! If anyone is looking for an attorney he is the one! I would hire him in a heart beat if needed an attorney he went that extra mile to make sure I won my case and I did!! and did not over charge me. AAAAA++++++
