Quality Representation for the Cases That Matter

As your criminal defense and family attorney, Mark Battaglia can represent you in the following areas:
  • Criminal Defense: All violations of State and Federal criminal statutes, including murder, sexual assault, robbery, unlawful use of a weapon (UUW), assault and battery, possession of a controlled substance (PCS), domestic violence, kidnapping, theft, looting, and firearm offenses.
  • Firearm Offenses: Firearm cases draw special attention from prosecutors and judges.  Even possessing a gun for self-defense can land you in prison if you have it illegally.  Mark represents clients charged with unlawful use of a weapon, armed violence, felon in possession of a firearm, and gun trafficking cases.
  • Traffic: Your livelihood is at steak when you get arrested for a traffic violation. Whether you diving for a living and have a commercial drivers license (CDL) or you just drive to and from work, do not face the judge alone. Mark can negotiate the best deal and may avoid you having to come to court.

  • Parentage: When the future of your children’s wellbeing is at stake, trust Mark to guide you through a difficult process to secure your rights as a parent and support for your family.
  • Parenting Time: Children need both their parents in their lives.

Mark is a great guy who is passionate about the work he does. His passion is apparent in the way he treats his clients and in the way he commands the attention of everyone in the courtroom. I hired Mark because I felt as if I wasn’t being treated fairly by the police. It’s not easy to present a case to a jury where you have to shine a negative light on the police. Mark was able to bring me justice and make sure that I did not become a criminal as a result of police misconduct. He is an absolute shark in the courtroom and it was incredible to witness. It took about 3 years to come to a close with my case. In those 3 years, I lost my home, my car, and then the pandemic struck. Throughout the pandemic Mark was able to work with my financial situation, and he never once held it against me. I had lost my car at one point and Mark went out of his way to give me a ride to court. When you hire Mark Battaglia, you’re not just hiring an attorney. You’re making a friend. He will always have a place in my family as our go to man for legal help.
