To Whom It May Concern:
It is with pleasure that I recommend Mr. Mark Anchor Albert for his professionalism, understanding and expertise in his field.
Mr. Albert was referred to us after several unsatisfying interviews with other attorneys regarding a complex legal matter we were facing. Mr. Albert was attentive and projected confidence and knowledge in discussing our specific situation and was able to provide direction, assembled his team in short order, and had an action plan for a successful outcome for our company.

My name is Jianming Zhou. I am the President of Jiangsu Dewei Advanced Material Co.,Ltd and US FuelCell. Jiangsu Dewei is a Chinese listed company which made an investment for 55% share of US Fuelcell for $10M in 2017 in the US. The founder and minority share of USFC refused to execute the Board's resolution to turn over US FuelCell's bank account signatory authority to the person the Board appointed, even though he was no longer an employee of US FuelCell. The bank had to file an interpleader and the account was frozen. Mark Albert was recommended by our attorney in Connecticut, and he gave us peace of mind by showing his expertise in the law and his decisiveness in action. Our case was scheduled to trial in almost two years from the date our motion was filed. This was a disaster for us because the company was shut down without access to the money in the bank. Mark filed a summary judgement motion, and we got the ruling more than one half of a year earlier than scheduled. During the money collection process, Mark understood our urgency to have the money, so he and his assistant pushed each department and authority at the Court around the clock to get our money back as soon as possible. We appreciate Mark's great job, not only in his professionalism, but also his understanding of us, who come from China with a different culture, a different language, and having zero experience in doing business in the US. We had great communication and understanding during the case and we are glad to engaged Mark Albert as our lawyer.

I am writing this letter of recommendation for the legal services of Mark Anchor Albert.
I was referred to Mr. Albert by another highly-recommended attorney who felt he did not have the resources to take my case. I had a complex claim involving business law that Mr. Albert helped me with tremendously. While many other attorneys had offered to take it on an hourly fee, Mr. Albert assiduously researched the law (in addition to the considerable knowledge he already had in this specialized area) and likely saved me years of expense and disappointment by finding that my claim, while a legitimate one, would be unlikely to succeed. He devoted a lot of time and passion to exhaust every possibility and gave me his solid opinion which, even though it may not have been what I wanted to hear, I understood and completely trusted. Considering the amount he saved me through his impeccable ethics, his fees were very fair as well.
Mr. Albert is one of the most brilliant attorneys you will find anywhere, but also very personable and compassionate. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing the best of the best.

"My name is David Ortiz. CEO and primary financial advisor for Ortiz Advisors. We are a fiduciary financial advisor. I have been in the financial services business for 31 years. I haven’t had a single complaint filed against me...ever. A few years back I recommended an invest to a handful of my clients. I had done plenty of due diligence on this investment as well as relying on the due diligence of a very reputable and large alternative investment distributor. Unfortunately, due to governmental intervention, multiple lawsuits started being filed against this investment in several states. The company tried to defend themselves in court but eventually it led up to the company shutting down. The result was clients’ income from this investment seized. As a result of that, one of my clients decided to sue me for the failure of this investment. Having never been through anything like this before I was scared. When I got the letter from this client’s attorney, I had no idea what to do. So, I reached out to Mark Albert. I did my due diligence on Mark before I called. I am so glad I called. Thank you, Mark.
What happened next was unbelievable. I retained Mark as my counsel and worked out the communication between me and the client’s counsel. He did a superior job and I knew I was in good hands. I never had to deal with them other than answer discovery questions which Mark also counseled me on. Having Mark on my side gave me and my family great peace of mind. I carry professional liability insurance called E&O (errors and omissions). Mark helped me fill out the paperwork to let them know a claim might be coming. Not only did the company deny my claim they also canceled my insurance. The legal costs of arbitration and possible settlement would have crippled a small family firm like ours. Again, having never been down this road I deferred to Mark. He is a specialist in this field. He is highly knowledgeable and extremely well versed in dealing with these types of situations. Once Mark got involved the insurance company’s tune quickly changed. Not only did they decide to cover the claim they also hired their firm to represent me. In the long run, my insurance kicked in and is covering my ongoing legal fees as well as potential settlement cost in arbitration. Mark also spoke to the insurance company’s counsel for me and he felt I was in good hands and suggested I continue to work with them to save me money. These are the actions of a very ethical person. He could have stayed my counsel and continue to get paid and I would have been okay with that. But he felt the ethical and financially beneficial thing to do was let the insurance company’s counsel take over. He has still been there as counsel and as a friend. I am so grateful to Mark, he’s a Godsend."

"My name is Terry Ciotka and I am the owner of a world renowned fossil company providing dinosaurs and fossils to museums around the world. When I became the subject of a frivolous lawsuit in California I had to find council there. My first e-mail that went out on a Sunday was returned instantly by Mark Albert. Right away this started positively. After retaining Mark and his company we went through the long process of defending my company. Throughout the whole ordeal Mark was a true professional. While the other side was trying to play games, use tricks, lie etc. Mark never stooped to that level. He kept us on the right path the whole time and assured me it was the proper way to go. After a while it was very apparent he was correct. The other side eventually conceded their lawsuit and even wrote me a retraction. I can say with 100% confidence that anyone ever needing a true professional and one heck of an amazing lawyer, should never hesitate to call on Mark. He was there for me every step of the way, night and day and on weekends. He worked tirelessly for me and it was a real relief knowing he had my back.
Throughout this, his expertise and knowledge of everything was truly amazing. I am by no means any expert of the law, but Mark knew exactly what to do every step of the way and how to handle everything they threw at us in a professional manner he even became extremely knowledgeable about fossils and dinosaurs! If you want a lawyer who is a true professional, extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the law but most importantly someone who will go to bat for you because they believe in you and not just for a pay check, Mark is definitely your guy. I am honoured to be able to write a testimonial for this man and will always recommend Mark Albert and Associates to anyone!!"
Sincerely,- Terry, owner

“Highly recommended without a single reservation!
For some people, like myself, even walking into an attorney's office can be intimidating and stressful. Within 15 seconds of meeting Mark I was relaxed by his reassuring, calm integrity. Before much longer I was also impressed by his encyclopedic knowledge – not only in his area of practice but in many other things. His broad experience and points of reference allow him to bring deep perspective on any question or problem you might put to him.
He has a mind like a steel trap and you would have to go a long way before you found yourself a better advocate or counsel. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone seeking legal help.”

"When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on" . . FDR
Yes, I was at my very last breath - standing at the edge of the cliff. At the end of the rope..
My prior attorneys had done many things without my consent, without my knowledge, without notifying me! Setting my case into a bottomless chasm and abyss. These previous substandard and deficient attorneys exhausted all my financial resources (1 million dollars) evaporated, without any results and closure. I had no where to turn until I had the extraordinary good fortune to make contact with Mr. Mark Anchor Albert ESQ. Most attorneys do not want to step in a client's previous legal messes with jumbled problems. (Mark took the ball in the ninth inning to do some relief pitching). Trust me. He stepped into a complicated legal mess. Thank God for his involvement at this crucial confluence of legal issues. He immediately took a very clear pragmatic approach to my issues and did not over complicate things unnecessarily. Under his guidance my opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. It's really nice to hear "Don't worry" and "I got your back"! What attorney says that? It is so reassuring to know Mark Albert is in your corner. Mark stands tall to do intellectual battle at the highest degree of service for his clients. For my case, Mark went above and beyond to ensure a great outcome. I know I was not the most profitable client due to my financial situation, but deep in my heart, I am the most grateful client.
Honesty, Integrity, transparency and partnership - I received this and much more!! I received first class treatment and was treated like family. What more can you ask for? Mark creates a partnership to succeed. He is a real legal magician of the highest order. When necessary, Mark is tough, real tough. I am excited about the future and a long and fruitful partnership.
With admiration and gratitude.
