We have used the Poniatowski Leding Parikh Law Firm and have known Mark Poniatowski for over 20 years; we are extremely pleased with the legal advice we have received over those years. The staff is professional, easy to work with and dedicated in protecting our interests. Many of the issues we have asked assistance for are outside “credit/collection/recovery law” and the results have been just as successful. Without the help of Mark and his staff, we know that we would not have had the successful outcomes we have had. We certainly appreciate the knowledge and support received through this law firm.
For the second year running, our partner Mark D. Poniatowski has been recognized by SuperLawyers for his strong reputation in the Bay Area legal community as a Creditor/Debtor Rights lawyer.

We represented a judgment lien creditor that sought priority of its attachment/judgment lien against the holder of a senior deed of trust in an interpleader action. This was to determine which party was entitled to nearly $300,000 in surplus funds after a trustee’s sale of commercial real property in Hayward, CA.

“Mark, was more than thorough in his handling of our case. He went way outside the box by reviewing other defendants that might be culpable and it worked.”

“Fantastic firm with very high quality lawyers. They don’t over bill or over work a case or matter. They’ll take the time needed to understand issues and make sure you understand the issues and what needs to be done, and they have a lot of experience in a number of areas of law including real estate, litigation, debtor creditor law, contracts. They’ve drafted various documents for me and supported a dispute (didn’t get to litigation) all with an eye toward practical resolution and no churning of their bill. Can’t say enough about them. Most of my experience is with Mark Poniatowski, but all of their lawyers are very good. They do a lot of work with individuals as well as small and some big companies. I know some of their other clients, and the feedback I received was great.”

“I hired him to take over the CEO’s position when closing down a business due to an eminent domain case. He was familiar with the company, and had taken care of a previous problem. He did what needed to be done, had excellent relations with employees, was careful to keep everything legal, only spent the necessary time required, and charges were fair. We couldn’t have chosen a better person for the job.”
