Mark Worked a Miracle

I wanted to take this time to thank Mark Anthony and Marlea for all the help they provided. I want others to know our success story. We have an on-going out of state custody battle for my husband’s son. We had a foreign order that many attorneys in Colorado Springs and Denver told us to give up on. We also got stood up the day of court by another attorney. We were losing hope and all the odds were against us! And then we found Mark Anthony Law! It was tough and at times very trying but Mark Anthony did it! He succeeded where others had failed or simply did not want to try because the case looked too difficult. He worked with my husband and I even when my husband was away for military training. Mark Anthony made sure everything was filed and we were notified of everything in a timely manner. I highly recommend Mark Anthony to anyone. Mark Anthony made the impossible possible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Front of the Pack

I was referred to Mark Anthony Law from a friend who was a previous client of Mark’s. My first impression of Mark is that he is very professional and top notch. I received clear guidance and excellent service from him and his office. Their responses to my questions and concerns were swift and prompt. For a divorce, and having gone through three prior divorces, without question, Mark stands out very far first from the pack. I would absolutely refer anyone to Mark Anthony Law.

Difficult Case

I’m grateful to have had Mark Anthony Law as my legal sword and shield throughout my high conflict divorce case. He strategically fought for and secured permanent protection for me and my children. We are close to the end and I am confident that I will receive my marital portion of assets, something that would not have been possible without Mark’s expertise! I highly recommend Mark Anthony Law to all who need representation for difficult family cases.

Lien Issues

Mark Anthony Law was chosen to help us remove an unfairly placed lien on our home. Mark very thoroughly covered all of the options with us during our initial meeting, and kept us fully informed during the entire process. His assistant Marlea also supplied us with information and assistance as we needed it. Although no one ever enjoys legal wrangling, we were very satisfied with our results, and we would turn to Mark again should the need arise.

Best of the Best

I was referred to Mr. Anthony a few months ago when my attorney at the time failed to fully help me out. I read and heard many good things about him online and from other people that my wife had told me about. From the moment I had gone to his office and left, I knew I was getting the best legal consultation I could get. I’m in the military and sometimes communication is a challenge for me, but during all of this, his law office still continued reaching out through email and contacting my wife when I was unable to communicate.

We WON

I would first like to say Mark Anthony from Mark Anthony Law is the best attorney. I had been battling a serious case and came to Mark. I had called over a hundred attorneys from Denver, Castle Rock, Colorado Springs & Pueblo and none of them were a good fit. Then I found Mark Anthony and my prayers were answered. His knowledge of the law is absolutely amazing. I had been going threw a horrible time in dealing with this, and Mark fought for me. So I didn’t have to anymore. Seeing him in this complex trial and seeing how completely experienced he was in dealing with this situation was comforting, knowing I hired the best and perfect attorney. He was successful and WE WON! He is absolutely amazing!

Specialized Knowledge

Mark Anthony Law is the most professional and experienced. Mark Anthony defended me in a case that required specialize knowledge . The fact that Mark was so confident and knowledgeable in taking my case gave me so much comfort. I finally had someone who fought for me with the truth and knowledge of the law. We were successful in trial and I am forever grateful. I would see Mark Anthony Law in a heart beat for any legal matter in the future.

Reasonably priced, very knowledgeable

Mark represented me in a child support case. Mr. Barrionuevo was very well prepared for the hearing and he took the time to personally see that I was as well. Having dealt with the court system on more than one occasion, the peace of mind that comes from having competent representation is priceless. Throughout the entire process, both Mark and Marlea were very reassuring which really eased my stress level. I was very impressed. In my opinion, if you need an attorney, Mark Barrionuevo is the only choice. I am extremely grateful and am very satisfied with the outcome of my case. Reasonably priced, very knowledgeable.

Fortune Favors the Prepared

Mark did a spectacular job of representing our company recently. His attention to detail, understanding of the rule of law and solid game plan left us much more prepared than opposing counsel which eventually led them to drop the lawsuit against us. I can’t thank Mark enough for his help in this matter!

Mark is a God send!!!

Let me start by saying that Mark was, and is a God send!!!!! My family has been through so much; especially our young children. Without hesitation or trepidation, Mark took on our case to help protect our children. We have 4 children; two of them being a 4 year old and 5 year old that were involved in some traumatic and life threatening situations that we could NOT get the courts to see and help us with.  Until Mark helped us, we felt hopeless; like there was no end to our fight to protect our family.  Everything we have invested; time, stress, money etc was well worth it to ask Mark for help!!!  Without him, we would still be fighting a long and stressful battle!!  Now our kids are out of harm’s way, have a healthy household and are enjoying life!!  Thank you so so so much!!!!

Hardest Year of My Life

I was referred to Mark Anthony Law by a friend who was in a similar situation. Mark and Marlea helped me through one of the most difficult years of my life. Mark is very knowledgeable in Family Law and I know that I could not have made it through my case without him. I am grateful to know you and would not hesitate to recommend Mark Anthony Law in my situation.

A Confident Attorney

I heard about Mark Anthony Law through an internet search my friend helped me out with. Having never been in a court house or dealing with an attorney otherwise, my initial impression was wonderful, Mark was extremely at ease and confident. My experience with Mark Anthony Law was wonderful. With the confidence that Mark showed day one and the communication that he provided, I knew I was in safe hands through the whole case, the outcome was the best it could be thanks to Mark. I would recommend this Law Office to anyone that is in my shoes.

Amazing Talent

Mark has such an amazing talent. He worked for over a year and a half on our extremely difficult and complicated child custody case. Mark paid attention to the smallest detail and made sure it was heard. Mark even took things a step further and got some of our attorney fees paid back. There were so many times I would literally be freaking out and Mark always made to to reassure me that he was on top of it and doing everything in his power to make sure my voice was heard. Trust Mark, he knows what he is doing.

Mark is my Back Bone

Mark has been very helpful in my case with my daughter. Trying to trust someone these days is very hard, especially with your kids. Mark is VERY organized in court, on top of his work. While in the court I’m a mess, Mark was very much so my back bone. My court continues on, but I am very satisfied in hiring Mark for my case and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

A Valuable Asset to the Legal Community

I cannot emphasize enough what an exceptional attorney and human being Mark Anthony Barrionuevo is. I have had the pleasure of having Mark Anthony as my legal counsel. His professionalism is remarkable along with his compassion for his clients and all persons/animals involved. He is a sharp strategist, detailed, powerful, concise, efficient, tenacious, timely, direct, knowledgeable, astute, flexible, has integrity, is grounded, personable, respectful…I could go on and on.

Mark Anthony has incredible adaptability; he displays a genuine concern and dedication for his clients and their situations. He is extremely knowledgeable, easily accessible and approachable. He makes sure he addresses all clients’ concerns.

He has a great attention to detail. By his focused efforts and in going above and beyond, Mark Anthony was able to produce significant components to my case with little to start with. He has an uncanny ability to engage with people at their level of legal understanding. He is unfailingly cheerful, upbeat, and positive. His professionalism, knowledge, expertise, dedication, relentless perseverance, patience, connection and consistent work ethic were critical to me/my case and aided immeasurably to ensure our success.

I will attest Mark Anthony is an outstanding person who I am very pleased to have worked with and have come to consider a friend. I have no doubts Mark Anthony Barrionuevo (and his paralegal Marlea) is a valuable asset to the legal community. I highly recommend Mark Anthony Law if you are in need of legal assistance.

Bull Dog Attorney

Mark was a tremendous help to us. After the forest fire, the insurance company was giving us a run around. Mark reminded us of a bull dog who doesn’t let go until the job is done. He collected the full amount for what we were insured for. This helped us to get our lives back on track. The cost he charged was very reasonable. We appreciate him very much. Could not have asked for a better attorney.

Strong and Trustworthy Lawyer

Unfortunately, I have had to hire five lawyers in my life so far, and Mark Anthony is by far one of the most honest and fair lawyer that I have come across. He and his paralegal assistant are very thorough in analyzing evidence. In the future, I will most definitely refer him to all my friends and family who may ever be in need of a strong and trustworthy lawyer.

Top of My List

Mark Anthony is the only Attorney I will ever use. He is at the top of my list. I would not hesitate to refer him to anyone that I know. Mark is an expert in his field.

My First Call

Mark Anthony will be my first call if I ever need legal advice or counsel. I would not hesitate to refer him to any of my friends or family members.

Honesty, Integrity, and Professionalism

Mark Anthony Barrionuevo has represented me in a very intense and complex trial, and I can’t say enough about him. He did his homework, and there was a lot of it as this was a very complex case to say the least.

I would recommend him for ANY type of legal help anyone might need in their lives as I have never had an attorney spend so much time and effort in helping me make the correct and logical decisions on my case. He was excellent in presenting me different ideas and thought processes that did essentially affect my case.

Mark Anthony was on top of all arguments, citing the case law in such a way that the courts actually engaged with him in thoughtful discussions that were looked upon respectfully. Even myself, with little or no courtroom experience, actually could follow his common sense approach to law.

I now have a true friend and an attorney that I can count on as he is without a doubt one of the most honest and respectful persons I have ever met and I look forward to knowing he is out there if I ever need any type of legal advice or help in the future.

Respectfully

Best by far

Mark was the most excellent attorney I have ever delt with. He listened to my concerns and knew what was important to me and my family. He paid attention to detail and knew the law inside and out. I felt as if he worked night and day on my case and always assured me he was on top of my case. He made me feel as if I was his only client. He remained professional even at the hard times. His compassion for my family was as if he himself was fighting for a family member. He would answer my calls and emails day and night. When we won our case he celebrated with us as if we won the lottery together. His passion and knowledge for the law is outstanding. He knows and uses different angles because of his knowledge for the law. He was honest and never used dirty tactics just to win. I never felt like a client to Mark….but more like a family member.

Extraordinary Intellectual Abilities

Mark is excellent in client relations. He stays positive and remarkably supportive in the difficult moments. He extensively researched several complex cases for me and remembered important details to win my case. I’m impressed with his ability to recall specifics and determine clever solutions with the opposing counsel. I wish him continued success and thank him for reuniting my family by bringing home my baby girl. Words cannot describe what he has done for me.

Honest, Compassionate , Pro Family Attorney

I consulted with Mark after viewing the web site videos of his educational and professional background, as well as reading his reviews and seeing his rating of 7.2 . I was served with a summons of Legal Separation in Denver, Colorado as I was leaving on a visit to Texas. An attorney in Texas checked out Mark’s educational background and ratings on the Colorado Bar web site and recommended Mark to me. Mark contacted me soon after I submitted my information online and consulted with me for a good hour by phone from Texas, concerning my situation. I explained to him that my marriage to my wife should be approached with reconciliation as the primary goal. I did not want a Legal Separation in Colorado as it is a divorce designed to skirt around my religious beliefs. Mark represented me with respect for my wishes and respect for the importance I placed on my marriage.

Mark was very honest in his advice to me in my case as he represented me, and honestly listened to my concerns as well as caring. His financial terms were very straight forward , agreeable, easy to understand and he e-mailed at the end of every week so I was always up to date on the balance of my account. Mark will place your interests before the all mighty dollar many attorneys typically seek. Mark is an honest, compassionate, pro marriage/family attorney with a family he himself places a very high value on. My wife even approves of his style , as we both gave him a 10 rating.

Our Legal Separation is now in STAY mode for six months as we have entered into an agreement of joint counseling, reconciliation and are once again enjoying each others company and sharing our love for one another.
Thank You Mark Barrionuevo

Excellent Combination of Expertise and Empathy

I hired Mark Anthony to help me with a messy and complicated case in Colorado. From the beginning he treated me like a human and not a customer.

Mark Anthony has excellent communication skills, responds promptly and kept me up to date on the proceedings. In the court room he championed for me with a spectacular outcome.

I can honestly say that Mark Anthony’s combination of expertise and empathy are rare.

Amazing!!!

Mark was amazing!!!!! I would give 10 stars if I could. He did an amazing job on my domestic case! I will say he was very fair and focused on what was important to me as a client. He gave me great advice and did what was best at every moment to get our end goals achieved. He was great!!!!

Excellent attorney

I hired mark for my case. He did a spectacular job. He helped me with custody.

Superior Service

Mark was a wonderful attorney. He was kind and compassionate during meetings with me, but then tenacious when it came negotiations. He guided me through a difficult process very patiently.

Fair, honest, knowledgeable, and kind

I have known Mark Anthony Barrionuevo for several years and have always been impressed with the way that he approaches both his craft and life in general.

I have consulted with Mark on various issues over the years when faced with decisions that could have a legal impact and he has always steered me in the right direction. Mark really understands the law and the impact that legal issues have on the lives of people. I find it a wonderful trait in a lawyer who is more interested in seeing “the right” done than jumping into a case for his own benefit at the expense of those involved.

I have referred several people to Mark Barrionuevo and will continue to do so when the situation arises because I trust Mark to use his professional and personal skills for the benefit of all of his clients.

Best Attorney I’ve Ever Worked With!!

Due to an irresponsible, nasty ex-husband, I have had to deal with the judicial system for the last 7 years. When I would contact an attorney to see if they would represent me, I was told “no” over and over again, due to the complicated, unethical things my ex-spouse had done. Until I met Mark. Not only did he take my very difficult case on, but we never lost once during the multiple times we took my ex to court. Not only have I been awarded back maintenance but ALL ATTORNEY FEES, over and over again. Besides being an excellent and professional attorney, Mark is also a caring counselor and friend. He is definitely THE BEST out there!!

Excellent lawyer

Mark was great to work with. He kept me informed and made sure I had no stress over the matters. He worked hard to get us what we deserved.

Professional and efficient

Mark is a professional, efficient Lawyer. He has responded quickly to my questions, and always lets me know what my options are, before letting me make the decision of what to do next.

I Trust and Respect Mark Anthony Barrionuevo

I find Mark as one of the most professional, honest, and respectful people I know. It’s clear that he cares about people and takes the time to do what’s right.

He Is A Gem

I spent weeks interviewing attorneys on the phone and in person, for a post divorce issue. My ex was taking me to court again and this time I was determined to find an attorney who understood the machinations of a covert, passive aggressive, narcissist.

Imagine my delight when I learned that Mark Anthony was a family therapist before attending law school. He was the only attorney I spoke with who even knew what an NPD was.

Mark is astute, personable, grounded and honest. He blew me away with his representation and closing arguments. He had my back and fully understood the intricacies of my case. He is a gem and I highly recommend him to anyone.

Very Impressed

I hired Mark to deal with my divorce, including protection orders, false claims that had been made against me, child custody issues….there was a lot going on and I was lost trying to deal with it all. Mark is good at his job, he knows the law well and he used it to defend me and help me overcome all the obstacles coming at me. He is professional and he saw through the lies and manipulation that my ex was using to try and bury me. He prepared me for what was coming up in court which calmed my nerves about the whole thing. I put my trust in him…hoping he would help me to not only finalize divorce but make sure my kids would be safe, and he did just that. I would recommend him to anyone going through divorce for sure.

Mark is a sharp strategist

His responsiveness, knowledge, and authenticity during a slightly more complex divorce case kept me feeling supported. He made a difficult situation much easier to deal with, for that, I am grateful.
Mark is a sharp strategist and truly cares for his clients. His ability to thoroughly investigate various avenues and focus on detail was impressive. All issues were handled professionally and timely. He was quick to respond to questions and concerns and kept me informed every step of the way. In court, Mark was direct, powerful, and concise. It was evident that he spent countless hours preparing and covering all bases.

I truly appreciated Mark’s integrity in handling my case. I’m more than pleased with the outcome and would not hesitate to recommend Mark.

Distinguishable from other Colorado law firms


When a friend and business associate entrusts you with their request to write a letter of recommendation for them, it can put you in an awkward position: as their friend, you want to help them succeed, but as their client in an attorney-client business relationship for years, you know first-hand what a skilled, efficient litigator they are and self-preservation tells you to keep this ‘weapon’ all by yourself because you too, are a competitor, and always want the win.

The dictionary defines a “weapon’ as (a) any device for use in attack in combat, and (b) anything used against an opponent or adversary and (c) examples: sword, rifle and cannon. Just as these weapons are multifaceted, so are the traits of Mark Barrionuevo. The three traits discussed below distinguish Mark’s litigation skills from my previous law firm’s and exemplify why I am tempted to keep his legal skills for my own use.

1) STRATEGIC: essential for victory. All the high- stakes level ($3,000,000 exposure) this is winner-takes-all. Planning, precision and execution are not “a” way to win, but the “only” way. Many “seasoned” lawyers are inexplicably blind to “strategizing”, but not Mark Barrionuevo.

2) THRIVES UNDER PRESSURE: artistically, with surgical precision, slices layer-by-layer opposing party’s numerous “expert witnesses” credibility, and then further strips them of each piece of their evidence, as effortlessly as though he were peeling the skin off an apple. It’s his gift, which he has dedicated himself to mastering.

3) COMMUNICATION: distinguishable from other Colorado Law Firms, Mark embraces his responsibility to real customer service: prompt email responses, phone calls and availability. Dedication to delivering high-quality legal documents that he works on throughout the legal time-frame afforded instead or the more common “procrastination” bad habits of other law firms, who are easily pacified with “producing” something last minute. This work ethic empowers Mark to not have to hide
from his clients and it facilitates his excellent customer service.
