    Mark Sessums and his team represented me beautifully in a auto accident case. The case took over two years because Medicaid claimed it had paid some of my expenses for the accident when they were for cancer related charges. I am a senior citizen and every dollar of my recovery was important to me. Mark got me a generous recovery and then fought off Medicaid's claim to my expenses in two appeals within Medicaid system. Thank you Sessums Law Group and Mark! Read less

    Mark bailed me out during a 5 year divorce battle. My first attorney was in over his head...and noticeably so... Mark took the case, and never seemed confused or shocked at things that were happening. In fact, he would give me a pretty good idea of what would happen from his experience.. When we settled with the divorce, we opened a legal malpractice suit against my first lawyer because my prenup, that he drew up, was thrown out in the Second DCA. BIG chunk was just recovered !!
