  • Hunter ~ May 2015

    Long story short, i was issued a citation i did not agree with at all. I did not want the City of Houston to extort even a penny of my money. I called 5 different attorneys before reaching out to Markowitz Law. The staff there was amazingly professional, understanding, compassionate, quick to respond and follow up with information. They charged WAY less than all the other attorneys (one wanted $300 alone), and agreed with my plight that the ticket was unfair. They walked me through the whole process of getting the ticket dismissed, but without giving me false hope, which was incredibly professional! If you want an attorney who actually cares about their clients, handles business in a quick and professional manner while still being compassionate, then stop reading and hire these guys!

    Handled my situation; money well spent.  Very fair and reasonable along the way.  The advise given was "spot on" ..... happened as planned.  Very satisfied with my results.

    Don't change a thing. Everyone I talked to was polite, friendly, and willing to spend the time to make me comfortable during this process.  ~Troy N.

    Best ticket lawyer I've ever used! The office staff was quick to reply to my initial inquiry and kept me informed of court date change and even sent a reminder a couple days before court day. Court room lawyers were very professional and took time to explain the process before the roll was even called.testimonialslogo2

    My assigned attorney was very informative about the proceeding and what to expect. I really appreciated that.testimonialslogox2

    Thanks for making this process as painless as possible.  I am not American, so I really didn't know what to expect.  I was in and out of the courtroom with the ticket dismissed within one hour.  I really liked the fact that we could submit everything electronically and it was really uncomplicated.  However, some people may like some more communication and guidance as to what to expect,  since going to court is kind of a big deal for some people.

  • Boray Y

    Going to court for a traffic violation is not ideal in any way but the level of service and professionalism from the Law Firm makes it manageable.  Mr. Markowitz is very helpful and gives good advice. He was able to answer my questions and find the best possible solution. The court room attorneys are great because even though the process is time consuming and we have to wait in court, the attorney's do their best to speed up the process. Also if the case goes to trial they work hard to get a favorable outcome and will assist again if it must be reopened. I am satisfied and use Markowitz Law Firm when I have a traffic tickets. Thank you.
  • Chris C

    Since it was my first time going to court, I was a bit nervous about making sure I was able to meet with my attorney.  But after I found out how it worked (pool of attorneys, multiple courtrooms) I understood it would take a bit of time to get things going.  The email I received on what to do when going to court was pretty helpful and put my mind at ease a bit.

  • David G

    Excellent service.  Great Job! Highly recommend them.

  • Barry B

    Exceeded my expectations for every aspect of this case.  Good teamwork, good job by everyone.  110% Satisfied.  I highly recommend.

  • Tawanna W

    Keep doing what you're doing.  No complaints at all.  Very professional from office staff to court attorneys.  Professionalism was not just proper etiquette, but was very evident in attitude, actions and attire.  I will look for no one else when concerning my legal needs, unless advised from Markowitz Law Firm!

  • Jess M

    You guys were the easiest people to ever deal with.  I will be referring everyone I can your way. No doubt.

  • Kathy C

    I have no complaints, only compliments. Thanks y'all!

  • R Nguyen

    Markowitz Law Firm, thank you for the outstanding representation!  I appreciate all that you do and I will definitely refer you.  Until then, thank you and keep up the amazing work.

  • Client

    "I was satisfied with Scott and the law firm.  He was straight forward with me from my first conversation with him. I was a little skeptical at first but the result was more than what I had expected. He is good at what he does even though I didn't get to meet him the very first time due to his busy schedule. I highly recommend him to anyone else that is in a little bit of a pickle. Thank You Mr. Markowitz."

  • N. Toledo

    Ticket Dismissed

    "I want to thank Markowitz Law Firm for the job that they did for me in court. I was very surprised with the outcome I never thought that I was going to get my ticket dismissed and I was going with the impression of a defeated man.  This is a lesson learned & will carry it with me until I cannot drive any longer.  A million thanks to you, thank you, thank you!"

  • Jeremy

    CDL Moving Violation

    "I have a CDL, so I couldn't afford this ticket on my driving record. I researched and called many lawyers, and Mr. Markowitz was by far the most professional lawyer I spoke to. He knew exactly what he was going to do, and told me his exact plan for me if I hired him. When we got to court, Mr. Markowitz and his team had a plan, and that plan worked. Ticket dismissed!"

  • Manuel M.

    I called your office and your secretary very efficiently and pleasantly took my information, sent an email the same day with instructions and the deal was sealed.  Service is the key to success.  Good job and keep up the good work!

  • A Very Pleased Client

    Traffic Ticket Dismissed

    Got my ticket dismissed! Also, I needed to leave court to pick up my son and the attorney spoke with the Judge and was able to get me two-hour leave. Communicated well. I would hire again in a heartbeat. Thanks

    Cases Dismissed

    Before choosing their team, I searched and called around comparing them to other Houston area traffic defense teams, and decided theirs was both very high quality and also very competitively priced. I was very satisfied with my experience.

  • George

    Speeding Ticket

    I don't know how this attorney and staff know when to reschedule so the ticketing officer does not show up, but they did with my three moving violations. The cost of his services was the best deal I have had in a long time.

  • Kent R.

    Three Traffic Citations Dismissed

    Thank you so much Markowitz and associates! I had 3 traffic citations which were all thrown out. I could have been in serious trouble with my drivers license. Besides the fact that I live alone and pay expensive child support and medical insurance on my child who lives out of state. I didn't have the money to pay my fines. The help I recieved was most appreciated. Thanks again.

  • Michelle

    Speeding Ticket

    "This firm was extremely responsive and knowledgeable. They even took the time to educate us on the "backstory" of our legal situation before we hired them so that we could help ourselves as much as possible. When we hired them, they immediately started the action necessary to stop what was in progress and get control of the situation. Hopefully, we'll never need their services again once we're past this, but if we do, they will be the firm we hire."

  • Maria

    Traffic Ticket

    The day of my court I was running late. By the time I got there he had already took care of business. Needless to say he was very pleasant and professional.

  • Charles

    Traffic Ticket

    "I have never had an experience with a lawyer like this. He picks up the phone and speaks with you personally (wow!).  Always honest about the possible outcome of your case and strives to do his best.  He is batting a thousand for me."

  • Kate S.

    Attorney, Criminal Defense

    "I refer all of my speeding/traffic ticket cases to Scott Markowitz. He knows the transportation code backwards and forwards, and is popular with court staff because of his affable personality and commitment to his clients."

  • Kieran

    Car Accident

    "Service-oriented firm. They always answer calls and Scott will call you back himself if you have any questions. He handled two very different cases for us - one in Precinct 4, the other in Houston. Both times the lawyers listened to us and handled our arguments professionally. We were very happy with both outcomes. They know the law and they know the courts."

  • Joey

    Speeding Ticket Dismissed

    "It was my second speeding ticket in three months and I didn't want my insurance rates to go up, so I hired him. My friend is the one who recommended him and I'm glad he did. Ticket was dismissed and he was cheaper than the fine."

  • Ben L.

    Multiple Traffic Citations

    "Speeding, no front license plate, failure to appear...not too much for Scott to handle! He made it all into a 'non-moving violation' and kept my insurance premiums from increasing. With a new Red Corvette it was well worth it!"

  • Stan J.

    Traffic Ticket Defense

    "Scott and his staff handled everything for me and the ticket is off my record. He saved me many hours in the process and that is money well spent."

  • Brad

    Traffic Ticket Dismissed

    "Thank you AGAIN, for getting me out of another traffic ticket.Today, you were able to get my traffic ticket dismissed, and I was out of the traffic ticket court house in UNDER 40 Minutes!!! That was great!!"

  • Jason L.

    Speeding Tickets

    "Over the years I have dealt with a couple attorneys in Houston for traffic violations and never have had the great experience like I had with THE TRAFFIC TICKET MAN! Thanks so much to you and your firm for all your help! There is nothing like driving with a clean slate!"

  • Jawaad

    Suspended Drivers License

    "Mr. Markowitz is awesome! He really does try hard to keep your record clean! I have used him over and over and every-time he helps me. He got my Drivers License unsuspended FAST! I would give him 5 stars!!"

The Markowitz Law Firm began in 1993 as a ticket defense firm and remains so today. Many law firms offer cheap ticket defense as a mass marketing “loss leader” to uncover more lucrative cases like personal injury lawsuits. Ticket defense becomes a sideline operation and customer service suffers as a result. At The Markowitz Law Firm, you can be certain your case will be treated as the most important case we handle…..and it is!

Reduce your Surcharges!

Clients come to me all the time with mountains of accummulated DPS surcharges which are those insidious additional penalties that you have to pay AFTER you pay the fine on certain traffic tickets or convictions for DWI.    The program has raised tens of millions of dollars for the State and it does so...
