    - Nov 21 2022 I had an excellent experience working with Mark and his team. His proactivity, subject matter expertise and attention to detail set me up well.
  • Jennifer Boyd

    - Aug 15 2022 Mark and I attended the same law school, then worked together for a decade or so as associates and later partners at Whitman Breed Abbott & Morgan. We have continued to collaborate in the years since, and I am always delighted to refer cases to him. He is highly competent and highly ethical, and he provides exceptional service. He has had some very impressive wins in his career because he is a smart, well-prepared and zealous advocate. When you choose Mark to take your case, you are in really good hands.

    - Apr 22 2022 I contacted Mark to review the non-compete language in my employment contract. Mark's review was very timely (only a couple of days) and his feedback was clear and concise. I will likely be using Mark again in the future, and would recommend his services to others.

    - Feb 17 2022 Mark was incredibly helpful in helping me navigate complex legal agreements related to my work and transition into a new role. He's thoughtful, thorough, and explains everything very clearly. Working with him gave me confidence to advocate for myself with some tricky topics. I highly recommend working with Mark.
  • David Mahler

    - Feb 16 2022 Easy to work with and quick to get me answers
  • MMM

    - Feb 16 2022 What has been valuable to me is the ability to use Mark as a sounding board and to calibrate my expectations on a severance package, and, other areas where I thought I was "wronged". Mark's approach after understanding your situation is to seek a path where you (the client) can approach the negotiation identifying friendly decision makers as that often will yield the best results. Mark will coach you on taking points. Because Mark has worked both sides, he is able to explain why companies do what they do, and what they are obligated to do.

    - Feb 14 2022 Mark was great! Used him with two different employment contracts. He was efficient and got everything done right. Would highly recommend.
  • Robert Sievert

    - Feb 14 2022 I'd give 6 stars if I could. I needed a review of documents relating to my employer and a swift response was very important. I called and explained my situation to his receptionist, who quickly connected me with Troy, Mark's paralegal. Troy heard me out and set up my appointment with Mark the next day. In the morning, I emailed my documents to the office and Mark had reviewed them by the time I arrived for a face-to-face meeting that afternoon. He answered all my questions clearly and gave me a point-by-point review of my documents. In addition to being very efficient, Mark was a complete pleasure to speak with. I will return if I have any other related issues.
  • Adam DePanfilis

    - Dec 06 2019 I came to Mark for advice on an employment / severance matter. He was tremendously helpful and friendly, and his ability to translate complicated legal advice into plain English was fantastic. His timely feedback was also much appreciated. At the end, he not only helped me obtain the outcome I desired, but managed to make it even better than I initially thought. Mark was recommended to me by a friend (who is also a lawyer), and I would recommend Mark to anyone - I couldn't be a happier client.

    - Oct 21 2018 I came to attorney Carta after an disappointing experience with another local lawyer. Mark was genuine and professional. What I liked him the most was the fact that he sincerely cared about me, as a client. He worked hard to try to achieve the best result for me; and when that became impractical, he still came up with a creative solution to help me to move on. If you have to work with a lawyer, I would definitely recommend Mark.

    - Feb 26 2018 I have been working with Mark Carta and Margaret Triolo of Carta, Mcalister & Moore for approximately two years relating to a contract and ownership dispute. Their work has been exceptionally strong - very willing to go the extra mile to understand every aspect of my legal case and represent me aggressively. I can't recommend them more highly.

    - Feb 03 2018 18 month ordeal to recover as much of the originally agreed upon sale price of my professional practice. Don't wish that experience on anyone. However, Mark and his team persisted and we were able to recover about 85{cbbf165febdb5c9e7382d0ea2260dd38549f33437b67133716bb132863876b24} of the original agreed upon price. He listens and and he and his team provide support. Couldn't have don't it without him.

  • Pam Libertiny

    - Jan 19 2018 Asked for clarification of CT statute for employment and IC verification regarding child abuse behavior and if it applies to YMCAs prior to employment or contracting individuals. Replied promptly with a definite indication of when I would be getting a response. Response was thorough and responsible as usual. Mark always understands how important it is for us to have prompt answers especially in a child/community-minded environment, as incidents move quickly through this setting. Mark always relaxes my anxieties with his responses!
  • Darcy McAlister

    - Jan 19 2018 Mark's 18 years of experience as a management lawyer in a New York law firm, coupled with his recent two decades of experience representing individual employees, affords him a unique perspective in employment mediations. He sees both sides because he has lived both sides. This perspective, in combination with his mediation and negotiating skill, makes him my first choice for mediating employment disputes.
  • RMF

    - Jan 19 2018 Mark without a doubt was fully knowledgeable about all the issues, aspects and ramifications - but what really stood out was - He cared.

I really felt I had an expert on my side who really had my back.
