Hiepler & Hiepler represented me in a case recently. Mark Hiepler is amazing! He is incredibly competent, knowledgeable, responsive, patient, and easy to work with. He really knows his stuff!! And, importantly, knows how to work with others in his profession.
Before going with Hiepler & Hiepler, I interviewed a number of different law firms. Making the decision to go with Mark Hiepler was a no-brainer. The other attorneys I interviewed either were not very knowledgeable, couldn't be bothered to call me back or follow through on things, were not pleasant, or seemed "small time." This was in sharp contrast to Mark Hiepler. It should be noted that Mark Hiepler was also named one of the 100 Most Influential Lawyers by the National Law Journal and is a Southern California Super Lawyer.
Furthermore, Mark assigned a wonderful attorney, Maria McCarthy, to my case.
She handled the day-to-day operations. Maria is responsive, thorough, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. She is also tenacious and a fighter for her clients.
Everyone on Mark's team that I worked with from paralegals to accounting, and office staff were incredibly conscientious, competent, detail-oriented, and responsive. Note this is in stark contrast to other attorneys' offices. --Apparently, in the lawyer job culture, it is common practice and acceptable NOT to call clients back or respond to emails. I mean, give me a break! -- Even doctors call their patients back!
At any rate, if you want first-rate representation, I can't say enough about Mark Hiepler.
I was in a catastrophic bicycle versus truck accident in Santa Barbara County. My wife and I had numerous knowledgeable people refer us to Mark Hiepler and the Law Offices of Hiepler and Hiepler due to his knowledge, experience, and actual trials involving bike accidents. His experience proved helpful to us in not only handling the case but helping us ensure I was getting the best rehabilitation care, surgical care, and he prepared my wife and I for the process of the law suit. We are grateful for the referral, the outcome, and the professional and friendship relationship that we hope to continue with he and his excellent team.
My son and I are forever grateful to you, Marc Anderson, and the entire team you put together to represent us in the wrongful death/pedestrian case of my wife as a result of a large, national trucking company's careless negligence.
I interviewed three other firms and am grateful I chose Hiepler & Hiepler. I liked the fact that as a father yourself, you understood my son and took the time to meet with both of us so we were never surprised by anything the defense attorneys tried to do to us. You were better able to understand our needs as you too had experienced great personal tragedy which made you sensitive to our needs and aggressive in your representation of us against a large, uncaring company. Your past success against the defense firm and the same trucking company gave us the advantage of your 19 year track record of success.
While your firm has a national reputation, I was impressed at how attentive you were to us as individuals, including always being available to personally answer, in layperson's terms, my numerous questions throughout the two and a half years you represented me and my family.
As a lawyer with an extensive background in commercial litigation and criminal prosecution, I never expected that I would need to hire my own attorney to represent me in a case against my insurance provider. I never thought a large corporation would victimize someone like me - recognizing my own limitations, I knew I required the best legal representation. Simply put, after much research, I chose Mark Hiepler to be my advocate. Due to my extensive ties to the legal community, I could have hired anyone in Los Angeles, Orange County or surrounding areas to represent me as a Bad Faith Insurance/Personal Injury attorney. The decision to hire Mark was the best decision I could have made. In more than 2 1/2 years of dealing directly with Mark and his stellar co-counsel Maria Wusinich (as well as the entire Hiepler & Hiepler team), I felt secure and comforted by the team's passion, dedication, compassion and amazing work ethic. The entire team acted with integrity and demonstrated by their actions that they genuinely cared. As a victim, the Hiepler & Hiepler team inspired me with confidence and made me realize that I did not have to fight the fight alone. Mark and his team made my life much easier - they even met with me, as needed, in West Los Angeles. Most importantly, they fought and won - we achieved an incredible result. I wholeheartedly recommend Mark and his team to anyone looking to stand up for what is right and just.

It has been nearly four years since the wrongful death of our daughter that occurred as a result of a terrible bus accident. I wanted to thank you and let you know that I saw the love of God in your work and that of your entire staff who worked so tirelessly on behalf of our family and my daughter’s children.
When we were referred to you, we had interviewed a number of large Los Angeles area law firms that each showed great promise. However, we chose you because you stood out in your commitment to your sister and your abilities to look at our cause. We never fell through the cracks and got excellent personal attention. We saw your determination in leaving no stone unturned in your preparation. You reached out to us in our hurt, our emptiness and our grief. We felt that we became a part of your family.
The numbers of the cases you had won were impressive but they were not comparable to the determination and encouragement you displayed to me and my entire family. You, once again, won the case through the eyes of the law and, in the process, won our hearts through your diligence and compassion.

I can personally attest to the fact that Mark Hiepler and his firm does an excellent job for clients in bad faith insurance cases and serious injury cases. The firm’s national reputation and record setting verdicts does not get in the way of Mark’s personal care and concern for the individuals involved. I have witnessed him at trial in my own sister’s bad faith case where he got an outstanding verdict, but more importantly, his care and concern for our family years after the case was over. I have referred him to other family members who have been in serious accidents and always hear great things about the work he and his staff do that is above and beyond the call of duty. No one ever falls through the cracks at Hiepler & Hiepler. They have the reputation, resources, and results that go a long way to helping people.
