The courtroom experience Mark obtained as an Assistant Prosecutor solidified the advice and teaching he has received throughout his life and career.During law Mark had the opportunity to intern for the Honorable Tonianne Bongiovanni, Magistrate Judge of the United States District Court, and upon graduating from Seton Hall Law School, Mark proudly clerked for the Honorable Ira E. Kreizman in the Monmouth County Superior Court Criminal Division.  Most importantly, Mark learned the importance of hard work, education and family from another Judge, his father Mark T.

What Are People Saying About Mark T. Apostolou, Jr. ?

Unemployment denial

After being mistreated by an old employer and losing a job with zero explanation, Mark stepped in and very professionally we fought for all my unemployment benefits that were being withheld. We had several interviews with the state and without Mark Apostolou's representation I would have been facing an uphill battle. With his help I had confidence and after a successful appeal I was awarded the benefits that I feel I should have received long ago.

When I consulted Mark on an issue I had with NJClass, he was extremely knowledgable and gave me multiple options on how I could proceed.

Above and Beyond

After some unfortunate events, I had the very fortunate experience meeting Mark Apostolou Jr. In my moment of greatest legal need Mark was there for me every step of the way. He did everything within his power, beyond my wildest expectations to clear my record of some very serious, possibly life altering charges. Never having required a lawyer or facing charges of the magnitude I faced; I placed my very livelihood in Mark's very able hands. When it came to gathering evidence, finding statutes that benefitted me, or bringing in the right experts at the right time; Mark was on point. My case dragged on for almost a year and not once did I feel like Mark was not right by my side fighting for me. He made himself available on a consistent and constant basis either by phone or by email, and was always quick to respond and put my fears at ease. His knowledge of the law, background as a prosecutor, and ultimately his passion for his clients makes him the ideal attorney. No matter what I requested, be it a menial question or to prepare paperwork for me, it was done almost immediately. I would emphatically recommend Mark Apostolou Jr to anyone who requires legal assistance.
