Attorney Profile

Attorney Mark M. Cheser founded his Union, New Jersey, law firm, Mark M. Cheser, Attorney at Law, in 1988 with the goal of providing high-quality criminal defense services to the people of Union and Elizabeth and surrounding Union and Essex counties. Today, more than 25 years later, Mr. Cheser continues to strive toward his original goal by representing clients facing a variety of criminal charges, including:


• Traffic citations
• DWI
• Drug crimes
• Theft
• Fraud
• Sex offenses


Mr. Cheser began his legal career in 1978 after earning his law degree from Emory University School of Law and his approval to practice law in the state of New Jersey. After passing the bar, he began his career as a prosecutor. He worked in the Union County Prosecutor's Office for several years before going into private practice. The experience he gained on the other side of the aisle continues to benefit his clients today.


Over the past nearly 40 years, Mr. Cheser has earned the respect of his clients and his peers. The New Jersey Supreme Court recognizes him as a certified criminal trial attorney, which is an honor that fewer than 300 attorneys in the state hold. In addition, the Richard J. Hughes American Inn of Court named him a Master of the Inn of Court, which is an honor only bestowed upon the most experienced and knowledgeable attorneys.


When Mr. Cheser is not in the courtroom, the law still occupies a large portion of his time. He is a regular guest speaker and continuing education course presenter, and he is a member of a number of legal associations. He is an active member of the New Jersey State Bar Association and the Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers of New Jersey, to name only a few.
