Meet the Attorney

Licensed In



Hi, I’m Mark.  I like to think of myself as a problem solver for my clients.

I have been practicing law for approximately 25 years, focusing on business, employment, probate, personal injury, and civil litigation.  During my time as an attorney, I have developed a sense of the real motivations behind lawsuits, which are often not apparent initially, but are the real keys to settling matters.

A high point in my career was a settlement which provided a large sum of money that enabled a mentally disabled individual to live a comfortable life without monetary concerns and finally move out of his very dilapidated living arrangements.

I give my clients a realistic, easy to understand, and practical solution to what they perceive as an overwhelming problem.  In my spare time, I enjoy full contact Karate and competing in tournaments.

Why I Practice Law

I was motivated to become a lawyer after watching Perry Mason with my Grandparents when I was young.

Fun Fact

Through my work with LegalZoom, I have spoken and met with several TV and Movie personalities.
