About Me

Mr. Bezinque assists his clients in their transition from their current relationship – marriage, domestic partnership – and into their new lives, helping them achieve a lasting resolution that meets their core needs related to their family, financial security, individual privacy and personal dignity.

As a Collaborative Law attorney, Mr. Bezinque helps people simplify the confusion of the divorce process and enables them to prioritize their needs. Working together with his clients, he explores and pursues their concerns about parenting plans and residency schedules, spousal and child support, location and valuation of assets and valuation of businesses and real estate.

    I first met Mark a number of years ago when we represented opposing spouses in a highly contested divorce case. I came away from that case with great respect for Mark's knowledge, experience, and ability as both a litigator and a negotiator. I no longer handle contested custody matters and I have referred a number of clients to Mark for representation. I have only received good reviews. I have no hesitation referring the most difficult or complicated cases to Mark.
