  • Charles Timothy Dillon

    I've known Attorney Mark Scurti for many years. He is truly an inspiration to know and work with. Not only is he a master of the technical aspects of complex bankruptcy and corporate laws, but he is also very practical in their application. He sets the standard by which other attorneys should be measured. I highly recommend him to everyone needing serious representation.
