    Mark and I worked on an international personal injury case recently, one that also involved worker's compensation issues, including major safety violations. The case took four years to resolve. In that time, Mark took countless depositions of expert and fact witnesses, made several court appearances, and successfully defeated a significant motion for summary judgment involving intentional tort law. Throughout this involved matter, Mark demonstrated excellent knowledge of the evolving Ohio law, related to our common client in a clear and decisive manner, and acted professionally at every opportunity. It was a distinct honor to work with Mark in this case. I have the highest regard for his honesty, competence and tenacity. I look forward to working with him again in the future. James C. Crowley, IV Cincinnati, OH
