    I am an appellate lawyer. I work with Mark on many of his appeals. He is passionate, organize, committed, and has an excellent command of facts and stays on top of legal developments. I've also read several of his transcripts. At the trial level he is very thorough. I would rather have a root canal than be in the witness box being cross examined by him.
