    I strongly endorse this lawyer. Mark was opposing counsel on a multi-million dollar patent infringement case against my fortune 500 client. He was tremendously professional during our exchanges. Additionally, he was amicable, and therefore, easy to get along with because he knew not only the law, but also the facts of his case inside and out. What could have been a highly contentious patent case costing our respective clients millions of dollars to pursue, became a very practical, pointed resolution of only the genuine disputes between the parties. Both of our clients received excellent representation and were pleased with the outcome. As a litigator, I wish all my cases were so enjoyable to work up, pursue, and resolve. We did it the old-fashioned way - in good faith. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Mark again either as opposing counsel or co-counsel.

    I met Mark Mathie in 2001 at McKool Smith where I was a summer clerk. He was tough on me then and tough on me when I worked on his team as a young lawyer from 2002 - 2008. But, his apparent "toughness" was his process of teaching me how to a precise, detail-oriented, and client-focused attorney. I was privileged to work for him as he served as the overall "chief operations officer" for the litigation and licensing work for one of the firm's largest client (a $14bil per year revenue, Fortune 200 company). He achieved that company great results both on the plaintiff and defendant side of the docket. Mark is also a leader in pro bono work on behalf of some of Dallas's most in-need citizens.
