  • Douglas A Loefgren

    Mark and I worked together on a very complex legal matter. Of course he is highly skilled and knowledgeable, but what really sets him apart from the masses is his persuasiveness and communication skills. He is one of the few individuals I have ever encountered that could probably talk a cat off the top of a fish truck. Mark receives my highest recommendation.
