Earlier this year Mark was included in the Top Rated Construction Lawyers in Nevada by The American Lawyer Magazine and Corporate Counsel Magazine.

Mark was raised in Las Vegas. His grandfather moved here in the 1930's and became a County Commissioner in the 1950's and 60's instrumental in building the Clark County convention center, airport and courthouse. In law school, Mark served as an author and editor on the law review and later clerked for Federal Judge Lloyd D. George in Las Vegas. Mark received his AV rating (highest possible by Martindale) based on attorney and judicial surveys, in 1996, after just 15 years of practice. This places his practice and firm in the top 5% of attorneys and law firms. Mark presided over a large nonprofit organization in Washington DC with a multi-million dollar budget and some 500 full-time volunteers during 2009-2011.  If you need to reach him immediately, call his cell at 702-201-8505.
