As a litigator-turned-transactional attorney, I have a lot of respect for attorneys who handle litigation matters on a full-time basis. It requires not only an understanding of multiple areas of the law, but also the ability to make strong legal arguments. Mark has both the knowledge and analytical skill required of this position and I highly recommend his expertise to those in need of a litigator in Los Angeles.
