I enjoy interacting with people, and helping them resolve their disputes. My values include:
Concern and capacity for each individual in light of their particular circumstances;
Civility and respect to lawyers and non-lawyers;
My reputation is aggressive, understanding and effective advocacy. I believe in working hard to achieve the best settlment possible through negotiation and mediation but when that is not possible to aggressively advocate for my clients in court.

I worked with Mark on a matter which presented some very unusual facts, together with a number of complicated legal issues. I was extremely impressed by the wealth of knowledge that Mark brought to the matter. I was equally impressed by the extreme compassion that he demonstrated towards his clients, while at the same time providing passionate and powerful advocacy on their behalves. I highly endorse this lawyer.
Jonathan Berman Family Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the lawyer did something wrong but the bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
