    I am a law school classmate and friend of Mark Jackson. I have known Mark for nearly 29 years. We both attended law school on scholarships through our respective military services. As a student, a fellow military officer, a friend and as a lawyer, Mark has shown he is a man of the highest character and accomplishment. You can count on Mark Jackson. He's a winner who produces the very best results consistently. He is THE lawyer to call in my book for any government contracts/litigation issue. Bottom-line: If you're in a legal battle where failure is not an option, Mark Jackson is the man your want representing you. As a U.S. Marine officer, I would pick Mark Jackson as the ONLY Air Force officer (vs. a U.S. Marine) to be in combat with me -- that's how much I trust Mark Jackson to produce the best results when it matters most...and so should anyone reading this endorsement.

    I worked with Mark as opposing counsel and later as co-counsel on several matters. He is very knowledgeable about government contracts and construction law and working with him was a pleasure.
