  • Mark Gerard Jackson

    I have referred several commercial and business litigation matters to Mark with complete confidence that the client is in very good hands. Mark is a true "business" litigator -- he understands that settlements are often in his client’s best interests, and he is very good at analyzing cases, finding pressure points, and using them to negotiate favorable settlements. However, should a case need to go to trial, Mark is an experienced and highly skilled trial lawyer with a proven track record of success.

  • Scott Roberts Weaver

    Mark was opposing counsel on a contentious litigation matter involving family members fighting over investment property. Mark is a tireless advocate for his clients, but also reasonable. I highly endorse his work.
