About Me

 


I am committed to providing legal services and obtaining justice for individuals who have been harmed or injured due to the negligence of others or harmed or injured while working.  In my office, we believe in the dignity of the individual and will not turn someone away merely for financial reasons.  We strive to provide this service in an honest, professional and direct manner and will conduct ourselves with the highest level of integrity and professionalism when dealing with clients, the court system, opposing attorneys and the public. I believe in the truth: in embracing it and honoring it and not trying to hide it or change it.  I believe the practice of law is a noble profession and will strive to show all who observe us why we are worthy of their trust.

    Not enough can be said about Mark Wagner. In addition to being one of the best lawyers I know, he is a great person. Mark is always taking that extra step in his representation of his clients. I have also had the pleasure of spending some time with Mark at workshops put on by Gerry Spence and other top notch attorneys. He made an impact on my life and on my career that will live with me forever. He is honest and full of integrity. Of course, he gets my highest recommendation.
