Mark John Favaloro

About me

I have been a practicing Attorney for 33 years and thoroughly enjoy the practice of law.  My experience in the Commonwealths of Virginia and Massachusetts has shown me the value of preparation and commitment to my clients. Ultimately, a lawyer serves his or her clients best by knowing and understanding the case at hand backwards and forwards, and that is the standard I set for myself in all cases that I handle.

If I can be of service to you in the future, please feel free to contact me.  Further information about me and my firm is available at

Thank you.
