  • Rhonda B. Ives

    I met Attorney Mark DiCello through advanced trial training at Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyer's College. I was able to personally observe Mark's natural ability for litigation and persuasion. His dedication to better himself as a trial lawyer sets him apart from other attorneys, but it is his dedication to the justice he seeks for his clients that means the most. If you want a winning edge, contact Attorney Mark DiCello.
