Mark protected my interests and secured an extremely favorable agreement with my ex-employer!
Mark represented me in a non-compete negotiation with my former employer. Although feelings were tense on both sides, Mark did a great job of keeping me on track during the entire process. He has a strong understanding of both the law and human psychology. Both skills became necessary to help protect my interests, and keep me from lashing out inappropriately. Not only do I have utmost respect for Mark’s ability as an attorney, but I have come to like and trust Mark as a person, too. Liking one’s attorney is not always important, but it sure helps to work with one that cares, you happen to like, AND can get the job done right at the same time. Ultimately, Mark helped me secure an agreement with my ex- employer that made me extremely happy. I highly recommend Mark!

Litigation Attorney | Apr 24
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Mark is an excellent litigator with an eye for detail. Mark’s client-centered approach ensures his clients’ needs are at the forefront. Whether it be general litigation, business law, or appellate work, his vast knowledge of the law and creative problem solving skills are valuable assets to his well-rounded practice."
Debt settlement Attorney | Apr 23
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Mark is a consummate professional. He upholds the highest levels of professionalism while remaining a very zealous advocate for his client. Mark negotiates hard for his clients and strives to get them great results. Many attorneys today are slow to respond or don’t respond at all; Mark was always very responsive and would get back to me within a very short period of time. I believe this was a benefit to both our clients as instead of dragging on through litigation, we were able to resolve a matter in a couple of weeks."
