About Mark

Learn Mark’s areas of practice.

I am a sole practitioner engaged in the private practice of law since 1979. Although I have handled many types of cases over the years, my  emphasis is in the area of family law, which includes divorce, annulment, legal separation, paternity, child custody, and child support.

I am an experienced trial attorney, having conducted many contested trials and hearings over the entire 36+ years of my practice. I am also a trained mediator, both in civil cases generally and in child custody matters.

I am a member of many bar associations and legal organizations, including the Christian Legal Society and our local Christian Lawyer Referral Network. It is always my natural inclination to attempt to resolve conflict with the least amount of litigation possible through either mediation or negotiation and settlement, recognizing, however, that it is necessary in some cases to be more aggressive in the advocacy of my client's rights through the courts. As both a trial attorney and a mediator, I am uniquely trained and qualified to do just that.

As I offer a free initial telephone consultation, you may feel free to call me anytime to discuss your case. I look forward to hearing from you.

Highly Recommended!!!!!
Mr. Jeffers is an extremely fair attorney. I was once told by a judge that he is one of the best! He made me feel comfortable knowing that he was on my side.

Wise Counsel
Mr. Jeffers provided thoughtful, informed, wise counsel when I was going through a difficult divorce. He led me through the process step by step, protected my rights as a father, and served as an excellent advocate on my behalf. I'd recommend him wholeheartedly.

Mark did all our estate planning for us. He is very easy to talk to and work with. He asked the right questions to get all the paper work done correctly. I have referred co- workers to him.

Very helpful
Mr. Jeffers is incredibly responsive and efficient. He has a lot of experience in this area of practice, which is especially apparent in the courtroom and in difficult circumstances. He's kind and respectful to all parties involved, and he has been an effective advocate for me throughout the process. I'm grateful to have found solid, compassionate representation.

A strong attorney!
I've not only been represented by Mr. Jeffers, but I've seen him argue cases in court for others. He is knowledgeable, direct, and, best of all, successful.
