Well worth the investment
Being a tier-one contractor requires a top attorney who completely understands the financial environment of the day. Given the opportunity, Mark has always provided sound advice, and continually protects the financial interest of our company from those customer/clients that are reluctant to pay on time or pay at all. Mark consistently protects our lien/bond rights and ensures that all notices and/or filings are accurate and timely. In many cases there are hundreds of thousands of dollars at stake, and at the same time on the small items just as much expertise and passion is provided. The one unmistakable attribute that will be discovered within a very short period of time is Mark will never spend your money in a frivolous matter, and his counsel always has an efficient and economical means to the end.

Legal Counsel Review
I have worked with Mark Walsh on several cases in the past. The most recent was a multi-party construction contact, in which we were sued by the General Contractor and then we countersued. Eventually, the suit included numerous parties, (Consulting Engineer, General Contractor, several Sub-Contractors and Material Suppliers). In working with Mark in the past, it was easy to recognize his capabilites regarding law, however, i had not, before this case, spent time with him in a mediation. During this multi-party suit, i saw abilities in Mark that i had not seen before. During the mediation, he showed proficiency in presenting technical issues (I am a Civil Engineer, and this case involved technical Civil Engineering issues), but more importantly, he was direct, strong, though fair, and unbending with the mediator when he needed to be. At the conclusion of the mediation, i felt we received an award in an amount well in excess of the amount i anticipated, and felt that was due to the approach that Mark took throughout the mediation. There is law, and then there is the application of law in the various settings (court, mediation, arbitration, etc), the ability to stress the critical points at the appropriate time, and the ability to negotiate, and the knowledge and experience when not to negotiate down from your position. As i said, i felt i had seen Mark's capabilities in the field of law before this case, however, as a result of this case, i saw a broader view of his capabilities in this field, and feel even more comfortable because of that going forward.

Hire him. He is smart, strategic, knowledgeable and trustworthy.
Mark handled a complex legal dispute I had with a contractor. The result was he negotiated a settlement that included post-judgment collection costs. As with many legal issues, there are several strategies to consider. Mark made sure I understood all possible outcomes and would provide several different ways to tackle each step. He spent my retainer wisely, and I definitely got my money's worth. In addition, he has a competent, detail-oriented staff who cares about a client's case. Every call or email was returned promptly throughout the entire process. Mark has business expertise, too, so I hired him to form a second business I started in 2012. If I ever have any kind of legal issue, Mark is the first person I will call. I trust his advice, and definitely would hire him again.
