About Mark

Learn Mark’s areas of practice.

Mark is a commercial litigation partner who primarily practices in construction-related matters and disputes of nearly all types, with an emphasis on construction payment rights and remedies including private and public payment bonds, mechanics’/materialmen’s liens, stop notices, prompt pay law, and “no-pay” claims before the Arizona Registrar of Contractors. He regularly represents suppliers, subcontractors, general contractors, owners/ developers, registered professionals, and lenders in construction contract formation, trials, arbitrations, administrative actions, and mediation/negotiation/dispute resolution.

Appearing before the civil division of the Arizona State Superior Court is often required in Mark’s practice. His court experience includes jury and bench trials, hearings, and numerous oral arguments, where he has served as lead and co-counsel in a variety of construction and non-construction litigation matters. Mark’s non-construction experience includes commercial contract breach, administrative law matters, commercial foreclosures, creditor rights, and enforcement of money judgments. He has also served as an Arbitrator in several Maricopa County Superior Court compulsory arbitration actions.

In addition to having traditional Superior Court civil litigation skills, he appears regularly before various administrative agencies and forums, most frequently the Arizona Registrar of Contractors and Arizona Office of Administrative Hearings. Mark’s hearings and appearances before the Registrar of Contractors include prosecuting and defending allegations concerning workmanship, “no-pay” complaints, and various regulatory issues that can arise when the construction contract is breached. He has also been involved in appeals from the Registrar’s office to the Superior Court, District Court, and 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Mark has extensive experience in construction matters which fall within the parallel jurisdictions of the Registrar’s office and the civil courts.

Excellent service and a positive attitude
Mark has had the experience of specializing in the area of construction law during the most challenging times in our industry. The recession that hit our industry brought out unique circumstances and turmoil at the highest rate that I have seen in my career. We have been using Mark and his firm for approximately 10 years and his experience in construction law as well as finance and credit have been a big asset to our team. If you are looking for someone that is responsive, listens well, provides honest feedback and is very fair then I would highly recommend him.

Excellent Service
Mark provided guidance and excellent legal advice on several occasions when faced with customers who did not want to pay for services rendered. In addition to that, I have attended his seminars on Payment Remedies, which greatly reduced situations where we had no recourse. Our collections percentage increased dramatically. When our company merged, he recommended another attorney in his firm, who also provided excellent service. Mark definitely improves the image of lawyers!

All about $$
I hired him to collect money owed to me from an Arizona-based LLC and an individual. The entire time he was more busy trying to collect money from me than collecting money from the defendants for me. I felt he purposely ran up time to get another set of retainer. When I told him that I will review the ledger (as I always do for any attorneys), he became very upset and defensive. Before I knew it, he filed a motion to withdraw as a counsel, and left the case completely open. This was a case where I was trying to collect money from a client, I was a CONTRACTOR. However he kept wasting his time (or my money) trying to figure out whether there was a wage issue. I don't know how I could be more clear that I was not an employee, I was a contractor. I have come across some attorneys that only care about the money they make, no matter what the outcome may be, but I felt this attorney was the worst of all.

Response from Mark Bogard April 17, 2013
This client's matter was aggresively contested by opposing counsel and a counterclaim was filed against her and her company. She never paid more than her original $5k retainer amount, and my firm and I were compelled to withdraw from further representation due to nonpayment and refusal to replenish the retainer. I later learned that her prior counsel was also unpaid. Adding insult to economic injury, this person is now defaming me with posts such as this. My mistake was not recognizing sooner that this person is a bad apple. In 16 years of practice, I've had to withdraw from represention approximately five times. Unfortunately, this was one of those times.
