About Mark

Learn Mark’s areas of practice.

When I am not creating estate plans, I enjoy spending time with my family, the great outdoors and taking trips to our local beaches. Until recently, I enjoyed traveling in my grandpa's 1972 Winnebago Brave RV. Sadly, I had to give her up, but she was donated to a worthy cause. My hobbies also include maintaining a 100-gallon saltwater fish tank. Call me to discuss how to make plans for your future or sea anemones.

Best and Most Wonderful Experience Hiring Mark as our Attorney!
I went to a free seminar on Trusts/Wills that Mark was hosting at a local church. I had always wanted to have a Trust but never got around to creating one. The seminar had about 20 people in attendance and Mark did a great job explaining in detail how Trusts work and how to create one. After the seminar, I decided to contact Mark to find out more. He was super helpful and so my husband and I decided to go ahead and create one. There were many steps and things to do to create it and Mark did a fantastic job of walking us through each step. He is patient, kind, extremely knowledgeable, and very trustworthy! His advice was exactly what we needed. It took only a few weeks to complete the Trust and we had it notarized. The whole process was smooth. Mark was always available by phone, email, and text. He replied quickly and answered all our questions very thoroughly. I feel so at ease knowing that this important step in securing our finances for our family and our kids is done. It is such a welcome relief to know this and we couldn't have asked for a better lawyer than Mark Padilla. He is excellent!!! Call him and get your Trust or any of your legal matters handled. You will be glad you called!
