    Mark has been one of the finest and most knowledgeable estate planning attorneys I have had the pleasure to work with. I have known Mark for over ten years; in that time, we have worked together on several estate planning matters. Each time, I watched him combine his in-depth knowledge with an understanding of his client’s needs. This allows him to create the estate plan that best suits his clients rather than trying to fit his clients into a specific plan. There is no other lawyer I would trust more to provide me with the proper guidance on matters related to estate planning.
