What they say about him

Mark worked with me for more than two years after a personal injury. 4 surgeries, countless hospital stays, and when it’s finally over, I got treated fairly while being protected from opposing counsel. Medical bills are all paid and I’m well on the road to recovery! I’d recommend Mark for ANY personal injury case. He’ll fight for you when you can’t fight for yourself.
