Mark's reputation for thorough preparation is matched by his commitment to client communication. "Responsible, effective advocacy hinges on it," he says. "Goals, strategies, and circumstances can evolve over the course of a case, so it's essential that my clients and I remain on the same page at all times."
As a member of Hellmuth & Johnson's litigation practice, Mark handles a variety of civil litigation matters for individuals, businesses, and municipalities. Across practice areas, he focuses on successful resolution, with an emphasis on defending insurance claims and disputes in cases involving civil rights, employment, personal injury, and commercial issues.
Clients are well-served by the breadth of Mark's experience. "My extensive experience gives me a broader perspective and impacts the way I prepare for cases by enabling me to me see further down the road and develop a wider range of approaches and strategies," he says. "That in turn makes me a better problem solver — and more powerful advocate — for my clients."
Mark is admitted to practice in the United States District Courts for Minnesota and for the Eastern and Western Districts of Michigan, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and the Tribal Court for the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe.
Mark earned his Juris Doctor cum laude from the Western Michigan University Cooley Law School. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Speech Communications.
