Mark began his legal career clerking for a Federal Judge who had been a master trial attorney before taking the bench.
In this position he observed a wide disparity in the skill levels of trial attorneys and gained invaluable insight into the difference between truly effective advocacy and overly zealous representation.
Thereafter, he tried his first case to a successful verdict and has been trying civil jury and court-side cases ever since.
Currently, Mark’s clients are primarily C-Suite executives and financial sector employees who are seeking counsel either at the time they are starting a new position, or in their severance negotiations.
Deciding to embark on a lawsuit is a decision with significant financial and emotional consequences. Mark is an advocate of taking this step only as a last resort and then only in the appropriate instances. Ideally, the lawyer you trust to represent you should be an excellent listener, a gifted writer, a strategic thinker, and comfortable and talented in a courtroom.
Mark now serves on the Board of Silvermine Guild of Artists. Among his many other community commitments, he was one of the original five founders of A Better Chance of Wilton – a non-profit corporation that provides a superior educational opportunity to minority high school scholars.
He served as its President for two years, and has been its legal counsel and a member of its Executive Committee for 20 years. The program has grown from three students to 14 and has graduated over 50 scholars from Wilton High School.
