Mark is a native resident of Northern Utah, where he saw his first jury trial at the age of twelve. From that time, Mark knew that he wanted to work in our country’s great justice system.
After completing law school at the University of Utah, Mark worked for several years with the Garretson Law Firm and Resolution Group – a nationwide firm specializing in the just resolution of large settlement claims – where he became the lead attorney on employment health insurance recovery and protecting the hard-earned healthcare rights of injury survivors in large-scale settlements.
In that role, Mark quickly became recognized as a national authority on private health insurance, as well as Medicare and Medicaid rights. He was invited to publish articles on those topics in leading legal publications and train other attorneys around the country to protect their clients’ healthcare coverage when they needed it most.
After several years, Mark found himself increasingly away from his family and spending more time in the boardroom than the courtroom. In 2009, Siegfried & Jensen approached him with the opportunity to join their firm, where he could focus his legal practice in his home state of Utah and work directly with clients and their families. This allowed Mark to spend more time with his family and dedicate himself to helping those who need it most.
In 2010, Mark joined the team of Siegfried & Jensen attorneys who had been appointed as Special Assistant Attorneys General. The Attorney General selected this team to assist the State of Utah in recovering money from drug companies caught abusing and defrauding the State’s Medicaid program and cheating Utah’s taxpayers.
The State’s solicitor general specifically appointed Mark to draft the appellate briefing on those cases before the Supreme Court. This resulted in a unanimous decision from that court in favor of the State and its taxpayers, strengthening Utah’s ability to fight Medicaid fraud, and recovering tens of millions of dollars from those companies that have cheated Utah citizens.
A believer in government fiscal responsibility and the fight against unnecessary waste, Mark is proud to take part in this effort.
