Mark's father was injured on the job several times during his career as an iron worker. Two of Mark's brothers had career ending work accidents involving knee and neck injuries.

Mark and his staff understand that the laws that apply to injury claims are complex. From our first meeting, we educate our clients about their rights as well as their responsibilities.
Mark and his staff approach each claim by putting themselves in the "shoes" of their clients they represent. We understand the importance of obtaining prompt quality medical care for our clients and ensuring the timely delivery income benefits as well as recovering the best settlement possible.
