Mark's practice focuses on estate planning, tax planning, business planning, estate and trust administration and real estate, including planned charitable giving. Mark has been called a "natural born teacher," who spends about half of his time with his clients listening to their needs. He then details each estate planning option and helps his clients understand and plan the best course of action to achieve their goals. He believes that wealth should not be a wedge that drives family members apart.

Mark holds the Accredited Estate Planner designation from the National Association of Estate Planners & Councils, and an A-V (highest) peer rating from Martindale-Hubbell.

Mark loves the law and enjoys explaining how estate planning and administration work not only to clients, but to paralegals, lawyers and other professionals working in related fields such as insurance and investments.

Mark has been a continuing education lecturer and program planner for Colorado attorneys since 1992. He was awarded the Doyle Award of Excellence in 2008 by CLE, Inc. of the Colorado Bar Association for his contributions to continuing legal education and publications. Mark is an adjunct faculty member of the Paralegal Department of Arapahoe Community College and a Lab Instructor for the University of Denver College of Law.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
