Litigation

Founded as a litigation firm in 1963, our attorneys carry on our tradition of substantial deposition and courtroom experience, with hands-on training that begins early in every attorney’s career. The litigation department is the largest practice area at Wallace Saunders, with more than half of our attorneys working under the Litigation Practice Area umbrella.

This makes them vulnerable to professional liability lawsuits. Choosing the right attorney to defend such lawsuits is critical. Additionally, the best defense against professional liability claims begins before a claim ever gets filed.

Personal

Mark doesn’t know how to slow down. He’s always on the go with his family, including his two children. He likes to unwind by reading a good book, getting caught up in politics, and taking in new films. In fact, Mark once worked as the director of photography and cameraman for a local independent filmmaker.
