The Leadership Our City Needs Right Now
A letter from Mark
I graduated from Capital University Law School in 2003, with highest honors. While in law school, I was able to intern with several firms, which allowed me to gain experience in the practice areas of criminal defense and civil litigation. Shortly after graduating, I became a partner in a firm where I devoted most of my practice to criminal law and ended up trying my first jury trial just a month after becoming licensed. I have been in private practice for several years and have managed my own law firm in the German Village area since 2014. I have represented clients from all walks of life and from all different ages, races and backgrounds. I represent a diverse clientele, many of whom have struggled with drug addiction, substance abuse, mental health and other personal issues.
I have tried dozens of criminal jury trials throughout central Ohio in municipal and common pleas courts. In additional to criminal jury trials, I have litigated civil cases, participated in depositions, mediations, and settlements. You can find me in the Franklin County Municipal Court just about every day, and I pride myself on the kind of broad experience I will bring to the bench. Also, I have argued numerous appellate cases in several courts, including the Ohio Supreme Court.
I believe I am qualified for the Franklin County Municipal Court because of my 18 years of litigation experience and familiarity with the court. Since I became licensed to practice law in 2003, I have stepped inside the municipal court just about every day. I have handled hundreds of municipal court cases and have tried cases there. I know how the court works, and while there is always something new to learn, I am confident that if elected, I will be prepared to take the bench on day one.
Further, as part of my law practice, I have represented clients from diverse backgrounds, each with a different life story. Based on my unique professional experience, I believe I am qualified to listen to everyone who walks into my courtroom, keep an open mind, apply the law, and to administer justice in a fair and balanced way. Also, of great importance is to treat all litigants and parties with respect. I kindly ask for your support this November.
