Mark handled his first divorce cases in the mid-1980s as a law clerk while in law school. After becoming a lawyer in 1987, Mark moved back to Seattle, where he worked on business, construction, tax, real estate, estate planning, and family law matters. Over time, divorce and family law became Mark’s main focus and he earned an excellent reputation in the courtroom and at the negotiating table. Mark’s experience includes most everything that arises in divorce and family law, including complex issues in parenting, business and real estate, and finance.

He enrolled in classes and did the necessary work to build skills and gain experience assisting clients to reach agreements outside the legal system. In January 2007, Mark finished his last family law trial to become a full-time Collaborative Divorce lawyer and divorce mediator. He now works exclusively to help clients reach agreements without court intervention. Mark also added a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® certification to better help clients address important financial questions for their futures.
