Mark comes to the firm with vast experience in New York’s Workers Compensation Law. He spent eleven years representing insurance carriers and self- insured employers in Workers’ Compensation claims.

Outside of work, Mark’s time is spent with his wife, Joanne, and their two sons in their numerous athletic and school activities.
