Insurance Defense

Construction Defect

Mark joined MacMillan, Scholz, and Marks in 2022, bringing his diligent attention to detail and deliberate writing style to his insurance defense practice. Mark is often held captive by his innate curiosity and a compulsion to complete puzzles, both of which have served him well in his professional life.

Mark came to the Pacific Northwest the long way around. A New Orleans native, he worked as an educator in Washington, DC, and a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Republic of Moldova before starting as a law student in Cleveland, Ohio. During law school, he served as an editor and contributor to the Case Western Reserve Law Review. Mark also worked as a law clerk and Certified Legal Intern for the Milton A. Kramer Law Clinic Center and as a judicial extern for Magistrate Judge Maarten Vermaat in the District Court for the Western District of Michigan.

He is glad to now call Portland his home.
