An experienced appellate attorney, Mark persuaded the Rhode Island Supreme Court to deny a claim of a firefighter who was injured while assisting a nurse subdue an unruly patient at a hospital.

In medical malpractice cases, Mark has successfully resolved cases on behalf of clients through summary judgment, dismissal, and settlement. He is experienced in various forms of alternative dispute resolution, and has also obtained arbitration defense verdicts involving premises liability matters.
