Mark is a trusted trial attorney with over 20 years of experience representing clients in all phases of litigation. He routinely takes on difficult cases in an effort to secure justice for individuals who have been injured due to others’ carelessness. Throughout his career at Atlee Hall, Mark has made it a priority to right wrongs that have been done to bring closure and allow his clients to move forward.
While clients come to us during some of the most difficult times in their lives, it is in part through the litigation process and holding wrongdoers accountable for their actions, that injured individuals gain back control. Through clients’ strength, bravery and perseverance, they are able to reclaim what they have lost due to no fault of their own. Mark finds it immensely fulfilling to empower a client to take back control and to reach for and attain the potential that he or she always had and will continue to have moving forward.
Mark brings a unique perspective to Atlee Hall and its cases. Having worked for a number of years at a prestigious medical malpractice defense firm in New York, he knows firsthand what it is like to represent defendants, including doctors and hospitals. This allows him to analyze a case from the other side’s perspective, anticipating the defenses and, more importantly, developing a successful strategy to counteract and combat those defenses. In addition, because Mark initially worked at a defense firm, representing in excess of one-hundred clients at any given time, he understands the value of taking on a limited number of cases in order to devote the necessary time and attention to each case. He strives to build a personal connection with each client and understand what he or she is going through, which enables him to provide the best representation possible.
Since joining the firm as a partner in 2007, Mark has successfully represented clients in a wide variety of cases, including medical malpractice, products liability, automobile crashes, train crossing accidents and trucking cases. He has secured numerous seven-figure settlements for clients over the course of his career.
Over the course of his career, Mark has engaged in pro bono work. Mark has represented clients in work-related discrimination claims arising out of their religious beliefs. He has lectured in the area of Medical Malpractice and Trial Advocacy at PBI continuing legal education seminars. He also served on the Board of The Stone Independent School during its inception and founding.
Mark earned his law degree from New York Law School, magna cum laude. His passion for law came from his father, William Atlee, Founding Partner of Atlee Hall. He is licensed to practice law in both Pennsylvania and New York.
