Representation of Law Firms and Attorneys
Mark has represented attorneys and law firms in a number of cases, and is available to do so in almost any context. His previous successes have made him a go-to source for attorneys being sued for conflict, misappropriation, disciplinary and other matters. Those successes include Zimmerman v. Epstein, Becker and Green, P.C., et al. (Federal Court of Appeals, 1st Circuit), where Mark won dismissal of a putative class action brought against the national law firm. The plaintiffs were seeking to impose a constructive trust over more than $256 million paid to the attorneys. The plaintiffs alleged that they were entitled to the funds under the federal Credit Repair Organizations Act. Agreeing with Mark’s position, the Court dismissed the action against Mark’s clients.
