What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Here are some testimonials from our clients:

The Mark law Firm is a professional firm that fights for the best outcome for their clients in any legal situation. The Mark Law firm alleviated a majority of my stress, kept me involved and in the end, obtained a great result for me. The lawyers are always there, they return phone calls and emails, and answer all of your legal questions adequately. Jamison Mark personally dealt with all of my legal issues, yet kept me involved during the entire process. I would highly recommend Jamison and the Mark Law Firm to anyone seeking a top notch attorney.
-KT

I think that the Mark Law firm did a great job handling my case. Jamison Mark and his crew were there always to help with questioned I needed to know or didn't understand. Overall I was more than happy with the outcome of my case. I would highly recommend anyone that needs an Attorney, to the Mark Law Firm.
-EB

Thank you Mark Law Firm for helping companies realize that they really need to check the quality of their workers. Background and integrity and personality checks need to be done on employees so they can hopefully weed out the bad employees such as the one who sexually harassed me at my job. I believe that if thorough tests were done on her, she would not have did this to hurt me. Even though I am in therapy still, the Firm helped let this temp agency know to triple check their temporary staff to be placed.
-James Longstreet

I was very happy and satisfied with my representation by the Mark Law firm. Everyone I met in the firm was professional, friendly, kind and in some cases, kind of quirky, which made it for a pleasant atmosphere in a nervous situation. The firm worked hard for a good resolution for my case and I appreciate it. I highly recommend the Mark Law Firm.
-RL

Thank you for all your help! The professionalism practiced by Jamison and his team was above expectation. I knew that I was being represented by a quality team of lawyer when Jamison came to my home state for my initial consultation! It showed the care and dedication that his team offers clients. I was truly pleased with his staff and their commitment to my case. I was well informed throughout the whole process. I definitely felt take care of. Thanks again to Jamison, Stephanie and Jessica.
-B. Hickman

I sincerely appreciate the Firm's help in my case. While other attorneys gave up hope on my wrongful termination case, Mr. Mark provided me with hope, excellent service , legal help, guidance and provided a very, very satisfactory result. Mr. Mark communicated with me via emails and phone clearly and professionally. I am very, very satisfied with the law Firm's help in resolving my case and the outcome of my case in terms of financial settlement was more than I had expected. Thank you for all your help, excellent service, legal advice, and prompt service.
-A.D.

I am 100% satisfied with the handling of my case by the Mark Law Firm. I am also satisfied by the way the entire staff handled my calls and questions, and kept Mr. Mark and myself in the loop with each other throughout the many stages of my case. They are truly a great team. I would definitely refer the Mark Law Firm to anyone that is in need of a lawyer for any future incidents.

Jamison Mark, Esq.

My Early Years

I was born and raised in Iowa, in a small town outside Des Moines. There, I learned a good moral foundation -- how to be a solid person and treat people right! I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Iowa State University with double majors in Political Science and Psychology. At Iowa State I also lettered in varsity track, competed as an Academic All-Big 8 Athlete, and won scholarships. After completing my undergraduate studies, I moved to the east coast for law school. I earned my Juris Doctor (law) degree from Widener University School of Law in Wilmington, Delaware.

I was privileged to begin my legal career at the Delaware Department of Justice as an Assistant Deputy Attorney General for the State of Delaware. In only 18 months, I tried 12 jury trials and over 60 non-jury trials. In 2001 I left Delaware and moved to New Jersey. I am currently licensed to practice in the State of New Jersey and the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.

My New Jersey Legal Career

I started my career in New Jersey working at defense firms, which allowed me to learn the law as it applies to employers and defendants. These experiences provided me with real insight on how to represent clients and how not to represent my clients that I keep with me in my current practice.

I have represented employees and citizens of this state against multi-million dollar companies, as well as state and local municipal government. In doing so, I have zealously provided representation to clients whose rights have been violated, and have prosecuted all types of matters, including:

New Jersey Civil Rights violations, 42 U.S.C. 1983 and 1985
Employment-related claims, including claims under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (LAD), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), wage and hour and prevailing wage violations, Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA), wrongful termination, breach of contract, defamation and infliction of emotional distress
Representation of clients who have been injured on the job in workers' compensation proceedings
Residential real estate closings (buyer & sellers), condominium representation, landlord tenant disputes
Collections matters
Municipal court traffic and DWI matters
Expungements
Wills and trusts
Small business formation
Personal injury cases, including slip-and-fall, auto accidents, animal attacks, intentional assaults, and more.
I was born in the midwest, and I bring to my representation a refreshing feel of honesty and communication. I do not talk down to my clients, or neglect them by disregarding their questions or concerns; instead, I try to speak to them as one human being should do to another. I truly love my job -- I may be one of the few attorneys you will ever meet who says that! I live by the philosophy: "Love what you do, and you'll never work a day in your life."

Who I Am

I live in a great community here in New Jersey where I am actively involved in the welfare of the community, the people and my family and friends. I am a member of the Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary club, and my church. I've coached baseball, softball, and soccer. I'm involved with gymnastics, cheerleading and anything else in which my kids become involved. My wife and I met in high school, went to college together, have been married over 20 years, and plan to grow old together. We have three beautiful daughters who, as I accept, run my life!

I live and practice law by the theory that if you "do right by people you will do well." I explain in detail to my clients what is going on and how the case is progressing, and I give options. I have integrity, high standards, morals and honesty. I am a caring and skilled attorney who has earned respect from my colleagues as well as my adversaries.

I am here to help. I will offer an honest and fair evaluation of your case right up front. I will tell you, honestly, if I believe your case is worth pursuing or if there is an alternative to a lawsuit which may provide you with closure in your situation. I treat you like I would treat my own grandfather, my mother, my wife and my children. To me, you are more than a client.
