Business Litigation Trial Attorney

Special Expertise in Contract Law

Decisive Business Counsel

Mark J. McGowan, Esq.

Mark J. McGowan is here to help your business ventures not only succeed but flourish, even in the face of adversity. He is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Stanford University (1981) and of Stanford Law School (1984). He is devoutly dedicated to providing each selected client with personal, caring counsel, attentive accessibility, diligent performance and quality service.

We had never been in a situation where we absolutely needed an attorney. But the time came when we did. Mark was recommended to us by work associates. From the very beginning at our first meeting, after listening to our explanations, Mark put us at ease with the words, “I want you to set your worries aside, I do this every day and I’m very good at what I do.” Those confidently spoken words did calm our concerns. Hopefully we will never need an attorney again but if we do it will be comforting to return to Mark once again. Just as he said during his first meeting, he is very good at what he does!
