    Learn to Invest Free of Commissions or Wrap Fees 

    Since 1987, Mark has served valued clients as a financial consultant, first at Paine Webber where he was awarded National Rookie of the Year as well as Best in the West Honors for highest production level among first-year brokers throughout the Western United States, ultimately reaching the position of Vice President – Investments.

    In 1994, he was recruited by Merrill Lynch where he was Masters Award winner several years, and in 2001 he continued exceptional service to his clients at LPL Financial, the nation’s leading independent source for financial services, all the while primarily practicing law.

    Since 2020, Mark has gone fully independent, no longer beholden to any investment firm, providing his decades of legal expertise and decades of financial consulting and wealth management expertise in investments (e.g., mutual funds, stocks, bonds, ETFs, CDs), charging only an hourly rate for the time devoted to your behalf (no commissions or wrap fees) to provide a customized, personal investing tutorial, investment training and counsel to minimize cost by learning how to better invest free of commissions and fees.
