Interview conducted by Tom Dyson and Christian Hill for The Palm Beach Letter on May 6th, 2011
Tom: How do I find a good lawyer?
Mark: Is that a trick question?
Mark: Well, let me ask you something. What do you call a good lawyer who’s gone bad?
Tom: But seriously…
Mark: No seriously, what do you call 5,000 dead lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?
Tom: A good start?
Mark: Okay, I’ll be serious now. A good lawyer is someone who doesn’t charge much.
Tom: That doesn’t sound like a serious answer.
Mark: But it is. What most people don’t understand about lawyers is that their primary business is billing you for all you are worth.
Tom: That’s pretty cynical.
Mark: Let me tell you a story.
