Mark Hurt is a native Bristolian who obtained his undergraduate degree from University of Virginia in 1981. He obtained his law degree from Duke University, graduating in the top ten percent of his class. Prior to returning to the Tri-Cities, Mark practiced with large litigation law firms in Dallas, Texas, and Washington, D.C.
Mark has extensive litigation experience, including trying cases in front of a jury, and arguing appeals, in Virginia, Tennessee and federal courts. He has argued twice before the nine justices of the United States Supreme Court.
Mark has also successfully reached settlements for his clients in dozens of cases, ranging from multimillion dollar settlements to small fender-bender cases involving a few thousand dollars.
I’m proud to have been able to make a difference in the lives of clients at a time when they need it the most – when they or a family member has been injured, when facing a serious charge, such as reckless driving, or when needing to make critical decisions about providing for the distribution of their estate. I’m also proud to help contribute to the success of small businesses by helping them address legal matters to advance their company.
Regardless of a client’s matter, I understand the trust given to me and my firm to use our best efforts to help towards achieving their objectives. In personal injury litigation, this means being relentless in seeking full compensation from all those responsible for injuries. In business and other matters, this means using more than 25 years of business experience and legal practice in developing cost-effective solutions consistent with client objectives.
If you are in need of legal counsel, please call me – I would look forward to learning about your matter, and explaining how I and my firm can help.
