Mark Levinson is an Attorney at Law who specializes in family law matters. He helps clients through the process of divorce including custody, spousal support, child support, and division of assets and debts. He also drafts prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.

Practicing Family Law with 40 years of experience

Mark Levinson's 40 year career in law began with a variety of civil litigation experience. His practiced areas including construction, business, and school board litigation, as well as personal injury and toxic torts. To further his experience he sought a change and accepted the challenge of engaging in a new field of law, family law, which he's been practicing for over 20 years. He also had the pleasure of teaching two family courses at Valley College – one to Legal Secretaries and one to Paralegals. The hallmark of his practice is close and continuing client contact to assure his clients have all of the pertinent information regarding their divorce and to keep them advised of all aspects of their case.

Unfortunately divorce is typically not a pleasurable experience for the parties involved. Therefore what makes Mark Levinson a requested advocate is his ability to explain the process in an easy and understandable way while aggressively representing his clients' interests. His passion for making sure that kids are not directly involved in the dispute between their parents, makes him a highly sought after counselor. Overall he tries to ease the tension and make this process as painless as possible.

To most effectively support his clients in the usually difficult process of divorce, the three most important things Mark provides his clients are:

Explaining timeframes and other factors to set realistic client expectations and goals. This provides an understanding the steps and procedures that take place as the case progresses towards either a trial or a settlement.

Answering questions about the parties involved, their mutual responsibilities to each other, and to the community. Responding to concerns about travel, education, medical care, and other child related issues.

Helping clients prioritize their needs, consider the potential change of financial conditions, and the impact that the entire divorce is having on their children. Encourage parents to focus on avoiding involving the kids in the divorce process, but concentrate the efforts on their wellbeing.

All of these are essential to the resolution of their litigation and to allow them to move forward with their lives.
