Mark has practiced law in the Lehigh Valley for almost 30 years. He has assisted non-profit organizations in all kinds of legal matters, including by way of example with respect to their formation, in obtaining state and federal tax-exempt status, in board governance matters, and in reorganizations and mergers, and has served as borrower’s counsel in connection with several tax-exempt, bond and New Markets Tax Credit financings. Mark has counseled numerous small businesses in the formation and start-up phase (including the preparation of creation documents and shareholder and limited liability operating agreements), as well as with respect to ongoing legal matters.
Mark currently serves on the Board of Directors and as Secretary of the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations (PANO).

Greater Good has been a dream of Mark’s for many years. Tom Petty’s unexpected passing in fall 2017 was another reminder that one should not continually put off one’s dreams. So in case you need further inspiration to “run down your dream”, please enjoy this Tom Petty classic.
