Personal Injury Attorney
Mark Mizel grew up in Illinois and Tennessee before gravitating to Colorado for his love of the outdoors. Mark chose to study and practice law because he saw it as an interesting yet challenging profession that would always be changing and evolving. “It’s the perfect storm of interesting work and helping people,” he said.
Mark was drawn to personal injury law for the same reason many of his colleagues chose the field. “Helping people is probably the expected answer,” he said. “But, for me, it’s true. You have people who are hurt and scared. They can’t work, and they’ve got all the power, wealth and influence of an insurance company opposing them every step of the way, and so they need somebody to step up and fight for them.” Mark is proud to be that person.
Mark works with each of his clients to make sure they understand the legal process. “I’m really big on trying to educate the clients,” he said. “I want them to understand not only what we’re doing, but why we’re doing it. I really take as much time as I need to educate them about what to expect and when to expect it.”
Mark chose the McDivitt Law Firm because of the work atmosphere. He said the attorneys and staff all work well together and help each other out more than in other firms where he has worked. “I’ve yet to see any drama in the office,” he said, “which is good. There’s enough drama in the law as it is.”
