Every Effort. Every Angle. Every Case.
To be a successful trial lawyer, you have to see things from every angle, understand the tactics used by the lawyers on the other side, and be prepared to leave no stone unturned to help your client obtain a successful outcome.
Those qualities are what define attorney Mark B. Gore’s approach to every case and every client. With over 25 years of diverse legal experience, a track record of successful results, and an absolute commitment to those he has the privilege to represent, Mark provides skilled and tenacious legal representation to individuals in Washington, D.C. and Northern Virginia who have been injured or are facing criminal charges.
Personal Injury: Knowing How Insurers Work and Knowing How to Win
In personal injury matters, Mark is able to turn the tables on insurance companies whose primary goal is to pay plaintiffs as little as possible or nothing at all. Before becoming a forceful advocate for the rights of injury victims, Mark spent years defending transportation companies and insurance companies against personal injury claims. That experience and insight gives his clients a distinct advantage – Mark knows how insurance companies think and how they work, and he knows how to beat them at their own game.
Mark understands that when an insurer sees a committed and thorough lawyer on the other side who is prepared to take a matter all the way to verdict, they are more likely to offer greater compensation to settle a case. Mark’s skills in the courtroom,honed over the course of hundreds of bench and jury trials, has earned him a reputation among colleagues, adversaries, and judges as a tenacious litigator who will do what it takes to get his clients the compensation and justice they deserve.
Criminal Defense: A Passion for Protecting His Clients’ Rights and Freedom
Passionate about defending the rights of those accused of criminal offenses, Mark knows that people sometimes make mistakes, and he knows that law enforcement and prosecutors make mistakes as well. Whether a client has been wrongfully accused or needs to minimize the consequences of an error in judgment, Mark fiercely protects his clients and works tirelessly to defeat criminal charges or get them reduced or dropped altogether.
Mark has defended clients against every kind of criminal charge, from misdemeanors to the most serious felonies, in both state and federal courts. He takes an aggressive approach and challenges prosecutors at every turn, whether in negotiations or in the courtroom. He knows that facing criminal charges and the possible consequences of a conviction is a scary experience. He stands by his clients every step of the way, fighting to protect their freedom and their future.
