Legal research and writing can be one of the most time-consuming and frustrating tasks in a law practice, especially for busy litigators who would rather be in court, meeting with potential new clients, or generating business to grow the practice.
If this sounds like you, I know exactly how you feel.
Extend your resources with a 30-year veteran of the Florida courts
My name is Mark Sussman and I’ve been a practicing lawyer for almost 30 years. The majority of my career, I operated as a solo practitioner. I’ve handled cases involving:
- Appellate issues.
- Real estate transactions;
- Commercial litigation;
- Personal injury;
- Probate litigation;
- Family law matters;
- Business and contracts;
I’ve spent many long nights preparing for trials and hearings, and even longer days juggling all the administrative, business development and client maintenance tasks. I know, first hand, the challenges solo practitioners and small law firms face.
If you could use an extra pair of hands, but aren’t ready to, or just don’t want to, hire associates—maybe you do not want to hassle with employment issues, make the financial commitment, or prefer to “keep it small and keep it all”—I can help.
These days, the focus of my law practice is strictly to serve as a resource to other attorneys, providing legal research, analysis, and writing of trial memos, pleadings, discovery, memoranda of law, appellate briefs, or any other legal documents you may require.
Save time, save money and make money with affordable, billable services
I perform the work and deliver complete documents, ready for your signature. With each project, I include an itemized statement so you can bill your client for the services I provide at your normal rate. Since my rate is affordable, typically on par with paralegal services, you not only save money and time, you make money.
Never worry about confidentiality or client poaching—you are the client
As an attorney, I understand the importance of confidentiality, so you never have to worry about breaching attorney/client privilege. I work as a member of your legal team. However, you are my client, and any contact with your client will be through you. Think of me as your “secret weapon.”
Impress the court with well-researched, well-documented, eloquent arguments
I recently heard a federal appellate judge state that lawyers with journalism backgrounds have the best writing skills because they know how to present the facts and legal argument of a case clearly and concisely.
Based upon my experience as a journalist, including a Master’s Degree in Journalism, my years of experience as an attorney, plus well over 40 appeals I have handled in my own practice, including a petition to the Supreme Court of the United States, I am confident I can provide a superior product to exceed your needs and expectations.

Regardless of whether you currently have a need, I invite you to contact me for a free, no-obligation consultation to discuss potential needs, current cases and legal strategy. Let’s get to know each other so when a need arises, we can jump right in and get started without delay.
P.S. When you call, be sure to ask about additional services. I also provide business development advice, legal administration planning, and career coaching services for young lawyers.
