Mark is an accomplished trial attorney and litigator with over 25 years of complex commercial litigation experience in trial and appellate courts around the country. Following graduation from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Mark moved to Philadelphia to attend law school. After graduating cum laude from Temple University School of Law and completing a judicial clerkship, he joined one of the city’s largest and most respected law firms – Blank Rome – as an associate. With his years of “big firm” training, he learned not just how to be a litigator but also how to be a trial lawyer. After being elected to the Blank Rome partnership, Mark decided to use his training and experience to break out of the restraints of a large firm and start litigating in a more entrepreneurial manner. He created RHOADES LLC to offer clients the highest caliber of legal services often times without cost to the client.  Mark has now brought his experience and expertise to Sklar Law, LLC.
