Mark S. Haltzman joined Haltzman Law Firm, P.C. in 2023 in his role as Of Counsel to the firm.
Mark's educational background and "real world" business and legal experience makes him uniquely qualified to handle any business related matter, from simple corporate formation and contracts, to complex commercial litigation.
Mark's legal career started as an attorney with two of the largest Philadelphia law firms where he represented businesses from their initial formation, to the drafting of contracts and agreements, to complex mergers and acquisitions. After obtaining a Masters in Business Administration, Mark spent several years as an investment banker helping businesses arrange equity and debt financing. Thereafter, Mark took his vast business work and legal experience and expanded his area of legal practice from representing businesses in the formation and development of their businesses, to representing businesses in litigation matters. For the last 30 years, Mark has not only been a business attorney, but a "trial attorney." Mark's extensive business background provides him with a "competitive edge" in the representation of clients in litigation involving business matters.
Mark has gained a reputation as being an attorney that is able to creatively craft complex legal arguments in a manner which jurors can easily comprehend. As a result, Mark has been extremely successful in representing his business clients in a variety of business related litigation. Further, Mark's experience in litigating business disputes gives him the ability to draft, review and negotiate business documents so that, in the event litigation ever evolves out of the business relationship, his clients are properly positioned to be successful in such litigation. Recently, Mark gained national recognition for his successful representation of students who had claimed their privacy had been violated by the School's use of computer software that enabled the School to activate the student's webcam and take pictures, or capture a picture of whatever was on the student's computer screen (see Robbins v. Lower Merion School District).
Mark's broad range of legal experience includes commercial litigation, real estate, general corporate/transactional work, bankruptcy and creditors' rights, mergers and acquisitions, and banking. Mark represents clients in both federal and state courts in Colorado, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, as well as numerous other courts throughout the United States when his clients in other states require his services in Court. Mark has handled numerous jury, non-jury and arbitration matters, and, where appropriate, negotiated favorable settlements for clients even before initiation of a lawsuit. Mark has also represented individuals that have suffered severe and life altering injuries as the result of the negligence of individuals and businesses.
