Mark T. Abell is an Associate practicing with the Litigation practice group, focusing primarily on general litigation. He practices out of the Firm's office in Evansville, Indiana.
Mark is a firm believer in a bottom-up approach to life, both professionally and personally. There is simply no replacement for getting your hands dirty and learning the intricacies of each and every facet of work or personal relationship. After working as a Firm court runner in the summer of 2018, Mark entered law school and began clerking for a small family law practice, dealing primarily with high-conflict custody, high-asset dissolution, child services, and firearm permit denial actions.
While learning the ins and outs of how a law practice functions, Mark was also able to participate in drafting multiple appeals and engaged with clients on a daily basis. Mark truly loves people, seeking to learn their stories and help them through any problems life throws their way. Ask anyone who knows Mark, and they will tell you he is the ultimate extrovert and willing to lend a hand at any hour.
Mark attended law school at the Robert H. McKinney School of Law in Indianapolis, Indiana, earning his Juris Doctor a semester early after finishing his studies remotely while working as a Summer Associate and then Law Clerk in the Firm’s Evansville office. Priding himself on his ability to empathize and adapt, Mark has risen through the ranks going from “low-man on the totem pole” to practicing attorney. Mark is also a burgeoning writer, having served as a writing tutor to law students and as a contributor and legal researcher for a published book, Gun Laws By State (2020 and 2021 editions).
When Mark is away from the office, he enjoys playing chess, reading and writing on a number of political issues, rooting for the Chicago Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks, fine tuning his aim at a shooting range, and engaging in local events. If you are ever at an event in downtown Evansville, be sure to look for him. It's one of his favorite things to do.
