Mark Lish is a native of North Texas. He graduated from Texas A&M in May 1985 with a Bachelor of Science in Journalism and went on to attend Texas Tech University School of Law where he was a published member and Case Note Editor of the Texas Tech Law Review. After graduating from Law School in May of 1989, he accepted a position as an associate in the Business Section of Vial, Hamilton, Koch & Knox in Dallas, where he practiced corporate, business and real estate law before establishing Lish Law Firm in the summer of 1994.
Now, more than thirty (30) since he first began practicing law, Mark still thrives on the challenges and demands associated with representing the Firm's clients in complex commercial, real estate, and technology-related transactions, but enjoys helping individuals and couples with their estate planning and probate needs, as well. He takes pride in his work and the flexibility that working for himself affords when deciding how to best serve the Firm's clients and to meet their needs, and thrives on the day-to-day interactions and relationships with clients and colleagues. Mark also enjoys working with and supporting non-profit organizations like Mentor's Care, a Texas non-profit corporation which provides mentors for underprivileged, at-risk high school students throughout North Texas.
