Mark T. Butler, P.C. is based in Clinton Township, the seat of Macomb County. While Mr. Butler has represented clients throughout the State of Michigan, the majority of his cases are before the state and federal courts in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw Counties. His clients range from individuals and small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.
Over the course of his career, Mr. Butler has worked in law firms of all sizes and thus can offer clients the experience and skill of a big firm with the personal service and efficiency of a small firm.
A central precept of Mr. Butler's practice is that litigation should never be undertaken — either as plaintiff or defendant — without the attorney and client first agreeing upon a clearly defined business purpose and realistic exit strategy. Without such a plan, litigation can take on a life of its own, causing the client to incur exorbitant costs while achieving none of the objectives. The development of a sound litigation plan is the first step in each and every case we accept.
