Law FellowMark Dourmashkin
Mark is our own resident hero. While vacationing in Cabo, Mexico, an elderly man was knocked down by a wave and pulled out into the ocean by the current. Mark reacted quickly and brought the man to shore safely without either of them suffering injuries.
Besides being a good swimmer, Mark is a big baseball fan. He loves to go to games in the summer, his favorite movie is “The Sandlot,” and he was the Assistant Sports Editor for The College Reporter at Franklin and Marshall’s newspaper, where he received his Bachelor of Arts degree. In law school, he was president of the Sports Law and Entertainment Society, and he even competed in New Orleans at the International Baseball Arbitration Competition on behalf of the Moot Court Association.
Mark received his Juris Doctor degree from Columbus School of Law at The Catholic University of America. He also studied International Business in Copenhagen at the Danish Institute for Study Abroad. Recognized by his peers for his writing skills, he was Note and Comment Editor of the Journal of Law and Technology while in law school and published an article entitled, “Examining the Legalization of Daily Fantasy Sports.” He also interned for Judge John M. Maloney of the Montgomery County Circuit Court and worked for several firms before joining us at Spiggle Law Firm.
In his spare time, Mark loves to stay involved in the community. He has volunteered at the DC Pro Bono Small Business Legal Advice Clinic, and in Pennsylvania, he coordinated an after school program with local middle school students who were refugees.
On a more personal note, Mark’s favorite food is the buffalo chicken pizza at Ralph’s Pizzeria in Bayville, New York, and on vacation, he loves to visit Long Boat Key in Florida or Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire.
Around the office, people say Mark is upbeat and easy to talk to. He’s known for his strong analytical skills, as well as his compassion when working with our clients.
