Attorney Mark A. Casto is the founder and owner of The Mark Casto Law Firm in Columbus, Georgia. Serving plaintiff clients throughout Muscogee County and all across the state, Mr. Casto devotes his practice exclusively to personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death claims.

A highly rated trial advocate with more than 23 years of legal experience, Mr. Casto has achieved notable success fighting for the rights and interests of innocent accident victims and their families who are suffering from an injury or loss as the result of someone else's negligence. As a veteran of more than 50 jury trials, he has extensive experience handling cases involving tractor-trailer accidents, car accidents, defective products, dangerous property conditions, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and other tortious claims.

Along with practicing before all Georgia state courts, Mr. Casto is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Middle, Northern and Southern Districts of Georgia and the Northern District of Florida as well as before the Supreme Court of Georgia, the Court of Appeals of Georgia and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. As an appellate attorney, he has yet to lose an appeal where he argued before the court in person.

Highly active in his legal community, Mr. Casto is a member of several local, state and national bar associations, including the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the Columbus Bar Association and the Chattahoochee Trial Lawyers Association. He is also active with the trucking litigation and personal injury groups of the American Association for Justice, and he once served as president for the Chattahoochee Circuit Bar Association.
