Comments

  • “Mark is a sharp legal mind who is deeply committed to upholding the ethical standards of our profession. He works hard to get great results for his clients. Although we are seeing more and more attorneys rushing to settlement in order to maintain a high volume of cases, Mark has not succumbed to the trend. He understand's the true value of his clients' cases and will push to fight for his clients at trial in order to right the scales of justice. Mark has an excellent grasp on the law and has even set legal precedents in Missouri workers' compensation law. I have a great respect for his ability and his passion for injury victims.”
  • “Mark Cantor and Super Lawyer are synonymous. It's not typical to find a lawyer that can balance aggressive representation and attentive client service but Mark Cantor excels in both. Mark is the attorney every injured person should hope to have. He is an expert in the law and it shows at trial and in the millions of dollars he's obtained for his clients. He's the attorney that welcomes the opportunity for trial, not settling for a dime less than his clients deserve. He's the attorney that welcomes the challenge of difficult cases. And he's the attorney willing to mentor a young lawyer like myself.Mark Cantor is a Super Lawyer.”

These comments were made by fellow attorneys during the annual nomination process.
