Mark Braun is a native Midwesterner who has lived and practiced law in Las Vegas for more than 20 years. His calm, steady and thoughtful approach to helping people has resulted in a long, distinguished legal career. During his many years in Las Vegas, Mark (along with many others) has watched our city morph from the very last stages of the "Old Vegas" into the stunning world-class city it has now become. Like Las Vegas itself, he has stayed updated and always open to new, good, fresh ideas. Mark has had a laser- focus on estate planning, wills and trusts during the 35 years he has been an attorney and he is now exclusively handling estate planning, wills and trusts in association with Ford Friedman Law.
Mark formerly was a trust officer for a large bank and then he was in private practice for a number of years during which he drafted thousands of wills and trusts. For several years he hosted a local TV program devoted to answering people's questions about the law. His practice experience includes serving as a judicial hearing officer on behalf of the State Bar of Nevada involving cases of client complaints against lawyers for unethical practices. Following the 9-11 attack Mark gave up private practice for nearly five years and served as a Deputy Attorney General (Homeland Security; Department of Corrections Division) in Nevada. Since returning to private practice, Mark has continued to practice in the area of estate planning, wills and trusts.
In his off-time, Mark is an avid golfer who says he's still endlessly attempting to lower his handicap.
