Matthiesen, Wickert & Lehrer, S.C. (“MWL”) is pleased to welcome seasoned trial attorney Mark A. Solomon to the firm as a partner. Mark brings with him a wealth of litigation and insurance claims experience to MWL’s Austin, Texas office. After nearly ten years of litigating with two of Houston’s premier litigation firms, Mark joined Farmers Insurance Group as a trial attorney, litigating a large docket of large loss commercial property claims, homeowners’ claims, and automobile liability losses. In 2016, he became Supervising Attorney at Farmers, managing a team of seven attorneys, paralegals, and collection specialists throughout the country. He specialized in litigating matters for the national property subrogation group.
Mark is a Longhorn and boasts an undergraduate degree from the University of Texas – Austin and graduated from South Texas College of Law in Houston, Texas. He will be a welcome addition to the CE and subrogation training team at MWL and has for years conducted training and CE classes for subrogation professionals at Farmers and elsewhere. He is a long-time member of the National Association of Subrogation Professionals (NASP).
Mark was born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. In his free time, Mark enjoys spending time with his wife, Brennan, and their daughter, Sadie. He is an avid golfer and fisherman and enjoys attending Longhorn football games in the fall. Mark and his family enjoy traveling to new places and exploring the parks and green spaces throughout Austin. He is an avid gardener and tends to his diverse collection of plumeria plants he has collected, bred, and raised for the past ten years.
He believes strongly that “the person who says it cannot be done should not interrupt the person who is doing it.” With that attitude, he will be a perfect fit here at MWL.
Mark will be handling complex property and casualty subrogation along with workers’ compensation and automobile subrogation cases throughout Texas and across the country. We look forward to the vast amount of experience and insight Mark brings to the firm, and eagerly welcome him to our relatively new MWL Texas branch office, which is already out of space after being open for only a few months. Mark is a self-proclaimed perfectionist. His vast experience includes preparation and trial of cases in both state and federal court and his experience in large, complex property subrogation losses will provide welcome assistance to a burgeoning large loss property subrogation practice here at MWL. On behalf of the partners, associates, legal assistants, and support staff here at MWL, we would like to welcome Mark as its newest partner. We would also invite our clients and friends to introduce themselves to Mark, who can be reached at [email protected].
