WHAT SETS US APART?
Many of our services are tailored to meet the planning and transactional needs of our clients. As compared to many other law offices, our practice can be largely managed without being at the mercy of a court's docketing schedule. It's good for our clients because we're able to maintain maximum flexibility to react quickly to various situations as they arise. We know our clients expect us to be there for them - so we make it a priority.
All attorneys can't be excellent in all practice areas - it's just not possible in today's ever-changing legal and regulatory environment. For that reason, we've focused our energies on estate planning, small business transactions, real estate and probate. We believe a focus that is narrower than the general practitioner will enable us to provide more value to our clients.
We see all our clients as people rather than "files" or "cases" that have some type of built-in expiration date. If we stopped caring at the conclusion of a project, you'd always wonder whether we did everything we could possibly do to achieve the best outcome, or just the outcome that would be best for us. We' don't operate like that - we care about long-term decades-long relationships with our clients. We believe that it is impossible to develop that type of relationship without caring about the individual, regardless of the legal project at hand.
I believe in kindness, humility, and integrity. My legal practice is about helping families and business people plan for the future, take advantage of opportunities, and solve problems. But in many ways, it is also about changing the perception of what it means to work with an attorney. One of the most rewarding parts of the job is when a client tells me that working with me and my staff was completely different than what they'd expected.
When I'm not working, I'm all about family. My wife Megan and I relocated to Norwalk from Columbus in 2008 to make our home and start a family. Raising our children in this community has been (and continues to be) an absolute joy. We both grew up in rural, small towns in Ohio and wanted the same experience for our children.

"Simply put, my business with this office was a pleasure. They were honest, hard-working, professional and went above and beyond for me. I was treated with respect throughout a difficult time and process. I am very grateful for their service."
Surviving Spouse, Executrix & Beneficiary
"I highly recommend Mark Coriell, LPA. He and his staff are professional and caring. Mark took care of my parents' estate and my husband's. At a very difficult time in my life, he took care of the legal details. It was comforting at a time when so many decisions have to be made that I knew I was in good hands. Thank you to Mark and his staff."
