Markham & Read


Markham Read Zerner LLC represents individuals and entities in civil and criminal actions in state and federal courts, before administrative agencies, and in school and college disciplinary proceedings throughout the United States. The firm, building on its 30-year private practice and the federal prosecutorial experience of its senior attorney, brings considerable knowledge and dedication to its representation of individuals and entities in investigations, negotiations, and litigation.

Markham Read Zerner is small by design. We work with clients to analyze the legal and factual issues confronting them and build on that understanding to develop a representation plan to meet the clients’ specific needs and goals. We either undertake representations at the outset of a dispute, substitute in as trial counsel when the case calls for it or prosecute appeals and other post-trial relief. Whenever we undertake a representation, we bring to it our personal attention, commitment to communication and responsiveness, and dedication to success. We offer competitive rates and alternative billing arrangements.
