Mark A. Skeldon
Mark was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. Graduate of The University of Toledo with a Bachelor of Education and Juris Doctorate from The University of Toledo College of Law, graduating cum laude. While in law school, Mark served in the College of Law Legal Clinic, providing high-quality legal services to the community with mentorship from practicing attorneys, prosecutors, and judges. Mark focuses his practice on personal injury law, including complex injury cases against individuals and corporate defendants.
Prior to his law career, Mark taught for ten years in the central city of Toledo. Mark’s tenure with Toledo Public Schools allowed him to earn an advanced understanding of disparity and access to necessary social service resources within the community. The experience, and his drive to make a difference, formed his philosophy of the practice of law. “I view myself as an educated advocate. My knowledge and experience allow me to navigate a system that would be difficult or impossible for clients to navigate on their own. I want my clients to have all the available information to make the best decision possible for themselves. Sometimes that involves going to battle with insurance companies or defense attorneys, and other times it involves me having a tough conversation with a client. I am willing and able to do both.”
Mark is a member of The University of Toledo Family Business Center, American Bar Association, Ohio State Bar Association, Toledo Bar Association, and Ohio Association for Justice.
Mark lives in Perrysburg with his wife Jen and daughters. He enjoys time with his family and friends, rooting for the Detroit Lions, Pistons, and Tigers, exploring new music, and improving his golf game.
We had the pleasure of working with Mark Skeldon at Zychowicz Skeldon. From the first call to the last, he was there to help. He worked with us to set expectations and, through the negotiation process, kept us informed. The outcome exceeded what we were hoping for, and truly thank him for all of his efforts.
Mark helped me with a hit-and-run case. The driver who hit me was driving a company car. Despite repeated requests for insurance information, the company refused to name their insurance provider. I had damage to my car and had started accumulating medical bills. Within hours, Mark was able to get in touch with their insurance company and they admitted responsibility. Throughout the treatment of my injuries, Mark was helpful, knowledgeable and supportive and he fought for a fair settlement.
Mark Skeldon is honest, loyal and fair. Mark helped my husband and me with a case that could have been dragged out and messy. Instead, he was sensitive to our needs and what we were seeking. He worked hard to negotiate a fair and reasonable outcome that both parties were satisfied with. If you are looking for an attorney who will listen and approach your situation with integrity and fairness, I highly recommend Mark and this law firm.
Mark is a knowledgeable, thorough, and professional attorney. He takes time to clearly explain information and answer questions. Mark is the first person I would call if legal expertise was needed.
Mark Skeldon was professional, helpful, and fair throughout our entire process with an accident with an out-of-state driver. He kept us abreast the entire time and always took the time to answer any questions. He helped us understand the process, took care of reaching out to all the medical providers, and simply went above and beyond in every way. We wanted to have everything settled fairly, and Mark did just that.
