Mark Schuck is a persistent, detailed lawyer. Chosen to be the Chief Articles Editor of the Houston Law Review during law school, Mr. Schuck and his colleagues spent late nights looking for italicized commas and other minute errors while editing the journal. This penchant for honing in on the smallest of details has served him well as a lawyer.
The details matter in every lawsuit and every legal matter. Having a lawyer who excels at giving a truly close read to a contract or statute will help your company focus on what it does best.
Persistence and discipline also matter. Mr. Schuck has completed half-marathons and marathons as well as countless training runs of every distance in between. Training for long races and winning lawsuits both require a similar mindset—disciplined preparation. Mr. Schuck’s ability to stick with something and execute a plan over time keeps pressure on opponents and yields results for his clients.

Another attribute that a good lawyer needs? Experience. Mark Schuck has this, too. Having been in practice as a solo practitioner for most of his career, Mr. Schuck has first-chair jury trial experience and has used the breadth of the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure to obtain many other types of relief.

He has filed for pre-judgment writs of attachment, obtained temporary restraining orders as well as temporary and permanent injunctions, handled many garnishment suits against banks, and applied for and obtained a writ of sequestration. He even was handed an oilfield drill bit on his way out of the courtroom as a partial settlement in one of his earliest cases.
