Mark E. Rollison
Mark E. Rollison was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. The second son of Howard and Joan Rollison, he was raised on traditional family values and taught at an early age that through hard work, you can achieve your life goals. Today, he continues to reside in Baltimore with his wife, Molly, and their five children.
From his earliest days of education, Mr. Rollison became comfortable and confident in front of large groups of people as an active member of his Church community as an Altar Server and a member of the Church Choir. Mr. Rollison attended Archbishop Curley High School, where the family values of hard work and discipline that were instilled in him by his parents were reinforced, as he learned the necessary skills for critical thinking and logical argument. It was at Curley that he was exposed to a general law class that gave him just a taste of what a career in the legal community could accomplish.
After earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Paralegal Studies at Villa Julie College (now Stevenson University) in 1995, Mr. Rollison began working for the Law Offices of Peter G. Angelos. At Mr. Angelos’ office, he worked as a litigation paralegal assisting attorneys in all aspects of trial work on Asbestos Class Action lawsuits. It was while assisting the attorneys in preparation for trial and at trial that Mr. Rollison was given the opportunity to see firsthand what an attorney could accomplish for his/her clients in a courtroom.
Mr. Rollison enrolled in Widener University School of Law where he built on his practical litigation experience and obtained an excellent legal education that focused on litigation. While attending Widener, Mr. Rollison was a member of the Moe Levine Trial Advocacy Honor Society and actively represented clients in the Criminal Defense Clinic. Through his experience with the clinic, Mr. Rollison discovered just how tenuous our civil rights can be when accused of committing criminal acts. This prompted him to adopt an adage of criminal representation, “you defend the person, not the crime.” This belief has helped Mr. Rollison to effectively advocate for his clients while protecting them from the many potential abuses of the system that can violate their rights.
Mr. Rollison ultimately earned his Juris Doctorate Degree from Widener University in 2001, passed the Maryland State Bar Exam, and was admitted to the Maryland State Bar in December 2001. He began to practice at a small law firm in Baltimore County representing clients who were victims of automobile and work-related accidents in the District, Circuit, and Administrative Courts.
After working for several law firms, Mr. Rollison started his own solo practice in May of 2008. He rented a one room office from a fellow attorney and friend on Harford Road. His practice was built on his core belief of service to others. Mr. Rollison continued to represent clients in the areas of personal injury, workers compensation and criminal law. Mark came to a point where he wanted to bring his experience to our team. He is now in our Maryland office with a practice focus on Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice/Negligence.
