Mark Coriell, Esq.

Mark is a 2005 graduate of The Ohio State University’s Max M. Fisher College of Business with a Bachelors of Science in Accounting.  Before beginning his legal education at the Capital University Law School in August of 2005, Mark married his college sweetheart, Megan (Kurtzman) Coriell. With Megan’s support and commitment, Mark was able to have a successful law school career, including the privilege of serving on the school’s Law Review (a prestigious position reserved only for those students who have excelled in the school’s curriculum).  He graduated in the top 10% of his class, with honors, in 2008. Mark’s academic success also afforded him an opportunity to be selected for membership in American MENSA.

After graduation, Mark and Megan moved to Norwalk to start a family while Mark began his legal career.  Since then Mark has successfully built a practice complementary to Jeff’s and was named a partner in 2011.

Among other professional activities, Mark has been chosen on multiple occasions to present on the topic of business succession planning at continuing education events for other lawyers.

In his free time, he is a devoted father to his two children. He also enjoys traveling and SCUBA diving as well as cheering for the Buckeyes every Saturday in the Fall.
