Partner Mark Weitz Named Insurance Commissioner of The Modoc Nation

The firm is proud to announce Partner Mark A. Weitz’s appointment as Insurance Commissioner of The Modoc Nation.

In addition to his practice in healthcare law and civil litigation, Mark has a long history as an insurance law attorney.
