Spotlight on Top Attorney: Mark Breyer of Arizona's Husband and Wife Law Team
Avvo, Inc. - the Seattle company that helps consumers make better health and legal decisions by offering free Q&A forums, backed by ratings and profiles for 90 percent of the doctors and lawyers in the U.S. - has teamed up with North Valley Magazine to present this list of top lawyers in the Phoenix area. Lawyers are ranked based on their professional backgrounds according to Avvo's proprietary algorithms. The Avvo Rating is a score on a 10-point scale distilled from the raw rankings generated by Avvo. The ratings and rankings were calculated in August, 2011 and 2012. Mark Breyer was ranked the Top Personal Injury Attorney.
Question: Congratulations on being named one of the top personal injury lawyers.
Answer: Thank you.
Question: How did you react when you heard the news that you had been singled out to receive such an honor?
Answer: To be honest, I was more happy not just for me but for my wife and law partner - and the real brains of this operation - Alexis Breyer. I was also really happy to be able to tell our staff. I think they take a lot of pride in these types of awards because they know that it is a reflection of our entire team.
Question: You have achieved a long list of accomplishments and awards. Where does this one rank?
Answer: That's a tough question. Some of the things that we have been recognized for include specific successes on large cases. Other times we have been recognized just for the way that we try to treat people and help our clients. And, of course, there are awards like these that I think represent a combination of what we have been able to achieve on some of the higher profile cases as well as our commitment to our clients and the community. So, I would say all of the recognition we have received has been equally exciting. Is it okay if I say this is in a first place tie with all the other accomplishments?
Question: Sure, although now I can see how a lawyer answers that kind of question (laughing). One of the interesting things about this award is that you are really not best known as just "Mark Breyer, personal injury lawyer." Instead, you are far better known as part of the prominent "Husband and Wife Law Team."
Answer: Yes, there is no doubt that people do not think of me as just another lawyer practicing personal injury law. Alexis and I really are a team. We have shown that we are not just one more set of lawyer, but rather we are a team making a difference and doing it together. I am really proud of the success of "The Husband and Wife Law Team."
Question: So, are there differences between practicing in a traditional firm and practicing with your wife?
Answer: Oh, there's no doubt about that! (laughing) Seriously, it has really been fantastic. I cannot begin to tell you the number of people who have asked me about working with my wife over the years, particularly on cases as significant as those that we handle. I think it is great not only for me but also for our family and for our clients. I think there is a different atmosphere that we are able to bring. I really believe that my wife and the rest of our staff are able to combine the highest level of legal skill and client service with a real caring, family environment.
Question: Speaking of family, I heard that you have a big family.
Answer: Yes, Alexis and I have eight kids. We never intended on having so many children but Alexis kept saying "just one more kid." Her negotiating skills, as usual, won the day.
