Mark Lindquist media interview

Telling your Story

There is nobody who can better tell your story. Mark listens. He understands. He has won some of the most significant cases in the state, both criminal and civil, including the Tacoma Mall shooting, murders, aviation disasters, and a variety of other cases.

Winning your case requires knowing your story and how to tell it to the jury and sometimes the media and public as well.

John Quincy Adams, lawyer and U.S. President said, “Whoever tells the best story wins.” 

Some cases need to be negotiated. Some cases need to be tried in a courtroom. Some cases need to be heard in the courtroom of public opinion as well. 

Mark has done hundreds of interviews for television, radio, and print. He has given presentations on communicating to the public through the media for the Washington State Bar Association, the Pierce County Tacoma Bar Association, the Washington State Association of Municipal Attorneys, the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys, and many more groups.

Mark is a bestselling author, sought-after public speaker, and media commentator.
