Biography

Mark A. Raczkowski has spent more than 15 years helping individuals faced with life-altering injuries caused by the carelessness of others. His clients know him as a skilled counselor who takes pride in explaining the law and answering the numerous questions that manifest after an unexpected traumatic event.

Over the course of his career, Mark has represented clients in a variety of disciplines including personal injury, family law, probate, and misdemeanor criminal matters. He eventually narrowed his practice to personal injury cases and has developed considerable experience in premises liability litigation, including cases involving slip and falls, trip and falls, negligent property and facilities maintenance, unsafe stairways and walkways, elevator and escalator injuries, inadequate lighting, defective equipment, hotel and casino incidents, and falling merchandise. In addition, he prosecutes negligence claims arising from auto collisions, dog bites, foodborne illnesses, and wrongful death. His litigation practice spans across state, federal, and tribal courts and has involved multiple jury trials, bench trials, arbitrations, mediations, and appeals.

After graduating from Northern Arizona University, Mark received his law degree (J.D.) from the University of Arizona James E. Rogers School of Law in Tucson, Arizona, and a Master of Laws (LL.M.) post-graduate degree in Trial Advocacy from California Western School of Law in San Diego, California. He became a name partner at Jones|Raczkowski PC in 2012 and is licensed to practice law in both Arizona and California.

Mark has been listed as a Southwest Super Lawyer since 2017 and has given lectures on topics such as premises liability, trial evidence, and technology in the legal field. He is also the acting chair of the Publications Committee for the Arizona Association of Justice (AzAJ), has published articles regarding premises liability litigation, and has co-authored a regular column in the AzAJ's Advocate focused on emerging technology for trial attorneys.
