Mark Cantor is a partner at Cantor & Burger LLC. Marks legal practice is dedicated primarily to recovering money for those seriously injured by the negligent actions of others (for example, car accidents) and injuries from work accidents (workers compensation). Mark strongly believes that a client or family with a personal injury case should be allowed equal access to our American justice system without financial concerns and should not pay any fee or expenses for aggressive and competent representation unless the case is won. Therefore, it is free to meet with Mark or any lawyer at CANTOR & BURGER regarding your personal injury case and our contract for representation clearly states that no money is owed for fees or expenses until you win.
