Veteran Volunteer Attorney Mark E. Sullivan shares expertise
In June 2008 veteran volunteer attorney Mark E. Sullivan of Raleigh addressed the annual meeting of the Iowa State Bar Association on the topic of re-employment rights for Reservists and forming a military committee for the ISBA. In July Mark was twice in Washington, DC conferring with US Senate and House staffers for the Armed Services Committee and the Veterans Affairs Committee about legislation involving custody of children for service members who are deployed overseas. Mark has practiced family law in Raleigh since 1976. He has published more than 70 articles and a book on family and military law, ["The Military Divorce Handbook: A Practical Guide to Representing Military Personnel and Their Families," which is published by the ABA and is now in its 2nd printing];.Mark served 4 years in the U.S. Army and retired as a colonel in 2002 after 30 years in the Army Reserves, at which time he was awarded the Legion of Merit as "the Army's foremost expert in family law." Mark is now Chair of the Military Committee of the ABA Family Law Section. The Wake County Volunteer Lawyers Program (VLP) is very fortunate that Mark has been a member of our team since the VLP was first organized. As you can see, he is a national treasure.
