About Mark Rater, Attorney & Counselor at Law
Mark Rater received his BBA from the University of Iowa and his law degree from Creighton University School of Law where he was member of Law Review. Mark is licensed to practice in Iowa and Nebraska and is admitted to practice before Iowa District Courts, Nebraska District and County Courts, Iowa Federal District Court for the Southern District of Iowa, Nebraska Federal District Court, and the United States Supreme Court. Mark’s practice is primarily in the 4th Judicial District of Iowa, which includes the counties of Pottawattamie, Mills, Harrison, Montgomery, Fremont, Cass, Page, Shelby, and Audubon, and in the counties of Douglas and Sarpy in Nebraska.
Upon graduating from law school, Mark was one of a select few to take and pass the Iowa and Nebraska bar exams in the same summer. Mark was an Assistant County Attorney for six southwest Iowa counties for his first five years. This experience gave Mark great access to, and familiarity with, the court system. Mark then made the transition into private practice in Council Bluffs which afforded him the opportunity to broaden his range of legal expertise. Mark moved to his present office location in 1996, which is conveniently located across the street from the Pottawattamie County courthouse. Mark has tried over 25 jury trials and has many years of experience in the courtroom. Mark has also successfully resolved many of his personal injury cases through mediation.

Mark is very caring and takes the time to thoroughly explain things. I would highly recommend him for anyone in need of an attorney who will listen to you and be very thorough!
I was in a car accident at the end of March and hired Mark to represent me in a personal injury case. He was very sympathetic about my well being and wanted to make sure that I was feeling better before we settled with the settlement offer. He made sure all of my hospital bills were taken care of and got me my settlement money in a very timely manner. I would highly recommend him as a lawyer.
Mark is very professional, competent and compassionate. I highly recommend him and would not hesitate to engage him again in the future.
