Rater Law Office represents a wide range of clients with diverse and specific legal needs:

Real Estate

Rater Law Office has handled hundreds of real estate closings and title opinions. Mark has successfully represented clients in a variety of real estate matters including seller’s failure to disclose a material defect, lot line adjustments, easements, and adverse possession.


Many new or current business owners desire the benefits of sole proprietorship, partnership, incorporation or an LLC. Mark has experience drafting these documents and making sure they are properly set up and filed.


Often clients need a contract drawn up to memorialize a deal, business arrangement, or other agreement the parties may have. Sometimes a client may feel a contract he or she was involved in has been breached. If a contract is drafted properly, it is much easier to defend later. Having a competent lawyer like Mark Rater is important in establishing and enforcing contractual relationships.


It is illegal to be discriminated against in employment, public accommodations, and housing due to your race, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy status, and age among other things. Mark has seen positive outcomes in many of the discrimination cases he has handled. If you feel you have been discriminated against, and have credible documentation of it, Mark Rater is here to help.
