Meet Mark D. Newcomb

Mark D. Newcomb


After beginning his legal career in the field of general contract and tort defense in Los Angeles, Mark returned to Orange County to join Koeller Nebeker Carlson Haluck, LLP and focus on construction-related litigation in 1991, where he is now a valued partner and former managing partner.  He has been fortunate to represent the interests of residential and commercial developers and general contractors throughout both California and Nevada in cases involving construction defects, construction site accidents, mechanic’s liens and performance bonds.  He also represents his commercial clients in appellate matters in California as well as matters involving insurance coverage including builders risk, subcontractor default, and general liability matters.  Mark is also very experienced in general liability defense and the defense of bodily injury claims involving construction worksite and other injuries.

In these ever changing economic times, Mark is committed to assisting his large commercial clients in enforcing contracts with owners and subcontractors as well as the contracts with insurers issuing policies to owners and subcontractors.

Mark was born and raised in Orange County, California, where he worked in the construction industry with his father.  After high school, he earned his undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of California at Los Angeles.  He then obtained his J.D. from the University of Southern California.

Outside of work, Mark enjoys concerts, motorsports and outdoor activities with his adult children and friends.
