The National Foundation for Judicial Excellence named Mark J. Neal to its Board of Directors in February 2017. 

Mark J. Neal, on January 28, 2017, attended the American Board of Trial Advocates Louisiana chapter's annual meeting in New Orleans. 

Mark J. Neal & Jordan Haedicke successfully persuaded the LA Second Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse the lower court's erroneous grant of a new trial of an earlier zero jury verdict in favor of the firm's client. In the trip and fall matter of Audrey Nugent v.Car Town of Monroe, No. 50,910 CW,  the jury dismissed the plaintiff's claims of negligence after the 4 day trial. The trial judge then granted plaintiff's motion for new trial. In response, on September 26, 2016, the appellate court vacated the trial judge's decision and reinstated the jury verdict. 

Mark J. Neal, counsel for Brookshire, on May 18, 2016, convinced the LA Second Circuit Court of Appeals to affirm the Caddo Parish state court judge's decision to overrule the defendant's lack of subject matter jurisdiction exception in the matter of Brookshire Grocery Company v. Musculoskeletal Institute of LA (MIL), No.5208-CW. MIL filed 3 meritless suits in the Office of Workers' Compensation (OWC) which were dismissed. Brookshire then sued MIL in Caddo Parish  seeking sanctions for MIL's gross failure to conduct a reasonable inquiry into the underlying facts before filing the 3 earlier suits. The appellate court ruled that state court, rather than the OWC, was the appropriate forum to hear Brookshire's suit for sanctions, attorneys' fee and damages. MIL sought a Supreme Court writ which was denied September 23, 2016

Mark J. Neal, on February 3, 2016, in the matter of George McGovern III, et al v. David Todd Moore, No. 5:13-CV-1353, convinced a federal jury in Shreveport, LA (Western District) to dismiss his client at the end of a 3 day trial. Plaintiff claimed our firm's client exercised undue influence over his father to gift him a family farm in Iowa and that his father lacked the mental capacity to make the gift. The jury rejected plaintiff's claims.
