Mark Rondeau, Attorney at Law – Watkins Calcara, Law Firm, Great Bend, KS



Mark Rondeau has been practicing law for over thirty years. Over the years, his practice has evolved from a litigation-based practice working to resolve disputes into one working with clients to avoid disputes. His experience in both the litigation arena and in an “office” practice, give him a global perspective allowing him to anticipate and address matters well beyond the immediate issues on which clients are focused.

Most of his current practice is related to business related issues, employment law, banking, transactional and real estate, regulatory compliance, water and agricultural law. He also works extensively in estate planning such as Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney and has an active practice dealing with the complexities of Medicaid planning and eligibility.

Mr. Rondeau brings talent, experience and perseverance to all his clients. Whether it is drafting a simple estate plan or negotiating and drafting a multimillion-dollar contract, Mr. Rondeau’s goal is simple: “I want every client to feel they are my most important client and they have the best lawyer in the fight.”
