Default Dedicated legal help for InterNACHI members

Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that our General Counsel, Mark Cohen, will soon take more active role on the message board and will be able to answer member questions via the members-only Legal Advice for Inspectors forum. Our initial goal is to have Mark available to respond to message board questions at least eight hours each week. I'm delighted that we're able to offer this amazing new benefit to members.

Mark has been InterNACHI’s General Counsel since 2005, and has extensive knowledge of our industry. After completing law school at the University of Colorado, he served four years as an Air Force Judge Advocate and two years as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney. He served as municipal judge for the City of Boulder. He has written six articles published in the prestigious American Jurisprudence Proof of Fact series, including one on piercing the corporate veil. He serves on the Board of The Colorado Lawyer, and this year serves as the chairperson.

Mark should be starting some time next week.

Cheers,

Fantastic. Although this is a benefit I hope I won't need to use it's nice to know it's here if I need it.

I will soon be re-newing my membership for my 10th year with NACHI.

I hope he shares his legal opinion in regards to ancillary services and warranties and how those relate to the SoP.

The SOP doesn't cover ancillary services or warranties. We don't need Mark to answer that one
