Mark Trompeter Named MVP Law Diversity Scholarship Recipient

Mark Trompeter

Congratulations to Mark Trompeter, the MVP Law Diversity Scholarship recipient from the University of Missouri – Kansas City School of Law. Mark completed his undergrad at UMKC and originally went to pharmacy school, but when he realized he enjoyed reading and writing about new medical processes and drug treatments more than he enjoyed conducting labs, he decided to apply to law school. Mark is confident that he made the right decision in switching from pharmacy as there are many avenues in the legal profession that he can see himself pursing after school. In his limited free time, Mark enjoys tabletop games, working out and cooking.

MVP Law is proud to be a part of Mark’s journey in law school and is looking forward to having him shadow some of our current attorneys throughout the year.
