Claimed Lawyer Profile

I’m Mark Caviness, the founder of Caviness Law Firm. I chose the practice of employment and civil rights law because I want to use my knowledge to ensure that all people are treated equally and with dignity.

Since entering law school at Saint Louis University (graduating in 2004) I have loved calling St. Louis home. After graduation, I began working for the federal court here in St. Louis as a law clerk for the Hon. Rodney W. Sippel, United States District Judge. From 2006 through 2017, I served as one of the court’s specialists on civil rights law. I have analyzed thousands of civil rights cases and hundreds of employment cases.

I have a long history of service to the public. Before law school, I was a paramedic for the City of San Diego. Other experience includes volunteering for the San Diego Center for Children and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Eastern Missouri. These experiences motivated me to find new and better ways to serve people.

I started this firm because I believe that I, together with my clients, can make a difference in St. Louis and because I wanted to get off the sideline and into the fight for equal treatment and the preservation of our constitutional rights.
