Mark Ronning

LTC, USA Retired

Mark founded Northwest Veterans Law to serve the legal needs of those who have given for their country. Northwest Veterans Law was formed to establish the first regional legal network to serve the unique needs of our military and veteran population.

​ Mark is a 4th generation Oregonian who retired after 24 years of military service.  He enlisted as an infantryman, attending basic and advanced individual training at Ft. Benning, GA.  He was commissioned as a field artillery officer and branched Judge Advocate General Corps after nine years of service.  During his 15 years as a Judge Advocate he served as legal advisor to Battalions, Brigades and Divisions in garrison, overseas and combat environments.

​ He was licensed to practice law in 1995 and focuses his practice on VA disability claim appeals, claims before the Board for Correction of Military Records, military administrative and criminal law defense and expert witness testimony on division of military benefits on divorce.
