Local success story and Greenberg Traurig partner Mark J. McCombs has been charged with stealing more than $1 million in tax increment funds by billing Calumet Park, a suburb in the Chicago area, for work he never did. McComb grew up in Calumet Park and residents were so proud of his accomplishments a street in the village was named after him.

McCombs handled legal matters for the village for years. Former Mayor Buster Porch trusted McCombs to such an extent that he signed off on bills McCombs presented to him with little to no explanation provided. Porch’s successor Joseph DuPar continued to do the same. McCombs did not pocket the money personally but the substantial billing hours he presented enhanced his standing in the firm, providing him more opportunities for advancement and promotion, according to Assistant State’s Attorney John Mahoney.

If McCombs is convicted he could face a prison sentence of 6 to 30 years.


Update: Greeberg Traurig terminated Mr. McCombs after learning of the charges against him and is reviewing the report, according to Lourdes Martinez, Director of Communications for the firm.
