Bernard E. Hart, a Medina native born in 1915, returned to Medina after his service in World War II and joined the Skinner & Skinner firm in 1946. The Skinner & Skinner firm became the firm of Skinner & Hart following the death of Leroy J. Skinner in 1948. Mr. Hart graduated from the University of Michigan Law School in 1939 and was admitted to the NY bar that same year. He served in the U.S. Army from 1941 to 1946, serving in the European Theater (Ordnance Branch) and later with the Judge Advocate Generalís War Crimes Division in preparation for the Nuremberg Trials; he was discharged with the rank of Major. Mr. Hart served as Medina Village Justice for some 35 years, as Medina School Board Attorney and as NYS Tax Attorney for Orleans County.

After Lee J. Skinnerís untimely death in 1964, Mr. Hart practiced alone until 1969 when Thomas C. Mack joined the Skinner and Hart firm as a partner, following his service with the USAF Judge Advocate Generalís Department as a military lawyer. Mr. Mack was born in Medina in 1939, graduated from Canisius College in 1961, Buffalo Law School in 1964 and was admitted to the NY bar in 1964. In 1971, the firm was renamed Hart & Mack. Mr. Mack has served as Medina School Board Attorney and as NYS Tax Attorney for Orleans County.

Lance J. Mark joined the firm in 1974 and after the retirement of Mr. Hart in 1982 (he died in 2005), the firm became Mack, Mark & Associates, P.C. When Mr. Mark left the firm in 1991, the firm name was changed to Thomas C. Mack, P.C.

In 1992, Mr. Mack formed a partnership with Joseph V. Cardone and Milford L. Phinney, both Medina natives, under the firm name of Mack, Cardone & Phinney, which continued until 1994 when Mr. Cardone was elected full-time Orleans County District Attorney and ceased the private practice of law.

Thereafter, Mr. Mack practiced alone until 2005, when he formed the present firm of Mack & Pace with Nathan D. Pace, a Medina native born in 1966. Mr. Pace graduated from Brigham Young University in 1990 and the J. Reuben Clark Law School in 1993. He was admitted to the Utah bar in 1993 and the NY bar in 2005.
