Raised in Michigan, Mark has always had a deep-rooted interest in politics and economics. Demonstrating remarkable academic prowess, he completed his undergraduate studies in less than three years, receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1977. Subsequently, he earned his law degree from the prestigious University of Florida in an equally impressive timeframe in 1980, with his Doctorate of Jurisprudence Degree. Following his graduation, Mark returned to Michigan, where he gained valuable experience working at a reputable law firm for two years.
After graduating, Mark received membership into the Michigan State Bar and the Florida State Bar in 1981. Then, in January 1983, drawn by his love for the Florida atmosphere, Mark made the significant decision to establish his own practice as a sole practitioner in Clearwater. As a general practice lawyer, he initially focused on family law and served as a guardian ad litem. Throughout his career, Mark has developed extensive experience in various courthouses across Florida, handling numerous jury and bench trials, and was even admitted to practice law in the U.S. District Court in and for the State of Florida. Recognizing the importance of collaboration, he then relocated to Largo in 2018 in order to remain close to the Clearwater courthouse while fostering relationships with other esteemed attorneys.
