Biography

Mark was raised in Las Vegas; his grandfather moved here in the 1930's and became a County Commissioner in the 1950's and 60's, instrumental in building the convention center, airport, and courthouse. In Law School, he served as an author and editor to the law review and later clerked for Federal Judge Lloyd D. George in Las Vegas. After law school, Mark received offers from a prominent downtown Los Angeles law firm, as well as from the largest firm in Arizona, but he opted instead to return home to Las Vegas to join his father's law practice. Mark received his AV rating* (based on attorney and judicial surveys) in 1996, after just 15 years of practice. In 1999, U.S. Senator Reid included Mark in his list of nominees for a federal judgeship appointment.
