Attorney Mark J. Bigger
Traffic Ticket Attorney - Serving Kern, Tulare and Fresno County
Mark was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. Before beginning the
practice of law, Mark worked his way through law school as a Legislative
Assistant in Oregon from 1999 to 2004. His interest in traffic law was
developed while working for a long term member of the Oregon Senate Transportation
Committee, Gary George. Mark was in charge of raising support for a bill
in the legislature that would increase the Oregon speed limit to a level
more consistent with engineering traffic safety standards. His efforts
ultimately resulted in the speed limits being raised on several sections
of interstate, including I-5 going through Salem and Medford.
After graduating from the Oak Brook College of Law, Marktook a position
with the criminal defense firm of John A. Barker and Associates and soon
carved out a niche defending traffic cases. He started his own practice
in 2005 here in Bakersfield that evolved from a full service criminal
defense firm to a specialized firm that only handles traffic matters.
Mark has handled over 2000 traffic cases in Central California and enjoys
the interaction with the officers, judges, and clerk staff that are in
court on a daily basis.
Involved in the Legal Community
Apart from his legal career, Mark takes a keen interest in legal education
for the next generation of lawyers. He serves on the Board of his Alma
Mater, The Oak Brook College of Law. Mark’s involvement in continuing
education beyond law school has lead him to serve in 2013-2014 as the
Legislative Director and a board member for the California Traffic Defense
Bar Association, the statewide association dedicated to standing up for
due process and effective representation for motorists on the road. He
is still active to this day. Mark also serves as Past President of the
Oak Brook College of Law Alumni Association Board of Directors, where
he is the longest serving member of the Board.
