Traffic Ticket Attorney - Serving Kern County and Beyond!
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, Mark took 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.

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.
