He studied English literature at University College London, completing a Bachelor of Arts degree in English at the University of British Columbia in 1971. He went on to complete his Bachelor of Laws degree at the University of British Columbia in 1975 and was called to the Bar in 1976.
Mark began his career as a criminal defense lawyer, representing clients in all jurisdictions and levels of Court in British Columbia as well as in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Shortly after being called to the Bar, he and several other like-minded barristers formed a criminal law defense firm.

Over the past 35 years Mark has helped clients throughout B.C. suffering from spinal cord injuries, mild traumatic brain injuries, and complex orthopaedic injuries. He has fought for the rights of more than a thousand injured people during that time, and has remained committed to helping level an uneven playing field.
In 2005 Mark was appointed a member of the British Columbia Review Board.
