Mark's experience in water issues also extends to groundwater adjudications in the Antelope Valley and the Las Posas Valley. Mark has worked with clients and counsel on several condemnation actions, including one that ultimately led to $1.45 million in compensation for the landowners in settlement, when the State had offered $141,000 pre-condemnation.

Before his admission to the State Bar of California in 2015, Mark worked as a law clerk for the London office of ACI Worldwide drafting and revising payment systems contracts with large multinational companies, including Apple Inc., Deutsche Bank, and Barclays.
