After graduating from high school in Rowan County, Mark earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2006 followed by his law degree from Campbell University in 2009. He joined Wallace & Graham shortly after being admitted to the North Carolina State Bar in August 2009.
Since then, he has represented hundreds of workers who have developed a cancer or other illness related to benzene, asbestos, noise, and other toxic exposures at work.
Throughout his decade of practice, he has achieved favorable outcomes for these clients at the North Carolina Industrial Commission, the North Carolina state courts, as well as North Carolina and South Carolina federal courts.
Active in the community, he serves on various committees as well as the Board of Directors for Meals on Wheels of Rowan, regularly delivering meals to its homebound seniors. He also does pro bono work for Partners In Learning in Salisbury and has served with the NC Bar Association's Wills For Heroes committee, drafting free estate planning documents for local first responders.
Mark lives in Salisbury with his wife, two kids and dog. Whenever humanly possible, they all enjoy traveling, attending a Tar Heels sporting event, or most any other outdoor activity.
