About the Author

Author Info

After four undergraduate years at Duke University, four years in the US Navy, and a satisfying 25-year career in consulting engineering at Kimley-Horn and Associate, Inc (winner of multiple Best Places to Work awards), Mark went to law school at North Carolina Central University School of Law. It was one of the hardest things he'd ever done but also one of the most joyful and rewarding things he'd ever done.

Combining his prior consulting and business management background with the (new to him) legal profession, Mark saw an opportunity to help innovative attorneys start financially sustainable law firms that improve access to justices. He launched the Incubator for Legal Practice and Innovation (www.innnovationlegal.org). In that work, Mark met entrepreneurs and legal innovators who started and ran successful nonprofit law firms. Inspired by their work, Mark compiled their thoughts, their strategies, and their principles in a book, "How to Start a Nonprofit Law Firm."
