OVERVIEW

Mark has been a tenant at Oriel Chambers since 2006 and has developed a substantial civil practice. He has a wealth of knowledge in the field of personal injury litigation and frequently appears in the County Court representing both Claimants and Defendants in interim hearings and trials across all tracks.

In May 2020 he was appointed by the Lord Chief Justice as a Deputy District Judge (Civil) on the Northern Circuit. In October 2020 he was appointed by the Queen as a Recorder (Crime) on the North Eastern Circuit.

Mark has built a thriving civil practice at Oriel Chambers and is highly regarded in this area of work. He has developed a reputation for the meticulous preparation of cases. He is conscientious and diligent in all the work he undertakes. He takes a considered and pragmatic view to cases, combining his legal knowledge with a commercial approach. He is not afraid to advise clients realistically about the prospects of success and the financial implications of proceeding to trial. He seeks to provide the highest standard of service to both solicitors and lay clients.

In his judicial roles, Mark deals with a wide variety of civil claims in the County Court (as a Deputy District Judge) and criminal cases in the Crown Court (as a Recorder) on a part time basis alongside his continuing practice within Chambers.

Outside work, much of Mark’s spare time is taken up with his young family. He is actively engaged in preaching and teaching the Bible to adults and children in his local church and further afield.
