About Mark Bennett

Mark is constantly striving to become a better lawyer. In the past he has attended a prestigious 5-week Trial Lawyers College in Wyoming, paired with studying psychodrama, improvisational theater, and hypnosis. Taking these courses has immensely improved his persuasiveness. Mark is just one of 800 Texas criminal-defense lawyers board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Criminal Law.

Mark is a unique criminal-defense lawyer equally versed at home arguing facts to a jury, or arguing fine points of law to the highest appellate courts. He has achieved major victories for clients in the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, the Texas Supreme Court and the Georgia Supreme Court along with numerous lower appellate and trial courts.

Mark thoroughly enjoys helping fellow lawyers to become better at their craft. He is a leader of the criminal-defense bar, formerly serving as President (and twice as Vice President) of the Harris County Criminal Lawyers Association, heading the Lawyers Assistance Strike Force (protecting lawyers from judges) and the Donald Davis Seminar (teaching lawyers to deal better with the stresses of practicing criminal-defense law).
