Mr. Booker began practicing law in New York City in 1999. There, he participated in many high-stakes lawsuits that centered largely on financial matters involving international insurance companies, investment banks, privately held companies, and securities brokerage firms. After honing his skills in the state and federal courts in New York, Mr. Booker returned to Boston, his hometown, with the eventual aim of launching his own law practice. Upon his return to Boston, Mr. Booker worked in a couple of small and mid-sized law firms in Boston, representing class-action and individual plaintiffs in state court, federal court, and arbitration forums. In 2007, after eight years of rigorous training and experience in a substantial number of areas of law (including antitrust, consumer, contracts, copyright, negligence, insurance, professional liability, securities, trusts and estates), Mr. Booker opened the Law Offices of Mark Booker in Boston.
Since opening his firm, Mr. Booker has tried civil and criminal cases, including in the federal court sitting in Boston, the Superior Court, and various divisions of the Boston Municipal Court Department. Mr. Booker has handled appeals in the United States Court of Appeals (the federal appellate court sitting in Boston); the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts; the Massachusetts Appeals Court; and the Appellate Division of the Boston Municipal Court Department.
