Mark has also participated in numerous disputes regarding trustee issues as both an institutional defendant and as an expert witness.

Mark has distinguished himself among his fellow colleagues by becoming a Certified Financial PlannerTM professional (CFP), an Accredited Estate Planner® (AEP), a Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU), a graduate from the Southern Trust School, and by serving as Chairman of the Estates and Trust section of the Mississippi Bar Association (2008-09). He is currently licensed to practice law in the State of Mississippi and is a member of the National Association of Estate Planning Councils, the Purposeful Planning Institute and the Collaboration for Family Flourishing.
