Founding attorney Mark Raymond McDonald is a graduate of Duke University
and the McGeorge School of Law. He began his legal career working for
the Riverside County District Attorney's Office as a trial prosecutor,
and transferred to the Special Prosecutions unit in downtown Riverside.
In this division, he handled cases involving environmental offenses, insurance
and consumer fraud, securities fraud, corporate criminal liability offenses,
and many other criminal assignments. He has tried more than 26 murder
cases, as well as over 250 criminal cases to juries, and is respected
by the courts and prosecutors of San Bernardino. He is known for being
an honest but aggressive trial lawyer, and due to the respect he has earned
in the courts, Attorney McDonald often gets cases dismissed by explaining
to the prosecutor why the case should not continue. He was awarded "Prosecutor
of the Year" in 1993 and 1994, and State lecturer in White Collar
Crimes in 1995.
