Mark Raymond McDonald is a sole practitioner in San Bernardino, California serving all parts of Orange County, Riverside, and San Bernardino County. A 1990 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.
After having completed all of the criminal trial assignments, Mr. McDonald joined the “Special Prosecutions” unit in downtown Riverside. The Special Prosecutions unit is charged with the responsibility of prosecuting all white collar offenses, both at the State and Federal level.
Mr. McDonald’s assignments within the unit were to investigate and, if warranted, prosecute crimes involving large scale fraud, political corruption, and organized crime.
On a specialized basis, he also handled cases involving environmental offenses, insurance and consumer fraud, securities fraud, corporate criminal liability offenses (workplace deaths), counterfeiting, and so on.
All cases within Special Prosecutions are handled by an individual attorney from their initial investigation through trial and sentencing. In January of 1997, after three years in the Special Prosecutions unit, Mr. McDonald opened his private practice on Hospitality Lane in San Bernardino.
Mr. McDonald’s practice is an Exclusive Criminal Defense Practice and he has assembled an impressive record of trial victories on cases ranging from special circumstances murders to DUI and simple assault charges.
