After graduation, Mark worked in West Palm Beach for an insurance defense firm where he learned how insurance companies defend personal injury cases.
After two years of defending insurance companies, he knew would rather help injured people, so he joined the law firm Gary, Williams & Parenti, a nationally known firm located in Ft. Pierce, Florida, where he represented only injured persons. Mark worked on many substantial cases with that firm. However, Mr. Risi longed to return to central Florida to be closer to his family and so he moved back to Daytona Beach and joined the law firm of Leonhardt & Upchurch where he worked with former Volusia County Circuit Court Judge, John Upchurch. When the firm disbanded, Mark moved to Orlando area and in 1995, started his own firm, The Law Office of Mark A. Risi.
