Profile in Practice: Mark Geragos

As part of CEB’s commitment to bringing together California’s legal community, our blog will post a short interview with one of your fellow attorneys.

This week, we profile attorney Mark Geragos:

CEB: What is your practice area and how did you choose it?

Mark: Trial work. I started doing criminal defense because that is what my father, my hero, did and I wanted to emulate him.

CEB: What do you like best and least about practicing law?

Mark: I love being in the courtroom, especially in jury trial.  I hate doing the administrative work of managing the offices.

CEB: What CEB book have you found most helpful in your practice?

Mark: CEB’s Criminal Law Procedure and Practice, its my Bible.

CEB: What is the best legal tip you ever received?

Mark: If the clients made good decisions they wouldn’t need you.

CEB: How do you think the practice of law will change in the next 15 years?

Mark: It will be totally paperless. The days of paper discovery are already a thing of the past. When prosecutors start turning over terabytes of discovery electronically you know its only a matter of time before that is standard operating procedure throughout the legal world.

CEB: What are the most interesting books you have read (lately)?

Mark: The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life by Alice Schroeder, Plum Island by Nelson DeMille, and Street Fighter in the Courtroom by Charles Garry (I read it every year).

CEB: What is your contact information?

Mark: Geragos & Geragos, APC, 644 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA 90017; www.geragos.comwww.twitter.com/markgeragos

CEB: Thank you, Mark!
