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 that he would rather help injured people, so he joined the law firm of Gary, Williams & Parenti, a nationally known firm located in Ft. Pierce, Florida. Working directly with Willie Gary, where he represented only injured persons. Mark worked on many substantial and high profile cases with the 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 soon thereafter, in 1995, started his own personal injury firm, The Law Office of Mark A. Risi.
