Mark Bederow's career began in 1998, when shortly after he graduated cum laude from the Syracuse University College of Law, he was appointed by Robert M. Morgenthau as an Assistant District Attorney for New York County. At the District Attorney's Office he developed a reputation as a thorough investigator and skilled trial attorney. In 2004, he joined Thompson Hine LLP, a large international law firm, where he focused his practice on white collar criminal defense and related subject areas. In 2008, he formed the Law Office of Mark A. Bederow.

As an Assistant District Attorney at the leading prosecutor's office in the nation, Mr. Bederow learned to think like a prosecutor and honed his investigative and trial skills--traits critical to effective representation in a criminal matter. Among the thousands of cases he investigated and prosecuted, Mr. Bederow managed several long-term investigations and tried many complex cases. He also prosecuted one of the first indictments ever brought under New York's hate crime statute.

After more than five years as a prosecutor, Mr. Bederow joined Thompson Hine. There, he developed exceptional client service skills and successfully represented both individuals and business entities in many significant criminal and non-criminal matters.

Mr. Bederow has represented public officials, attorneys, medical professionals, federal and state law enforcement officers, business owners, investment bankers, traders, Hollywood personalities, students, a best-selling author, an internationally renowned artist and many others.

Mr. Bederow has earned a reputation as a legal strategist who thinks outside the box to reach a favorable resolution, but also as a skilled litigator willing to try a case if it is in the best interest of his client. Mr. Bederow has never lost a trial as a prosecutor or as defense counsel, and he has tried many high profile cases. Mr. Bederow recently represented a decorated former Supervisory Special Agent of the FBI charged with four counts of murder arising out of allegations that he assisted his Mafia informant commit organized crime related homicides. All charges were dismissed in the middle of the prosecution's case at trial.

Since 2004, Mr. Bederow has been a guest-faculty member at the New York County District Attorney's Office Trial Advocacy Program. In 2006, he was selected by a committee of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York to perform in a mock trial conducted before the Association.
