About Mark Hood

I completed a twenty-year Army career in the Royal Logistic Corps as an officer gaining particular experience in delivering training, recruiting officers, project management, advising governments, operations and planning, and even running a string of British Forces Post Offices. Changing tack to pursue a career in the law, many of the skills learned in the Army have proved directly transferable to this role.

I studied for my Graduate Diploma and Legal Practice Certificate at the University of Law in Bristol, completing the latter with distinction. I trained at a full-service law firm in the South West before starting at Goughs in the Family department and I have a particular interest in, and an understanding of the effect that life in the military has when facing relationship upheaval or other related family law problems.

What I like about working for Goughs

The amazing approach to teamwork by the leadership team which engenders a culture of trust, co-operation coaching, and mentoring to enable everyone to focus on the client. Autonomy and support in equal measure and an interesting mix of cases to work on.
