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.
Divorce & Family
Divorce & Family
I specialise in complex Armed Forces pensions on divorce and I am the Armed Forces Sector Lead. With my military background, I am particularly knowledgeable in the areas of military relationship breakdown, children issues involving military parents and contested military finance cases.
"I would like to thank Mark Hood for all his help in my divorce and financial proceedings, I am extremely grateful. I feel so much happier, and both my son and I are settling nicely into our new home. We love it and it is all thanks to Mark and his expertise. I would also like to thank Mark's Legal Assistant, Louise Johnston."
"Mark was very friendly and helpful and always quick to respond to any questions I had no matter how big or small."
"Calm professional, option for further assistance was welcoming and no trouble."
My greatest achievements are achieving 1st Dan black belt in Taekwondo, being a self-taught amateur drummer, and being an Indian restaurant-style curry “chef”.
I am fortunate to be supported by Louise Johnston, who can be contacted at email@example.com.
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.
