Mark Tufts was born and raised in New Orleans. He received his undergraduate degree in finance from Louisiana State University in 2012. In 2015, Mark obtained his Juris Doctorate from Loyola University New Orleans School of Law. At the same time, Mark also obtained a Master of Business Administration from Loyola University New Orleans School of Business. After law school, Mark practiced nearly six years defending employers and insurers in claims arising under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) and the Defense Base Act (DBA).
In mid-2021, Mark decided to join his former colleagues at Mainstay Law to start representing injured workers under the LHWCA and DBA. Similar to Mainstay’s other attorneys, Mark believes that his years of defense experience provides a unique and critical perspective in helping injured workers successfully pursue their claims.
