Mark Bratlien started his criminal justice career in 1976 as a military policeman in the U.S. Army. He was stationed in Germany for his three year tour of duty. After being honorably discharged, Mark worked his way through college. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree with honors in Business Administration/Finance from California State University at Dominguez Hills.
In addition to his military police experience, Mark worked for two years as a civilian contract military police officer for the U.S. Air Force while attending college, followed by several years as a police officer in So. California. Mark was assigned to patrol and made thousands of traffic stops and hundreds of DUI arrests. Mark finds this experience extremely valuable in his representation of clients charged with DUI and traffic related offenses. It is real world experience that cannot be learned in law school or from a book.
Mark graduated from Seattle University School of Law in 2002. He worked for the Whatcom County Public Defender for over five years. Through his skill and hard work, he achieved a winning record of trial victories.
Mark Bratlien lives in Bellingham, enjoys running, and golf.
