How can legal professionals launch their careers in aviation law?

Tom Dunlap is joined by Mark Fava, a practicing attorney who works as an ombudsman and Vice President for Boeing Corporation. Together they speak about the flight path to success, discussing Mark’s career background that led to his current position and his work mentoring other veterans and attorneys.

Mark is a senior executive lawyer who experienced a lot throughout his career in aviation law. As the chief operations attorney at Delta Airlines during 9/11, Mark got a first-hand look at the litigation process for extreme airport security breaches. Since then, Mark started his aviation law practice before beginning his professional work with Boeing. Mark discusses his career path, his role as an ombudsman, and the professional experiences that contributed to his expertise in aviation law.
