Whenever people’s civil liberties are trampled, Mark M. Bello – veteran attorney, author of social justice legal thrillers, and civil justice advocate– is ready to jump into the struggle. These days he’s finding plenty to fight – and to write – in his work as a novelist, blogger, and expert on Americans’ legal rights under fire. In 44 years fighting for those rights in court, Bello was one of the first attorneys to sue the Catholic Church over sexual abuse by clergy.
He draws upon his four decades as a litigator to write the compelling, award-winning Zachary Blake Legal Thriller Series. These legal thrillers tackle our most controversial and topical social justice issues and take readers deep into the courtroom where lawyers battle daily to protect our most precious rights. “People’s rights are being drastically eroded by government, political, and corporate greed and influence, and most citizens remain unaware of the harm being done,” he says. “I seek to increase public awareness that our precious constitutional civil and criminal rights are being eroded.”
Whether he’s calling out racist cops for harassing and shooting law-abiding citizens of color, exposing corruption in sexual abuse scandals, hammering Trump’s latest attack on immigrants, or taking on the gun industry and school security, Bello doesn’t pull punches.
