A former criminal defense attorney specializing in murder cases and the author of 25+ books, Mark Shaw was a legal analyst for USA Today, CNN, and ESPN during the Mike Tyson, O.J. Simpson and Kobe Bryant cases. In 2014 and 2015, he appeared on the REELZ Channel providing legal commentary for two Specials including “The Kennedys.”
Mr. Shaw, a San Francisco-based attorney, is best known for exposing the truth about important historical matters in his controversial books including Down For the Count (Mike Tyson Trial), Miscarriage of Justice (spy Jonathan Pollard), Melvin Belli (Jack Ruby’s attorney), and The Poison Patriach (JFK assassination). Vanity Fair’s James Wolcott called the latter, “Daring: Shaw points the bony finger of recrimination at JFK’s father,” Kirkus Reviews said it was “a clearly written polemic on the corruption of power built around an intriguing theory,” and The New Yorker proclaimed the book, “Ominous.” The author’s ability to defend his theories is possible through YouTube video footage of his debate with bestselling author Robert Tanenbaum about the JFK assassination. To date, more than 25,000 hits have been recorded.
Mark began his media career as an on-air television personality for ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS’s People, and ESPN. He is married to Santa Clara University librarian Wen-ying Lu. More about Mark is available at www.markshawbooks.com and Wikipedia.
