By Mark Curriden, The Texas Lawbook Published 12:00 pm CST, Friday, January 25, 2019 Mark Berg was a senior in high school in 1976 with no idea what he wanted to do when he grew up. There were no lawyers in his family and he hadn’t given law a thought until he accepted an internship for Dallas Co. District Attorney Henry Wade. The legendary prosecutor had just created a new division that focused on career criminals, and Berg was tasked with researching evidence in cases. “A grisly multiple homicide had just occurred in Highland Park by a repeat offender,” he says. “The experience struck my interest in law, and I initially thought I wanted to be a litigator.
