Mark Loevy-Reyes graduated from Cornell Law School in 1992. He was and still is involved with the Latino Law Student Association there. Since he left law school, he has litigated cases with a focus on public service.
He has been an attorney at Loevy & Loevy from 2004-2010 and 2015-present. His work at Loevy & Loevy has focused on representing clients whose rights have been violated by law enforcement (including excessive force, wrongful imprisonment, and prisoner rights) and schools (including gender discrimination and sexual misconduct). He served as litigation counsel in Dominguez v. Hendley, Ware v. City of Chicago, Booker v. City of Chicago, Finwall v. City of Chicago, and T.E. v. Grindle. He was the lead trial attorney in Slater v. Scott County, which resulted in a jury verdict that the Scott County Jail engaged in excessive force and deliberate indifference to the plaintiff.
After working with students who had been abused in public schools, Mark took a leave from Loevy & Loevy to obtain his Masters in Education from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and worked with students in schools in low income communities. Since he returned to Loevy & Loevy he occasionally continues to work with students and teaches education law to graduate students.
Prior to joining Loevy & Loevy Mark was a disability rights lawyer. He also served as a municipal lawyer for the City of Chicago.
