While at these firms, he has always concentrated on complex, sophisticated litigation. Marcus was regularly the attorney primarily responsible for briefing in the matters on which he worked, and he has briefed and argued cases before state and federal courts across the country, including numerous state supreme courts and multiple federal courts of appeals.
One former Arkansas Trial Lawyer of the Year has recognized that Marcus ‘is as good as they come in brief writing and appeals.’ Other lawyers agree:
Marcus was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, where he was student body president while attending Hall High School. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Marcus continued his education at the UALR William H. Bowen School of Law. Upon graduation from law school, Marcus completed a two year clerkship with Judge Gibson in Kansas City, Missouri, and he eventually resettled in his hometown of Little Rock while accumulating over 20 years of experience representing a wide variety of clients in complex and class action litigation.
Marcus has a passion for reading and an intense appreciation for music, and he considers his most important role to be serving as a father to his three children. To that end, Marcus was elected to two three-year terms on the school board at Our Lady of Holy Souls Catholic School, with his peers selecting him as president during his final year. Marcus is also an avid jogger and regularly participates in organized runs of various distances. Finally, Marcus of course loves his dog, Oliver.
