“I have worked with Marc and am very familiar with his work as a lawyer. Marc is an exceptionally talented lawyer who puts heart and soul into representing his clients. He is polite and professional but has an iron will and never backs down from a fight. I love being on the same side as Marc and would hate having to oppose him.”
