About Me

Marshall cut his lawyer teeth as a litigator in a big law firm. He has done battle in multi-million dollar commercial and personal lawsuits, represented huge companies (and sued them), and puffed out his chest when clients have emerged victorious countless times.

Thing is, Marshall prefers to be a teammate, not a fighter. That’s why he values the chance to advise and consult with entrepreneurs, startups, franchisors (and franchisees), and other small businesses, when love, hope, promise, passion, and optimism spring eternal. With a deep understanding of where companies are at risk—and the knowledge of how those risks play out in hard-fought litigation—Marshall helps his clients Create stable companies, Grow them into strong players, and Protect them from surprises.

When he isn’t playing lawyer, Marshall bugs his wife and young son, Everett, captains a promising local curling team, cross-country skis, gardens, golfs, and swears at bad drivers.
