Marcus Harris is the only attorney in Chicago that I trust to refer clients for trademark and copyright matters. I have known Marcus since law school and personally observed his brilliance and outside the box thinking in complex matters. Look no further than Marcus no matter how simple or complex your legal issue may be.
