About Me


I grew up in Indiana.  My job is all about getting people out of debt and effectively representing my clients.  I received my undergraduate degree from Indiana University in Political Science.  I received myJuris Doctorate from The John Marshall Law School.  While at John Marshall, Marc was a staff editor on The Journal of Information and Technology Law.  After law school Marc worked for one of the largest bankruptcy firms in Chicago.  I left seeking a smaller more personalized firm.  I worked at a small respected boutique firm practicing bankruptcy and litigation in bankruptcy.  After that, I worked for a foreclosure firm in Northbrook in their bankruptcy department.  Unsatisfied with creditors work I left and entered private practice.  I am licensed in the State of Illinois, a member of the Federal Trial Bar, and licensed in both the Northern and Central Districts of Illinois Federal Courts.

  • Eric Charles Lewis

    I endorse Attorney Marc Wagman. Like myself, Mr. Wagman worked for one of the largest bankruptcy firms in Chicago where he gained knowledge and experience in the sheer volume of caseload, but left the firm to provide clients with more personal attention and better quality of service. Mr. Wagman is a regular contributor to the Avvo community and he takes the time to answer questions and provide informed insight. He is a valuable asset to the Illinois Bar and the Avvo community.

His integrity is unquestioned, his knowledge of bankruptcy law is thorough, and his dedication to the service of his clients is commendable. Plus, he an all around good guy.
