The discipline referred to above stems from a case that is more than 10 years old. The Court of Appeal disagreed with my belief that I had an ethical obligation not to reveal attorney-client privileged information to the court. I continued with an appeal which the Court believed was rendered moot. I did so in an attempt to protect the interests of my clients. There was ample legal precedent to support my beliefs. The Court of Appeal referred the matter to the State Bar of California for discipline. My discipline was served and I have been practicing law in California for years without incident.
My client reviews, peer reviews and my experience speak for themselves. Here is a link to my website: www.attorneyrichardmarcus.com
If you want an aggressive attorney with years of experience who will vigorously fight for your rights at reasonable hourly rates, then call me.
Richard Marcus, Esq.
Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. I have known Richard Marcus for many years. We used to share office space together and I keep in touch with him regularly and we worked on several cases together. He is an excellent litigator who really cares about all of his clients. He is bright, articulate and always puts his clients first. He really enjoys what he does and it shows. I would highly recommend to him to anyone looking for a really good attorney.
Christopher Botti Estate Planning Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have worked with Rich Marcus on several matters over about 9 years. Rich has always spotted important issues that others could easily have overlooked. He either knows the law when he gives advice or he makes sure to do his research so that he can give the proper advice. He is efficient, reasonably priced and a tough negotiator. Unlike a lot of litigators, Rich has substantial trial experience and Appellate experience.
David Hoffman Trademark Application Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This sanction means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
