As a child, Marcus watched an attorney work tirelessly to save his father's life. After 13 years and multiple court hearings the Landsberg family was finally made whole. The tight-knit Landsberg Family remain together today.
Of course Marcus was going to be an Attorney after that.
After winning medals at his State Academic Decathlon competition, Marcus went to the University of Arkansas on a Full Academic Scholarship. Once there, he received two more scholarships, including two from the Fulbright Institute for International Relations. Marcus was an avid reader and student from his crib, and it paid off a thousandfold.
After being awarded a partial scholarship to study at UH Law, Marcus returned to Mo'ili'ili and received his degree.
Now married and active in his community, nothing pleases Marcus more than seeing in the eyes of his client's children the same look Marcus once had. Inside knowing he has come full circle since that attorney saved his father, a lifetime ago

I first met Mr. Landsberg when I was clerking at the First Circuit Court, State of Hawaii. At the time, he was a public defender and made numerous appearances before the judge I was working for including a felony trial. Having seen him at work for an entire trial, i can wholeheartedly endorse him as a competent and experienced criminal defense attorney.
