    I endorse this lawyer.I have known Gary for twenty-five years. He does excellent work. I do not hesitate to send my clients to him when they have a legal problem within his practice area. I enjoy talking to him about legal issues. I will call him when I have a difficult legal problem, and want someone to bounce some ideas off of. And he will do the same with me.

  • Kevin R. Scudder

    I strongly endorse Gary Marshall to members and users of the legal community. I am a Collaborative / Family Law attorney, and I also work as a Mediator. My work with clients is focused on getting my clients the information they need to reach an out-of-court resolution of their case that reflects their sense of fairness and justice. On many occasions during my work with clients issues outside my area of expertise are raised. When the issue is related to contract drafting and analysis, pension valuations, or intellectual property issues I call on Gary's expertise. On all occasions I have found Gary's work to be accurate, of great use to my clients, and cost-effective. I highly recommend Gary's services.
