About Bayard

Learn Bayard’s areas of practice.

I have been in private practice  for 36 years.   My concentration has been in personal injury--auto accidents, slip and falls, work injuries, products cases, and medical malpractice.   I have also served as an arbitrator in many cases.  Prior to going into private practice, I held positions at the American Law Division of the Library of Congress, Captain  JAGC in the United States Army, legal Department of Dupont.  I also received a Ph.D in law from the University of London.  My Ph.D thesis was published as a book,Inside Justice, by Associated University Presses (USA, Toronto, and London).  I am a native Delawareean, thus, a loyal Blue Hens fan.  My office building is on the National Register of Historic Places.  I have developed a great interest in historic preservation  and have been involved in historic preservation litigation on behalf of clients.  I have been married to Sonia for 47 years, have two children, Anne-Melanie and spouse Michael, Bill and spouse Charmaine, and two grand children, Michael and Robynn.

Awesome!
My husband was the one who forced me to go and talk with Bayard. After working with him and his staff through this process I am thankful that I went to see him. Bayard is very professional and was comfortable to work with. It was nice that they handled all the correspondence with the insurance company which was a weight off my shoulder. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Excellent lawyer and staff
I was in a car accident which resulted in a back injury. The man who had hit us was not the owner of the car he was driving and he was uninsured so I wasn't sure what would happen with my medical bills. After panicking a little and telling a friend about my situation, I was referred to Bayard Marin to see if he could help me. Mr. Marin was very pleasant and after we talked for awhile, he took some information and eased my mind that something could be done and he and his staff went to work on my case. They kept in contact with me every step of the way and let me know how everything was going. The end result was that all my medical bills were paid and I was even compensated for my injury. I was very happy with service I received!
