  • William Franklin Nimmo

    I endorse this lawyer. Marc is an excellent defense attorney. He has had close to 40 trials while working as a prosecutor for the San Diego City Attorney. This is the great kind of experience that lawyers need, but just don't get these days, unless they work for an agency like the City Attorney. Marc, like his well regarded father, is focusing on juvenile defense. It is nice to see someone so talented working to help young people that get in trouble. If those people can be reached and helped, it insures that they have a chance to make it this tough world. Kudos to you Marc. Im honored to endorse you.
