I've been Gary's client for 15 years. He has pulled my ass out of the fire - and even better, prevented me from putting my ass in the fire - so many times I can't even count. For high-tech business in Seattle, you can't get any better.
Specifically, he's helped me with the founding of multiple high-tech companies, acquisition of one my businesses, employment contracts, and business contracts that helped me avoid litigation. He's also helped me win a good out-of-court settlement, and he won a case for me that had the misfortune to go to litigation.
By far the most valuable has been his clear and astute legal advice in the area of high-tech business.

Having Gary represent me was the best legal decision I made this year. I had a dispute with a rather large company and he managed my relationship with them fantastically. He made it go from adversarial to cooperative all the while keeping me relaxed and feeling good about my situation, yet honest about the realities of my circumstances.
He was sensitive about my finances and worked with me on structuring payments. Gary did a wonderful job of keeping me informed and I never felt left out of the loop. He even went out of his way by giving me freebie's here and there that he didn't have to do.
I got the sense Gary really cared about me and my situation and genuinely did his best job in the most efficient manner possible. I would without hesitation recommend Gary Marshall.

I endorse Gary because he holds a depth of knowledge and many years experience in the field of intellectual property. On various occasions I consulted with him on difficult cases and his analysis is both accurate and comprehensive! I have referred numerous clients to Gary. I appreciate his kind, calm, and patient demeanor as well.

I have consulted Gary on several occasions regarding litigation and intellectual property matters and found him to be knowledgeable, practical and experienced. In addition, I have referred clients to him where his particular expertise was needed, and would not hesitate to refer him in the future.
