In the representation of lawyers, Marc has defended large law firms and solo practitioners in a variety of disputes involving real estate, civil litigation, family law, probate and estates, class actions, corporate issues, wrongful use of civil proceedings/abuse of process and bankruptcy matters. As a former member of a Pennsylvania Supreme Court Disciplinary Hearing Committee, Marc draws from his unique insight and knowledge in advising and defending clients throughout the disciplinary process in Pennsylvania. In addition to representing lawyers, Marc’s experience extends to the defense of real estate professionals, insurance brokers/agents and other professionals. Marc has written and presented continuing legal education seminars on legal malpractice, strategies for the defense and early resolution of legal malpractice claims.
