Favorite Quote: “Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”  — Steve Jobs

What Others Are Saying

Mr. Marshall and his Firm recently represented me in an Automobile Accident case while I was on vacation in Florida. The automobile I was riding in as a passenger was struck from behind at a high rate of speed.

After numerous doctor appointments, CAT & CT scans all came up negative for broken bones, mussel tears or dislocations I was diagnosed to have suffered case of whiplash.

Mr. Marshall and his assistant handled all my affairs in Florida for me in Massachusetts in the most professional and friendly manner. His assistant was always available to take my calls and answer all my emails in a very timely manner. Mr. Marshall did everything he said he would do for me and delivered me a very fair and equitable settlement in a short period of time.

I would highly recommend Mr. Marshall’s complete firm to anyone in need of legal representation.
