During his 25 year career, Marc has litigated hundreds of employment cases in the state and federal courts in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, South Carolina, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.  Marc has also handled numerous cases before administrative agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Merit Systems Protection Board.

Marc has successfully litigated cases involving diverse issues, including:

  • Race, gender and national origin discrimination;
  • Age discrimination;
  • Disability discrimination;
  • Pregnancy discrimination;
  • Sexual and other forms of harassment;
  • Wage and hour matters, including claims for unpaid wages, overtime compensation and bonuses;
  • Unpaid commissions;
  • Family and Medical Leave Act claims;
  • Breach of contract;
  • Wrongful termination;
  • Claims for severance pay;
  • ERISA issues;
  • Non-compete and non-solicitation issues.

Marc also has significant appellate experience at the state and federal level, and is licensed to practice before the Fourth, Sixth and Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals as well as the appellate courts in the State of Maryland the District of Columbia.

Fortunately, while employment litigation is sometimes the only viable alternative, the vast majority of employment cases are resolved prior to trial.  While Marc has successfully settled many of his cases, he has successfully tried a number of bench and jury trials and is always prepared to litigate a case to conclusion when settlement is not possible.
