Senior Counsel

Gerald L. Marcus has been practicing law since 1987; however he worked in the personal injury field of law since 1980 as a private investigator for one of the largest personal injury firms in the San Fernando Valley. Mr. Marcus was the firm's primary negligence investigator, and worked directly under the firm's senior partners developing and preparing cases for settlement and trial. The experiences that Mr. Marcus gained as a full-time negligence investigator inspired his passion of fighting for the rights of innocent injured victims against the insurance industry.

Mr. Marcus attended California State University Northridge, and later attended law school at the Southern California Institute of Law at the Ventura College of Law campus. Mr. Marcus was able to complete the 4 year law school curriculum a full six months early, all while working as a full time negligence investigator.
