Civil Litigation

BEST DEFENSE IS A GOOD OFFENSE

Daniel Marshall represents both Plaintiffs and Defendants.

This gives him the ability to analyze his opponents cases more accurately, because he has already put on their own type of case.

He also forms businesses  (See Business Formation page) and defends them from lawsuits more effectively because he already knows their history.

He also prosecutes actions for these same businesses with

Marketably higher levels of settlements and judgments, because the

Costs of litigation are tied to the actual business budget of his client.

The bottom- line advantage this gives Mr. Marshall over purely state litigators is that in cases where intent does not have to be proven, then the likelihood of success is much higher.

SUCCESSFUL   STATE LITIGATOR

Mr. Marshall, has practiced in the San Diego Courts full time since 1998.

During that time he has won numerous trials and several sizable money judgments.

FORCEFUL FEDERAL LITIGATOR

Daniel Marshall, worked with a federal judge during law school and shortly thereafter.   Additionally, he worked in civil rights  for the County of San Diego directly reporting to former Chief Judge Edwin Schwartz for whom the San Diego federal court is named. Once he opened his own firm in 1998, he focused in employment and disabilities discrimination.   His federal experience also has increased his success rate in state court, because federal cases are generally more complex.

Small Business Representation

BENEFITS TO THE SMALL BUSINESS

Attorney fees  tied to level of risk is the key economic factor that should be driving your decision of who to hire as your attorney.  The key legal factor is the level of effective experience the attorney has for small business owners.
Mr. Marshall,  meets your business needs by providing a level of  service that is often ignored by most law firms.  He is willing to represent plaintiffs and defendants who are being sued for less than $25,000 dollars.  This is often the amounts involved with most lawsuits involving small and even large businesses in terms of volume of cases.

However, necessarily large firms will overcharge for the actual risk faced by the small business owner.  Mr. Marshall offers a fee capped schedule of payments directly tied to the stages of litigation and actual work required.  These type of cases, have separate procedural statutes that are often Not well known by larger law firms, and have special and potentially dangerous rules for the unwary litigator as the time lines are faster.

WHY MUST YOUR CORPORATION OR LLC HIRE AN ATTORNEY IN COURT? Anyone can represent himself in court, but only an attorney can represent someone else. You and your corporation have separate legal existences. You thus can represent yourself in court, but you cannot represent the company.  If you do you would be practicing law (representing someone else) without a license, which is a crime.  Call me now or call me later.

 Mr. Marshall has rarely lost a limited civil case
