Gerald L. Marcus
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.
Since 1987, Mr. Marcus has represented nearly 12,000 clients. He has managed to obtain nearly $125,000,000.00 in settlements, arbitration awards, and jury verdicts for his clients. He is an active member of the State Bar of California, the Los Angeles County Bar Association, the San Fernando Valley Bar Association, the American Trial Lawyers Association, the Consumer Attorneys of California, and the Consumer Attorneys of Los Angeles and Beverly Hills Bar Association. In every year from 2014 to 2016, he was included on the California Super Lawyers list. No more than 5 percent of attorneys in each state are named to this list every year. In 2015, he was also selected for inclusion in "The Nation's Top One Percent" by The National Association of Distinguished Counsel.
Mr. Marcus is dedicated to the principals, and the philosophy, that every innocent injured victim is entitled to the best possible representation, regardless of their personal financial status, and of the size or complexity of their case. His philosophy can be summed up in one sentence: Every innocent injured victim is entitled to have their interests protected, and their case prosecuted aggressively and zealously, within the boundaries of the law, so that their ultimate recovery is maximized.
Mr. Marcus prides himself on being a tough, creative, and fair legal representative and negotiator. Additionally, Mr. Marcus has surrounded himself with his hand-picked staff of well-trained individuals, who all share his basic common principals and philosophies. He is also actively involved in the local community, providing support to a number of charitable organizations as an Honorary Board of Governors member with Los Angeles Trial Lawyers' Charities. He is also on the Board of Directors and active Treasurer for the Los Angeles Trial Lawyers' Charities.
Mr. Marcus has been married for more than 30 years, has two daughters, two dogs, and is a L.A. Clippers Fan.
