Attorney Case History
Representative matters include
- Marshall, working with Wyche attorney Troy Tessier, represented a major paper manufacturer in a general liability insurance claim involving failure of a large piece of equipment. After three days of trial, the opposing party raised its pretrial offer from $200,000 to the full amount of the claim, nearly $2 million, resulting in settlement of the case.
- With Wyche attorney Mark Bakker, Marshall defended a large military goods manufacturer against a wrongful-rejection claim brought by a supplier alleging damages in the millions of dollars. The jury rendered a verdict for our client, even though the defense was based on a complicated Uniform Commercial Code theory.
- For many years Marshall has represented a well-known fitness equipment manufacturer. Using a principle of bankruptcy law he argued was applicable to certain legacy products, Marshall was able to resolve literally scores of personal-injury claims all across the country without any payment whatsoever by either the client or the client's insurer.
- Marshall defended an insurance company in a substantial fidelity coverage claim brought by a large local bank, resulting in a jury verdict in favor of the defendant. Jurors interviewed after the verdict took special note of certain special tactical decisions Marshall made as being important to their decision.
