Marc has earned a reputation as a successful divorce and family law attorney through his deep knowledge of the law, integrity, and impressive track record of helping to protect his clients' interests.

He honed his writing skills in the Appeals Bureau, where he drafted appellate briefs and argued cases before the Massachusetts Court of Appeals and the Supreme Judicial Court, including successfully writing and arguing a case before the SJC which established black letter law that continues to guide law enforcement to this day. In the trial division Marc worked with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, trying nearly a thousand cases, involving all major felonies ranging from armed robbery to first-degree murder, with a primary focus on violent gang prosecution.
Before joining Koiles Pratt, Marc was General Counsel and Senior Vice President for a rapidly growing manufacturing company outside Boston where he developed a wealth of civil litigation and commercial transaction experience focusing on mergers and acquisitions as well as the drafting and negotiation of global sales and distribution agreements.
