Before Marc had any idea he would get into the practice of law, he began an acting career at age 6 appearing on Sigmund and the Sea Monsters. At the age of 10, Marc, joined the Long Beach Jewish Community Center workshops. His first scene was from Sweet Charity and he was hooked on musical theater. The following 8 years included continued Summer Stock musical performances, plays and founding his High Schools Drama Club.
Upon acceptance into UC Irvine's Theater Department he came down with meningitis and had a brush with death. On the verge of losing his life and then beating the illness, it was goodbye college and off to the Hollywood grind. Studying with various singing, acting and dancing coaches, he set out to be a triple threat.
Pounding the pavements, audition after audition, bit parts, B-movies, cable movies, commercials, public service announcements, plays, musicals and tons of rejections.
Marc began writing and decided that if anyone was going to turn him down for a part again, it would be, him. Driven by his thirst to create and produce, in 1992, he went back to school and earned his Jurist Doctorate Degree and became an Attorney so that he could earn enough money to produce the plays and films he was writing.
In 1999, along with his life-long friend, Dave Cohen, they opened Res Ipsa Productions and produced the first play he wrote, Terminal, based on his near death experience. As an actor and writer, Marc has been nominated and won several awards for his work on such films as, Commute, Grappling with your Demons and was awarded the Golden Halo Award from the Southern California Motion Picture Council for his performance in Falling Down.
While juggling his film career Marc became an intense Criminal Defense attorney fighting for the rights of the wrongly accused and joined the fight against Cannabis Prohibition in California and across the nation. Together with his older brother, Craig, they formed the POT BROTHERS AT LAW, to help spread the word for Cannabis Legalization.
Along they way they developed a plan to educate all Citizens of the United States with regards to their constitutional right to remain silent and how to deal with the Police when pulled over. They created the SHUT THE FUCK UP (#STFU) campaign which has now gone viral on Instagram and Snapchat. Marc is also a member of NORML (the foremost organization for Cannabis Reform) and on the Board of California Cannabis Voice, a Political Action Committee geared toward ending Cannabis Prohibition in California and seeking Legalization in 2016.

Have You Been Arrested?
The criminal process could unearth many uncertainties. We can answer your questions along the way.
This firm was able to get 4 felony charges, 2 arrests a few years apart, dismissed due to unreasonable search and seizure and lying under oath. I would not trust my freedoms to any other firm. Plus they went to bat for me and was able to successfully get an Court Order to return all the medical cannabis, money, phones, wax, edibles, for my Delivery service I used to run. They are also educating the cannabis community on their civil rights and CA laws. Follow them on Instagram, Pot_Brothers_At_Law.
