Thoroughness And Integrity For Over Twenty Years

The founder of our firm, Kermit D. Marsh, is a shrewd counselor and accomplished litigator who is known for his diligent and hands-on approach to the practice of law. For more than twenty-five years, he has helped clients, particularly in Orange County and Greater Los Angeles, overcome legal challenges and achieve their goals.

Mr. Marsh completed dual majors in Economics and History at Stanford University, where he graduated with Phi Beta Kappa and Omicron Delta Epsilon honors. While at Stanford, he served as Treasurer and Co-Chair of the Stanford Viennese Ball, Stanford’s pre-eminent student-run formal event. Mr. Marsh also served on the Stanford University Faculty Student Committee on Academic Appraisal and Achievement. Kermit Marsh is a Life Member of the Stanford Alumni Association, and he served on the Stanford Class of 1987 25 Year Reunion Events and Attendance Committee. Mr. Marsh is also a member of Stanford Professionals in Real Estate.

Mr. Marsh received his Doctorate of Jurisprudence (J.D.) in 1990 from the prestigious Boalt Hall School of Law (recently renamed Berkeley Law School) at the University of California at Berkeley. In law school, he served as a Moot Court Advisor, Appellate Advocacy Advisor, and as a Member of the Moot Court Board. For his excellence in the Moot Court program, Mr. Marsh was honored with the Oralist Commendation, laying the foundation for his future success as a trial and appellate attorney. Mr. Marsh served as Chairman of the Boalt Hall Class of 1990 5th Reunion Committee, and he served as a Board Member or Co-Chair for the Boalt Hall Class of 1990 10th, 15th, 20th and 25th Reunion Committees.

Today his established business and civil litigation practice covers a wide spectrum that would include contract disputes, real estate transactions, commercial leases, employment matters, health care law, environmental law, administrative law, unfair competition, eminent domain, insurance coverage and more.

Wide Success In Litigation And Appeals

Kermit Marsh is admitted to practice in the California Superior Courts, the California Courts of Appeals and the California Supreme Court, as well as all four federal district courts of California (Central, Southern, Eastern and Northern Districts) and the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. Mr. Marsh has also represented clients pro hac vice before the United States District Courts for Arizona, Nevada and Oregon and before the Delaware Court of Chancery. He has also represented clients before the California Medical Board, the California Board of Registered Nursing, the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals, the California State Board of Equalization, the California Unemployment Insurance Appeals Board, Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services (JAMS), Judicate West, ADR, and the American Arbitration Association (AAA).

Mr. Marsh brings diverse experience in civil litigation, including two landmark cases:

— For 10 years he served as defense liaison counsel in the California Judicial Council Coordinated Fertility Litigation, a complex litigation involving more than 150 lawsuits over alleged misappropriation and disposition of human eggs and embryos.

— He represented the City of Newport Beach in a precedent-setting case (Teter v. City of Newport Beach) before the California Supreme Court. The high court’s decision reversed two lower court rulings against the city and overturned a prior anti-law enforcement apellate decision. The victory restored full immunity to law enforcement agencies for injuries to and by inmates in local jails, sparing taxpayers from millions of dollars in lawsuits.
