Representative Cases

The cases referenced within this website, IraMarcusPA.com, are but a few of those handled by the Firm. Each case differs as to its individual facts, theories of liability and potential damages, and past results do not guaranty future performance, and prior success in a particular case is not a guarantee of future success. The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision. Before you decide to hire a lawyer, ask that lawyer for written information about that lawyer's qualifications and experience.
