A member of the local legal community since 1990, licensed as an attorney in 1979, Marc previously practiced in Sycamore after arriving here from Chicago, where he forged an innovative real estate and development based practice during the 1980’s.

Marc holds degrees from Northwestern University, a B.A. attained in 1975, M.M. in 1976, and J.D. (cum laude) in 1979.
