Marcus is a big believer in the power of mediation to resolve disputes. Prior to attending law school, Marcus mediated cases for the Maricopa County Justice Courts from 1996-1999, conducting dozens of mediations as a volunteer for small claims matters brought before the court. Marcus's heavy involvement in the program led to his selection as a mediation trainer and to his being selected for an Arizona Supreme Court subcommittee on establishing the first credentialing process for mediators in Arizona. During law school, Marcus continued to volunteer as a Mediator, mediating employment discrimination claims for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity's ADR office. In 2012 Marcus completed Georgia's requirements for mediation within the state of Georgia, and has conducted private mediations for litigants since.
