Mr. Marshall has also tried numerous commercial cases, including contract, non-compete, unfair competition, fraud and a $70 million divorce case.

Mr. Marshall has also been active in pro bono work. He has served as lead appointed counsel in an instance in which the district court granted a writ of habeas corpus; handled appellate work for Voices for Children; and served as special counsel to the Advisory Committee on St. Louis Public Schools.

From 2003 to 2010, Mr. Marshall served as an adjunct professor of law at Washington University, where he taught the Appellate Clinic. In 2007, Chief Judge James Loken appointed Mr. Marshall to the Federal Advisory Committee for the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.

Education
J.D., Order of the Coif
Class of 1999

Washington University School of Law (WULS) is a private American law school located in St. Louis, Missouri.[1] The law school is one of the seven graduate and undergraduate schools at Washington University in St. Louis. Founded in 1867, the School of Law is the oldest continually operating private law school west of the Mississippi River.

B.A. in Chemistry, magna cum laude
Class of 1993

The mission of Washington University in St. Louis is the promotion of learning — learning by students and by faculty. Teaching, the transmission of knowledge, is central to our mission, as is research, the creation of new knowledge. Faculty — composed of scholars, scientists, artists and members of the learned professions — serve society by teaching; by adding to the store of human art, creativity, understanding, and wisdom; and by providing direct services, such as health care. The university offers more than 90 programs and almost 1,500 courses leading to bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees in a broad spectrum of traditional and interdisciplinary fields, with additional opportunities for minor concentrations and individualized programs.

Organic Chemistry

The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI), one of the world's largest, private, non-profit research organizations, stands at the forefront of basic biomedical science, a vital segment of medical research that seeks to comprehend the most fundamental processes of life. Over the last decades, the institute has established a lengthy track record of major contributions to the betterment of health and the human condition. The institute — which is located on campuses in La Jolla, California, and Jupiter, Florida — has become internationally recognized for its research into immunology, molecular and cellular biology, chemistry, neurosciences, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular diseases, virology, and synthetic vaccine development. Particularly significant is the institute's study of the basic structure and design of biological molecules; in this arena TSRI is among a handful of the world's leading centers. The institute’s educational programs are also top-rate. The Kellogg School of Science and Technology is currently ranked among the best in the nation in its fields of biology and chemistry. Rather than isolating faculty members, students, and laboratories into separate and distinct disciplines, as is generally prescribed in universities, a cooperative, collaborative spirit is encouraged and embraced. While the level of scientific investigation is intense, the atmosphere is collegial, relaxed, and informal. Technicians, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and administrative support staff all are considered part of the team and are given the latitude and responsibility to accomplish their tasks so as to serve the best interests of science. The pursuit of scientific excellence is paramount and all efforts are directed toward that end. The bulk of the institute's funding is derived from the National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies. In today's environment of increasing competition for shrinking federal dollars, however, collaborative industrial partnerships with leading pharmaceutical companies provide additional funding in several areas key to the organization's research objectives. The Scripps Research Institute's adherence to the highest scientific standards, emphasis on a multidisciplinary approach to problem solving, participation in the perpetuation of knowledge through education, and continual pursuit of research excellence provide an unparalleled scientific environment.
