Marshall is a partner in the firm's real estate section where he focuses his work on helping clients acquire, finance, develop and lease commercial real estate projects. Marshall has developed significant experience assisting clients with commercial, residential and mixed use condominium and planned unit development projects and the structuring and drafting of complex integrated project documents for these developments.  His work with national and regional homebuilders and developers over the years enables him to bring a deep understanding of industry requirements and the ability to advise clients of potential pitfalls to be avoided.

Owners and operators also retain Marshall to assist them with the leasing of their projects.  Utilizing years of experience and an understanding of the client’s needs, Marshall guides his clients from letter of intent to a signed lease, an efficient and well-organized process.

Outside of the office, Marshall enjoys playing soccer and hiking the Appalachian Trail.  He hopes to one day be able to hike the entire length of the AT in Virginia (he’ll leave the full thru-hike to those that are younger, fitter, and less sane).
