R David Marquez

I began my litigation career in a small general practice law firm based in Brentwood, Long Island in the early 1980's focusing on residential real estate transactions, criminal defense and some matrimonial work. Thereafter, I went on to become an associate attorney at a large medical malpractice defense firm in Manhattan where I participated in the medical malpractice defense of hospitals located in New York State. I also participated in a commercial real estate transaction involving the acquisition of a hotel property in Florida while at the same firm. I subsequently, began practicing on my own and then worked at a NYC plaintiff's personal injury law firm trying cases. I went on to serve as trial counsel to several other firms before establishing R. David Marquez, P.C. in the mid 1990's. I have since tried civil, criminal, tax and bankruptcy cases in both state and federal courts. I currently focus my attention on helping home owners stay in their homes by defending against residential foreclosure in addition to serving as trial counsel in other types of actions.
