Sound Advice for Alaska Accident Victims
Accident victims are regularly frustrated at the difficulty of presenting claims for accident losses without the assistance of a lawyer. Insurance company representatives often discuss complicated legal issues, but they fail to address legal issues that impact the claim. Many accident victims are humiliated when they try to describe the impact of the accident, and their credibility is attacked. The legal team at Marc June can help ensure you understand your rights and the steps you must take throughout the process.

Personal injuries and death happen in many ways. Marc June works hard to obtain full compensation for Alaska accident victims. Marc June represents victims of all types of accidents, including aviation accidents, maritime accidents and workplace accidents.

Marc June welcomes the opportunity to thoughtfully and sensitively answer any questions and concerns you have about recovering compensation for wrongful death.
His diligent work on your behalf is performed on what is called a contingency fee. This means that Marc June receives no fee until you are paid by the individual, persons or business whose negligence led to your serious injury.

Is your firm willing to help a client with one discrete part of a case, without taking on the whole case?

Injury claims are complicated and involve many legal issues aside from determining who is at fault for an injury.

Marc June

I have practiced law in Alaska since 1980, and managed my own law office since 1996. Prior to 1996, I was a partner in Birch, Horton, Bittner & Cherot, one of Alaska 's largest law firms. In addition to being a member of the Alaska Bar Association, I am admitted to practice before United States District Court for Alaska , the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. I am also an inactive member of the California Bar Association. I have been rated AV by Martindale-Hubbell, signifying quality representation and high ethical standards.

I graduated in 1980 from UCLA School of Law, where I was a member of the UCLA Law Review and an editor of the UCLA-Alaska Law Review. I received my undergraduate degree in 1977 with distinction from Stanford University.

There are a number of organizations to which attorneys representing accident victims belong. I am a Sustaining member in the American Association of Justice(AAJ), formerly known as the American Trial Lawyers Association (ATLA), a member of the Alaska Academy of Trial Lawyers (AATL) and a member of the American Bar Association (ABA). Because of my trial experience, I have been elected to the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), and am currently Vice President of the Alaska chapter. As an attorney representing accident victims, I receive valuable support and information from these organizations.

Over the years I have been active within the Alaska Bar Association. Currently, I serve on the Civil Rules Committee for the Alaska Court System, serve on the Board of Directors for Alaska Legal Services Corporation, and am a member of the Ethics Committee for the Alaska Bar Association.

In the past, I have been a member of the Board of Governors of the Alaska Bar Association, the body responsible for supervising the activities of all Alaska lawyers. I have also at various times been on the Fee Arbitration Panel and Area Disciplinary Panel for the Alaska Bar Association. Other past volunteer activities include being a member of the Brother Francis Shelter Advisory Board, Chairman of the Anchorage Transportation Commission and on the Member Advisory Committee for Chugach Electric Association, the utility cooperative providing power to many Anchorage residents.

I have also been chosen to be listed in both SuperLawyers and The Best Lawyers in America.
