My Approach

Marshall has provided countless hours of expert witness testimony as part of the litigation services MCA continues to offer. He is supported by a knowledgeable architectural staff capable of preparing detailed design documents for the repair of these deficient structures as well as providing coordination and observation during the construction phase.
