Business Law & Litigation
Employment & Labor Chair - Of Counsel
Mr. Marsh received his Doctorate of Jurisprudence (J.D.) in 1990 from the prestigious Boalt Hall School of Law (recently renamed Berkeley Law School) at the University of California at Berkeley. Mr. Marsh served as Chairman of the Boalt Hall Class of 1990 5th Reunion Committee, and he served as a Board Member or Co-Chair for the Boalt Hall Class of 1990 10th, 15th, 20th and 25th Reunion Committees.
Kermit Marsh is a Life Member of the Stanford Alumni Association, and he served on the Stanford Class of 1987 25 Year Reunion Events and Attendance Committee. Mr. Marsh is also a member of Stanford Professionals in Real Estate.
Mr. Marsh brings diverse experience in civil litigation, including two landmark cases:
— For 10 years he served as defense liaison counsel in the California Judicial Council Coordinated Fertility Litigation, a complex litigation involving more than 150 lawsuits over alleged misappropriation and disposition of human eggs and embryos.
— He represented the City of Newport Beach in a precedent-setting case (Teter v. City of Newport Beach) before the California Supreme Court. The high court’s decision reversed two lower court rulings against the city and overturned a prior anti-law enforcement apellate decision. The victory restored full immunity to law enforcement agencies for injuries to and by inmates in local jails, sparing taxpayers from millions of dollars in lawsuits.
Mr. Marsh serves the Arlington Law Office as the lead on Business Law, Litigation, Contract, Real Estate, and Employment & Labor.
