From an early age, Marc was taught the importance of helping others.  That is why he loves being a trial lawyer who helps those who have suffered horrible injuries or lost loved ones because of the bad behavior of others.

After graduating from The Ohio State University College of Law in 1996, Marc initially worked for medium and large sized firms representing insurance companies and big corporations.  Through this experience, he learned how these companies evaluate and defend claims. 

Once Marc gained this experience, he realized he would rather be helping those who were injured by negligence rather than protecting the profit margins of insurance companies.  So, in 2002, Marc began representing victims who wrongly suffered catastrophic injury and loss of life. Since that time, he has limited his practice to representing those hurt as a result of medical negligence, ordinary negligence, and trucking negligence.

Passionate about what he does, Marc has been named to the Top 50 Cincinnati and Top 100 Super Lawyer Lists by Law and Politics and Cincinnati Magazine in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.  He was also named either a Super Lawyer or Rising Star by those same publications in 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.  Marc is also a member of the National Trial Lawyers Top 100 and the National Trial Lawyers Medical Malpractice Top 25.  He is ranked “superb” by Avvo with a perfect 10 out of 10 ranking.

Marc teaches other lawyers frequently.  He has given lectures to lawyers at the Ohio Association for Justice, the Southwest Ohio Trial Lawyers Association, the Cincinnati Bar Association, the Clermont County Bar Association, the Montgomery County Bar Association, and the Florida Bar Association.  Marc is a member of the Board and a Trustee for the Ohio Association for Justice and a Trustee for the Southwest Ohio Trial Lawyers Association.

Marc has been married for almost 24 years and has three children.  When he isn’t practicing law, he can usually be found at one of his kids’ games or on the golf course.

Marc manages Crandall and Pera’s Cincinnati and Dayton offices but represents individuals throughout Ohio and Kentucky.
