Marshall J. Hendrickson Shareholder
Bad Faith Litigation
Marshall defends his clients in the areas of insurance, construction, and complex litigation. He is grateful to be in a career that he loves, where he can be an advocate for people going through one of life’s toughest challenges: facing a lawsuit. Marshall represents developers, general contractors, and subcontractors in construction defect actions and other disputes involving horizontal or vertical construction projects. He represents people who, going about their lives, have found themselves on the other end of a life-changing (and sometimes tragic) event. Marshall also counsels insurance companies on coverage disputes and other contractual legal issues. While he can’t guarantee the outcome of a lawsuit, Marshall’s goal is to work smarter and harder to secure the best outcome possible for his clients.
Marshall believes it is important to begin with the end in mind. In fact, early on he got in the habit of reading the final chapter of a novel first so he can enjoy going back and connecting the dots from the start. Lawsuits are serious; they require a full view and understanding of the process, pitfalls, and roadblocks. Through planning and preparation, Marshall devotes himself to discovering creative, practical, and strategic solutions to the challenges both common and unique to every case.
Whether a small claims trial or a constitutional issue on appeal, Marshall assists every client with the attention and care they deserve. Marshall is a devout follower of the “sundown rule,” meaning he promises his clients a response to their calls and messages the same day they leave them. Marshall’s clients can be confident they will be kept up to date on the status of their cases and given an honest and regular evaluation of their options moving forward.
Marshall is happily the father of 4 (soon to be 5) and, according to them, curator of the world’s best dad jokes. On fall weekends, you are most likely to find him with his whistle and clipboard on the sideline of a football field, coaching up a young group of junior high or high school athletes. Marshall lived in Japan for two years, where he learned to speak the language, love the culture, and crave the food.
