Marshall Lee PortiventMarshall Lee Portivent

Marshall Lee Portivent, Jr.
Marshall Lee Portivent, our Associate Attorney, was born into a working-class family from South Georgia. Growing up, he went to school and worked at his family’s small construction business. While in college, Marshall continued to work to pay for his education.  He earned his Associate's degree in Political Science with Honors. After two years of working as an over-the-road, long haul truck driver, he went back to college, where he graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and a Minor in History. Soon thereafter, Marshall began studying at Mercer University School of Law. He interned for a Superior Court Judge and worked at a personal injury and workers' compensation law firm, where he discovered that he wanted to spend his career helping injured individuals. In his 3rd year of law school, he was selected to join the prestigious and very selective William A. Bootle Inn of Court, and represented Mercer at the AAJ Mock Trial Competition. 

Marshall has many years of experience working in litigation at reputable law firms. After working as a litigator at renowned law firms representing insurance companies and corporations for several years, Marshall decided it was time to switch sides, and pursue his passion for representing the injured individuals and their families. 

Due to his experience in the insurance industry, Marshall has distinctive insight into how insurance companies work, and, more importantly, how they value cases. Additionally, having worked in the real world as a truck driver and working his way through school, he has developed a unique perspective on what it is like for real, hard-working people to have their finances compromised when they get hurt, through no fault of their own. This is not just a job to Marshall - this is his calling.
