Marc is the founder and co-owner of the National Law Institute and its CLE Program. He is also the Executive Vice President of Kensington Vanguard National Land Services, a large national title insurance agency based in New York City.
Marc grew up on Long Island and attended Duke Law School. After graduating from Duke in 1987, he practiced law in New York for 17 years, including stints at the firms Milbank Tweed, Olshan Grundman, and Bachner Tally as well as at his own small firm. In 2004, he brought his many years of hands-on experience as an attorney to the title insurance business where he works directly with real estate attorneys, developers, and lender clients.
In 2006, he saw a need for top quality, highly substantive CLE delivered in a relaxed and comfortable setting. He presented his first two large classes that year and another two in 2007.
In 2008, he decided to both expand and shrink the program by adding many more classes but in much smaller settings of 30 to 40 attorneys per class. This change to smaller classes has proven to be wildly popular as it creates an interactive atmosphere conducive to give-and-take between the instructors and attendees which, in turn, produces real learning.
In 2013, he merged his program and website with the National Law Institute in order to further broaden the classes and other services he can provide to attorneys all over the country.
