For more than 30 years, attorney Steven C. Marks has dedicated his practice to representing victims of catastrophic accidents and injuries. After going to law school with the goal of helping his father’s construction business, he took a job at the Miami, FL law firm of Podhurst Orseck when Miami’s early-1980s real estate boom slowed. As he later told the Daily Business Review in an interview, it turned out to be an “accidental perfect fit.”
