About the Author
Marc Garfinkle didn’t want a job, but he wanted to practice law in San Francisco in 1978. So, immediately after his swearing-in, he hung out a shingle. He knew that he didn’t need a job; he just needed clients – people who were able to pay for his services. Happily, he found a few clients, mostly other lawyers. In the process, he gained some mentors – experienced lawyers that took an interest in his practice and who helped him as he stumbled around in the dark.
Marc Garfinkle has been a civil and criminal trial lawyer for over thirty years. An award-winning speaker, he is a professor of Persuasion and Advocacy at Seton Hall University Law School and teaches for the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA). He is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the American Association for Justice, and the Association for Continuing Legal Education (ACLEA). Marc is past Chair of the New Jersey Supreme Court District VB Attorney Ethics Committee.
Marc is also a Public Defender in Livingston, New Jersey and he offers interactive workshops in Advocacy, Ethics and Persuasive Speaking to lawyers and law students. He is a frequent guest on radio and television and offers training to bar associations and law schools. He speaks to new lawyers from his book, “$olo Contendere – How to Go Directly from Law School into the Practice of Law Without Getting a Job.”
