Litigation Appellate
  • Biography

    After serving two years as a federal district court law clerk, Marco joined the Litigation Practice Group in the Orange County office of Haynes and Boone, where he focuses on appellate matters.

    In law school, Marco served as an extern to an Orange County appellate justice and as a lead article editor and one of the five members of the executive board of the UC Irvine Law Review. In 2014, he was awarded both the California State Bar’s Wiley W. Manuel Certificate for Pro Bono Legal Services and the Orange County Hispanic Bar Association’s Wally Davis Memorial Scholarship.

    Marco participated in UC Irvine Law’s Ninth Circuit Appellate Litigation Clinic, where he and a fellow law student participated in a pro bono case in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, working under the supervision of a Haynes and Boone appellate partner. The Ninth Circuit panel issued a published decision, including a vigorous dissent, which paved the way for en banc rehearing that resulted in an en banc reversal of Ninth Circuit asylum precedent.
