Marcus Fifer is a litigation lawyer at FVF law.
Raised in Kerrville, Texas, Marcus has spent the last decade traversing I-35. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Economics and Rhetoric & Writing at the University of Texas at Austin and then his law degree at Baylor Law in Waco.
At Baylor Law, Marcus excelled in the Practice Court program and earned multiple individual and team awards through oral and written advocacy competitions, including awards for the Best National Team, Best Petitioner’s Brief, Second Best Speaker of the National Veterans Law Moot Court Competition, as well as National Quarter finalist at the National College of Trial Lawyers’ National Trial Competition.
After law school, Marcus worked as an associate at a large Dallas law firm. He gained valuable litigation experience in a variety of practice areas including labor and employment, construction, personal injury (plaintiff and defense), trademark/intellectual property, and family law. Working in several different areas of law showed Marcus that he prefers spending his time helping those who have been personally injured.
Marcus returned to Austin in 2019 to join FVF Law and is excited to be dedicating his practice to personal injury and helping victims put their lives back together after they’ve been injured.
Outside the office, Marcus can be found polishing his American Sign Language skills and coaching Mock Trial at the University of Texas. Marcus also enjoys exploring Austin and all that it has to offer.
A special message to the friends and potential new clients of FVF Law:
FVF’s client contract has, for a long time, contained the following termination clause: “FVF Law is a values-driven law firm, and because diversity is a value we support, “good cause” [for termination] shall include any expression by the client of intolerance with respect to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.”
Now more than ever, FVF recognizes the global need to combat racism proactively, and to do so with more than just words. This firm was built on the mission of being better. Better lawyers. Better advocates. Better people.
We all know being better requires an ongoing commitment to learning, growth, introspection, and change. We enthusiastically embrace that commitment and hereby pledge to do more than just talk about it. Stay tuned on our blog and facebook page for more about what FVF is doing to back this important global effort.
In the meantime, we would respectfully request new clients who find their own views incompatible with this pledge to consider contacting another firm to handle their case. In any case, we invite you to provide honest feedback by emailing email@example.com.
Josh and Aaron, and all of FVF Law
