In 1980 Marc started his career as a federally licensed aircraft mechanic. Marc holds three ratings in aircraft maintenance technology: airframe, powerplant, and 2nd class radio operation. He worked for Pan American Airlines for 10 years. In 1990, he was hired by New York City Transit as a track equipment maintainer where he worked at a union shop steward and vice-chairman for Transport Workers Union Local 100 for 25 out of his 27 years.
During his career at Transit, Marc became interested in law and earned a paralegal certificate from York College, CUNY. While in the union, Marc met Joel Fredericson and came to work for him in 2013 as a paralegal after attending Abraham Lincoln University School of Law. In 2015, Marc left Joel’s office and returned in 2018 after retiring from Transit in 2017. In 2020, he completed his master’s degree in Dispute Resolution from Touro University.
As a former shop steward, and elected officer; Marc’s life has been a career of service to others. Helping people navigate through troubled waters is his specialty and dedication. The firm recently interviewed a potential claimant. When Marc found out the claimant had the same form of aggressive brain cancer that killed his father, he recommend her her personal doctor. Today, although her comp case is not established, the claimant’s brain cancer is in total remission and her surgeons are in disbelief. Recently, she spoke to Marc and said that she ran up a flight of stairs in the subway. She is 68 years old and said, “ I haven’t ran up a flight of stairs in 20 years.” This is the type of case that Marc lives for. This is what makes working at Schotter Millican, LLP the most rewarding job in Marc’s 41 years of working. It is truly, “ law for workers.”
