Specialist in Complex Bankruptcy and State Insolvency Cases

Gary N. Marks has more than 40 years’ experience practicing law in New Jersey state and federal courts and has specialized in insolvency and debtor-creditor law since 1983.

Admitted to the New Jersey bar in 1977, Gary served as a judicial clerk to the Honorable Joseph G. Barbieri and the Honorable Richard P. Muscatello of the Superior Court of New Jersey in Union County. Following his clerkship, Gary learned the nuts and bolts of practicing law, working for four years as a general practitioner with the firm of Pappas & Dillon, Esqs., in Elizabeth, N.J. His exposure on a daily basis to numerous substantive areas of law (e.g., commercial, corporate, contract, UCC, litigation) would prove invaluable in the future when issues involving multiple practice areas would constantly arise in his insolvency cases.

Seeking more challenging work, in 1983 Gary accepted a position with Ravin, Greenberg & Zackin, PC, a highly regarded insolvency boutique firm in Roseland, N.J., that in 1990 would rebrand itself as Ravin, Greenberg and Marks, PC. During 18 years at the Ravin firm, Gary honed his craft, becoming one of the top New Jersey attorneys in the field.

In 2001, Gary was approached by the firm of Norris, McLaughlin & Marcus, PA (now Norris McLaughlin, PA), a mid-sized regional law firm serving the New Jersey-New York-Pennsylvania market, to develop and lead a bankruptcy practice group. In time, he recruited and formed a group of seasoned insolvency attorneys offering quality legal representation to all of the key players in insolvency proceedings ― debtors, creditors’ committees, trustees, assignees for the benefit of creditors, receivers, secured creditors, landlords, municipalities and more.

Also while at the Norris firm, Gary was appointed by the Office of the United States Trustee as an operating Chapter 11 trustee in several difficult cases, as well as serving as a state court assignee for creditors and court-appointed receiver in important matters.

Finally, after almost 20 years at the Norris firm, Gary opted to form his own firm, the Law Offices of Gary N. Marks LLC, located in Oldwick, N.J., where he continues to offer quality insolvency law services to clients in need.
