F&P Spotlight on Principal Stephen J. Marshall

What’s your favorite thing about working with your clients?
When the phone rings at 3:30 a.m., it’s usually not good news, but working with clients through the really bad times and difficult cases makes the good results we obtain together extremely gratifying.

Tell us something about you that few of your colleagues and clients would know.
I had aspirations to be a classical singer.  I had six years of classical voice training, and as I was graduating high school, I passed up on a scholarship offer to be a vocal performance major in order to pursue pre-law.  Back in the day, I could carry a tune.

What do you like to do outside the office?
I’m actively involved in Stonewall Baltimore, a sports league that raises funds for local LGBTQ charitable causes. Travel, baking, checking out the exceptionally good food scene in Baltimore, and hanging out with my very bestest good boy Gus also keeps me pretty busy.

What is your all-time favorite city or town, and why?
At the very tip of Cape Cod, where the Pilgrims first landed after crossing the sea, sits a former Portuguese fishing village called Provincetown. The ocean, the beaches, the climate, the architecture, the food, the people – it’s just perfect.

What was the best news you ever received?
That I was going to be a big brother – twice.
