Marc I. Willick

Associate Attorney
Los Angeles, California

Marc Willick is an aggressive fighter on behalf of the victims of mesothelioma and their families. He joined Weitz & Luxenberg in 2015, bringing with him 20+ years of battle-tested experience running his own law firm and associating with several prominent, prestigious Los Angeles legal offices - experience that helped deliver one victory after another.

These include a $12-million asbestos verdict for a 65-year-old Navy veteran diagnosed with mesothelioma decades after working in the engine rooms aboard ship, a $9.9-million verdict for a 74-year-old former stillman and rigger at an oil refinery where he was exposed to asbestos-containing equipment and components, a nearly $1.8-million verdict for a 62-year-old mesothelioma victim who was a Navy yard welder and pipefitter, and a $3-million settlement extracted from a company that supplied asbestos-laden pipe to a repairman who breathed deadly dust using it in residential HVAC work in Marc's hometown of El Segundo, California. These and many more impressive triumphs contributed to Mr. Willick being named a "Southern California Rising Star" of the legal profession by Super Lawyers magazine.

Mr. Willick is admitted to practice law in California and to appear in federal court in California. He entered practice in 1994 following completion of his legal studies at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, from which he obtained a juris doctor degree. Mr. Willick has remained connected to Loyola by volunteering at the Loyola Law School Center for Conflict Resolution as an over-the-phone dispute mediator. Mr. Willick also holds a bachelor of arts degree in communications from the University of California at San Diego, received in 1991.

An NCAA swimmer back in college and named an All-American for his aquatic prowess in high school, Mr. Willick today in his spare time coaches masters swimming at Loyola Marymount University and still competes in the sport, now at the masters level. He won first-place honors for his age group (10th overall) in the 2000 Waikiki Roughwater Swim and took first-place again for his age group (3rd overall in the wetsuit division) in the Alcatraz-to-San Francisco Sharkfest swim. Since 1986, Mr. Willick has been a lifeguard keeping swimmers and surfers safe along the beaches of Los Angeles County.
