His clients have included universities, elected officials, a significant number of municipalities in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties, as well as state agencies.
He handles complex constitutional tort cases with multi-million dollar exposures and media interest, including Fourth Amendment police excessive force and false arrest matters. He has also defended many First Amendment employee terminations, liberty interest, and Eighth Amendment claims.
Mr. Marrero gained valuable research and trial skills early in his career while serving as a Felony Division Chief in the Dade County State Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted homicide cases.
