"I'm here to help, not to judge."

Attorney Robert L. MarshallAttorney Robert (Bob) L. Marshall is dedicated to defending people accused of crimes in Northern California. He has handled every sort of case and tried more than 100 jury cases, including murder, assault, theft, DUI, and sex offenses.

Serving Clients with Experience & Dedication

Bob spent more than a decade as a television journalist, when several local lawyers and judges encouraged him to make a career change.

After several years in private practice in Chico, he joined the Mendocino County Public Defender's office in 2003 as the senior trial lawyer to get more experience with serious felonies, including murder cases.

In 2005, he moved to the Solano County Public Defender's Office. Then, in 2007, he returned home to Butte County to reestablish his private practice.

Bob is on the board of governors of California Attorneys for Criminal Justice, the nation's largest statewide organization of criminal defense attorneys and allied professionals.
