Mr. Marks has had a varied career in the law. The early years of his practice saw him in the courtroom, litigating primarily personal injury, civil rights and commercial matters. From 1976 through 1995, he served as primary outside counsel for the largest health insurance company in Ohio. In recent years, his practice has focused in the fields of estate planning, trust and probate administration, and the representation of individuals in a broad variety of their legal needs.
Mr. Marks has long been interested in communications and the arts. He represented the family of Cincinnati philanthropists J. Ralph Corbett and Patricia Corbett for many years, and through them gained an increased interest in many of the arts institutions of our community.
Since the early 1970s, he has served as Secretary of Cincinnati Arts Association and its predecessor, Cincinnati Music Hall Association. (CAA operates Music Hall and the Aronoff Center for the Arts, plus the Weston Art Gallery and an education program that serves up to 100,000 school children each year.)
He is also on the board of Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati, and chairs its Governance and Nominating Committee. Further, he is secretary of Greater Cincinnati Arts and Education Center, which in partnership with the Cincinnati Public Schools, recently completed construction of a $62-million School for Creative and Performing Arts; GCAEC also has assumed a commitment to raise permanent funding for the arts programs at this K-12 arts school.
Mr. Marks has volunteered, as well, as a legal advisor and/or volunteer with numerous other non-profit organizations, including a stint as president of Cincinnati-Kharkiv Sister City Project. He has served on the board and as an officer of his own synagogue and other organizations in the Jewish community locally and nationally. Most recently, he was the organizing President of Jewish Cemeteries of Greater Cincinnati, which merged 23 Jewish cemeteries into a single organization.
Mr. Marks always has had an interest in education. Throughout his legal career he has taught at dozens of seminars for lawyers. For 10 years, he taught a college-level course in Broadcast Law, and in recent years, as a board member of the Leavitt Institute for International Development, he has participated in administering and teaching a two-semester course on the Rule of Law and the Jury System in the law schools of several cities in Ukraine, whose new Constitution will provide a guarantee of trial by jury beginning in 2012.
Mr. Marks resides in Clifton (where he serves as president of his homeowners’ association) with his wife of 45 years, Anita; they have two adult daughters, both of whom reside in the San Francisco area.
