C. Marshall Friedman

marshall friedmanMarshall Friedman has been actively engaged in the railway labor movement and in the representation of injured railway employees for Approximately 38 years.

Marshall was the recipient of the Outstanding Trial Lawyer Award by the Missouri Bar in 1970. He has been certified as a Civil Trial Advocate by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He is the former President of the American Board of Trial Advocates, Missouri-Southern Illinois Chapter. He is a member of numerous legal organizations and has lectured and written for the Missouri Bar, national publications and other related trail publications. In addition, he is a professor on the faculty of Washington University School of Law and he has been teaching trial practice and procedures for the past 20 years.

Marshall was recently listed in the national publication, “The Best Lawyers in America” to represent injured railroad workers.

Many articles written by Marshall have been published, including: “Lung Damaged Caused by Exposure to TDI,” published in the Courtroom Medicine – Chest, Heart and Lungs, Volume 11, 1986 and the article entitled, “Federal Employers’ Liability Act, Jones Act and Longshoremen’s and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act,”

In Washington, Marshall continues to fight on behalf of rail labor. He is a member of the Railroad Safety Advisory Committee established by the Federal Railroad Administration to make recommendations on rail safety. Historically, the railroads have undermined federal regulations enacted to protect the safety of railroad workers and the public at large. The overwhelming evidence that Marshall and railway labor presented before the Federal Railroad Administration and the Congress of the United States has clearly demonstrated that such disregard for rail safety has caused numerous fatalities, injuries, devastating derailments and toxic pollution of our waterways and atmosphere.

Marshall has represented railway labor organizations before numerous Emergency Boards appointed by Presidents of the United States for the past 20-25 years and has been involved in national negotiations on behalf of rail labor.

Marshall has represented thousands of injured railway employees under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act and has obtained some of the largest jury verdicts in the United States as compensation for those injured employees. Many of these verdicts have been in excess of a million dollars.
