Marshall A. Hevron


Marshall A. Hevron joined Adams and Reese in 2009, and is a Partner in the Litigation Practice Group in the firm's New Orleans office.

Marshall is admitted to practice in Louisiana.

Marshall’s practice is focused on property litigation. He has handled close to twenty expropriation (eminent domain) cases for major utility companies as well as landowners. Due to his significant experience with expropriation cases, Marshall is frequently asked to teach continuing legal education seminars on this topic. Marshall also represents title companies and landowners in property disputes. These cases have provided him with significant trial and appellate court experience.

Prior to law school, Marshall worked in the Washington DC and New Orleans offices of United States Senator Mary Landrieu. Marshall advised Senator Landrieu on national security and veterans policy as well as storm recovery issues. Marshall is able to draw on his experience in the public sector to advise clients on a host of issues including FEMA claims, government contract law, the Louisiana Ethics Code and the Louisiana Public Bid Law. Marshall is also a member of the firm’s charter school team and assists charter school clients in a number of legal issues such as land acquisition, charter expansion and compliance with federal regulations.

Marshall served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve from 1998-2004. Marshall’s unit was mobilized in 2003 and deployed to Iraq. Marshall was awarded the Combat Action Ribbon, the Presidential Unit Citation, and the Iraq Campaign medal. He was honorably discharged as a sergeant. After he came home from the war, Marshall joined his local Veterans of Foreign Wars (“VFW”) post. The once proud organization had been in decline for decades and was facing closure. Marshall and a small group of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans led the revival of the post and it now counts 200 veterans in its membership. The VFW now assists returning veterans by providing housing for wounded vets, assistance with VA claims and employment assistance.

In the community, Marshall is a board member of the Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans, a co-chair of the Young Fellows Steering Committee at the New Orleans Museum of Art, a member of the Young Benefactors Committee at the National World War II Museum, a member of the New Orleans Tricentennial Commission as well as a member of the New Orleans Board of City Trusts and the Louisiana Military Family Assistance Fund.

Marshall received his J.D. from Tulane University School of Law where he also received a Certificate in Civil Law Studies. He received a Bachelor of Arts from St. John's College in 2001.
