Marc Yussman

Marc Yussman, 50, died June 13, 2008. Marc was passionate — about his family, about his work, and about his life. An avid gardener, Marc liked to help things grow, including his community and his clients. An outstanding real estate lawyer and entrepreneur, he was the Managing Partner of Marc Yussman & Associates before merging into Goldberg Simpson.
