Contact Marcus Priest
Marcus was born and raised in Ashdown, Arkansas. Marcus was an avid sports player growing up, and after a brief stint with college baseball, decided to pursue a career in law. He enjoys the team atmosphere and competition which reminds him of his ball playing days.
Marcus attended Arkansas Tech University, graduating in 2014 with a B.A. in History, and a minor in Pre-Law. It was during his study of history that he took American Legal History, which ultimately led him to apply to law school. Marcus obtained his law degree in 2018 from the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville.
Marcus wants to practice law to advocate for those who cannot do so for themselves. “I grew up in a small rural town, and many times during my youth I had friends or family who found themselves in situations where they could not help themselves without an attorney. I made the decision in college to pursue a career in law so I could be that dependable attorney that helps those in need,” Marcus states.
Marcus wants to help those who find themselves in a bind and need a trustworthy attorney to be by their side. “Many people find themselves in a bad situation at no fault of their own, and they need someone who will help them receive the help and justice they deserve,” said Marcus.
In his free time, Marcus is an avid Arkansas Razorbacks fan. Whether it is Reynolds Razorback Stadium, Bud Walton Arena, or Baum-Walker Stadium, it is safe to say he is somewhere calling the hogs. Marcus is also an avid outdoorsman and enjoys hunting, fishing, and hiking the beautiful trails of Arkansas.
