In 1993 after leaving the DA's office, he joined Branton & Hall where he litigated personal injury, product liability, medical malpractice, premises liability, wrongful death and negligence.
In 1998 he decided to hang his own shingle with a solo practice focusing on litigation both civil and criminal while continuing to build a growing defense litigation client base in Bexar County as well as South and West Texas. In 1999 he joined with Jamie Parker to form McDowell, Parker and Notzon, where his practice included nursing home litigation, premises liability, auto liability and oil and gas cases.
From 2008 to 2014 Marc served the City of Olmos Park as a Presiding Judge for the Municipal Court in a part-time capacity presiding over traffic and code violation cases.
