RJ Marse is a litigator representing energy companies in a wide range of cases, including tax disputes, maritime collision cases, and indemnity claims, to name a few.

For RJ, the most attractive part of his job is working with others to figure out how to get the best result in a case, and seeing that plan through to completion.  ”That’s why I came to work at Liskow – I know that I can knock on the door of any other lawyer in the firm at any time and get valuable insight based on top notch skill and experience.” RJ enjoys the process of developing a case for trial, no matter the subject matter. He has experience in each step of that process, from drafting the petition, to examining witnesses in court, to filing an appeal.

Before joining the firm, he clerked for two federal judges, Chief Judge Brian A. Jackson, United States District Court for the Middle District of Louisiana, and Judge W. Eugene Davis, United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

After Hours

“I like to get outside and be active as much as I can. When I’m not in the office, you can find me playing some type of sport – most likely golf or basketball — or following my wife Courtney on some sort of adventure of her choosing. I was born and raised in the New Orleans area, and after spending a decade away college and law school, I’m thrilled to be back in the city. My wife is an artist and designer, and we live in Mid-City New Orleans.”
