Michael L. Marshall (September 21, 1957-June 4, 2020) was born in Independence, Kansas to Lawrence Charles and Patsy Ruth Marshall. He is survived by his brother, Charles Richard Marshall, nephew, Zane Marshall, cousin, Ralph LoBuono, and son, Holden M. Marshall.

Michael attended the University of Oklahoma for undergraduate studies and pursued his law degree at the University of Maryland. During law school, he was a chairperson and member of the University of Maryland Moot Court Board, as well as a member of the school's International Moot Court Team and Law Review author. He received the Cunningham Award for exceptional achievement and contribution to the University of Maryland Carey School of Law.

For 38 years, Michael practiced law with the Baltimore-based firm Schlachman, Belsky, Weiner & Davey, P.A. His practice spanned numerous areas of the law, but he was best known for his work in the State appellate courts, especially in matters involving the defense of law enforcement officers. He served as General Counsel for several police unions in the Baltimore area, including the Baltimore County Police Department and the Harford County Sheriff's Office.

In his free time, Michael played the keyboard, wrote fiction, and created numerous works of art, predominantly in pen-and-ink. Several of his pieces, including character portraits of his partners, Supreme Court justices and others, decorated the walls of the law firm. Michael was regarded by many as a true Renaissance Man, tirelessly working to restore his Federal-style home in Bolton Hill while managing an impressive garden year-round. Michael will be forever remembered for his wit, his professional integrity and, above all, his love for his son.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always. Mike was a special person and we've known each other for years. We always talked about his projects at home & his Son Holden playing baseball in his early school years. Mike was devoted to his profession as a very knowledgeable attorney for many FOP lodges. He will be missed by all who knew him.

I had the pleasure of meeting and interacting with Mike throughout my career with BCoPD. To say he was a professional would be an understatement. I always enjoyed watching him in action defending our folks at trial boards.
Mike was a good man. He will be missed by many.

I met Mike through work (BCoPD) I had the pleasure of getting to be around him often while I was assigned to IA. He was a great guy who always had a smile on his face and a funny story to tell. He was a very hard working and determined man who took his job very seriously, but when the job was "off" he was one of the nicest people I've known. It was obvious, through his stories, that he loved his son. I am very sorry for your loss. May his memory be a blessing.
