Biography:

After 19 years working in larger firms, Marc joined up with his colleague and long-time friend (since their days at UCLA), John Tiedt, to form Tiedt & Hurd in February 2007. The firm’s practice focuses on representing the “little guy” in serious personal injury matters.

Mr. Hurd graduated cum laude in 1984 with a B.A. in Political Science from UCLA. He then graduated from Hasting College of the Law in June of 1987 and was admitted to practice law in California in December of that year. At Hastings, he was president of the Phi Delta Phi legal fraternity and an active member of the Associated Students.

A veteran of numerous trials, Mr. Hurd has developed the keen trial skills necessary to successfully advocate for his clients, and understands that litigation today requires preparation, hard work and a willingness to “go the distance.” Yet, with that experience comes the respect for the judicial system that recognizes that many cases can, and should, be resolved by utilizing alternative means. With that in mind, Mr. Hurd has also resolved hundreds of cases through arbitration, mediation and negotiation of settlements.

Married with two children (one who is now at the University of Washington and another applying to college), Marc has always been active in his community, working with the YMCA Indian Guide Program, and coaching Little League Baseball and youth soccer. With his children now away at college (or college bound), Marc became a Rotarian, to better serve his community.  He and the firm are also members of the Corona Chamber of Commerce.
