Marshall Taheri, an A-V rated attorney who has been practicing law for more than 45 years to include international litigation and arbitration before U.S. and international courts, is a former advocacy judge, and professor emeritus.
In 1982, Professor Taheri was appointed by the Greater Houston Partnership to form an Ad Hoc Committee to study pending legislation before the United States Congress in Washington, D.C., and the impact of such legislation on the Houston economy. He submitted an oral presentation to the board members of the Greater Houston Partnership on the findings of the Ad Hoc Committee. Subsequently, he and the late Honorable Louie Welch, former mayor of Houston and then President of the Greater Houston Partnership, traveled to Washington, D.C., where Professor Taheri testified as an expert before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee of the U.S. Congress in Washington, D.C., in support of the pending legislation which subsequently became a law through unanimous vote by the U.S. Congress.
