On Thursday, November 10, 2022, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals ordered the suspension of Pennsylvania attorney Marshall L. Williams in consideration of the order of suspension from the state of New Jersey.

The case, titled In Re Marshall L. Williams was brought by the Disciplinary Counsel. Case #DDN2021-D055.

On September 2, 2022, Respondent was suspended from the practice of law in New Jersey for two years.
