In a civil matter in which he represented the defendants, he responded untimely to discovery with unverified, blanket objections. When the plaintiff filed a motion to compel answers, he failed to oppose the motion timely and did not attend the hearing. He was ordered to provide discovery responses.Although Marcus traveled to Las Vegas on one occasion to meet with his clients, he failed to keep them updated on the status of the case. A default judgment was entered, but he failed to promptly notify the clients.He stipulated that he failed to perform legal services competently or keep a client informed about significant developments in a case. In mitigation, he has no prior record of discipline and he demonstrated his remorse.
