Born and raised in the south side of Chicago, Marco Serrano grew up enveloped in tradition. His father was a self-made downtown building manager and deal-maker, instilling within Marco the values of hard work and the will to fight. As a teenager attending Brother Rice High School, a south side institution, Marco attended his first trial while on a field trip at Cook County Court House. The passion and skill exhibited by the attorneys inspired him to pursue a career in law.
Upon graduating from college, Marco decided to take two gap years to gain more experience in the field. It was then that he walked into an interview and met Howard Ankin. Willing to work his way up to prove his worth, Marco quickly rose through the ranks at Ankin Law Office, eventually serving in the workers compensation department. During this time he assisted over 500 injured workers, witnessing firsthand the obstacles and struggles injured workers face on a daily basis. Further inspired to fight for those who cannot take on the insurance companies, Marco was ready to become an advocate.
During law school, Marco earned top grades in Trial Advocacy and Advanced Trial Advocacy. Marco also excelled in his legal writing classes, and served as a teaching assistant for Legal Writing I, working with first year law students.
In his spare time Marco is involved in the Chicago artistic community, enjoys watching film, and traveling the world to experience different cultures.
