Marvin Nepom JD ’62

Marvin Nepom died in November 2014 at the age of 88. Born in Portland of immigrant parents, he attended the University of Washington. It was there that he met his wife, whom he married at the age of 21. After a decade in the grocery business, and with the encouragement of Leo Levinson, Marvin began to attend law school in the evening. While a student, he frequently told his three young children bedtime stories that incorporated law school themes.

After passing the bar in 1962, Marvin handled a broad array of cases before concentrating on personal injury litigation as a solo practitioner. He served as president of the Multnomah Bar Association for 1981–82.

Marvin is survived by Leah, his wife of 67 years; three children; four grandchildren; and one great-grandchild.
