Updated January 14, 2018 11:37:45 NFL attorney John Marshall has been hit with bankruptcy claims totaling $1,222,400.
According to a bankruptcy filing in Florida, Marshall filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in December, which would allow him to pay back creditors with no interest, but only if the payments are made within a certain time frame.
Marshall, a Florida attorney, filed the bankruptcy petition in the state of Florida in August and is awaiting payment.
Marshall is currently working on a case with a major NFL player.
He has worked with players such as Jameis Winston, Odell Beckham Jr., Dez Bryant, and the San Francisco 49ers, but he has also represented several NFL players in lawsuits.
Marshall’s bankruptcy filing states that his assets are valued at $1 million.
The bankruptcy court judge, Richard E. DeGuglielmo, denied Marshall’s request for a delay in his payment plan, saying that he is willing to make a payment.
The judge added that Marshall’s case is very complex and that he will have to pay the debts as they become due.
Marshall has also had a long-standing relationship with the NFL and the NFLPA, which was formed in 2009.
Marshall had been representing players such Asante Samuel, Brandon Marshall, and DeAndre Hopkins, but that relationship ended this year.
Marshall also worked for former Browns receiver Josh Gordon and is currently representing former Ravens receiver Justin Tucker.
Marshall previously represented former Panthers receiver Jeremy Maclin, and he represented quarterback Ryan Tannehill in a recent lawsuit against the NFL.
Marshall was a member of the Florida National Guard and was on the Army National Guard staff for the past several years.
The National Guard is a reserve component of the military, which includes the National Guard Reserves.
Marshall will continue to represent NFL players, including receivers.
Marshall did not respond to a request for comment from Bleacher Beat.
