Mr. Rushbanks (Marchbanks) proved himself effective in a courtroom setting early on by captaining a moot court team in law school.

In practice he has honed his skill in the courtroom performing criminal defense as a clerk for the Federal Public Defenders of Eastern Washington and Idaho, and as a defense attorney in Washington and Oregon since moving to Vancouver.
