Real Property Law

Cal. Real. Prop. Journal 2020, VOL. 38, NO. 1

In Memoriam: Marvin Starr

By Paul Marienthal, of Miller Starr Regalia

Our firm, as well as the entire community of California real property lawyers, has lost a great friend and colleague. Marvin Starr was arguably the most well-known real estate tax lawyer of his day.

Through his many industry presentations and formal lecturing at U.C. Berkeley and other places, he taught an entire generation of real estate lawyers and real estate executives how to use the tax law to enhance their transactions for the betterment of their clients.

Marvin not only lectured and spoke constantly during his career, he was also a prolific author. Along with his partner Harry Miller, he authored "The Current Law of California Real Estate," which grew from a few volumes to twelve in its current iteration. This treatise has no real competition and is found in practically every law library in the state and beyond.
