Long Beach Loses Legend, Marilyn Green May 11, 2016
Alan Lowenthal, D-CA
"Mr. Speaker, it is with considerable sadness and a profound sense of loss that I report that the Long Beach community lost a dear friend and a dedicated public servant on the passing of Marilyn Green on October 29, 2015. Marilyn—with long-time professional partner Dick Cantrell—founded the law firm of Cantrell Green—now Cantrell Green Pekich Cruz & McCort—in 1971. Marilyn was also the heart and soul of the progressive movement in Long Beach. She was an advocate, mentor, and friend to several generations of progressive leaders in Long Beach. I count myself lucky to have had her friendship and counsel over the years. A native of Newark, New Jersey, Marilyn eventually made her way to Stanford Law School. While attending as one of only two female students in her class, she met and married journalist Terence Green. Determined to finish what she started, she sat for the California Bar exam in 1951 and was admitted to practice law in January, 1952, just one month before her first son, Alan, was born. She used to recall how odd it felt walking to take her oath while almost 9 months pregnant. Terry’s job brought them to Playa del Rey and, eventually, to the Long Beach area that would become their home for well over 50 years. Like many women of her generation, Marilyn found herself unwelcome in many law firms due to her gender and was limited to family law practice. Knowing it was a matter of time before she found the right job, she settled into family law. She used to joke that, as a young lawyer, she had no idea how to create a safe exit strategy while interviewing a less-than-savory character. During one such interview, she decided “the case was much too complicated” and referred the person to the FBI. She later told us “From then on, I decided to keep the FBI’s number in my top drawer, but think I certainly wore out my welcome!” Marilyn joined the prestigious Levy & Van Bourg firm as an applicant’s attorney in Workers’ Compensation in the late 1960s early 1970s. When she and Richard Cantrell first opened Cantrell and Green in 1971, their first office was a public phone booth on the corner of Broadway and Pine Avenue in downtown Long Beach. Later, good friend and union official Tony Rodriguez from the United Rubber Workers Union, would offer them a small office at his Local. Marilyn and Richard would go on to build Cantrell and Green into one of the most well-known and respected workers’ compensation firms in Southern California. Their practice also included social security, labor law, and personal injury claims. Not only did Marilyn Green talk the talk, she walked the walk. When asked why she would settle in a practice not as lucrative as other areas of practice, Marilyn said “If I wanted to make money, I would never have chosen a workers’ compensation practice. However, I love and believe in what I do and that is why I became a lawyer.” Over the years, Marilyn was honored by many organizations, including being named as Long Beach Bar Association Lawyer of the Year. She was a true professional in her work, a good friend to many, and a powerful force for good in our community who will be sorely missed."

Congressional Black Caucus January 11, 2016
Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY
"If you block funding for the ATF, what you essentially are doing is supporting the efforts of the merchants of death who rely on underenforcement by the ATF, because of an absence of resources, in order to flood communities like Chicago; south central Los Angeles; parts of Brooklyn; Newark, New Jersey; and many other neighborhoods with illegal weapons."
