Marc E. Angelucci, Esq.
Marc E. Angelucci, Esq. is a Los Angeles attorney who practices civil litigation and appellate advocacy and has taken on high profile cases involving paternity fraud and male victims of domestic violence. He was featured in the Los Angeles Times and has appeared as a guest on the Dr. Phil Show, Phil Donahue Show, John and Ken Show, and other radio and media. He has been quoted several times in the Los Angeles Daily Journal and other media sources and has published op-eds in the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Daily Journal, and elsewhere.
Angelucci graduated from UC Berkeley as a phi beta kappa with a B.A. in Philosophy in 2006. Then in 2000 he received his J.D. from UCLA Law, where he won Best Brief Writer, obtained two public interest awards, and founded the Disability Law Society and the Environmental Affairs Committee, both of which are still active. After finishing law school, he practiced mental health law for a non-profit organization in Los Angeles that provides free legal services to people with mental disabilities. He also formed the Los Angeles chapter of the National Coalition For Men ("NCFM"), a nonprofit organization that looks at how sex discrimination affects men and boys, and served as chapter president until 2008. During that time he organized rallies, helped draft paternity fraud legislation, filed numerous civil rights lawsuits, generated significant media attention to issues affecting men and boys, and worked with ARC on a successful lawsuit involving a mistaken circumcision of a non-consenting adult. He also practiced as a family law attorney for the Men’s Legal Center in San Diego, and he teaches a Family Law class at Pasadena City College. The Southern Poverty Law Center's National Campaign for Tolerance designated Angelucci an Honoree of their Wall of Tolerance, co-chaired by civil rights icons Rosa Parks and Morris Dees.
In 2008, Angelucci won a landmark appellate case against the State of California that held it is unconstitutional to exclude male victims of domestic violence from state funding for victim services. Woods v. Horton(2008) 167 Cal.App.4th 658. The decision is available at http://ncfm.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/01/Woods-v-Shewry-published-decision.pdf and a news article summarizing the case is available at www.metnews.com/articles/2008/wood101508.htm
On November 17, 2011, the Los Angeles Daily Journal and San Francisco Daily Journal published Angelucci's op-ed responding to the American Medical Association's irresponsible and unexamined public statement about circumcision. His op-ed is available at http://ncfm.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/111117-Marc-Angeluccis-DJ-Article-re-circumcision.pdf.
