Death Announced of Mark Daniel ‘Dan’ Marderosian, 59, of Old Lyme; Noted Attorney, Who Took on Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones, Ku Klux Klan, Among Many Others

OLD LYME — Mark Daniel Marderosian, known to many who loved him as Dan, of Old Lyme, CT, died on Monday, December 6, at the home he shared with his wife, the “love of his life,” Maris Wacs, after a long fight with a rare form of cancer. He was 59 …

He was a noted attorney, who took on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and the Ku Klux Klan in the courts …

He was modest about his contributions as an attorney, but one former colleague said he was “the best of the profession” who brought to the law “sensitivity, intuition, passion, compassion” and scholarship and who infused “the law with such creativity that it is astounding.” …

He fought for United Sates citizens in Puerto Rico seeking Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security benefit parity. He successfully took on the Austrian government and industry in a Nazi-era reparations fight …

In addition to his wife, Maris, he is survived by his son Jordan Feinstein and daughter in-law Abigail Clyne, his daughter Sydney Kriegsman and son-in-law David Kriegsman, and his daughter Lindsey Feinstein and her partner Dylan Young. …

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Dan’s honor to Safe Futures CT (SafeFutruresct.org) and High Hopes (HighHopestr.org)
