Born on Chicago's West side on September 24, 1944 to Jack and Lillian Benn, Marvin graduated from the University of Illinois with a degree in electrical engineering. He went on to earn a juris doctorate from the University of Illinois in 1971. Marvin was a founding partner of the law firm Hamman and Benn, where he specialized in intellectual property law.

Marvin is survived by his wife Karen (nee Katz) Benn, whom he married on November 4, 1979, his son Aaron (Diana) Benn, two daughters Lauren Benn and Samantha Benn, and brother-in-law Robert (Sharon) Katz.
