Her background reflects her versatility: A former television news anchor and managing partner of a real estate company, Marissa enlists a personable nature to connect with clients, and then engages a gift for multi-tasking to meet their needs.
Her experience as a litigator includes representing a business owner for alleged violations of trade secrets, and earning a temporary restraining order against an employee who threatened violations of his company’s noncompete clause.
