About Me

Kristen Marks is a Florida licensed attorney. Kristen graduated from Dartmouth College in 1992 and then Magna Cum Laude from the University of Alabama School of Law in 1995. Shortly thereafter, she and her husband, Andrew, also an attorney, moved to the Pensacola, Florida, area to begin their law practices. Kristen built her practice with the law firm of Chase, Quinnell, McIver, Jackson & Marks, P.A. for seven (7) years in the areas of Florida estate planning, probate and guardianship.


 


Then, in 2002, Kristen earned the privilege of becoming an Independent Sales Director with Mary Kay Cosmetics, a position earned by the Top 2% of consultants with the company. For the next six (6) years, Kristen focused on training and mentoring other women to build successful businesses for themselves. During that time, Kristen earned the use of and drove four (4) free company cars, including the famous Pink Cadillac for two (2) years.


 


In 2008, Kristen returned to practicing law, designing 'My Pink Lawyer®' to serve women and their families. With her vast experience serving and mentoring women in the business world, Kristen now continues to serve women in the legal world with their Florida estate and special needs planning, small probate and minor's guardianship needs.


 


Kristen understands that many women feel intimidated dealing with attorneys. Kristen breaks down those barriers with her warm personable approach.

  • Sabrina Winters

    I have practiced in the area of estate planning for over 12 years and know how difficult it is for a client to discuss matters of death and illness. Kristen has a personal approach with her clients that comes from her heart; a trait clients need and want in an estate planning attorney. She is detail oriented and creative in her planning strategies. If you are considering using her as your attorney to assist you with any of your estate planning needs in Florida, I encourage you to look no more!
