About me

Marsha has experienced life from Alaska to Massachusetts and brings a wide variety of skills and cultural understanding to bear in her work. As a former social worker she’s exceptionally skilled in dealing with people in crisis, knows how to defuse situations, is an excellent negotiator, and has worked with individuals from a wide variety of cultures and walks of life.

As an attorney she has a deep interest in the area of employment law and works closely with both the the Mazer Law Group, and the Law Office of Goldstein and Clegg (both of Lynnfield). She meets employment clients at this location several days a week a well as at her office in Andover. Marsha believes that involving the skills of multiple lawyers helps meet the needs of her clients as if they were at a mid-sized firm, and believes this method provides a rounded approach to the employment law needs of individuals seeking assistance, especially as there is no additional cost to them. She is a tenacious advocate. 

Marsha represents individuals in internal employment grievances, unemployment appeals hearings, representations at Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, the US Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, depositions, and in aspects of employment related litigation. Marsha has a background in union-side Labor Law and is highly skilled in contract analysis. In her prior career she participated in countless administrative hearings regarding employment issues. 

As a writer, she’s co-authored the Essay Success Express workbook on how to pass the Massachusetts Portion of the Bar; a part of the prestigious Emanuel Bar Review line. In fact, she also tutors individuals studying for the Massachusetts bar. Marsha authored memorandums distributed to judges statewide on post-divorce insurance, and on adoption by same sex couples during her judicial internships for the Chief Justice of Probate and Family Court; and she has an article in The Reformer - the Magazine of the MSL Community, Winter 2006. 

Marsha is halfway through a program to become facile with American Sign Language (ASL) at Deaf-Inc. in Allston and hosts a weekly meet-up group for individuals interested in expanding their ASL skills. 

Marsha provides pro-bono services through Volunteer Lawyer's Project and Senior Volunteers for Justice in the areas of employment law and bankruptcy. She provides pro-bono services to Jeanne Geiger Center clients in the area of domestic law.
