I have been licensed to practice law for almost thirty years. A University of Michigan Law School graduate, I represent victims and survivors of sex abuse in religious, educational, governmental, and military institutions; campus sexual assault and rape, online sexual exploitation; child pornography; sextortion and revenge porn.

My case on compensation for victims of child pornography in federal criminal restitution proceedings was decided by the United States Supreme Court in 2014. That case, United States v. Paroline, led to the Amy, Vicky, and Andy Child Pornography Victim Assistance Act of 2018 which passed the House and Senate by unanimous consent and was signed into law on December 7, 2018.

I founded the nationally recognized Children’s Law Center in Washington, DC, and am an experienced trial attorney and frequent commentator, lecturer, and author on legal issues affecting children and victims of sex abuse and exploitation. I founded the Marsh Law Firm in New York which is recognized worldwide for its work helping sexually abused victims and survivors obtain justice and rebuild their lives with dignity and respect.

Great attorney
I am eternally grateful to Katie Shipp, Jennifer Freeman and James Marsh of the Marsh Law Firm. Facing pregnancy discrimination during my school residency was the toughest experience in my life. One thing I learned is that If you are experiencing any type of discrimination and retaliation, things don’t get better, they only get worse. Katie, Jennifer and James provided me with great legal advice and with their expertise, I was able to fight back and ultimately complete my residency. Today, 2 years later, I still have nightmares and anxiety over my experience, but I have a good job and am able to provide for my family. I think about Katie, Jennifer and James every single day when I look at my beautiful child and I hope that anyone in my situation is lucky enough to have a dream team like Katie, Jennifer and James by their side. They are my heroes and true victim advocates.
