Marrielle’s litigation practice encompasses an array of professional liability matters, including representing professionals before the New Hampshire Office of Professional Licensure and Certification such as the Boards of Nursing and Medicine. She also guides New Hampshire hospitals through the guardianship process in order to help community members find their way to a safe and appropriate setting. In addition, Marrielle maintains a diverse Labor and Employment practice and counsels clients on workplace policies, handbooks, terminations, wage and hour issues, and navigating harassment and disability issues, among other things. Marrielle maintains strong relationships with the New England equestrian community and has helped professionals as they grow their clientele.
