Probate Litigation/Administration

Dependency Litigation

Marissa started practicing law as a dependency attorney and she is always happy to revisit dependency court. Marissa represents parents, grandparents, and minors who need help navigating the complicated dependency system.

Personal Injury

One of Marissa’s first jobs while in law school was working at a large personal injury firm in Akron, Ohio. There, Marissa learned the ins and outs of representing clients injured in automobile accidents.  Today, Walter Legal takes a limited number of personal injury cases each year. Marissa limits the number of personal injury cases to make sure each personal injury client she takes on gets the best representation possible.
