Hi, I am Marisol. Welcome!
I strive to empower my clients to make informed and impactful decisions.
I will walk with you through the celebrations of life and death, taking care of the details so that you may cherish the memories.
I endeavor to deeply listen to your wishes, desires and fears, and provide you with caring and effective legal counsel during times of transition.
I first honed and developed these skills as a crisis counselor for White Bird Clinic and as a case manager for at-risk families in the foothills of Appalachia. In my work, I discovered many families were impacted by a host of legal issues. I developed a curriculum in collaboration with the local Legal Aid aimed at supporting and educating families about their rights and responsibilities. My experiences propelled me into law school and I devoted my life to empowering myself with knowledge of the law.
I've learned to form not-for-profit corporations, worked with a tax law firm's private foundations, assisted clients in forming their own foundations inside their estate plans, and eventually specialized as an estate planning attorney. I melded my counseling background with my legal expertise and affirmed my strengths as an empathic and active listener. In 2010, I launched my own legal practice utilizing my holistic approach to law to support and guide clients through times of transition.
A bit more about me.
Yoga is the way I find my grounded center in an often turbulent world. As a yoga instructor, I guide practitioners in unifying our breath with our mind and movements. When we cultivate a sense of calm and purpose, we are better able to show up as ourselves in the outside world.
As a volunteer of White Bird Clinic, I assist in the coordination of a multidisciplinary medical and mental health response team at community events. We endeavor to deliver patient-centered, safe, high quality health care with a harm-reduction philosophy.
As an actor in Playback Theater, I get to share intimately with someone's deepest moment of vulnerability and share my own. In this forum, we celebrate stories by bringing to life cherished memories through deep and creative witnessing.
