Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Marie moved to Clearwater, Florida in 1985. Marie brings over 25 years of experience in the legal field to Absolute Law Group and is a Florida Bar Registered Paralegal.
Marie was taught at a very young age to help others and those less fortunate. Her mother instilled this in her every day and taught her that the greatest satisfaction one can ever receive in life is knowing they were there to help someone else in their time of need. Her career journey had her follow this advice from her mother as she has worked in several fields helping others, as a 9-1-1 Operator/Police/Fire/EMS Dispatcher to a Law Enforcement Officer, Nurse, and a Paralegal.
Marie knows first-hand what it is like for our clients going through hard times as she cared for both of her parents during their end-of-life journeys. It is from this experience that she can relate to what our clients are dealing with and shows her clients the caring, compassion and understanding they need during this difficult time in their lives.
During her spare time, you will find Marie out kayaking, hiking, or just relaxing on her hammock on the beach at Honeymoon Island State Park.
