Marielise uses her broad range of experience with complex business and commercial disputes along with her depth of skill as a litigator to successfully represent financial services clients in courtrooms across the country. She also uses that experience to counsel clients on regulatory compliance issues, risk management concerns, and enforcement actions.
Born in the Headless Horseman’s hometown of Sleepy Hollow, New York, Marielise hails from the East Coast. After stints as a burrito-roller at Chipotle, a computer salesperson at an Apple Store, and a beer vendor at minor league baseball games, Marielise became the first person in her family to go to law school. She then moved to Chicago (where she’s still looking for a decent bagel and a slice of “real” pizza), and now lives in the Wicker Park neighborhood with her wife and two cats, Dawson and Judy Pancake.
