Her combined knowledge and experience in law and nursing makes her ideally suited to represent, advise and educate nurses and health care professionals with legal issues relating to nursing, healthcare law and professional licensing.

Since 1983 Marian has been a registered nurse working at several Metro Detroit Hospitals. She is an experienced ICU and cardiovascular nurse as well as an educator and preceptor. Marian has taught classes in Medical-Legal Ethics in Healthcare at local colleges and has been a speaker at women's seminars on the topics of family law and estate planning. In 1988 she earned her Juris Doctor and worked at several firms practicing medical malpractice before starting her own firm in 1992 with her husband. During such time, Marian worked as a legal nurse consultant and focused her practice on family law, estate planning and probate.
