Mary Elizabeth Tenn joined Tenn And Tenn, P.A. in 2001 and practices in New Hampshire with expertise in personal injury, domestic relations, and complex commercial litigation. She represents individual clients as well as corporations and has secured multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for her personal injury clients. Mary is admitted to practice in all state and federal courts in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, as well as in the United States Supreme Court.

Prior to joining Tenn And Tenn, P.A., Mary worked as a litigation attorney at Hale and Dorr LLP in Boston, now WilmerHale. She also served as Special Assistant District Attorney for Middlesex County, where she prosecuted cases on behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Mary is a frequent trial advisor for the Trial Advocacy Workshop at Harvard Law School and a judge for the Harvard Law School First-year Moot Court Program.

Mary holds a J.D. degree, cum laude, from Harvard Law School and a B.A., summa cum laude, from Boston College, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and awarded membership in the National Jesuit Honor Society, The Order of the Cross and Crown. She serves on the board of the New Hampshire Bar Foundation, is the State Chair for New Hampshire for the Fellows of the American Bar Foundation, and is a past president of the New Hampshire Bar Association and the Manchester Bar Association.
