How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I chose my current areas of practice based on my experience and enjoyment of the subject matter.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

An educated client enables better interactions, saves money, and always makes better decisions. I believe that knowledge and information are power.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I'm always willing to review and comment on client's documents, but I have certain rules about ignored advice and limitations on liability.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I am willing to coach a client in self-representation as long as I have confidence in their ability to do so in specific situations, and they are willing to follow my advice.

Marisa Corvisiero

I have held positions in several law firms and companies since 1995 in different capacities. In such positions, I have attained the knowledge and experience necessary to properly and dynamically represent my clients. These stellar firms and companies include Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker, LLP, a top 15 global law firm; Windels, Marx, Lane & Mittendorf, LLP, a white shoe boutique; and Avaya, Inc., a fortune 500 telecommunications company among several distinguished others.

I have been fortunate enough to find brilliant mentors who not only knew the ins and outs of the law, but were also good teachers and humanitarians. I have vast experience from a top global to small firms, and I value them all equally. I believe that knowledge and apathy work hand in hand. Book smarts and common sense alone don't make one a good lawyer, it's the attorney understanding and caring for the client's needs that complete the package.

My strengths are in my knowledge, charisma and flexibility. I am a good listener and a great problem solver. Those who follow my advice, seldom regret doing so.

Personal interests:

Avid reader, novelist, freelance writer, scuba diver, yoga, kickboxing, music, travel, languages, theoretical astrophysics, movies, family and friends.
