We are pleased to announce the addition of Jinnifer Jeresek Mariman to MHSL.
Jinnifer was born and raised in Libby, Montana and attended Montana State University on a women’s basketball scholarship. After graduation, Jinnifer served as a legislative assistant for Senator Max Baucus in Washington, D.C. Being raised in Libby, Montana and seeing first-hand the impacts of asbestos on her hometown inspired Jinnifer to attend law school.
During law school she served as the head law clerk for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Portland, Oregon, prosecuting federal misdemeanors. Upon graduation, Jinnifer began her practice in Bend, Oregon where she represented clients in complex commercial, business, estate, and tribal disputes.
In December 2011, Jinnifer returned home to Montana and joined a firm where she continued to help clients resolve civil disputes involving property, professional negligence, estate, business, and local governments.
In April 2018, Jinnifer joined McGarvey, Heberling, Sullivan & Lacey where she gets to fulfill the very reason she became a lawyer, to help the folks in her hometown of Libby, Montana who have been sickened by asbestos exposures. Jinnifer and her husband, Gabe, enjoy showing their two daughters all that being raised in Northwest Montana has to offer.
