Meet Marjorie

In Her Own Words...

 "I became an attorney to give voice to the voiceless.  I saw too many little guys get kicked around by the big guys.  I wanted to even the playing field.  I have spent the last 18 years doing just that.  Every job, every client has given me the experience I need to make sure that the big guys don't have an unfair advantage."-- Marjorie A. Bristol   



What Her Clients Say...

  • "Marjorie Bristol's career has been to provide for our most vulnerable,  our children often and families while protecting our civil rights. I  reminded myself of this today and am giving her a call!"
