Marissa Sherman, a Boston area native, received a B.A. in Communications from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2006. After spending a few years in California, she attended Northeastern University School of Law.

While in law school Marissa interned with United States Magistrate Judge Kenneth Neiman in Springfield, Massachusetts and at Collora, LLP, a boutique litigation firm in Boston. However, it was her two internships with public defender offices in San Diego and Boston that ignited her passion for indigent defense. Marissa graduated from Northeastern in May of 2011 ready to begin her career as a public defender.

Marissa is excited and proud to be in Brooklyn and a part of Brooklyn Defender Services but she retains her strong allegiance to all Boston sports.
