Marisa Williams co-founded Williams & Rhodes in 1999 because she firmly believes that the United States government should be a model employer, citizen and business partner. In her prior role as agency counsel, Marisa witnessed the disparity in power and resources between the government and individual claimants. She is passionate about helping employees and others pursue their rightful claims against the federal government, and has dedicated her practice to changing that balance of power.
In addition to representing claimants against the federal government, Ms. Williams provides services to select federal agencies in the form of EEO investigations, management directed inquiries, litigation consulting, and discrimination training for managers and employees.
Marisa worked for the U.S. Department of Energy, Western Area Power Administration, from 1994-1999. She was a litigation associate at Cohen Brame & Smith from 1988-1994. Ms. Williams received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Denver College of Law in 1988, where she served on Law Review. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree from Bryn Mawr College in 1985.
