Proven Success

August 2018 - Reduced tenant client's judgment court by $20,000 through successfully proving habitability violations and an abatement agreement

December 2018 - $40,000 settlement for an African-American employee who contended that his employer discriminated against and wrongfully terminated him due to his race.

Unique Perspective​

Not only have we worked with both landlords and tenants, but we also have experience mediating hundreds of court-connected evictions between landlords and tenants. We know what it takes to resolve a dispute.

Marissa L. Simmons is the owner and managing attorney of the Law Office of Marissa L. Simmons.

Ms. Simmons began her practice immediately after passing the California Bar in June 2016. Prior to opening her firm, Ms. Simmons has clerked for various solo practitioners and small firms, engaging in various practice areas from family, entertainment, employment, and personal injury. 

After working as a mediator in both Georgia and California courts, aiding hundreds of landlords and tenants in negotiating disputes, Ms. Simmons expanded her practice to include assisting both landlords and tenants with the eviction process. Due to her passion for justice and addressing the gentrification and homelessness epidemics in the City of Los Angeles, Ms. Simmons seeks to ensure that the eviction process is fair and just for both landlords and tenants, alike.

Ms. Simmons also believes that every employee should have the ability to provide for themselves and their families, without fear of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation. As a result, Ms. Simmons expanded her practice to include employment law related cases, where she fights for employees who have experienced discrimination, retaliation, and harassment, have not received proper wages and rest breaks, or who have endured illegal labor practices by their employer.

Ms. Simmons is a graduate of Georgia State University College of Law, where she also worked as a graduate research assistant, planning educational events for non-profit members of the Atlanta Compliance and Ethics Resource Center.

Ms. Simmons believes in serving her community and seeks out every opportunity to do so. She has served on the board for the Langston Bar Association for the past two years, both as the chair of the Young Adult Committee and Outreach and Community Action Committee. Believing that it's hard for one to believe they can become something that they've never seen, Ms. Simmons also regularly speaks at elementary, middle, and high schools, believing in the importance of giving minority children the ability to see that anything is possible.
