Marissa L. Simmons is the owner and managing attorney of MLS Law, A Professional Corporation.

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. 

Ms. Simmons 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 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 and Black Women Lawyers, as the chair of the Young Adult Committee, Outreach and Community Action Committee, and Judicial Endorsements 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.
