Teresa C. Marino graduated from The Catholic University of America, magna cum laude. She earned her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Baltimore School of Law, where she was the Recent Developments Editor of the University of Baltimore Law Forum and served as the Treasurer for the Women’s Bar Association. Teresa was admitted to practice in Pennsylvania in 2009 and in Maryland in 2010. She is an active member of the Pennsylvania, Lancaster, and Dauphin County Bar Associations, serving as the Vice Chairperson of Dauphin County’s Family Law Section.
She also is an active member of the Collaborative Professionals of Central Pennsylvania and as associate member of the Hon. William W. Lipsitt American Inn of Court. Outside of the office, Teresa serves on the board of directors for the Dauphin County Court Appointed Special Advocates program and volunteers her time through the Junior League of Lancaster.
Prior to joining JSDC, Teresa served as a law clerk to the Honorable David R. Workman, Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas, where she worked on family law and juvenile delinquency cases. As a law clerk, Teresa had the unique experience of observing thousands of litigants and learning from their counsel the most effective ways to advocate for clients. During her clerkship, Teresa sought insight from the Court and received a “behind the scenes” view of family law matters.
Teresa’s practice at JSDC is focused exclusively on family law. She takes a client-centered approach to every case, working with each client to establish individual goals and to discuss long-term consequences. While passionately advocating for her clients in and out of the courtroom, Teresa is sensitive to the complex emotional and legal aspects of a family’s dissolution. She takes pride in serving her clients efficiently and strives for excellence.
