Marianne Rousseau, Esq., CFM - President
Marianne is the owner of Rousseau Law and Mediation, PLLC, a law Firm in Concord, New Hampshire. Marianne is a certified family mediator, a collaborative law practitioner and a Family Law Attorney who practices statewide in New Hampshire. In addition to Family Law, Marianne’s practice includes litigation of personal injury, workmen’s compensation, and probate matters. Marianne finds family law work deeply rewarding, noting that the mediation and collaborative process frequently keeps the parties and families in general out of litigation in the courts. She believes that mediation allows the parties to settle when they otherwise may be unable to communicate and permits them to be heard in a way often precluded by court litigation. In addition to her law degree from New England School of Law in Boston, Marianne has a Master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University Peabody Conservatory in classical guitar. Marianne is admitted to the United States Supreme Court and is also admitted to practice in Vermont. She is a member of the Vermont and the New Hampshire Bar Associations, the Collaborative Law Association of New Hampshire, NHCRA and the D.O.V.E. Attorney Network. She has served as a member of the Education Committee for NHCRA as well as Clerk of the NHBA Family Law Section.
