Marrisa Rose is a land use and zoning attorney who helps clients with planning, zoning, entitlements, permitting, and regulatory matters in Montgomery County and other Maryland jurisdictions.
Marrisa's personal philosophy is to "always work like you have something to prove." She is a dynamic and determined advocate for her clients -- detail-oriented and always focused on achieving their desired outcome.
Marrisa earned her law degree from The George Washington University School of Law, and a bachelor's degree in Political Science and Public Policy from the University of North Carolina. In her spare time, Marrisa has dedicated herself to helping women of color in their law school admissions process, including providing advice about school selection, studying for the LSAT, and providing general mentoring throughout their first year. Her goal is to increase the number of women of color in legal spaces.
Growing up in a military household, Marrisa has lived around the world, from the panhandle of Florida to Okinawa, Japan (though Stafford, Virginia will always be home). She loves to travel and her last big trip was to Cuba, where she rode horseback through cigar farms, explored small fishing villages, and visited the popular “Fabrica Del Arte” art gallery and performance space. Marrisa is an avid fan of the North Carolina Tar Heels basketball team and an aspiring yoga teacher.
