Madison Family Law Attorney
Marsha joined Hawks Quindel in 2015 in an “of counsel” capacity after a long career as a family lawyer and clinical professor at the University of Wisconsin Law School, where Marsha currently supervises students in a family law clinic. Marsha works closely with other attorneys to expand Hawks Quindel’s family law practice, bringing to the firm her many years of experience in all aspects of family law. She co-counsels cases with other family lawyers and provides assistance in all aspects of family law representation.
Despite her busy career as a clinical professor, member of Wisconsin’s Access to Justice Commission, and position with Hawks Quindel, Marsha still finds time to run, bike and cook – which is her favorite form of procrastination.
Marsha has been teaching law students since she joined the Law School faculty in 2002 and she currently supervises students in the Family Court Clinic. She also teaches Professional Responsibilities at the Law School and served for three terms on the District 9 Committee of the Wisconsin Office of Lawyer Regulation. Marsha is a member of the statewide Access to Justice Commission and serves on its executive board. She has been active in the State Bar of Wisconsin as a member of the Legal Assistance Committee and Board of Governors, including its Executive Committee, as well as with the Dane County Bar Association, where she has chaired the Delivery of Legal Services Committee and served as Dane County Bar President. She served as a board member of both the Domestic Abuse Intervention Service and UNIDOS Against Domestic Violence and currently serves on the board of the Violence Against Women Advisory Committee. She has spoken at State Bar CLE seminars related to ethics and family law and trained attorneys for Legal Action’s Volunteer Lawyer’s Project.
Marsha helped create the U.W. Law School’s Pro Bono Project and is a member of its steering committee. She is co-author of law review and State Bar articles on a variety of topics related to family law and access to justice.
