Katie Rose Marion joined the firm in 2019 as an associate attorney after graduating from the University of New Mexico School of Law. She is a civil litigator and has represented clients catastrophically injured by large corporations, including causes of action for premises liability, products liability, medical malpractice, in addition to other areas of practice. She is passionate about advocating on behalf of those who have been harmed, especially when that harm is caused by companies who continuously and deliberately choose to put profits over the safety of those individuals. Katie Rose is dedicated to going above and beyond for those she represents, whether it be by actively litigating on their behalf and representing clients in the courtroom, or in the day-to-day matters by keeping her clients fully informed about all aspects of their case because she understands that the injuries they have suffered have drastically altered their lives. The most important aspect of every case for Katie Rose is to protect her clients’ interests by helping them to hold accountable those whose conduct caused or contributed to their injuries.
While Katie Rose is a recent graduate from law school, some of her career highlights include winning three oppositions to motions for summary judgment, including opposition to a corporation’s motion for summary judgment, on issues of franchisor control over its franchisee and punitive damages, in an out of state case on behalf of a client severely injured on the premises of a convenience store. She has also successfully briefed and argued motions in the Second Judicial District Court as she worked pro bono as a special prosecutor, appointed to assist the State in eliminating the rape kit backlog in a program known as “Project Predator,” spearheaded by attorney Randi McGinn.
In law school, Katie Rose was a member of the National Mock Trial Team, served on the boards of the Student Bar Association and Student Animal Legal Defense Fund volunteered at the United States Attorney’s Office and Pegasus Legal Services, and also had the privilege of working for McGinn, Montoya, Love & Curry as a law clerk. She was immediately impressed by the unique nature of this firm and its dedication to its clients and to working on each individual case to bring about overarching changes to attempt to prevent the same harm occurring again in the future, in not only the local community but the world. This commitment to making the world a safer place is what drives Katie Rose and why she loves working for and alongside the firm’s incredible attorneys.
Out of the office, Katie Rose enjoys spending time with her dog, taking on house projects, and enjoying time in the beautiful outdoors of the Land of Enchantment by cycling, running, or walking in the Bosque trying not to get bitten by mosquitoes.
