Marisse Merwin is a skilled workers compensation attorney with substantial experience advocating for the rights of injured Connecticut workers. Raised by an ICU nurse with 50 years of experience rehabilitating the critically injured, Marisse is regarded as a uniquely conscientious workplace injury lawyer. In addition to her borderline-biological fluency in medical terminology, Marisse’s friends and family joke that she is genetically predisposed to compassion. In combination with her relentlessness and tenacity, these traits make Marisse a potent advocate for employees seeking to secure work accident compensation.
Prior to her current role representing injured workers with Goff Law Group, Marisse sat on the other side of the table defending against (purportedly) illegitimate workers compensation claims. In so-doing, Marisse gained an intimate familiarity with the decision-drivers at play for employers when considering work injury settlement. Today, Marisse models her proprietary approach to resolving work-related injury disputes and securing rightful disability benefits around these same criteria she learned while on the defense side.
During law school, Marisse interned extensively at a variety of personal injury law firms in Connecticut and Massachusetts. In her capacity as an intern, Marisse learned the intricacies of representing injury victims before the Connecticut State Court, the Massachusetts State Court, the Rhode Island State Court, and the Mohegan Sun Tribal Court. Marisse additionally served as the President of her law school’s Health Law Association, and was the recipient of the prestigious CALI Award in Higher Education Law and Legal Aspects of Entrepreneurship.
Marisse lives in Wethersfield, Connecticut with her husband (also an attorney), their two dogs, and their two cats. The couple enjoys negotiating pet-related chores while at home together: Marisse typically comes out on top. As one of four attorneys at her Thanksgiving dinner table, Marisse finds even the most intense arguments with other lawyers wholly unintimidating.
