Marlie H. Willer is an experienced trial lawyer that has dedicated her practice to 100% litigation. Marlie focuses her practice on medical malpractice, with a particular emphasis in obstetric negligence. She has successfully litigated hundreds of brachial plexus cases across the country. Throughout her career, she has advocated for children and families in states including Massachusetts, Maine, Wisconsin, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, Tennessee, Washington, and Oklahoma.
Marlie believes that every family and child that has been injured due to no fault of their own deserves to have a voice. Families and children that have suffered birth trauma are often left in the dark and sent home without any explanation other than – well these things happen. As a mother herself, Marlie has a great appreciation for the confusion and concern that the parents of children injured at birth face. As a practitioner, she aims to comfort and accompany families during this difficult time—while advocating aggressively in court on behalf of injured children and their families.
Marlie earned her undergraduate degree from Boston University in philosophy and cultural gender studies. Marlie went on to receive her law degree from New England Law Boston, where she served as an Ambassador for the Student Bar Association and was inducted into the Phi Alpha Delta Law Fraternity.
Before opening her own practice, Marlie worked at Kenneth M. Levine & Associates, a nationally recognized birth injury firm, for a decade honing her skills in the courtroom and learning the medicine of obstetrical birth injuries.
Marlie has been a guest speaker at the United Brachial Plexus Camp and the New England Brachial Plexus Group Family Day. Marlie was a co-speaker with Kenneth M. Levine & Associates at the AAJ Brachial Plexus Seminar where she discussed attacking ACOG’s Neonatal Brachial Plexus Palsy pathophysiology and causation theory.
Marlie’s pro bono work includes representing clients in family law and landlord-tenant cases for the Volunteer Lawyers Project, along with representing minor clients in immigration status actions through Kids in Need of Defense (KIND).
When not in the office, you can find Marlie enjoying the outdoors with her family hiking and skiing.
