ABOUT MARYLIN

MARYLIN'S STORY 

Marylin Pierre is a well-known community organizer, public servant, and legal expert in Montgomery County, Maryland. In 1975, her family immigrated to the United States from Haiti in search of a better life. At an early age, Marylin was inspired to practice law after listening to the passionate arguments of the first African American Supreme Court Justice, Thurgood Marshall. Since then, Marylin has worked hard to ensure equitable access to legal representation and ensure everyone is treated with dignity and respect in the eyes of the law.   

A THRIVING CAREER

Marylin Pierre is a graduate of Howard University School of Law and John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Marylin has been practicing law for over 28 years. Marylin's area of practice includes family law, criminal law, juvenile law, and probate law. Marylin has represented many clients whose cases have established precedents in the State of Maryland.

 

Marylin is a retired First Lieutenant in the United States Army Reserve Military Police Corps, a former Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), and a former legal redress attorney for the NAACP Montgomery County Branch. Marylin is a former chair of the Montgomery County Criminal Justice Coordinating Commission, the legal advisor of the Business and Professional Women of Maryland, and a board member of the Maryland State Board of Occupational Therapy.

 

Marylin was honored with the Leadership In Law award in 2019. She is a three-time recipient of the Daily Record's Maryland's Top 100 Women and she was admitted to its Circle of Excellence in 2014.

 

Marylin is a past president of the J. Franklyn Bourne Bar Association, Maryland's largest and most active specialty bar association. She is recognized as a Bar Leader by the Montgomery County Bar Foundation and the recipient of the Montgomery County Bar Association's Pro Bono Award.

Franklyn Bourne Bar Association Community Service Award, the Enolia Pettigen McMillan "Women in NAACP" Award, the Maryland Business and Professional Women of Maryland Montgomery County Chapter Women of Achievement Award, and numerous other recognitions and citations.

READY TO SERVE

The Montgomery County Circuit Court hears many different cases including  family, Juvenile, civil, and criminal cases. When, with your support, I become Judge of the Montgomery County Circuit Court, I could be called to hear cases in any one of those cases. 

When it’s your child or grandchild’s well-being on the line or a dispute that could affect the future of your small business, do you want a judge who only has ever worked on criminal law cases?  Throughout my 28-year career I have practiced family, criminal, juvenile, and business law. My diverse experience allows me to inspire confidence and faith in those who appear in front of me, regardless in what area I’m called to serve.

Additionally, as a mother, veteran, and immigrant who has worked with countless community organizations,  I possess the life experience required to serve as a judge in one of America’s most diverse counties.
