Marissa A. Oxman, Esq.Partner
Marissa Oxman is Core Law Group, LLP's newest partner. She came to Core Law Group from one of California's largest Plaintiff's class action firms. In addition to her family law and class action experience, she has experience with employment law, the Public Defender, and as extern for a federal district court judge.
Marissa’s favorite aspect of her practice is helping good people on their worst days. She models her practice after U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt’s foreign policy – “speak softly and carry a big stick.” Marissa is always willing to negotiate peacefully. But she never lets the other side forget she is a talented trial advocate who is not afraid of the courtroom. Her philosophy allows her clients to move on with their lives as quickly as possible, without being taken advantage of.
Marissa is a Southern California native. She grew up in Fullerton, California and attended Rosary High School. She was a double anteater - with undergraduate and law school degrees from UC Irvine. As an undergraduate, she received degrees in Political Science and Dance, graduated magna cum laude, received the Order of Merit for founding the university's nationally ranked mock trial team, and won more attorney awards than any female undergraduate mock trial competitor in the United States. She was a member of the second graduating class at UC Irvine's School of Law. She was a Research Editor on the UC Irvine Law Review, recipient of Pro Bono High Honors upon graduation, and the recipient of multiple trial advocacy honors.
Marissa teaches trial advocacy as a private consultant - courtroom decorum, examination and statement technique, rules of evidence, and public speaking skills. She is a classically trained ballerina and an accordion world champion. She hates wearing shoes, loves sitting on the floor, and will eat any spicy food placed in front of her.
