Marian M. Yim, a native of Oregon, earned her undergraduate degree at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York. She subsequently received her Juris Doctorate from Cornell Law School after which she relocated to Phoenix, Arizona in 1982.

Marian began her career as an Assistant Attorney General acting as a civil litigator, appellate counsel, and as a prosecutor. She developed expertise in federally funded programs including child support enforcement, unemployment benefits and food stamps. Marian handled cases featured in the national media that were ultimately decided by the United States Supreme Court. As a senior attorney, she supervised criminal investigations, trained new attorneys and supervised appeals.

Marian was an Arizona Supreme Court Staff Attorney for seven years. In this capacity, she advised the Supreme Court Justices in selecting significant cases for review. She provided in-depth analysis of administrative and regulatory cases such as land use, utilities and telecommunications. Marian also served as an Adjunct Professor of ethics and professional responsibility at the Arizona State University School of Law.

As Counsel to Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon, Marian managed public records, contracts and grants. She was policy advisor on environment and natural resources, international economic development and education. With the City Attorney, Marian developed commercial contracts for the Phoenix Convention Center and the Arizona State University Downtown Campus.

In 2006, Governor Janet Napolitano appointed Marian to the Arizona Board of Executive Clemency. She adjudicated parole and community release violations and advised the Governor on applications for clemency, pardons, and reprieves on capital cases.

Marian now focuses her practice on administrative and regulatory law and commercial transactions. She continues to be active on local civic boards and committees such as the Phoenix Industrial Development Authority (PIDA) that provides millions of dollars in financial assistance annually for affordable housing and community and economic development.

Marian’s extraordinary and diverse experience makes her an exceptional member of any legal team.
