Jinnifer Jeresek Mariman


Jinnifer was born in Libby, Montana and attended Montana State University on a women’s basketball scholarship. After graduation, Jinnifer served as a legislative assistant for Senator Max Baucus in Washington, D.C. This experience inspired Jinnifer to attend law school, during which she served as the head law clerk for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Portland, Oregon, prosecuting federal misdemeanors. Upon graduation, Jinnifer began her practice in Bend, Oregon where she represented clients in business, estate, and tribal disputes. In December 2011, Jinnifer returned home to Montana and joined Moore, Cockrell, Goicoechea & Axelberg P.C, where she continues to help clients resolve civil disputes. Jinnifer and her husband, Gabe, enjoy living in Montana and being close to Jinnifer’s family and all the outdoor activities they enjoy.
