Pam first entered private practice with retired Representative Betty Nuovo (D-Middlebury) in 1983, forming the firm of Nuovo and Marsh in Middlebury. She came to private practice after acquainting herself with litigation and the Vermont court system as the judicial law clerk for the southern counties of Windham, Windsor, Bennington and Rutland. Pam then spent three years with the Developmental Disabilities Law Project of Vermont Legal Aid, primarily at the Brandon Training School. Since 1992, she has been the Juvenile Public Defender, representing hundreds of children and parents in Addison County. Attorney Marsh works primarily in the areas of criminal, juvenile, family, personal injury and civil litigation, estate planning, probate, and administrative appeals, including, but not limited to special education and Human Service Board appeals.
A graduate of Middlebury College and Harvard Law School, Pam also earned a certificate from the Pushkin Institute in Moscow, in the former Soviet Union. Pam currently serves as Justice of the Peace and Moderator for the Town of New Haven and Union High School District #28 (Mt. Abraham Union High School). Pam is a licensed foster parent for the State of Vermont. Currently Pam is chair of the Juvenile Law Committee of the Vermont Bar Association, a member of the Justice for Children Task Force, and an active member of the International Rule of Law Consortium. She is also on the Board of ACLU-VT and has served on the boards of a number of other organizations over the years.
In August 2012, Attorney Marsh was certified by the National Association of Counsel for Children as a Child Welfare Law Specialist. Awards include the 2005 “Women Who Make a Difference Award” from WomenSafe and the 2004 Vermont Bar Association President’s Award.
For fun, Pam enjoys swimming, bicycling, kayaking, playing the flute, quilting, reading and adopting and fostering English Setters for Above & Beyond English Setter Rescue.
