Mariham was a pharmacist before becoming an attorney. She has experience both in the retail and pharmaceutical industries. This included working in the pharmacovigilance and regulatory fields for Pfizer, Novartis and Sandoz. Duties within her scope at Novartis and Sandoz included conducting medical assessments for adverse events and liaising with health care providers to ensure case completeness prior to submission to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). At Pfizer, she liaised with regulatory bodies, clinical trial sites and health care professionals for adverse event monitoring. She also interned with the Children’s Hospital of Colorado where she dealt with legal issues involving Medicare and Medicaid regulations, anti-kickback statutes, HIPAA and practitioner and hospital licensing regulations. Her experiences in health care and in the pharmaceutical field help her smoothly navigate the legal problems her clients in these industries face.
After law school, Mariham honed her research and analysis skills during two judicial clerkships. As an appellate clerk for the Honorable Diana Terry at the Colorado Court of Appeals, Mariham drafted opinions for twenty-two appellate cases dealing with multiple areas of law, including evidentiary issues, torts and contract law. She then served as an appellate clerk for the Honorable William Hood at the Colorado Supreme Court where she drafted legal opinions as well as memorandums to the justices recommending the grant or denial of certiorari.
Mariham enjoys using her previous experiences in health care and pharmaceuticals to sharpen her legal practice, ultimately to the benefit of her clients.
