Marijean is a founding partner of Moschetto & Koplin, Inc. Marijean was born and educated in Seattle, obtained her J.D. from McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento in 1978 and returned to Seattle to practice with her father. After her father’s passing, Joe Koplin and Marijean formed their firm in 1989 and have been having fun practicing law together ever since. Marijean’s long-term practice focuses primarily on Family Law.
A peripatetic “Bar Fly”, Marijean began her bar association service as a member of the East King County Bar Association Board of Trustees in the early 1990’s and served as President of the Eastside Legal Assistance Program in 1994-95. Her service has included the WSBA Board of Governors (1996-1999), chair of the WSBA Professionalism Committee in 2001-2002, chair of the WSBA Family Law Section for 2004-2005, and vice-chair of the WSBA Washington Leadership Institute (WLI) in 2008.

She has regularly been named a Super Lawyer since 2002, and in 2006 was voted one of Washington Law & Politics Top 25 Family Law Super Lawyers.
Of equal importance, Marijean’s world class baking skill is a welcome addition to her legal expertise and make her a sought-after committee member for groups who recognize that lawyers cannot survive on jurisprudence alone.
