Tina is an Associate at Marshall Diel & Myers Limited. She was raised in Bermuda and returned home in 2017 after living in the United States. She has over four years post-qualification experience as an attorney in the United States and was admitted to the Bermuda Bar in 2017.

Expertise

Tina’s practice is primarily in commercial and civil litigation, although she also has substantial experience in employment law, family/matrimonial law, contractual disputes and human rights.

She is passionate about human and civil rights matters and in particular is interested and involved in the development of mental health law and treatment services in Bermuda. She is one of only a handful of attorneys to recently practice as defence counsel in the Mental Health Treatment Court.

Tina’s diverse experience and history in civil rights work has given her extensive experience advocating for her clients both in and outside of the courtroom. She takes the time to talk to her clients and learn about each case in order to provide detailed advice and pragmatic representation.

Before returning to Bermuda and while living in Texas, she practiced as an attorney in the areas of civil rights and mental health law. She represented youth with disabilities in foster care proceedings state-wide and represented children with disabilities in administrative hearings to advocate for medically necessary equipment. She also represented individuals with mental illness and/or intellectual disabilities who were institutionalised in hospitals, jails and long-term residence facilities in civil rights proceedings, namely claims of abuse, neglect and exploitation. Her work included representing clients in initial proceedings, appellate proceedings, and class action lawsuits.
