It is true that Mariah Dylla Gardiner has a lot of education to draw upon, but that isn’t the primary reason she is such a great lawyer. She seems to be a natural, given that her first venture into the legal field happened when she was still in high school. That was when she published an article for the prestigious Concord Review, entitled “Criminal Justice.” She then earned an undergraduate degree in French from Portland State University, cum laude and followed that up by earning a Juris Doctor from the S.J. Quinney College of Law from the University of Utah.
While Mariah Dylla Gardiner was in law school, she received the Frankel Public Interest Fellowship, which is a great honor. In her law career now, Mariah is a member of both the Utah and Colorado Bars, as well as the El Paso and Douglas County (Colorado) Bar Associations and the Colorado Women’s Bar Association. She has a lot of great experience. At one point, she clerked for an administrative law judge in the U.S. Department of the Interior and she has worked alongside both appellate and felony attorneys on difficult constitutional defense issues. She has handled cases in many courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court.
