Clarissa Reiman has devoted her 18-year legal career to the defense of insurers, third-party administrators, and their insureds. She has significant experience in all areas of civil litigation, specifically in matters involving auto liability, product liability, insurance coverage, UM/UIM valuation, bad faith, premises liability, wrongful death and personal injury. She is also experienced in the areas of medical malpractice, appeals and motions, alternative dispute resolution, and complex commercial litigation matters.

An advocate for clients both inside and outside of the courtroom, Clarissa represents her clients passionately and confidently. Throughout her career, she has participated in alternative dispute resolution and litigation for hundreds of cases involving insurance defense and civil litigation.

Earlier in her career, Clarissa worked as a Deputy County Attorney with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. She gained significant trial experience prosecuting misdemeanor and felony cases, including cases involving assault, DUI, domestic violence, drugs, burglary, and conspiracy charges.

Before pursuing her law degree, Clarissa worked as an insurance adjuster for American International Group and Enterprise Rent-A-Car. It was her experience as an insurance adjuster that gave her the desire to pursue a career in law focusing in the area of insurance defense.

Clarissa is originally from Virginia, and has lived in Arizona since graduating from law school. Away from the office, she enjoys hiking, yoga, and spending time with family and friends.
