Betty D. Marion 

Betty Marion is a partner in the Ocala office. She has been practicing law in Marion County since 1987. Betty started her legal career as a secretary to her father, a general practitioner in Melbourne, Florida. She continued to work as a legal secretary in various cities in Florida and briefly in New York City, before returning, first to the University of Central Florida to obtain her A.A. and B.A. degrees, and then to Law School at the University of Florida. From 1985 through 2007, Betty worked her way from law clerk to managing partner, and in February of 2008, she opened The Marion Law Firm, LLC, in Ocala, Florida. She managed it until joining Kubicki Draper in 2011.
