After sitting for the New York and New Jersey Bar Examinations in 1994, Ms. Marcell then relocated to Florida to be with family and sat for the Florida Bar Examination in February of 1995, and was admitted to Florida in June of 1995. While studying for the Florida Bar, Ms. Marcell worked as a research attorney for a personal injury firm.

Since being admitted to the Florida Bar, Ms. Marcell practiced law in Clearwater, Florida at a personal injury firm where she represented the interests of plaintiffs. In addition to personal injury claims, she represented the interests of injured workers and disabled claimaints.

Ms. Marcell then relocated to Orlando in 1996 and worked once again in a plaintiffs' firm in downtown Orlando practicing personal injury law and Social Security disability law.
