Marie Mallot


Marie Mallot was born in 1921. She worked as a legal secretary at Kurzman, Karelsen & Frank in the early 1940’s. Noticing that she was extremely bright, several attorneys at the firm encouraged her to attend law school at night, which she did. She was the only woman in her class when she graduated from Fordham Law School in 1946, and she was admitted to the bar in 1947. In addition to serving as a NYWBA President, Officer, Director and Committee Chair, she was active with New York County Lawyers’ Association, chairing several committees over the years. Ms. Mallot spent her entire legal career practicing estates law at Kurzman, Karelsen & Frank. She retired in 1976, but she continued doing work for the firm into her retirement.
