Peace of Mind Mariah Dylla Gardiner is Passionate About Her Work

August 16, 2018
Long before she became a lawyer, Mariah Dylla Gardiner serves as curator of an oral history museum exhibit telling the story of underground uranium miners in northwest New Mexico. She interviewed the miners and used their words to tell the full story in the context of the Cold War. Back then, the government and contractors actively concealed hazards and delayed the implementation of safety regulations until the U.S. nuclear arsenal was completed.

Mariah Dylla Gardiner has enjoyed a prolific career as a family law attorney, but there is a lot more to her than achieving the best results for her clients. She has always been something of a legal scholar. In fact, while Mariah was still in high school, she published an article, entitled "Criminal Justice," in the prestigious Concord Review, which marked her as a prodigy of sorts. Following high school, Mariah earned an undergraduate degree in French, cum laude, from Portland State University. She then earned her Juris Doctor (law degree) from the University of Utah, but that is still not everything.

Mariah Dylla Gardiner is also an activist, who has advocated for women’s rights all over the developing world for years. She also has rapporteur status to the United Nations. Mariah also has conducted research and written extensively on issues regarding post-colonial feminism in West Africa. Put simply, besides her impressive career in family law, where she advocates for clients and their families in the most difficult circumstances possible, Mariah Dylla Gardiner has accumulated plenty of varied experience in many other areas. Most importantly, she shows a great deal of compassion for people in many walks of life.
