Mary Ann Demos
Supervising Editor and Paralegal
Van Dermyden Makus Law Corporation
Mary Ann Demos is a Senior Case Editor and Paralegal with Van Dermyden Makus Law Corporation (formerly Van Dermyden Maddux). Mary Ann joined the Firm in early 2014. Mary Ann has always had a passion for writing, but began her life’s work by first pursuing her other love: science. In 1985 she received a B.S. in Clinical Science with a Minor in Chemistry from San Francisco State University. After completing a year-long internship at Children’s Hospital, San Francisco, Mary Ann worked 10 years in a private laboratory, three of which were spent as the Laboratory Supervisor. Next, she stayed home to raise her children. During this time, she started a freelance proofreading/copy editing service called Akribis Proofreading. Through this business, she began working with attorneys conducting workplace investigations, and she met Deborah Maddux and Sue Ann. Mary Ann finds workplace investigations to be an enlightening, though often sad, look into the ramifications of being human and the struggles we face. She uses her attention to detail and love of the written word to put the final touches on investigative reports, correspondence, employee handbooks, surveys, and anything else that lands on her desk. Mary Ann is also a California Notary Public.
