LOS ANGELES – December 8, 2022 – White collar criminal defense law firm Kaplan Marino announced today that its Founding Partner Nina Marino has been recognized as a 2022 “Top White Collar Lawyer” in a special feature by the Daily Journal for the third year consecutive year.
“This repeated recognition speaks to Nina’s unwavering commitment to her clients and the legal profession,” says Founding Partner Richard Kaplan.
In the feature, Marino is described as “a litigator at heart who loves the thrill of a trial.” But a trial is almost always a bad choice for the client, states the feature, so Marino endeavors “…to do more to get a resolution before ever crossing that threshold to trial.”
As a “foremother” of the Women’s White-Collar Defense Association, Marino is different from most white collar defense attorneys because she does not take on any civil cases. “I’ve never prosecuted anyone, and I’ve never worked for anyone,” she is quoted as saying in the profile. “I’m truly self-made in the space.”
Marino’s complex litigation and white collar crime practice is national in scope. She regularly negotiates with and litigates against the U.S. Department of Justice, local district attorneys, and other government agencies in her defense of people investigated or charged with matters involving healthcare fraud, international extradition, cybercrime, money laundering, customs violations, tax crimes, Ponzi schemes, public corruption, and regulatory issues involving cryptocurrency.
Recently, Marino was recognized as a “Top Women Attorney,” “Top 100 Lawyer,” and a “Los Angeles Woman of Influence” by the Los Angeles Business Journal. She was also named a “Best Lawyer in America” since 2019 and is rated by Chambers USA.
