LOS ANGELES – December 18, 2023 – White collar criminal defense law firm Kaplan Marino announced today that Founding Partner Nina Marino has been recognized as a 2023 “Top White Collar Lawyer” in a special feature by the Daily Journal.
“This recognition speaks to Nina’s commitment to her clients and the legal profession at large,” says Founding Partner Richard Kaplan. “It’s an honor to have her represent our firm alongside such accomplished attorneys.”
Marino’s white-collar defense 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.
In the feature, Marino identifies government overreach as a significant trend in white-collar defense. She states, “practitioners in the field of white-collar criminal defense will have to continue to push back on government theories of prosecution that are not supported by the law, and criminal charges or sentencing enhancements that are not supported by the facts."
Recently, Marino has been recognized as a “Leader of Influence” and a “Woman of Influence” by the Los Angeles Business Journal, a “Legal Visionary” by the Los Angeles Times, she has also been named a “Best Lawyer in America” since 2019, and is ranked by Chambers and Partners.
