I am happy to say that Nina Marino reached a positive outcome for my case. She did exactly what she said she would. She had fair billings. She returned phone calls either immediately or in reasonable time. She kept a clear head and was able to figure out the correct way to solve the different issues that came up. And most importantly, she prevailed when other attorneys failed. I highly recommend her, as she is a problem solver and makes complicated matters seem easy.
I was indicted on an international drug conspiracy case with a 10 year mandatory minimum. My parents knew Nina for many years and hired her. To be honest I was skeptical at first. From what I understood she handled mainly white collar crimes. She quickly took away my worry and I felt confident she was the best person for the case. It amazed me how well she understood the details of my case. I was involved with very complicated transactions and she grasped it like a sponge. Nina is very smart, caring and detail oriented. There is nothing that gets by her and she knows every aspect of the system. Nina was by my side every step of the way and did things she didn't have to do. She went above and beyond what was necessary. My case dragged on for 4 years and never once did I feel neglected. If I called, emailed, etc she would handle my issue at that moment or get back to me ASAP. Going through an indictment looking at 10+ years can be very depressing. Nina was so uplifting and mentally encouraging, she really kept me going and positive. She became more like a friend or family to me and I hope to keep in touch with her the rest of my life. One of the many things that blew me away was her Sentencing Memo. It was so thought out and read like a good book. The details of my life, personal transformation and letters of support were put together brilliantly. I read some of my codefendants Sentencing Memos written by top notch attorneys and compared to Nina's they were embarrassing. The outcome of my case was 5 years probation!! I believe I was the only person on an indictment with 50+ people not to be sentenced to prison. There is no doubt in my mind had Nina not been my attorney I would be sitting in prison at this very moment with many years to go. Everything throughout the last 4 years couldn't have gone any better. The only drawback to my case ending is not talking to Nina as often. Do yourself a favor, if your looking for a criminal defense lawyer, look no further, call Nina and relax.
Nina was an absolute God send for me when I needed an attorney. She was thorough, incredibly competent, detailed and insightful. When I first met with her in her office in Beverly Hills she immediately made me feel relaxed and comfortable because I was nervous about the fact that I needed a criminal defense attorney. Her personal demeanor and professionalism relieved a ton of my stress and I knew I could trust her. She was able to help me walk through a complicated situation regarding white collar crime and was present with me when I had to deal with the FBI. Her confidence and intimate knowledge of my case gave me a sense of calm while going through the storm.
Nina was able to help me tell the truth to the FBI in a way that I would never have been able to communicate it. She helped organize my thoughts and create a timeline that was integral in absolving me of any wrong doing. I never thought that I would have to be in a room with and FBI agent talking about criminal activity. It's hard to put into words the confidence I had knowing that Nina was my attorney. I really can't recommend her highly enough.
Nina was incredible. I was referred to her by a friend from Virginia and from the moment I walked in her office she gave me her full attention. Nina made me feel as though she was the only client she had. Nina first sought to thouroughly understand my situation, and after asking incredibly insightful questions, began to advise me on how to best proceed. I didn't do anything on my own in this case. She advised me every step of the way. There wasn't one moment of my case where I didn't feel as though Nina knew exactly what was going on. I have no doubt in my mind she gave me the appropriate advice all along as she protected me in a very difficult and troubling situation.
I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND NINA MARINO TO ANYONE WHO IS IN NEED OF A LAWYER. MY EXPERIENCE WITH NINA WAS ONE I WILL NEVER FORGET. I WAS FALSELY ACCUSED OF BRIBERY AND FRAUD WITH THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. NINA PUT LONG HARD HOURS INTO MY CASE AND FOUGHT UNTILL THE END TO PROVE MY INNOCENSE. SHE WORKED RESTLESSLY AND GOT MY CASE TO BE DROPPED OF ALL CHARGES.
MY NAME IS CLEAR TODAY THANKS TO NINA MARINO. HER DEDICATION AND PROFESSIONALISM HELPED ME TO HAVE FAITH IN MY CASE AND TO NOT GIVE UP.
NINA IS A GREAT FIGHTER!!! IN THE BEGINNING HER WORDS WERE "I WILL BE WITH YOU UNTIL THE END" AND SHE KEPT HER PROMISE. SHE IS A VERY HONEST LAWYER AND SHE ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT HER CLIENTS UNLIKE SOME OTHER LAYWERS. SHE IS A VERY REASONABLE PERSON WHEN IT COMES TO FINANCIAL SITUATIONS. SHE HAS A GREAT UNDERSTANDING AND TRIES TO DO HER BEST TO ACCOMADATE HER CLIENT'S SITUATION.
THE BEST PART OF NINA MARINO IS THE ATMOSPHERE SHE PROVIDES THAT ALLOWS THE CLIENT TO TRUST HER AND FEEL SAFE. IF ANYONE IS IN NEED OF A LAWYER, DON'T HESITATE. SHE WILL BE THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO YOU. SHE IS THE LIGHT IN THE TUNNEL WHEN YOUR WORLD IS TURNING DARK. SHE IS TRUELY AN ANGEL.
THANK YOU, NINA, FOR BEING THERE FOR ME FROM BEGINNING TO THE END.
GOD BLESS NINA AND HER FAMILY!
I was referred to Nina for my case as I was involved in a bank fraud scheme that involved multiple groups of people. What Nina did for me was incredible as she was able to take my charges down to the lowest denominator possible for this type of charge.
She worked and negotiated with the government to allow me to walk away during the sentencing with just a $100 court charge with no probation or any prison time. This is unheard of given my charges!!!
She also negotiated with the government to lessen the charges to one charge which was the best possible outcome under my circumstances.
She is incredibly bright and knows the criminal law back and forth and I would recommend anyone who needs a criminal attorney to go with Nina.
She loves helping people out in tough times and it shows with the great work that you receive.
Thanks Nina for everything!
Nina Marino is one of a kind. At the most difficult time of my life she was able to not only navigate me through the horrors of my case but also was there for me when I needed a sounding board. She never judged me, never made me feel like less of a person, always kept me on track.
When I was first arrested I had a different attorney. He was a very competent attorney but didn’t necessarily seem to truly have my back. I always felt reassured in the process with Nina. As I am sure you could imagine, this was a very devastating time in my life and I had no idea what to do and what was going to happen. Nina was there to guide me every step of the way. She is a very professional attorney and definitely knows how to get results. Every case is different but Nina does all of the research and is the best advisor in all aspects. She is extremely bright and able to quickly learn any area that is needed for a case. I am a true testament to that. My case was a bit out of the ordinary and Nina was able to learn the industry and argue my case very well.
I don't know if I can ever give enough praise to Nina for all that she did for me. My case dragged on for more than four years. Nina was there for me ALL THE WAY!
I can honestly say that there was not a lot of good that came of my case, but Nina was definitely at the top of the list of good things from this experience. I would recommend Nina Marino to anyone in need of an attorney. I know that she has what it takes and will do everything in her power to get the best outcome for her clients. I have been there and know firsthand, she is THE BEST!
I will like to recomend Nina Marino to anyone that really needs a hard working lawyer,she was a real professional at all times who kept me well informed and someone that fought my case with the DA till the end.
She was able to get me a 4 months time served out of a possible 10 years in prison because I was partly guilty of the charges the Federal Goverment was accusing me off.
Even when I was getting release I was re arrested again by a misunderstanding by the Immigration deparment and kept another 5 days incarcerated and even when it wasn´t her duty anymore to represent me she fought for me and got me released again.
I would recomend her 100 % and will always be thankfull to her.
After being informed that I was the target of a politically-driven white collar criminal investigation, I was fortunate to find Nina Marino to help me. She immediately grasped the facts and intricacies of a very complex situation and provided expert advice and counsel throughout the process. I have no doubt that, without her expertise, there would not have been a favorable outcome. Even when the criminal matter was over when the government declined to prosecute, she continued to fight for me through a Kalkines interview, mercilessly grilling the criminal investigator with her knowledge of the facts and the law. But more than anything, it was Nina’s passion for helping me that was invaluable to providing me moral support during a very difficult time. Knowing Nina was in my corner was priceless. Thanks forever, Nina!
From the get go everyone was pressuring me to go with a man for a lawyer, but my gut instinct told me to stick with Nina. I did and it ended up being the best decision yet. she stood by my side the entire way and took the government's case and ripped it in to shreds. Even though this was a pretty big case with many news paper articles and news reports i was never once worried that i was going to do any time. This is what a good lawyer does to you!!! I recommend her 100%
Finally, a lawyer with MORALS !!!
