    Nina is one of the few other lawyers whose cards I keep on my desk in case I need to make a referral. I have had the pleasure of sitting down with her and discussing our practices, and she has a quiet confidence and is an exceptional listener - 2 great qualities in a lawyer that are difficult to find in California. I highly recommend her in the event you are looking for an entertainment, tax, or intellectual property attorney!
