Marina Nazarbekian joined the firm in January 2014. Upon graduating from law school in 2011, she initially focused her career on Federal Government Contracting Law. However, serving on a jury for a criminal case impacted her so much that she chose to alter the trajectory of her career and focus on Criminal Defense.

Ms. Nazarbekian is eager to combine her experience in Federal Government Contracting and Federal Courts with that of Criminal Defense.   She is passionate about providing every single client with diligent representation – ensuring they are well represented and taken care of.  Marina is also involved in her community, specifically with organizations like her Church’s youth organization and International Nonprofit Organizations.
