Nina’s experience includes reviewing health care plans for compliance with the federal Employment Retirement Income and Security Act (“ERISA”), interpreting California’s Knox-Keene Act, ERISA and the federal Emergency Treatment and Labor Act (“EMTALA”). She is the author of New Healthcare Laws Potentially Increase Access to Care for Transgender People published in the American Bar Association’s (ABA) The Health Lawyer in December 2013 and Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act Could Expand Coverage for Gender Dysphoria published in the ABA’s Health eSource in March 2015.
She volunteers for the Venice citation clinic, a monthly clinic that provides representation to the homeless near and around the Venice boardwalk. From 2015 to 2017, she also volunteered for the Clemency Project 2014, former President Barack Obama’s initiative to grant clemency to low-level drug offenders.
