Mina Saffarian joined our New Lawyers Group (NLG) in 2019. The NLG provides our newest lawyers with the opportunity to gain exposure to different practice areas and lawyering styles before making a commitment to a specific practice. Individuals in the NLG may focus on a particular area of practice, or compare practices, during their first year with Jones Day.
Prior to law school, Mina worked as a legal assistant at the Veterans Justice Center at the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles. During law school she was a teacher's assistant for two undergraduate courses: "Law and Politics: Electing a President" and "Concepts in American Law."
