“Adina is an extremely consciencious self-starter who had to overcome several obstacles to get to where she is right now and has on several occasions ventured outside of her comfort zone quite successfully. She is very resourceful and creative in identifying opportunities and capitalizing on them. Her knowledge of different legal systems and her cross-cultural skills enable her to have a unique perspective on complex legal issues. She is an asset to any environment she chooses to work in.” August 2, 2009
