Nina Jasmin Petrow was born in Uznach, Switzerland.  Being the child of an international family, Nina was able to travel the world at a young age.  However, once she visited Texas at the age of 12, she knew this is where she wanted to pursue her version of the American Dream.  At 20, Nina moved to America after graduating from the Higher State College of Economics in Wattwil, Switzerland.  She then went on to Trinity University where she was named to the Dean’s List.  After receiving her Bachelor’s Degree, Nina received an academic scholarship to Chapman School of Law in Orange County, California.  Upon graduation, Nina was licensed to practice law in California in May of 2005.  Instead of entering the courtroom, Nina decided to further educate herself in the law and received a Master’s Degree in International and Comparative Law from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, TX in 2005 – where she has been fighting for her clients ever since.
