Nina M. Paolini-Lotarski, an associate with O’Reilly Rancilio, prides herself on being a bulldog in litigation. Litigators, or trial lawyers, represent defendants and plaintiffs in civil lawsuits. When she handles a case, Ms. Lotarski takes every advantage from conducting thorough discovery to arguing for the best interest of her client. She negotiates while keeping her client’s best interest in mind. Communication is important as well, and she is always upfront about what to expect during and at the end of a trial.

At the Michigan Attorney General’s Office, Child and Youth Services Division, Ms. Lotarski served as a clerk where she assisted in the prosecution of child abuse cases in Wayne County. She also participated in the Criminal Law Clinic for the 35th District Court as a criminal defense attorney.

Ms. Lotarski received her Bachelor of Arts degree, summa cum laude, in 2013 from the University of Michigan, and her Juris Doctor degree, cum laude, from the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law in 2016.  

While in law school, she served as an Associate Board Member for the University of Detroit Mercy Moot Court, participated in the National Trial Advocacy Competition 2015, was named to the Dean’s List, and received a Book Award for the highest grade in Trial Practice and Property.  As an undergraduate, she received two first place awards – one for nonfiction short story and the other for fiction short story.

A believer in community service, Ms. Lotarski served as a board member of the St. Thomas More Society where she organized charity events for women’s shelters, food banks, and military outreach.
