Dina Sayegh Doll is an experienced corporate attorney and certified mediator. She began her career as a mergers and acquisitions lawyer at Gibson Dunn & Crutcher in 1999, before shifting careers several years later to focus full time on mediation. As a panel mediator for the Los Angeles Superior Court as well as in her own private practice, she resolved over 100 cases in mediation, including some of the most complex business, employment, and consumer disputes on the Superior Court's and District Court's docket. She co-founded the law firm of Doll Amir & Eley in 2004, before taking a break from the law to focus on raising her young kids, writing creatively, and mentoring other women through various personal and professional challenges.
She has now returned to the practice of law, not only as a mediator but as a media commentator. She brings to each of these roles a unique perspective as to why some cases go to trial and others resolve early. There is a strategic, financial, and emotional component to every lawsuit. Understanding the interplay between these components is the key to early success in a lawsuit. Law is simple; people are complicated -- if you want to resolve a case outside the courtroom, focus on the people.
Dina received her law degree from the University of Southern California where she served as Editor of the Law Review and was elected Order of the Coif. She received her undergraduate degree in journalism from the University of Southern California graduating magna cum laude. She was a member of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. She is a published journalist, has lived abroad in Spain, and enjoys writing poetry.
