LOS ANGELES, CA April 24, 2012 – CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) of Los Angeles (CASA/LA) announces the addition of Dan Nabel to its Board of Directors. CASA/LA is a non-profit organization whose volunteers serve the best interests of foster children in the courts and in the community.

Nabel’s excellent legal experience makes him a valuable asset to the CASA/LA Board. He currently serves as an associate with Los Angeles’ Greenberg Glusker Fields Claman & Machtinger LLP, where he specializes in the areas of real estate, business, entertainment and intellectual property. Nabel is also a member of Greenberg’s Pacific Rim Practice Group and is actively involved in pro-bono work for Public Counsel and the Alliance for Children’s Rights.

As CASA/LA looks to aggressively scale its volunteer base so they can serve more children, continued familiarity, cooperation and involvement with the California and Los Angeles County legal system will be a critical enabler of that growth. Nabel’s law expertise and previous children’s rights work will be invaluable to the organization in this regard.

“I wanted to join CASA’s board because CASA improves the lives of thousands of children who need help,” Nabel said. “Who wouldn’t want to be a part of an organization that does that?”

Nabel has also written for such publications as Law Law Land, the Los Angeles Daily Journal, and The Advocate Magazine. He is the author of “Disney and Warner Bros. Duel on the Yellow Brick Road,” Law Law Land, March 6, 2012; “Why Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s ‘Blue Ivy Carter’ trademark application actually makes sense,” Westlaw Journal – Entertainment Industry, March 2012; “Kanye West and his copyright infringement woes,” Los Angeles Daily Journal, January 18, 2012; and “When life hands you lemons, pray for a washing machine,” The Advocate Magazine, December 2011 among others.

Nabel received his B.A. in Global Studies from the University of California at Santa Barbara, graduating with high honors in 2005. He received his J.D. in 2009 from the University of Southern California Gould School of Law, where he lectures several times each year on “Deposition Strategies and Techniques.”
