Nino & Mastro Attorney Profile: Ed Nino

Ed Nino

Managing Partner
Santa Cruz, California
Mr. Nino spent over 25 years as a deputy public defender with the Santa Clara County Public Defender's Office.  Much of that time was spent as a senior trial attorney.  He represented thousands of clients in cases ranging from low-level misdemeanors to capital murder.

Mr. Nino has tried over 100 jury trials, with an exceedingly high level of success.  Due to this success, he was tasked with acting as a supervising trial attorney, a capacity in which he taught other lawyers trial practice techniques.

Ed also created and taught continuing legal education courses for the public defender's office.

In order to more fully represent clients on a personal level, Ed partnered with Joe Mastro to form Nino & Mastro.  He focuses on all aspects of criminal defense, from DUIs to theft-related offenses to violent crime to complex white collar litigation.
