As an Associate of the firm, Malina is working on matters spanning multiple practice areas, with a focus on representing tribal governments and tribally-owned entities.

During law school, Malina received a fellowship to study Inuktitut, an Inuit language, and focused much of her academic study on the legal frameworks that impact Indigenous people in Canada, the United States, and within international organizations. She served as an Arctic Fellow in the Jackson School of International Studies and a Hazelton Fellow within the UW Arctic Law & Policy Institute. She participated in the Tulalip Tribal Court Public Defense Clinic, where she assisted in representing tribal clients that had been charged with criminal offenses. Malina also served as a summer clerk at the Navajo Nation Department of Justice in Window Rock, Arizona, where she worked directly for the Navajo Nation Attorney General. She was Co-President of the International Law Society at the University of Washington School of Law and served as an editor for the Washington International Law Journal.

Prior to law school, Malina worked as an international development professional in Washington, DC and was a Fulbright Scholar in the Republic of Moldova. She received her Master's degree in Eurasian, Russian, and East European Studies with a Certificate in Refugees and Humanitarian Emergencies. In college, she was an Albright Fellow in the Madeleine Korbel Albright Institute for Global Affairs. She interned at the U.S. Embassy in Sofia, Bulgaria and studied abroad in Germany and Russia. After spending many years away, Malina is happy to be back in her home state of Maine.
