Meet Mia Tinari, a young woman making things happen every day in and around Philadelphia, for her clients at Nino V. Tinari & Associates law firm, where she is an attorney practicing both criminal and entertainment law.  In her entertainment law practice Mia legally represents and manages recording artists, dancers, athletes, production companies, as well as other entertainment personalities. Although this is a demanding occupation, Mia enjoys the protection and peace of mind she offers her clients. Always having their best interest at heart, Mia spends hours reviewing documents, negotiating contracts, and jet setting off to Los Angeles, New York, or where ever it is her clients need her. It’s all worth it though, knowing Mia is guaranteeing each client the protection they deserve. Mia finds this professionally rewarding. Of course, entertainment law has it’s perks as well, for example, Mia recently attended the 34th Annual Grammy Awards and was fortunate enough to mingle with the “Greats”, such as, Tony Bennet, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, Taylor Swift and Adele.

“What I love about my occupation is that I don’t have to sit in an office all day long. One day I am flying to Los Angeles and the next day I will be in New York. I enjoy working. I love what I do. If, as their manager or lawyer I can assist a new artist propel their career to the next level, I will.”

What’s Happening in 2012 for Mia? She is currently working on a music based reality show with a New York production company, and she is looking forward to seeing the show come to fruition as this particular concept has never been done before! She is also looking forward to the Shane Victorino Foundation’s 3rd Annual All-Star Celebrity Fashion Show where Mia will strut her stuff down the catwalk with Joe Piscopo, the Phillies players and their wives on June 18th at the Union League. Always on the go, Mia is also looking forward to the Chase Utley All-Star Animals fundraiser benefiting the Pennsylvania SPCA, The St. Martin De Porres event, “Night at the Wax Museum” at Citizens Bank Park celebrating notable African Americans, the Marian Anderson Awards, and the Bethesda Project, which serves the chronically homeless.
