Hello. My name is Katrina Dibbini. Though I'm an avid traveler, I'll always call New York home. Prior to attending law school, I worked in music, and fashion for a designer jewelry company. I capitalized on my fascination with brand protection in law school, focusing solely on intellectual property issues that affect luxury brands, media companies and the like, paying special attention to developments in copyright, trademark and First Amendment law. For the past 6 years, I've explored my passion for creative writing through a music blog, TheMusicChik.com, while also honing my legal writing skills through several scholarly research papers. I managed to marry the two as a staffed writer and Associate Managing Editor of my law school's newspaper, The Forum, a project I endeavored to resurrect after years of being inactive and unacknowledged. Finally, in my spare time, I write what I intend to eventually turn into a memoir. Recognition of my blog landed me a spot on the CBS-aired singing competition show "Lucky Break" as the show's resident judge for 2 seasons. As I come from a musical theatre background, my technical knowledge of vocal arts was apparent to both the contestants and the live audience members. Additionally, my ability to think and speak improvisationally and eloquently earned me positive feedback from producers and social media followers alike. Sincerely, Katrina Dibbini, Esq.
