Meet Changemaker Jennine Nwoko: Top Los Angeles Entertainment And Business Lawyer And Founder Of CJN Law Group

Los Angeles-based entertainment and business lawyer Jennine Nwoko is leading the way in a changing legal industry. Nwoko, founder of CJN Law Group, is dedicated to helping people in the entertainment industry. Nwoko wants to make legal representation more accessible to creative individuals like entertainers, artists, influencers, and entrepreneurs, especially those who may not know that they need it. She is currently in the process of developing this concept as a web app, the service will launch in the next month.

Nwoko is from Finland and moved to the United States 11 years ago. Originally, she planned to go to France to attend college. She came to Los Angeles for a sabbatical before starting school and decided she wanted to pursue her degree at UCLA. From there she headed to Loyola Law School, where she was highly active serving as the Social Chair of the Black Law Students Association, Vice President of the Business Law Society, and Staff Editor for Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review among other leadership roles.  During law school, she was a judicial extern for the Los Angeles Superior Court, as well as a law clerk and intern for several small and large law firms. Nwoko also has a background in entertainment promotions and speaks four languages.

After graduation, Nwoko went to work doing corporate litigation for a midsize firm, then moved to a larger law firm after a couple of years. She gained a lot of insight into the process, and how both sides worked.  Nwoko went into the field of law because she wanted to help people and after several years in corporate litigation, she started to branch out. With her previous work in that field, she is connected to several people in the entertainment industry, and often got asked for advice. Nwoko realized this was a place where could help individual people and really make an impact in their lives.

Because helping individual people had always been her goal, Nwoko decided to shift her focus and went to work with a boutique entertainment law firm. She was finding fulfillment with the work, helping people protect themselves and their businesses, after COVID-19 hit, Nwoko decided to make the transition to focusing on her own practice full time.

“Starting a new practice was chaotic during the pandemic, but a challenge is never enough to stop me!” Nwoko says.

She dug her heels in and after a couple months was able to get things situated and get her practice moving in high gear.

Because of her previous work with a large lifestyle festival in New York, Nwoko developed a large network of connections in the entertainment world; she now helps people in many areas of the industry through her firm. Her main focus is in music, fit tech, influencers, and intellectual property, including trademarks, with a strong passion for representing women and minorities in the industry. Additionally, she works with emergent and newly established businesses on their paperwork and legal questions. Her work with people who do not always realize they need legal help, and those who do not know how to access legal representation inspired her to create the soon-to-be-released legal tech app.  

“I want to encourage people to reach out for legal support far before they need it. A lot of situations I’ve seen clients run into could have been easily avoided had they had proper legal representation,” Nwoko says.

Nwoko is a modern, tech-savvy, extremely hardworking attorney who connects with every single one of her clients on a personal level. She hopes to transform the legal industry and make representation more accessible to people who need it, yet often cannot afford or access quality representation.
