Powell, Kugelman & Postell is pleased to announce the addition of Alina A. Big, Esq. as the newest attorney to join the firm. Alina is a savvy and resilient professional who initially trained in civil and common law in Romania five years ago. She then immigrated to the United States, with her dream of becoming an attorney licensed to practice law in the United States being fulfilled in December 2021. Alina joined Powell, Kugelman & Postell, LLC, in 2019 in her second year at Seton Hall University School of Law, as a law clerk and continued her employment with the firm after graduating from Seton Hall University School of Law in May 2021. Prior to attending law school in the United States, Alina received a Bachelor of Law (L.L.B.) from Romania in 2017.  Alina was sworn into the New Jersey Bar in December and is expected to be sworn into the New York bar within the next several months. To further enhance her studies while attending law school, Alina simultaneously interned with the Honorable Robert J. Mega, J.S.C. of the Superior Court of the State of New Jersey, Union County, Civil Division, where she assisted the court with research and legal writing for the Complex Business Litigation Program. Assisting Judge Mega in various cases, including commercial disputes, has validated her pursuit of a career in business law.  Alina thrives under pressure and is looking forward to walking up those courthouse steps to litigate cases. Alina was also a member of the Seton Hall Law Health Justice Clinic, Seton Hall Legislative Journal, and the Co-Chair of the Seton Hall Election Committee. As a Seton Hall Legislative Journal member, Alina authored an article that advocates for stringent federal regulation of biometric data in financial institutions.


We are excited to welcome Alina in her new role as an Associate Attorney, where she will handle insurance defense and coverage litigation, international business transactions, intellectual property matters, and commercial litigation and transactions.
