Alina Pavlova


Ms. Pavlova is a litigation associate in the San Francisco office of Murphy Pearson Bradley & Feeney. She represents businesses and individuals in all phases of civil litigation. Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Pavlova was a research attorney for the Superior Court of California, Santa Clara County, as well as a law clerk for the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office and the United States Attorney's Office, NDCA.

Ms. Pavlova was born in the Ukraine and grew up speaking Russian. When she was ten years old, she moved to the United States with her family in pursuit of a better life with greater opportunities. She entered the fifth grade not knowing a word of English, and has come a long way since then. As most Eastern Europeans, Ms. Pavlova grew up dancing, including ballet, ballroom, and hip-hop. While she had to put this hobby on hold to prioritize her studies, she plans on re-enrolling in dance classes again. In her spare time, Ms. Pavlova enjoys exploring San Francisco through food, taking frequent trips to New York City, and spending time with friends.
