We Are Broaden Law LLP


Marisa E. Nahale, Esq.

Ms. Nahale began her legal career working as an in-house attorney at a Fortune 500 company in the Bay Area.  After relocating to San Diego, Ms. Nahale co-founded Broaden Law LLP and is dedicated to helping people through difficult matters and minimizing legal fees.  Ms. Nahale gives back to the community through a nonprofit she established in 2015 called The Kokua Foundation.  The purpose of the Kokua Foundation is two fold: fulfilling underprivileged children’s holiday wishes during the holidays, and instilling in our children the importance of giving back.


Naima B. Solomon, Esq.

Ms. Solomon began her legal career working at a mid-size law firm in downtown San Diego, where she had the opportunity to work as part of a sophisticated team of business lawyers.  Passionate about efficiency in all things, Ms. Solomon co-founded Broaden Law LLP so she could combine her entrepreneurial spirit with the law business.  Ms. Solomon's passion is to identify a variety of strategies and then to let her clients be involved in the decision-making process.  She consistently brings a unique perspective to every legal problem.
