Attorney Dina Richman’s Background in Healthcare Law Brings Valuable Insight to Lanterman's Board
Dina Richman, an attorney with Sedgwick, Detert, Moran & Arnold LLP, joined Lanterman’s board of directors this summer.
A 2007 graduate from UCLA School of Law, Richman concentrates her practice at the Los Angeles firm in the healthcare field and is well-versed in a wide variety of healthcare issues.
She shares, “My background in law, predominantly healthcare law, will bring valuable insight and experience to Lanterman’s board, particularly with respect to the legal, legislative and risk management challenges that the Center faces especially with the mandate to enroll everyone presently served through fee-for-service Medi-Cal into managed care. I also have a special interest in government affairs because my father, Keith Richman, was in the state Assembly, and I am thoroughly familiar with the legislative process and the State’s political system.”
Richman adds, “My cousin Jack, now age 12, was diagnosed with epilepsy when he was 3 and has dealt with, and continues to deal with the significant effects of his disability. He has received services through San Diego Regional Center, and through this personal experience I know that regional centers provide invaluable services to the community. It is an honor to have the opportunity to be involved with Lanterman and I am eager to give back to the community.”
An undergraduate of Pomona College, Richman is proficient in ancient Greek and classical Hebrew, and has knowledge of Spanish. She is a member of the American Bar Association, the Los Angeles County Bar Association, and the Associates Board of the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles. She is also involved with the Anti-Defamation League, which is an organization committed to fighting anti-semitism, bigotry and extremism all over the world.
She enjoys writing creatively and playing the piano, and is also interested in animal rights, serving on the executive board of the Animal Law Society and as a member of the Humane Society.
