Dina Nesheiwat Raley


Dina Nesheiwat Raley is the President and Founder of the Justice For All Institute™ (JFAI). Practicing law for nearly 15 years inspired her to create a focal point where those underserved, or wrongfully convicted have resources and aid, including free legal services, within their reach. From the outset of her legal career, Dina has provided numerous hours of pro-bono legal services to families and communities in need. She was recently recognized by the Tennessee Supreme Court as an Attorney For Justice, and has been awarded as a Top Super Lawyer and Rising Star Attorney for seven consecutive years. Dina is admitted to practice law in Iowa, New York, Florida, Tennessee, Texas and Washington, D.C., and she is admitted to practice law before the United States Federal District Courts for The Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, The Southern and Middle Districts of Florida, The Middle District of Tennessee,
Northern District of Iowa, The United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, and The Supreme Court of the United States of America.

Dina was raised into a family of service, and from a young age has always shared a passion for volunteering and giving back to her community. In addition to serving on the Board for JFAI, Dina also serves on the Board of Operation Rose, an organization working to prevent human trafficking, and, on the Board of CPA Academy’s Criminal Justice Program. She received her Bachelors Degree at Stetson University, her Juris Doctorate at St. Thomas University School of Law in Miami, and her LLM Master’s of Law Degree at Cardozo School of Law in New York City. When Dina is not fighting for justice, she enjoys watching documentaries with her husband, Roger, and their two dogs, and cat, Macy, Hank, and Marlon.
