After law school, Professor Einesman's ambition to become a criminal defense lawyer brought her to San Diego, where she was a trial attorney at Federal Defenders of San Diego, Inc. Her career included solo practice, handling complex civil litigation at the San Diego law firm Procopio, Cory, Hargreaves & Savitch, and visiting at the University of San Diego School of Law as a clinical professor. Einesman's publications concentrate on issues in criminal procedure; including the constitutionality of a grand jury subpoena for blood, and the interaction of Miranda and culture. Additionally, she is a trained mediator who mediates disputes at various locations throughout San Diego.
