Marisa M. Kashino

Marisa M. Kashino came to DC in 2007 to write for the weekly newspaper Legal Times. Highlights of her time there include interviewing Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and traveling to Afghanistan to report on efforts to establish a functioning justice system in the country. She joined Washingtonian as a staff writer in September 2009. In that role, she reported and wrote feature stories on a variety of topics, including juvenile sex trafficking in the suburbs, the rise and fall of powerful Washington law firms, and Jack Abramoff’s attempt at a post-prison comeback.

Kashino became a senior editor in 2014. She continues to write, and also oversees Washingtonian’s Home section, which includes coverage of design, real estate, development, and pets. She compiles the magazine’s Best Lawyers list, which publishes every other year.

Kashino grew up in the Seattle area, and graduated from the University of Washington where she studied journalism and political science. She lives in Northeast DC with her husband, and their dog and cat. You can find her on Twitter at @marisakashino and reach her by email at
