Anel Gonzalez joined the Ginarte family in 2013, working part-time as a litigation assistant, while pursuing her undergrad degree in business administration with a marketing concentration at Montclair State University. Since joining the firm, 6 years ago, Anel has been reaping successes, and working a professional career where she has developed a love for the law and a desire to help those who are injured, and becoming an example to follow.
It was this great performance with which Anel achieved her first full-time job at the firm’s office located in Elizabeth, supporting lawyer Daniel Maisel, as a legal assistant in January 2016. Two years later, in December 2018, Anel was promoted to work again in Newark under the founder of the firm, Joseph Ginarte.
Today, Anel works with Joseph Ginarte, as his legal assistant, helping him in all major cases of workers’ compensation and in those cases involving large construction companies.
While Anel worked full time she also achieved one of her greatest goals. In August of this year, Anel completed her Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) from Montclair State University. Her graduation ceremony will take place in January 2020, where her family will be able to see her graduated not only with an undergraduate degree, but also with a Master’s degree.
Originally from the Dominican Republic, Anel arrived to the United States at age 5 along with her parents, who carried many dreams and wanted to get ahead, and sought a better future for their children. She is the eldest of two brothers and the only girl, she is also the first person in her family to go to college, so this Master’s represents a great feat not only for Anel but also for her whole family.
For Anel, her work at the firm is a unique opportunity to connect with others and help the injured. Her main motivation, now that she earned her Master’s degree, is to continue learning, not only through her work experience with Joseph Ginarte but from the team that surrounds her, who have an incredible work ethic and dedication in contributing positively to the firm.
