Karen Zuniga is a member of the Ginarte team in the Newark office, where she is a legal assistant, supporting Robert H. Baumgarten, Esq. However, her professional career began six years ago, in October 2013, when she joined the team as a litigation department receptionist. Karen has continued to grow professionally into the role she currently holds, working with one of the firm’s lawyers in personal injury cases.
Karen always wanted to be part of the legal system, she even thought about studying law when she finished her undergraduate studies. She joined the Ginarte team, as the firm provided her with the opportunity to expand her knowledge of the legal system and also to work professionally within the legal field.
Karen was born and raised in New Jersey. She has a strong bond with her community. This is another reason why her work at Ginarte is quite gratifying. She feels she can make a difference in people’s lives, by becoming thoroughly involved in their cases.
With the birth of her son, Thiago, Karen now believes her work is more important than ever. After finishing her maternity leave, Karen returned to work because she feels the work at Ginarte focuses on creating a better future for her son, her family, and her community.
By having an excellent professional environment, a team that supports each other, and family as the pillar on which she builds her life, Karen can continue to develop both professionally and personally. Now she embarks on one of the most important roles of her life, being a mother.
