Before starting law school, Kareen knew she wanted to help those in need. At Southwestern Law School, she worked for the Community Lawyering Clinic, where she provided legal guidance to college students on issues including DACA renewals and landlord-tenant disputes. She also worked for the Removal Defense Clinic, assisting low-income immigrants in immigration removal proceedings before the Executive Office of Immigration.
Prior to joining Lawyers for Justice, PC (LFJ), Kareen was a Judicial Law Clerk for the Honorable Amy M. Pellman, where she conducted legal research and drafted case summaries. After taking the California Bar Exam, Kareen traveled to Armenia and volunteered with Path of Law, a non-governmental organization. There, she conducted client intakes for repatriated Armenian prisoners of war and drafted memorandums to be filed with the European Court of Human Rights.
Now at the LFJ, Kareen advocates for the rights of California employees.
