Mentorship is key in navigating nearly any profession, but especially in the practice of law. Listen to this week’s episode of The Mother Board, where Taylor Poncz and Aarati Subramaniam speak with one of their mutual mentors, Drew Eckl & Farnham’s partner, Karen Karabinos. Karen discusses the many ways she has received and given mentorship over her 3+ decades of practicing law. She also offers advice and practical tips for how to weave her mentorship strategies into business development.
Karen Karabinos has been litigating cases for more the 35 years, with the last 24 primarily focused on the complexities of property insurance law. She has successfully litigated more than 80 trials and hearings and annually conducts approximately 50 depositions and examinations under oath. She works to know her client’s business strategy and goals, which allows her to partner with her clients in efficiently investigating and adjusting property claims and in defending her clients in coverage, bad faith, arson, fraud, cyber and property damage cases. She also represents clients with family law issues, including divorce and child custody issues, and assists her individual clients to resolve the family issues with her domestic relations team, which consists of accountants, financial advisors, and therapists.
The Mother Board is a podcast hosted by a group of Drew Eckl & Farnham lawyers. The name represents the fact that they’re mothers who have taken charge of their careers while still being very engaged with their families. Like a computer motherboard, these women are dealt with so much, yet they manage to do it all exceptionally. How do they do it?
