Karima started her journey in mediation and conflict management as a result of street violence. Many of her neighbor’s children were killed by drive-by shootings and gang activity. Becoming a trained mediator was a way of release from the pain of loss and helplessness brought on by community violence.
Karima received her mediation training at Staten Island Community Mediation Center, where she volunteered for several years. She also volunteered at the community mediation center's magistrate court mediation annex.
Karima's paralegal training began at a Georgia plaintiff's law firm where she worked several years as a litigation paralegal. She furthered her paralegal training at a local career Institute. Now you can find Karima at the university advancing her legal education.
You can imagine how some clients react when they first see her, a Muslim woman who observes the traditional Islamic dress code. However, her clients love and trust her expertise.
Karima is a talented mediator and paralegal with a keen eye for details.
