Karen Munoz: Dolan Law

Karen MunozI primarily practice law on behalf of injured plaintiffs. The cases have included wrongful death, medical malpractice, premises liability, product liability and cases arising out of the criminal conduct of others.

I started at Dolan Law, which has always been a plaintiff’s law firm, and learned everything I could about the practice and the law, culminating in my law degree from John Marshall in 2008.

How has your practice evolved in the last few years?

I definitely can attest to the transformation, not only of the way I practice, but of my perspective on how much lawyers can really make a difference in the lives of those who come to us.

If you could offer one piece of advice for young lawyers, what would it be? 

Never lose your cool; always be civil and professional to everyone you encounter.

What is the one technological device you could not function without daily?

E-mail. It allows me to work no matter where I am.

How has civility made a difference in your practice of law?

Being civil goes a long way in this practice. I have had cases referred to our office by opposing counsel because they have respected the manner in which I interacted with them and their office.

What do you do for fun?

I love yoga. I try to practice every day and to take the peace that comes from the practice into my everyday interactions.

Karen Munoz is a trial attorney with the Dolan Law team in Chicago.
