About Karim

Learn Karim’s areas of practice.

I was born in Boston, Massachusetts, but grew up in the Dominican Republic. After moving to Florida in 1999, I attended Christopher Columbus High School in Miami, Florida. I enrolled at Florida State University. I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in 2007 and Bachelor of Arts degree in 2009. I received my Juris Doctorate from Florida International University in 2013. I was admitted to the Florida Bar in the same year.


During law school, I participated in the Famiy & Education Clinic, Immigration & Human Rights Clinic, and did two internships at the Office of the State Attorney for the 11th Judicial Circuit. Additionally, throughout my time in law school, I achieved the Dean's list continously throughout my time in law school.


In February 2014, I opened my own practice where I focus predominately in the area of family law and the effects of criminal convictions and immigration status have on family cases. My office handles cases throughout South Florida, including Miami-Dade, Broward, and West Palm Beach.


I am currenly very active with the FSU Miami Alumni Associatio, FIU Law Alumni Association, the Cuban American Bar Association, and the Hispanic Bar Association.

Absolutely amazing Attorney!
I had been complaining to a friend how the attorney that I had at the time just did not get me any results, always rushed me off the phone and overall did not care. I was convinced that I should just represent myself and give up on paying for representation when it got me nowhere. Then she recommended that I met with Karim for a consultation before making that decision. During my meeting with Karim he was honest and upfront about the expectations on my case, he took his time in answering my questions and overall was patient in explaining everything to me. In the three years that my case had been open I had never achieved any of the results that Karim has been able to achieve in the few months that he has had my case. He works hard for results and has been an absolute blessing to my family. Hiring Karim was the best decision I made.

If you need an attorney in family law don't think twice about Karim!!
Karim has been such an asset in the handling of my case. I don't think we could've gotten such a quick and decisive answer regarding everything if it hadn't been for him. He was always there to answer questions. I liked how knowledgeable Karim was in family law. He seemed to have all the answers and if he wasn't sure he had a network he would go to for information- so it was kind of like having a bunch of attorneys in one. He was always willing to meet with me. I thought this was really important because I worked between Downtown Miami and The Falls but Karim was willing to meet with me if it was necessary to discuss something. He was also very empathetic through it all. I felt like he understood ever step of the way just how hard it was on us to have to go through with this case . All in all, if you need a family lawyer please don't hesitate to contact him. Talk to him and he can absolutely help you. If I ever need help in ANY other case, I'll go to him first.
