If you were to ask Karina to describe the true mark of a lady, she’d probably say something along the lines of, “un don et cœur compatissant” which is French for “a giving and compassionate heart.” Impressive, no? Oui! That is exactly what comes to mind when we think of Karina – not to mention her extraordinary command of the French language (additionally she has a working knowledge of conversational Tagalog)!
After receiving her B.A. from UCLA where she majored in English literature with a concentration in world literature, and a French literature minor, Karina went on to receive her J.D. from Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego. Licensed in the state of California, she has been practicing law for over 10 years, 9 of which were spent in juvenile law advocating for clients in family matters concerning their children. The work she accomplished provided her exposure to countless family dynamics where she could support clients in crisis through their toughest times. And we have observed her incredible passion for making sure that clients’ rights are protected, going above and beyond the call of duty—truly a model citizen with a servant’s heart.
A recent transplant to Brentwood from San Diego, CA, Karina highly values family. Some of her many pastimes include reading, active outdoor activities, listening to music, dancing, art, and cooking. Her strong sense of justice, and dedication to serving the public are just a few of her many wonderful traits. The Law Offices of Silky Sahnan is lucky to have such a kindhearted and adventure-loving attorney as part of our legal team!
