Firm Information

Attorney Karin Ciano

Posted on: November 2nd, 2012 by Karin Ciano

I began practicing law in 1995 at the firm of Debevoise & Plimpton in New York, then joined the faculty of the Lawyering Program at NYU School of Law.

In 2003 I moved to Minnesota to clerk for the Honorable James M. Rosenbaum of the federal district court. I served as Judge Rosenbaum's career clerk until his retirement, and later had the opportunity to work with the Honorable Ann D. Montgomery and the Honorable Arthur J. Boylan. In 2011, I started my own firm, focusing on federal civil rights and employment litigation.

I am always looking for opportunities to meet good people and work on interesting cases.
