Karen Martinez, Esq.


Karen holds a BA in Political Science and International Relations from USC and a JD from UC Hastings College of the Law. She worked at the Alliance for four years as a Legal Assistant and then as Education Coordinator before moving to the Bay Area to pursue her JD. Before returning to the Alliance she had the opportunity to assist youth, tenants, and refugees gain access to our legal system through the various public interest internships and clinics she participated in as a law student. She is happy to return to the Alliance and continue her career in public interest by advocating for the education rights of foster youth in Los Angeles County.
