Karen Dunn Reflects on Her Landmark Trial Victories in Lawdragon Q&A
November 15, 2022
Litigation partner Karen Dunn was featured in a Lawdragon “Lawyer Limelights” Q&A highlighting her many trial accomplishments over the past decade. In “The Lawyer Who Helped Take Down the Charlottesville Neo-Nazis,” published on November 15, Karen reflects on her path to becoming a lawyer, her crisis management practice and her trial work, including in Epic Games v. Apple and Sines v. Kessler, the first and only private lawsuit to take on the leadership of the white supremacist movement.
“I think the most important asset you have as a trial lawyer is your authenticity,” Karen says. “So I don’t think about creating a particular style. I am just myself. I think when lawyers try to be someone they are not in real life, it undermines credibility and trust, which is the worst thing you can do. And no matter how many people are watching, I am focused on the only audience that will matter at the end of the day: the jury or, if it’s a bench trial, the judge.”
