Founder/Managing Partner


Karem began her legal career in 1996 as a Legal Assistant at the Law Office of Adalsinda Lomangino, P.A. and focused on the area of Immigration Litigation. In 1997, she went back to school to complete her education, earning a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Florida International University. Karem attended St. Thomas University School of Law, achieving academic recognition in multiple semesters.


After completing her Juris Doctor, Karem became a Hearing Officer for the State of Florida’s Unemployment Compensation Unit until 2003. In 2004, Karem was an Associate Attorney for Lataif & Associates, and focused her work on Immigration cases. Shortly after, she began to find that many of her cases encompassed aspects of Family Law, so she expanded her practice area to comprise Family Law.


In 2007, Karem opened the Hadjez Law Firm. In 2008, Karem joined forces with Michaelle Gonzalez Paulson, Esq. (elected to the bench as a member of the judiciary in 2010) and together they created the Law Center of South Florida, P.A.
