VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne strengthens team in Aruba with two attorneys

ORANJESTAD - VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne has recently expanded the team in Aruba with two attorneys.
In May this year Jovanca Frolijk was sworn in by the Joint Court of Justice of Curacao, Aruba, St. Maarten and of Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba. Elina Blaauboer was sworn in on the 18th of September this year. Jovanca started her career in the Corporate & Finance section and Elina started her career in the Litigation & Commercial section. They both have been with VanEps
Kunneman VanDoorne since 2017.
Jovanca was born and raised on Aruba and completed her master in Civil Law at the University of Leiden. Prior to that, she had already obtained a master’s degree in Criminology as well, focusing on criminal policy and law enforcement. As a student, Jovanca gained experience through internships and by working as a legal assistant for several law firms. Soon it was clear to her that she wanted to become an attorney at law: “My first internship at a law firm was immediately decisive and confirmed my preference for the legal profession. I also wanted to get back to my roots. That is why I feel right at home at VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne on Aruba.”
Elina graduated from Erasmus University Rotterdam in 2017 with a master’s degree in Employment Law. Besides of having work experience in a wide range of internships, she was also active as a board member of a legal aid center and the Employment Law Association of the Legal Faculty in Rotterdam. Elina gained work experience in Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. “I came to Aruba for the first time due to my internship at VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne and by experiencing to work as an attorney in the Caribbean my interest and love for the island developed” said Elina.
Taking the oath was a special moment for Jovanca: “That I could be sworn in under the watchful eye of my proud family made the picture complete. Now, I am also allowed to represent my clients in court and I can fully pursue the law profession. I would also like to express my appreciation for the personal speech of Frans van Deutekom, advocate general at the Public Prosecution Service, in which he emphasized that he had noticed that I – as a lawyer and a criminologist – approach the law and law enforcement from multiple angles.”
Whereas taking the oath is a really special moment for some, nothing really changes in the eyes of Elina. “It mostly makes it official”, said Elina. Nevertheless she is happy that her career as a lawyer officially starts from now on.
