Three lawyers sworn in

This morning three young lawyers of VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne were sworn in by the Common Court of Justice of Curaçao, Aruba, St. Maarten, and of Bonaire, Statia, and Saba.

Remarkable, but not a coincidence, is that all three lawyers have a link with Curaçao somehow.

Cristel King was raised on the island and went to “Peter Stuyvesant College”. After having completed her law studies in Leiden, she worked as a lawyer with a process server’s office. Since July 2010 she has been an associate of VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne.

Karina Keizer also grew up on the island. After having graduated from the same “Stuyvesant”, she studied at the University of Amsterdam. She had a traineeship there with the criminal defense lawyer Gerard Spong. Since October 2010 she has worked with the firm at Julianaplein.

Finally, Michael Druijts got his law degree at the University of Maastricht and first worked in the Netherlands with Citco, originally an Antilles company. Since November 2010 he has worked with VanEps Kunneman VanDoorne. All three they state to be proud to be members of the Curaçao bar.
