Thomas & LoCicero is expanding its media and communications law practice, welcoming Miami attorney Karen Williams Kammer.

Adding Karen to the team continues to deepen and broaden our standing as Florida’s leading media law firm.”
Kammer has represented journalists for decades, defending them in libel and privacy litigation and protecting their right of access to court proceedings and records. She has represented the media in high-profile criminal cases, including the prosecutions of Carmen and Jorge Baharona, Manuel Noriega and William Kennedy Smith, among many others. Kammer also has litigated public records matters in the Florida Supreme Court.
In addition to her media work, Kammer handles other civil litigation matters and often serves as an attorney’s fee expert.
