Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick Named to City & State’s ‘The 2023 Power of Diversity: Latino 100’ List

NEW YORK – Sept 27, 2023 – Carmen Beauchamp Ciparick, of counsel  in Greenberg Traurig, LLP’s Appeals & Legal Issues Group has added inclusion on City & State’s “The 2023 Power of Diversity: Latino 100” list to her many achievements. The list recognizes “the most influential Latinos who are serving in public office, running businesses, leading nonprofits, and advocating for policy changes in New York,” according to the publication.

Ciparick, a former New York State Court of Appeals Senior Associate Judge, was the first Latina to sit in a court of record in New York State in 1978, and later the first Latino/Hispanic on the Court of Appeals. Today, she works diligently to create a pipeline of opportunities for diverse attorneys. Of Puerto Rican descent, Ciparick was born in New York City, grew up in Washington Heights, graduated from Hunter College, and received her J.D. from St. John's University School of Law. Her work, passion for New York, and ethnic background uniquely position her to impact access to justice.

Ciparick is Chair of the State Board of Law Examiners for the State of New York Court of Appeals and Past Chair of the Board of Trustees for the Historical Society of the Courts of the State of New York. Ciparick was appointed by the Chief Judge to co-chair the New York Justice Task Force that examines the causes of wrongful convictions. Under the previous New York City Administration, she held the position of Chair of the Mayor’s Advisory Committee on the Judiciary.

At Greenberg Traurig, Ciparick advises clients on appellate matters and litigation strategy and mentors the firm's junior lawyers.
