Bronx Workers’ Compensation Attorney Karlee Makely

Karlee Makely

Meet Karlee, a bright and accomplished attorney who is passionate about fighting for the rights of others. Karlee’s academic journey began at Muhlenberg College, where she earned a B.S. in Neuroscience with minors in Political Science and Philosophy. Her love for intellectual property law and constitutional literacy led her to Rutgers Law School, where she completed her J.D. While at Rutgers, Karlee was actively involved in the Intellectual Property Law Clinic, the Planning Estates Probono Project, and served as a Marshall Brennan Constitutional Literacy fellow. She also interned with the New Jersey Division of Law – Health and Human Services, and served as a transactional extern at the Rutgers Office of General Counsel.

Karlee’s dedication to helping others extends beyond the legal profession. She grew up in Jackson, New Jersey, and enjoys spending her free time catching a Yankee game or lounging on a local beach. Above all, Karlee values her family and friends, and cherishes the time she spends with them.

Karlee is thrilled to start her legal career with the O’Connor Law team, where she can continue to advocate for those in need. She believes that fighting for the rights of others is a privilege and is eager to assist injured workers in their time of need.
