But who is Karen Jimeno, aside from being the spokesperson of Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona’s defense team?

Jimeno studied law at the University of the Philippines and graduated in 2005. She worked for the law firm Quisumbing, Torres, Evangelista. She also attended Harvard Law School in the US for her Master of Laws.

For those who are wondering about her relationship status. She just got married last January 7, 2012 to an investment banker from Texas, a certain Evan McBride.

Corona defense lawyer Ramon Esguerra recruited her to the defense team. Esguerra is Jimeno’s former professor in UP.
