Maricela Gonzalez is an associate at WSHB’s Chicago office. She began working with the firm as a paralegal in February 2020, during which time she also attended law school at night. Working during the day and studying law at night requires immense drive and dedication, both of which Maricela possesses in spades. This real-world experience serves Maricela and our clients well.

Before becoming an associate with the firm, and for close to twenty years, Maricela worked as a paralegal at both law firms and insurance companies. As a paralegal, she frequently managed complex legal issues and conducted comprehensive research, tasks requiring strong analytical skills and problem-solving abilities. While working with numerous attorneys over the years, she developed the strategic advocacy required to be a truly effective lawyer.
