Paulina Gary


Paulina Gary is a Paralegal at Zinzow Law. Paulina and her four siblings grew up in various parts of the country, but she spent most of her formative years living in New Jersey and Florida, with stents in Chicago and Japan. Her father worked in finance and corporate America and helped Paulina hone her logic and scientific intellect. Her mother, a social worker, instilled empathy and a love for the creative arts. In college, Paulina discovered a passion for biological anthropology and spent time in Romania working on 15th and 16th-century juvenile anthropology, helping to unite familial lineage with their ancestral roots. Paulina was drawn to anthropology because the entire science focuses on using creativity and analytical thinking to think outside the box and discover uncommon solutions to unique challenges, which is something that Paulina has carried with her in every professional role. When she started working in a business law firm, Paulina discovered a love for the law. She realized she could use her curious mind, creativity, and analytical skills to help clients navigate the complex legal world.
When not working as a paralegal, you can find Paulina working in one of the creative arts, performing in an off-off Broadway musical, singing, dancing, or acting; a true Renaissance woman. She can also be found playing at-home escape room games with her husband, family, and friends and perhaps snuggling with her two cats.
