  • Christopher G Lang

    I have referred several divorce matters to Karen over the last few years. I have found her to be extremely knowledgeable and very skilled at working not only with opposing counsel but also with her clients, who are often going through very difficult circumstances. She is practical in her advice, and always reassuring. I highly recommend her.
