Karen represented me in a highly contentious and emotional divorce. She is a brilliant attorney who also takes the time to understand the facts at hand. She was very reasonable and realistic in trying to bring my case to a settlement agreement; however, when it became clear that settlement was not possible or in my best interest, she expertly got me through a court trial. Her professionalism and experience made me feel confident that no matter what the outcome, I had the best legal representation that I could ask for. Karen took the time to understand and digest all of the information and was extremely thorough and well prepared throughout the process. I could not have gotten through this process without her. She is a tribute to her profession - caring but strong. I recommend her highly.
I worked with Karen a short time - I liked her however she dropped me mid case because she was nervous about my ex which I do not blame her for because my ex is very scary but I felt the correct thing to do would have been to return the entire retainer as barely any work was done and no motions filed. Other than I have to say I wish she could have stayed with me
I really appreciated all of Attorney Gersten's help with my divorce because of the emotional turmoil I was experiencing at that time -- she was my champion and there to fight for me. Her billing was accurate and fair and I would receive a statement every time she did substantial work on my case. Her office staff is very responsive to my questions when Attorney Gersten was not available. She is definitely a no-nonsense type of lawyer who had the respect of her peers and the judges. I was happy she was on my side and would definitely use her again if the need arises.
