An ABSOLUTE GEM!!
I recommend Dawn Kaplan to anyone going through a difficult divorce. Her compassion and understanding far exceeded my expectations. I had so many difficult hurdles in my divorce and Dawn was able to get through them all and literally "held my hand" every step of the way. Love her and have recommend her wholeheartedly.
I thoroughly believed and trusted in Dawn. I was charged over 40,000 for my divorce, thistle to get child support and alimony. I was billed for issues pertaining to custody and my ex husbands dislike of our parenting schedule both of which had been court ordered prior to my hiring Dawn. Although she was aware of my desperate financial situation I was billed over 30000 after my first two retainers of 5000 were used. The errors were enormous! I suggest anyone hiring Dawn first investigate why she is no longer at Charny Charny & Karpousis. My case went to trial and in the end I got exactly what I had asked for 3 yrs ago when we srperated. When I complained to Dawn. @ being unhappy and feeling misguided she took no resbonsibility and blamed me...took herself off of my case leaving many loose ends which have yet to be resolved a year later. I went through hell with my ex husband and cannot express how much worse Dawns representation made my situation. I hope that this review helps someone else to avoid the same outcome!
Dawn is now in her own practice in Haddonfield NJ and I would highly recommend her to anyone for a family/divorce legal issues. I was hit by a bus with the news of my divorce after 30 yrs of marriage and I am thankful a friend/neighbor recommended her to me.
