I recommend Karen Svendsen as an expert in Family Law and exceptionally talented lawyer without reservation. After almost a year of little to no progress in my case for child support, a very astute friend of my gave me Karen Svendsen's phone number. She had skillfully brought my friend's divorce case to an optimal conclusion. My prior lawyer didn't prepare or guide me, and actually put my case in jeopardy due to their lack of experience. Karen Svendsen was attentive and helpful from our first conversation. In our first meeting, within 15 minutes she had not only mastered the facts of my case but very easily pointed out extremely advantageous holes and significant intricasies specifically beneficial to my case. She fought on my behalf from the beginning until the very end. Because of her superb skill in negotiating, her understanding of the court and the depth of her experience she was able to reach an advantageous settlement for me. Achieving a settlement has allowed my ex husband and I to go forward with a calmness and decency towards one another which never would have been possible had we gone to trip and both testified. Karen Svendsen's professional, experienced, compassionate & honest demeanor gave me a feeling of calm in what was one of the more difficult years of my life. I am eternally grateful to her.
Ms. Svendsen, has provided legal counseling for me over the past several years. Both personally and professionally, Ms. Svendsen has always provided professional excellence with successful outcomes.
I would highly recommend Karen Svendsen and her firm for all legal matters.
I originally came to Karen several years ago to discuss a legal separation. This was an extremely difficult time for me. Karen demonstrated the knowledge and sensitivity necessary to put me at ease. When my divorce was finalized, I felt comfortable knowing that I had Karen to represent me. If you're looking for an advocate who is knowledgeable, responsive and senstive to client needs, Karen should be your first choice.
I'm currently in the process of a divorce . Like most people , this is something that hopefully doesn't happen every day. I remember having so many questions and I worried a lot about whether or not I missed something or forgot to mention something else. On the day of our initial meeting with the opposite side , I was feeling a wreck , but Karen walked me through what was to happen , answered all my questions , and ultimately represented me and my wants . She was confident in her delivery , stern in her demeanor. I would definitely recommend Karen !
Karen Svendsen did an excellent job representing me in a child custody case. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a competent attorney. She is extremely effective and because of her I now have custody of my daughter. I can’t thank her enough.
Karen Svendsen is recommended as a professional, smart, and strong Lawyer who has her clients represented at the highest level and in their best interests. She is a Lawyer you will want on your side. Every potential issue she resolved for my best interest and positive outcome. I assure you will be happy you hired this expert. I was lucky to have a referral say she is the best-I should say I agree with that statement.
Ms Svendsen provided excellent service. She was prompt and very knowledgeable and I would recommend her to anyone seeking legal guidance.
I found Ms Svendsen to be highly qualified! Her knowledge and professionalism made me feel I was in great hands. I really cant say enough about how thorough she was in her research for the case. But really above all it was her interaction with me in explaining step by step what was happening and making me feel confident about the very positive outcome.
I retained Karen to handle my separation. At a time in my life when I was scared and confused, she made me feel comfortable and secure in my decision. She helped me to understand the legal process and figure out how I could manage in the future as a single mother. She always returned my calls and answered all my questions. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone needing an attorney.
