4.5 stars 10 totalReview Karen Ulmer
I had a very complicated case that was over her head. I am very put off in the end by her lack of interest and professionalism. I did finally get my decree but it came with much misguidance, always suggesting going to court and being over charged. Beware you will be nickled and dimed for EVERYTHING.
I found the law firm of Karen Ann Ulmer to be highly professional and well organized. Michael D. Raisman is an excellent attorney and I am lucky to have him represent me in the manner that he did.
Everyone at the firm works well together and is highly effective.
I felt that I had a team behind me and legal issues were resolved in a caring manner.
We found Karen's ability to handle challenging family law litigation substandard, at best. She took over a week to return calls with no apology, refused to account for questionable time billed in our case, lost paperwork and so much more. Our experience with her firm was that of sincere regret. Resultantly, we will never recommend her or any attorney on her staff.
I got the great opportunity of working with Karen and April for my custody modification issues. Karen and her firm were very professional, knowledgeable and treated me like a human being instead of just a paycheck. All the way down to her staff working hard filing and collecting things for my case. They were very honest and explanatory of my options and what was the best decision for my children. They worked hard and had great compassion and accomplished what I needed in a very short amount of time. I was very impressed and forever grateful for Karen and April. I highly recommend this firm to anyone going through any sort of custody/support issues that unfortunately need to go to a court level. They are all a great team of people that work well together as if they were family themselves. Glad to know that I will always have them on my side if the need arises again!! Can't thank them enough!!!

Divorce is not easy emotionally or financially. Karen has made both very workable. She is an expert mediator and that helped a great deal during the divorce process right down to the final draft of the asset resolution process. I am thankful I had Karen Ann Ulmer as my attorney representing me during these trying times.

I was very anxious about my separation, and filing for divorce. Right from the start, Karen made me feel at ease, and calmed my fears. She communicated with me through every step of the divorce process--I always knew what was going on. When it came time to go to court, she definitely made me feel like she "had my back", and is extremely effective in the courtroom. I couldn't have asked for a better experience, or a more knowledgeable attorney, during this very difficult time in my life. When Karen says "We Are on Your Side", she really means it!!

My first lawyer was very laid back and encouraging me to settle. Karen explained what I could reasonably expect and the result was more than satisfactory. Everyone on her staff from Marge to April, Shane and Michael were always helpful when needed. There are lawyers out there who promise the world and deliver less. Go with Ulmer Law and you can expect honest, realistic advice on what outcome to expect and then realize those very results. I would use this firm again for any future legal needs.

I have nothing but good things to say about Karen and her firm. She helped me throughout a tough time in my life and even went above and beyond in her work. If anyone asks me for a family law attorney, I would recommend them to see Karen.

Going through a custody dispute is a scary nerve wrecking experience but you don't have to go through it alone. I made the mistake of opening up the phone book and hiring the attorney with the biggest ad, BIG MISTAKE. After realizing my mistake by hiring the wrong attorney at first, I went online and did my homework, I met with several attorney's and then I met Karen. Unfortunately, if you are going through an ugly custody battle you need the best, Karen is the best. After meeting with Karen and discussing my situation, Karen explained all my options and what she was prepared to do. A feeling of total relief came to me, the first time in over a month. I am no longer worried about the outcome cause I know I have the best attorney on my side. In the first week Karen represented me she did more than my previous lawyer did in a month. She knows how to navigate these ugly waters like a pro. If you have to go through this ugly process, you need Karen on your side. Also, Karen is extremely good at getting back to you if you have a big or small question/issue. You can make the same mistake I made, and use the first "phone book" lawyer you find, or you can not waste your time and money, and HIRE KAREN. I don't wish this experience on anyone, but if you have to go through it, you absolutely want Karen on your side...

Karen represented me in family law matter about 4 years ago, and I found her to be trustworthy and knowledgeable. She has also represented several of my family members and friends. I personally have recommended her to many, many people. In fact, I am also an attorney, and I often am asked for names of family law attorneys. Whenever my clients need someone who specializes in Family law, I feel more than comfortable giving them her name.
