Monday-morning quarterback tells me I should have called Karen Persis immediately when I had a problem. However, when I did contact Karen, she was responsive, knowledgeable and sympathetic . She understood the problem and resolved the issue within a week to my satisfaction. If I or my friends need a lawyer, I would be more than glad to recommend Karen Persis.
I first contacted Karen regarding my foreclosure case in July 2013. My wife and I were receiving mountains of paperwork from our Lender and it was quite worrisome. Should we move? Should we stay? What to do? Karen met with us, in person, for over 2 hours and was able to provide us not only with piece of mind, but with a gameplan for how to handle the case. Not only did we leave that meeting feeling as though we had a fighter in our corner, but even more important, that we had someone working for us who was accessible and knowledgeable. My wife's opinion was particularly important, and I could within minutes of our first meeting that she was at ease in Karen's hands. I have recommended Karen to other friends experiencing this same mess, and they have likewise been pleased with Karen's assistance. Ultimately, my wife and I were able to obtain a loan modification and resolve the foreclosure lawsuit as a result of Karen’s help. I would HIGHLY recommend Karen Persis; of the 2 lawyers I've worked with in the past on other matters, Karen was by far the most knowledgeable and helpful.
Karen has helped me so much with my surrogacy contract. She answered every question I had and if she didn't know the answer off the top of her head she contacted my IP's Lawyer to get me the answer. She is easy to talk to, easy to get ahold of on the phone and through email and makes you feel comfortable. I appreciate all that she has done for me throughout this journey and will continue to use her knowledge!! I will definitely hire her again!! Plan to have her as my lawyer if I do another surrogacy contract in the future!!
I called Karen out of desperation back in June '13. I was having an impossible time finding an attorney to take care of my contract for surrogacy. I had been given a few names for fertility attorneys by my agency but no one would call me back and not for my lack of trying. Karen returned my initial phone call quickly and just hours before she was leaving for vacation. What was nice is SHE called me personally, not an assistant or secretary. We got going with everything as soon as she got back from vacation and even though the hold up was on the IP's attorneys side she kept in contact with me keeping me updated the whole time. She walked me through the whole precess, we went over the contracts together and we made changes to ensure I was getting all of my wishes met, everything went so smoothly. Because fertility is a passion of hers, she made my case a priority since the contract was the only thing holding up the IVF process. I can't say enough good things about Karen. With any luck I'll get to use her for my next surrogacy as well.
Living in Europe and trying to engage an attorney by telephone was proving very difficult. However when we contacted Karen she seemed very trustworthy and made us feel at ease. She explained our case to us in laymans terms and made us feel very confident of her services. Karen assisted with a foreclosure and got us the outcome that we wanted , swiftly and professionally. Karen kept us updated and informed at every step. We would highly recommend her as an honest, trustworthy and caring attorney.
After 2 years of the run around, Karen stepped in and got my foreclosure resolved with all aspects settled in my favor. I would recommend her to anyone.
