I would like to highly recommend Juliann K. Karenko, PA.
In the past three years, Juliann demonstrated her tenacity, dedication and unequivocal ethics in handling my case; exemplary of a seasoned attorney. She guided me through legalities with transparency, compassion and resolve easing a very tumultuous season in my life. We are very thankful to you, Juliann, for all your help and dedication!
I became a client of Karenko Law Firm to seek legal support in January 2014. Throughout the legal process of my divorce, Ms. Karenko not only walked me through the day to day procedures and provided me with weekly up-dates, but also gave me the confidence that having The Karenko Law Firm’s winning team at my corner would safeguard my future.
Ms. Karenko and her team did not just process my family dispute, from the very first day, I was treated as a member of their own family and they ran extra million miles to make sure their client is legally protected.
Her Team, especially well educated and professional Ms. Kay Schnake, provided me with accurate legal advice during the past 12 months. They supported me to make sure that I made the right decisions.
Ms. Karenko and her team have proven themselves to be exceptionally dependable when it comes to serving their clients. I highly recommend them, feeling they would be an outstanding asset to anybody seeking legal assistance.
Please feel free to contact me with your questions.
Juliann is handling my divorce and subsequent legal hearings, motions, etc. She has been excellent in all aspects. Her professionalism, determination and dedication to my case have been beyond reproach. When I was looking for a lawyer she came highly recommended and has not disappointed. Whether in the courtroom or outside of it, she has worked diligently to ensure I was represented at the utmost level. Her recommendations for vocational evaluation, and other professionals have been crucial to the case. I would recommend her to anyone.
My divorce was a complicated case with two teenagers, an ex-wife that wanted to relocate in a different country, refusing to work full time and asking for alimony and child support. My lawyer guided me all along the 20 months process and as a result I am a happy divorced man with my children staying here and half of the time with me. My ex hired three different lawyers meanwhile. I strongly recommend Juliann if you want to divorce and keep your sanity!
I was referred to Julian Karenko and had total attention from her and Elizabeth Fleites (Legal Assistant) during my legal consultation. They gave me total confidence on myself and on my case.
We worked together throughout the whole process and in every single step.
All the best for them.
We did a phone consultation she quoted me her fees and her retainer of $5000. I initially felt good about Mrs. Karenko even though she was not as clear as my current attorney about her strategy in my multi jurisdictional child custody case. In literally 5 days she sent me an email advising her retainer had gone from $5000 to $20,000 needless to say I did not proceed Mrs. Kareno.
This lawyer represented my brother in a custody dispute and he received sole custody of his daughter. He was 100% satisfied! She fights for her clients; she cares about her clients. Any questions we had were always timely responded to. I would absolutely recommend this attorney to anyone!
Ms. Karenko is an outstanding lawyer. I had a very difficult and complex divorce and she was wonderful. She is caring and has an excellent reputation with other lawyers and Judges. I cannot imagine why anyone would suggest she is considered a "hack". She has exactly the opposite reputation in the community. Some people are never happy with their lawyers because they do not cooperate with them or tell the truth.
I was going through a nasty child custody/support case. Juliann was a lifesaver when I was going through this stressful time. She told me what my legal options were and we went over what my priorities were. What I truly appreciated was that she was upfront with me and told me the way it was and fought hard for me. I wouldn't hesitate in hiring her again if need be nor recommending her. You can't go wrong.
This attorney has no interest in solving your divorce until she has spent your life earnings.
She is more interested in using your financial disclosure to determine how much gain she can expect. She intentionally uses hostile tactics to get both parties agitated, so she can prolong the process for her personal gain. Stay away, even her peers call her a hack.
