After interviewing a number of lawyers, I was able to eventually find Kara -- unlike others, she didn't make ridiculous promises just to get my business (e.g. that he could get my deficiency case dismissed because the banks were "bad" or that the debt collector didn't deserve to get the deficiency on the back-end because the banks made money on the front end.) There are a number of lawyers out there wasting their clients' money, getting the court to *temporarily* get cases dismissed because of procedural items or formalities. Anyway, Kara was the exception -- she was realistic, honest, and seemed to have a good relationship with the opposing counsel that ultimately allowed us to come to a favorable settlement.
We had a very unique situation. Balloon payments were called on 2 lot loans we owned in Florida. Of course values had dropped 90%. Neither place had contacted us for over 3.5 years after they demanded the balloons. One loan had been sold 4 times to different servicers, the other one had been sold 7 times. We were finally contacted by one of the places. We enlisted Kara after interviewing 3 other lawyers. We were very nervous and unsure of ourselves and how to handle this mess. Her quick action and superb negotiating skills got both of the lots done in less than 6 months and for much less, both in terms of cash to close and fees than we expected. She kept us informed all the way along and gave very timely and correct advice, even though we were 2nd guessing everything. She was steady and firm with us which was just what we needed. In the end I couldn't be happier we hired her and would strongly recommend her to anyone.
If you are having a real property related legal issue, I recommend you hire Kara Jursinski as soon as possible. She is extremely knowledgable, responsive and always professional. Her team was also very helpful with resolving my legal problem; Kathy Valentine is a gem! They were a wonderful legal team and made me feel comfortable with a very unpleasant short sale situation. I recommend Kara Jursinski without hesitation and would hire her again if I ever need to resolve a legal problem regarding a real estate matter.
As a small business owner and real estate broker for a career of over 35 years I have never been as impressed by an attorney more than I am with Kara M. Jursinski. She listened very carefully to the matter and was able to identify a resolution with a clear concise plan, direct actions and goal oriented objectives . I was able to focus on my business instead of the business of calling my attorney. Ms. Jursinski has a budgetary conscientiousness which was proved when I was surprised with a balance of retainer refund check in the mail. She is someone who is building for the long term relationship and not only the transaction. I highly recommend Kara M. Jurinski and there is no doubt I have finally found my attorney.
Kara and her team kept me well informed throughout the process of my case. Kara was able to help me settle my second mortgage which let me keep my house from going into foreclose.
My wife and I needed legal counsel for a real estate matter and required specific guidance and advise to guide us through the matter with the best possible outcome. We read an article in the local newspaper about the law firm of Kevin Jursinski and set up an appointment for consultation. After meeting with Kara Jursinski we knew that her expertise, experience, and perseverance would fit our needs to resolve our real estate matter. With-in 3-4 months we had a resolution that was the best outcome, and driven by Kara to all parties satisfaction. We would highly recommend her and her services.
Her guidance through the process was outstanding and attention to details, as well as keeping us informed through-out the process.
We are very pleased with the outcome and would use Kara again in legal matters and the people she recommend to her clients.
Kara and the entire office staff were such a pleasure to do business with. Kara is so knowledgeable
and easy to work with. I put all my trust in her and she did not let me down. I would recommend her without so much as a 2nd thought
Although the foreclosure process was extremely stressful, Attorney Jursinski made the process go very smoothly. She was very professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs help. She was very aggressive with the bank and got my situation handled promptly.
Kara negotiated my DIL with the bank on a home with Chinese Drywall. The matter was closed in my favor and saved my family from significant additional hardship. She is very attentive, diligent and knowledgeable. I would give her my highest recommendation.
I recently hired Kara to assist with several issues regarding the foreclosure of my Mother's home. I will highly recommend her in the future. What impressed me the most about her was not her knowledge of law and the proceedings, which she obviously understood, but it is the compassion that she showed me right from the beginning regarding our situation. I'm not sure she realized the impact that had on me. It is a quality that can not be learned in school, so I give kudos to her family! I can only imagine how proud of her they must be.
