I had been going through a very contentious, ugly divorce for quite some time, with a lawyer I didn't feel 100% sure about, before hiring Karl. He was highly recommended to me. Despite fears of the unknown (which we all have heading into a trial), Karl was able to calm my nerves, and instill confidence in me enough to trust him with this most important aspect of my life and future. I couldn't be more thankful that I did! When other lawyers had told me that what I was looking for was impossible - Karl pulled off with ease. Through expertly questioning the opposing witnesses, he was able to shred every one of their credibilities. He took evidence opposing council submitted and was able to use it to not only weaken their argument, but to boost and corroborate our case! I never thought the day would come where I felt happy with this ending (a divorce); content? Maybe. But happy? No. I do now though! All cases you can't expect miracles... but I know if I ever have any legal needs in the future--- I know where I'm going.

My son was falsely accused of a sex crime, after hiring an attorney we thought could help we were clearly proven wrong. So our search for a good knowledgeable attorney became our focus. We by the grace of God was directed to attorney Mr. Karl Numinen. When he made his first call to us he spend a good hour getting details of case and speaking to us on his own time. Mr. Numinen also scheduled an appointment in his office with us in which we were able to discuss further in detail the charges being brought upon my son and brought in proof of some facts we had in regards to our defense, which also was free of costs, he explained to us about retaining him and it was agreed he would take on this very difficult case that had already been going on for 6 months. Mr. Numinen came in later in this case which is difficult to begin with and was always willing to speak and consult with us whenever we had questions or concerns. Mr. Numinen is extremely knowledgeable about the laws and he will speak the truth. We finally had our day in court and Mr. Numinen I can't explain in words what a wonderful job he did in the honest defense of my son!!!! He got up in court and did his job and beyond and honestly my son could have been facing 3 to 15 years unfairly however but Mr. Numinen brought the facts out that involved a very serious situation and did what no other attorney could have done. Mr. Karl Numinen got my son JUSTICE!!!!!!!! Mr. Numinen had a wonderful demeanor about him, he is very calm and he knows what he is doing!!!!! If you are looking for an attorney to help you fight and get the justice you deserve look no farther than Mr. Karl Numinen, I promise you, he will fight and get you the justice you deserve the very best that he can!!!!!

I felt like Karl took my case seriously and helped in every way possible. He was down to earth and recognized my need for confidentiality and all charges are now dismissed. He went the extra mile and I would go to Karl with any legal needs!

My experience (and my entire family's experience) with Karl Numinen and his associate Jana Mathieu was exceptional. I was facing serious criminal charges, but was put at ease immediately when I hired Karl as my attorney. I chose him because he came highly recommended and he is well respected in the community. He and Jana have the excellent legal skills, knowledge, demeanor, etc. Both Karl and Jana were there for me and my family walking us through every aspect and giving us reassurance. My wife was very grateful for Jana and her kind words. I don't know what I would have done without them at that devastating painful and scary time of my life. Karl and Jana were able to zealously defend me and I was acquitted of all charges. Thank you Karl and Jana from all of us - we are forever grateful!

Karl Numinen is no typical lawyer. He's down to earth, easy to talk too, and not judgmental. Although I had the truth on my side it seemed in my situation that a lie would be easier to believe than the truth. Karl Numinen helped bring the truth out and eased my anxiety of a horrible situation I had no control over. I had lost everything and was wrongly accused; my whole world was falling down around me. Dealing with personal tragedy on top of the often intimidating judicial process left me overwhelmed, but Karl not only helped me become comfortable with the confusing procedures that accompany a lawsuit, but also helped restore my confidence in myself which allowed me to be ready for my day in court. When I came to Karl Numinen I had what seemed to be an impossible mountain to climb. He guided me to the top in style, and before I knew it I was sitting with the best view in the house. Thanks to Karl Numinen I have my life back. He is a man of great integrity, steadfast, and trustworthy. I will forever owe him for saving me. Thank you Karl Numinen.

Needless to say, Karl has been there for me since the first day I walked into his office on Meeske Avenue in Marquette, MI for a sit down consultation regarding the issue I was dealing with. The issue was a criminal matter, drunk and disorderly/resisting arrest to be exact. Due to the circumstances, I knew I needed a reliable and competent attorney in order to help me with the situation. Karl went above and beyond, and due to his hard work, compassion, and pure skill, the prosecutor granted a complete dismissal of all charges in my favor just months later! I was ecstatic when he called to inform me of the news! The whole time I was promptly kept up to date with what was going on, not only through Karl, but also his wonderful staff and another attorney at Pence & Numinen named Keith DeForge, who I would also recommend to anyone searching legal advice or counsel! After the criminal charges were dismissed completely, the decision was made to press charges for a violation of my civil rights, due to the circumstances. Karl represented me again in this matter, working long hours to make sure the best outcome possible could be achieved. At the end of the day, an agreement was reached by both parties that was fair and reasonable for myself and for Karl. Without him and his team, I don't think things would have went the way they did. So, if you need an attorney you can rely on, one who will be there for you, Karl Numinen has and will always have my support and confidence. Thank you, Karl, for everything!

Karl was an excellent lawyer. He was well prepared for court and had done his research well in advance. I was always able to get ahold of him. He was there any time I had a question . He made sure everything I wanted to happen happened in court. I had no worries going into court with him being my lawyer. He was very flexible with scheduling to meet me seeing as I live 15 hours away. He took time to actually get to know me . He definitely isn't just a lawyer who wants to get paid. He wants what's best for you . I would most definitely suggest him to anyone seeking a lawyer.

My experience with Karl Numinen was exceptional. During a divorce your whole life is turned upside down and choosing a attorney can be overwhelming.
I choose him because he was highly recommended and well respected in the community . Minutes into our first meeting I knew I made to right choice. He immediately made me feel comfortable and at ease which was important since I would be revealing highly personal information about myself and my marriage.
He has the legal skills and knowledge that got the results in my favor. He works well with others which was obvious by the way court staff members treated him and even how the attorney for my husband treated him. He was respected and well liked by all.
Something that really impressed me was how comfortable he was at court . He was familiar with the judge and courtroom style . This stressful situation ended in my favor.
A few years later I unfortunately was facing health care fraud charges and thought my career and life was over. Not only did he prevent me from being charged I didnt have my professional license affected in any way. He was again exceptional...well known and well connected also fierce and effective.
This painful case went on for years. Both Karl and his amazing assistant Anne were there for me walking me through every aspect and giving me reassurance. I don't know what I would have done without them at that devastating painful time of my life.
I have moved out of the area years ago but will be forever grateful to Karl and Anne.
