    I endorse this lawyer. I have know and worked with Kara for 14 years. I have had the opportunity to work with her on both a professional and a personal level. I have referred clients to Kara on many occassions because of the vast knowledge and experience she has in the tax law area. With her ability to "thnk outside the box" she has been able to assist my clients when others could not. I highly endorse and recommend Kara.
