I am a criminal defense lawyer in Los Angeles, Riverside and Orange Counties. I was a public defender in Riverside and Orange Counties and conducted numerous jury trials. I have also conducted and won numerous hearings on Motions to Suppress Evidence, Motions In-Limine, Probation Violation Hearings and many others. I worked with prosecutors to get great deals for my clients.
While working for the Riverside Public Defender's Office, I worked in Juvenile Delinquency Court. I represented juveniles who were accused of misdemeanor and felony crimes and conducted numerous trials in Delinquency Court.
I also practice Dependency Law, also known as Juvenile Law. I represent parents, guardians and caretakers who are being investigated for abuse or neglect of a child in their care. If DCFS is investigating, please call me. In addition, relative caregivers need to pursue adoption or guardianship in many cases which could avoid Dependency Court altogether. My goal is to keep the family together or put the child with relatives and get services to help you reunite with your family.

There are givers and takers and Karen is a giver. 17 years of experience with five as a public defender, a judges clerk and a great deal of indigent representation all point to her giving persuasion. She continues that through her pro bono contributions here. Her knowledge of both the law and procedure is excellent. Client reviews are stellar. READ THEM! Do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation.
