Karen is not only smart, shrewd and strategically positions her clients to achieve the best results, but she provides the most important gift of all — compassion. Because of Karen’s experience, strong working relationships and reputation within the family law community, she is able to efficiently and effectively deliver first-class results for her clients. But, what truly sets her apart is the time that she devotes to nurturing her clients which is simply unmatched. Many of her clients are emotionally distraught when they first contact her, but by the time, they hang up the phone or meet her in person, they feel that they are in good hands. Even after Karen wraps up the legal issues for a client, Karen goes the extra mile guiding them on the road to recovery. My fellow attorneys and I always joke with our spouses that if anything were to ever happen in our marriages, we have already retained Karen to represent us!
