  • Randi Susan Klein

    What can you say about perfection? Diane Karpman lives up to her well deserved and hard earned reputation. She is THE GO TO PERSON for lawyers who have been contacted, rightly or wrongly, by the State bar of California. She knows her stuff and will competently and zealously defend her clients. I have always enjoyed the courses she gives on ethics. I am not alone. If you read the review of other lawyers attending her courses, they generally give her five stars. She imparts the information, keeps everyone's attention, and makes the class fun. I look forward to taking another one of her series. She also has a great column in the state bar newspaper. I used to save her articles. She is THE BEST!!!
