I was arrested outside a nightclub in Riverside, Ca for getting into an altercation with a couple of drunks. Even though there were plenty of witnesses outside the club that gave statements to the police that I was only defending myself, I was still arrested and had to arrange bail. I was charged with criminal felony assault. She was recommended to me by a friend who used her services. I thought that she was very direct and pro defense, she told me that I had a great case but was honest about the possibilities of the outcome. She handled my case with the utmost professionalism and I never felt like she was "not with it". With the help of a great investigator Karen was amazing. The DA kept offering a deal which I wasn't interested in and neither was she. We went half way through the trial when the judge granted her motion to dismiss due to lack of evidence. The investigator found several witnesses on my behalf and thank God the judge ruled in my favor.
I would highly recommend her. Personally I hope I never have to see her again professionally. She was amazing.
Thank you again Karen,
Karen handled my bankruptcy case quickly, efficiently, and very discretely. She answered all my questions right away, and she made me feel so much better about my future. Karen is very knowledgeable and makes you feel very comfortable. Karen Lockhart is top notch!
Karen Lockhart is a professional attorney who fights for her clients. Her skills as a trial lawyer are beyond reproach. Karen is such a great attorney that I would not hesitate to refer her to a family member or friend. I have been fortunate enough to work with her on several cases and and always amazed at her dedication and skills!
I was very nervous hiring an attorney. I have never been in trouble before and I suddenly found myself charged with two felony offenses. I talked to a lot of attorneys before settling on Ms. Lockhart. She always returned my calls. She kept me informed of the progress of my case, took the time to explain the technicalities that I didn't understand, and ultimately got the charges reduced to a single misdemeanor charge.
Ms. Lockhart did and an outstanding job for my friend. Not only legally but I witnessed her compassion and concern for his well being. He is truly sorry and I know how deeply this has affected him. I am thankful for her integrity and care for my friend’s best interest.
Karen is the most honest and capable lawyer I've ever worked with. She had thorough knowledge of all facets of the law surrounding my case. I was always very confident in her ability to defend my case. She was able to dismiss / throw out much of the evidence that was being used against me. I truly had confidence that thanks to her work I had a really good shot at beating the case. However, in the end we decided to go for a plea deal. Originally facing a sentence of nine years, Karen was able to work a plea deal and get it reduced down to 16 months. Her price was reasonable and she never misrepresented the true circumstances of the case. She was always honest in providing likely scenarios given the situation we were in. She even went above and beyond her duties by helping me petition for a Certificate of Rehabilitation. I would highly recommend her.
Karen Lockhart represented my son who was facing life in prison. He was found not guilty at a jury trial and came home!
My son got into some trouble and I researched 10 criminal lawyers and interviewed 6. After talking to Karen we decided she was the most experienced, kmowledgable and caring of the group. She helped put a plan together, guided us through the process and delivered on everything she said. In addition she knew many of the DA's finding the one in charge of my son's case. In the end she was able to get his case moved from 3 felony charges to 1 infraction.
If you are looking for a good Christian lawyer that will work hard and give you straight talk Karen Lockhart is the one.
