Karen didn't have it easy with my case. We had a lot of challenges with the opposition. Karen was patient and dedicated throughout the process and helped get us to the long awaited finish line. This was not easy and she was always a great resource and an empathetic supporter through the journey. She was there to strategize on the best way to come to the most optimal outcome, always thinking several steps ahead and planning out the best approach for the case. She's dedicated, honest, and a true expert in her field.
I contacted Karen almost immediately after getting separated to help me through the divorce process and close my case. What struck me the most about Karen, was how empathetic she was; it was such a relief. When it came down to business, phone calls and emails were always promptly returned and she was able to break down the mountains of paperwork and explain everything in a way that I could understand. She really made the whole process as easy as she could for me, and was a huge asset to have in my corner. I don't know what I would have done without her.
Entering into my divorce I was very concerned about the expense I would incur, but Karen worked efficiently so we could come to an amicable and expedited result. I always felt that she was my advocate during the divorce process, I felt that all of her guidance had my best interests in mind. I find her to be both honest and compassionate.
Karen is what every attorney should strive to be...professional, diligent, compassionate and empathetic, not to mention extremely talented at what she does. Karen helped me with a complicated and messy divorce recently and I cannot speak highly enough of her. I would recommend her to anyone.
I was depressed while dealing with the long process of the divorce case. Karen calmly and patiently guided me to face my chanllenges until the case finalized. Because of Karen, I am able to live a comfortable life financially after the divorce. I can not thank Karen enough for everything she has done for me.
Later, I referred a friend who needed legal advise before she filed for divorce to see Karen. My friend said that to meet with Karen was the best thing happened to her at the time.
Karen helped with my divorce, including custody issues, spousal and child support, meeting with the mediator, filing all kinds of paperwork, valuation for my business, and just moral support. She is personable, always available to talk or email, and I trust her completely. Karen has been working with her father (and elsewhere) in family law for years and has immeasurable experience and personal contacts as a result. I would highly recommend her!
Karen came across as a very sharp lawyer right from the beginning. In my preliminary consultation, as I explained my case, she was quick to point out specific provisions from Family Code that would hugely reduce my liability towards community property. I found this to be very impressive.
This being my first encounter with anything legal, I was very anxious about everything and used to ask several nitty-gritty and sometimes silly questions. But Karen was quite patient and understanding. Frankly, I was also worried about the fees, wondering if I would be billed the right number of hours. I found Karen to be reasonable and professional in that regard. During the course of handling my case, she was proactive and prompt in her communication, both with me and the other lawyer. She responded to my email and returned my phone calls immediately. My case was relatively straightforward and was settled, but Karen did a great job maintaining the pressure on the other party to get things done quickly.
I hope no one gets into any unfortunate legal circumstances, but if you do, I recommend Karen as a lawyer.
