  • Shannon Richards

    Karin and I work together in the Napa legal community. We have had many cases together, both as adversaries and as collaborative counsel. We have similar styles -- trying always to settle cases if possible. Both Karin and I are concerned with the needs of the child/ren in the cases we handle. Karin is competent, professional and courteous. I would not hesitate to refer clients to Karin if I am unavailable. She's not only a top notch attorney, she is a top notch person.
