Dealing with legal issues can be scary, especially if they impact your livelihood. Many years ago, I had problems with my employer and knew they were breaking the law. I felt scared and powerless to do anything for quite some time. When I no longer had any option but to fight back (I lost my job), I luckily happened upon Bohbot & Riles' web site.
Karine Bohbot aggressively pursued the matter and resolved it successfully. She was accessible, clearly spelled out my options, and was extremely patient with my many questions along the way. I could not have been more pleased with the results.
Over the years, I have asked her advice on other legal matters and if she cannot help me directly, she recommends someone who can. She almost always responds to my e-mails the same day--even after I was no longer her client.
I wholeheartedly recommend Bohbot & Riles LLP to guide you through the legal process. Great results, very professional with that extra personal touch.
After more than 20 years of service to an organization that I had helped found, my employment was suddenly terminated with not even as much as a severance package. While she represented me in an extremely difficult employment discrimination case, Karine stepped in to become more than my attorney—she also became my confidant and friend. She made herself available to me whenever I needed to speak with her—which was often, she kept me informed throughout the process, and even allowed me to be present during the opposing party’s deposition. While we did not “win” a huge judgment, Karine obtained the best settlement possible. I am grateful for her amazing knowledge of the law, her ability to hammer out a settlement where there might have been none, her integrity, her compassion, and her great good humor. Karine is awesome, and I recommend her highly. You rock, Karine!
Karine is an awesome person all around. I have known her for several years now and other than having a fiery passion for justice and doing what is right, she is a loving mother, active community servant, and a dedicated professional. It never ceases to amaze me how many details she remembers despite the number of clients she has, and how she keeps herself in tip top health to assure that she is always functioning at peak for her clients. I have worked with many attorneys in the past and I believe Karine can get more things done in one hour than some other attorneys can accomplish in 4-6 hours.
Several years ago, I was a named defendant in a lawsuit filed by a vendor who was owed over $60K. The owners of the court reporting office that I managed said they would have their attorney contact me and assured me not to worry, that it would get handled. But I did worry, because over the previous year, I had observed their lack of response to important issues and was not surprised the lawsuit had been filed.
I had observed Karine as I had walked past the conference room during several depositions that were held in my office and had been impressed with her passionate advocacy of her clients. Outside the depo room, she was friendly and funny.
After two weeks of waiting for a call from my company's counsel, I called Karine and asked her to represent me. She kept me informed throughout the process, and I was present during the plaintiff's deposition. Despite the stress inherent in a deposition setting, it was actually fun to watch her brilliance in action! Shortly after that, the plaintiff agreed to drop all charges against me and the matter was dismissed with prejudice. I did not pay a penny.
In short, Karine Bohbot is a pistol! She gets the job done, and exceptionally well. She is astute, thorough, and efficient. She knows the law like the back of her hand and is a fierce advocate for her clients, while maintaining her humanity and compassion. I pity all opposing counsel, for they will have a fight on their hands, all the way through trial!
Karine filed wrongful termination litigation for me several years ago. I found her brilliant, honest and very motivated. Her service exceeded all expectation and before long a settlement had been reached in mediation. I strongly endorse Karine and Bohbot & Riles.
Karine has been my lawyer for over 10 years now and I couldn't ask for a better lawyer to have represent me in my business and personal life when I need legal help. She has been so good to me, my family and friends who have also used her services in the past and present. Karine represented me in an employment case years ago and was able to get a great settlement for me in the case. In addition she has represented me in businesses issues over past 9 years which has alleviated a lot of stress and allowed me to grow my business without worrying about legal matters. I can trust she will take care of the issues without me having to call her and sends me reminders throughout the year. Dedication and Determination to her clients are her strongest attributes. I am truly grateful for her legal expertise and recommend to anyone who reads this to use her services. You wont be disappointed.
Karine is sweet, honest and caring but a pitbull when she needs to be. She can keep up with my million mile an hour brain and is always, always on top of things. Her skill-set also includes stripping away all the bull to get to the core issue very quickly. This saves time, money and stress for all parties involved. Karine has handled a myriad of legal items for me from Employee Handbooks to IRS communications to mediations, all with ease and always in a timely manner (usually within a few days). For a small business, all of these attributes make her invaluable for us. We often need things quickly and we don't have thousands of dollars to spend. Awesome. Hire her.
I've been a registered process server for over 10 years and have worked for and interacted with hundreds of attorneys. I had an employment issue and it looked like it was not going in my favor and along comes Mrs. Bohot who I owe a great deal of thanks gratitude for resolving my case to my satisfaction. She's a top notch attorney!!!!
We had the pleasure of having Karine represent us during a very difficult time following our car accident which resulted in a full on trial 2 years later. Without her advice, guidance, and support throughout the entire process, I do think we would have been victims of unfair justice. I could not be more thankful for having her on our side. I admire her most for her professionalism, organization, and stern candidness... she is one relentless Attorney and knows her stuff!
It was evident throughout the process that she was 100% on our side without a question, and that alone gave us the confidence to go through the entire process, as there were many moments of weakness and vulnerability.
I would highly, highly recommend her!
