I was in a lose lose situation with a ferocious ex and his lawyer. Without her, my family would have endured a terrible injustice, as only she had the best interest of my children in mind. She also referred me and the children to amazing counseling services that has helped us heal from the harrassment.
The best attorney I've ever used
Through a very long and painful divorce/custody fight, I've employed three different attorneys. Two for my divorce case and Karma for my custody fight.
I can easily say...with no hesitation...that I WISH I'd have found Karma earlier. Had she been my divorce attorney, I wouldn't have had to go through the custody fight!!
She is a quick study of the situation and can get the lay of the land down easily. She "gets" the idiosyncrasies of dealing with both the crazy ex, the crazy ex's attorney AND the court.
After being told by my 2nd divorce attorney that I'd "NEVER" get full custody of my kids, I wasted two additional years of my life watching them be put through hell with their father. When I decided to try again, Karma said she couldn't believe the ex had any custody (he had a DV conviction and the guardian ad litem recommended only supervised visits) and we'd do all we could to get it done right. And she did.
She is worth every penny of her fee. You will not be sorry if you hire Karma Zaike.
I hired Karma after a terrible experience with another attorney who did nothing and could barely remember my name. I felt lucky to get into her practice as she wasn't available earlier in the case. Karma got up to speed on my matter within 1 hour and has been very fair on billing. She and her staff are warm, caring and efficient. She has been a strong advocate, always has a sound strategy and was viewed as collaborative and fair during mediation. Her firm is the kind of firm other lawyers retain as they have a stellar reputation as strong advisors and respected counsel. I would hire her again in a heart beat and feel lucky to have her on my and my son's side.
Knew almost everything right off, but didn't hesitate to research and dig up cites when needed. Wrote one killer brief, in particular, in very short order. Very well considered, good advice, chose good approaches to difficult issues, minimizing time and effort while maximizing results. In general billings very reasonable, given that she is...a lawyer. ;-) Also very pleasant to work with. Only marked her down a little cause when I worked with her she had young children, wasn't working full time so I sometimes had to wait a day (maybe two on one occasion?) for a response.
I have worked with several lawyers over the years and Karma is by far the best. She is professional, caring (imagine that!), smart, articulate and a good person. She is obviously respected by her peers and courtroom personnel. Absolutely no regrets hiring this woman.
I use this attorney for my family case ,she always returns my phone calls.she is very proffesional and generous.She is vey patient with me due to the difficult time i have speaking english. Most lawyers i've dealt with have been greedy for $$ only, when the case ends up being the same result anyway, Not with this lawyer.She is the best, i would recommend her to anyone in need of a good family lawyer!! P.S. She knows how to handle herself in the court room.
