    • I do not recommend Karin Dedona.
    • I hired Karin 1-3 years ago.
    • Karin handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I used Karin as my attorney for a divorce involving children and I can honestly say it was the biggest mistake I've ever made. Not only did she charge me a fortune, but her job of representing me was very poorly done. She grossly overcharges for her services (i.e 30 minutes billed for a 2 minute phone call) and does the bare minimum of what is legally required of her. In my final divorce decree I was raked through the coals even though my ex-husband doesn't pay his child support, was ARRESTED for driving drunk with our children cross-country, and was threatening/abusive for the duration of our marriage and thereafter. Everything that I was "awarded" in the divorce has been seized by the federal government or is irrelevant. Given the amount Karin charges for her attorney fees I 'assumed' she would be knowledgeable on Washington laws. After paying for her services I am worse off than before I started this whole process. I would never recommend Karin Dedona to anyone.

      This is a client who did not pay for the excellent service she received, and lashed out with blame when asked to pay her bill.

    I used Karin for a very difficult legal seperation then divorce. She was amazing. Karin kept me informed at all times and she was very straight forward. Hopefully, I never have to experience divorce again but if I did, Karin would be the only attorney I would use. Thank you, Karin for everything.

    Karin was absolutely amazing. She defended me in a custody case with the father of my child. He claimed integration.. Karin did an amazing job at putting the case together, keeping me completly informed and was a shining star in the court room! The case was appealed and she took the floor again, the entire courtroom was in awe of how she handled things up there! She my x's attorney litterally shaking! She is very honest about cost, and tries to save your money as much as possible! When it comes to your children, a parent needs to know they have the best defending their family.. Karin is more than you can ask for!!
