After a friend referred me to hire Ann Karpenski to represent me for my divorce, I read the reviews and did my research. My now ex wife is also an Attorney so I needed a Top Gun, not just another divorce Attorney. The entire process was very stressful for me--the thought of court, battling at trial, the waiting periods, etc. It's not easy putting your future life in someone's hands and at the mercy of the court.
Enter Ann. She was very professional, knowledgeable, and put me at ease during the toughest times. The stress became so high at times, i found myself out of line. Ann understood and continued to do her job. She made me feel very comfortable; like a great mom taking care of her kids.
For those of you doing your research to find an Attorney for an upcoming divorce, don't bother, I've already did that for weeks. Ann is the one to choose.

Howard brought Ann into my divorce case from hell which dragged on over several years. And I am so very glad to have had Ann stand by me during this time. Ann was very attentive to my needs and what I wanted to happen with my case. Ann offered invaluable advice, took meticulous notes during our meetings and saved me from myself during trial.
Ann brought a unique female perspective.
An example, Ann told me not to cross my arms in court as that suggested defensive body language and might be picked up by the judge.
Ann dealt with opposing counsel's unreasonable tactics respectfully, successfully and tactfully.
Ann also help negotiated the term of the settlement agreement paying attention to those devils of the details.

From the moment that I met Attorney Breau-Karpenski, I was put at ease. I though that I had a very difficult and emotional case, yet Ann did not hesitate and immediately inspired my confidence in myself and in her. I was unsure of myself and confused as to what the best actions were for me to take and Ann made me feel confident and comfortable through out the entire process. She explained every step to me, and was always encouraging and supportive. She inspired me to ask for and she got exactly what I needed and deserved. She and everyone in her office worked tirelessly on my case and are a great team. I honestly do not think that I would be in the positive financial or emotion position I am without her efforts. I can not recommend her highly enough.
