Karen assisted me with in a contested divorce. From the day I engaged her, she came across as a very knowledgeable attorney who had her facts straight. I went through a very lengthy, unrealistic demanding, expensive divorce and Karen was always present to guide and provide assistance to see the process smoothly. She was available when you needed to speak to her (even on weekends) and provided sound advice that I was able to take. She was very diligent in her work, never gave a feeling that she was trying to extract money out of me by dragging the case and wanted to bring the case to closure as amicably and smoothly as possible. She assisted me in Child Support and custody negotiations which helped me gain custody of my son. I would highly recommend Karen for someone who is going through a bad divorce process. her personality is very welcoming and you will feel connected to her the moment you speak to her. Thanks Karen for assisting me with my case.

Mrs Saminski and Miss O'Neil are wonderful people and outstanding lawyers. I retained their services for a child support case and the outcome was outstanding due to their extreme knowledge of the family court laws. I am extremely satisfied and happy that I chose them to represent me and would definitely hire them again. I highly recommend them to anyone needing a lawyer in their field!!

I have hired Ms. Saminski twice for a child support case. The experience, knowledge and professionalism from Karen and her staff was stellar. Both times I made out with better than expected results, both in my favor. Her staff was on top of everything, very knowledgeable and made clear what I was to expect. I felt very comfortable, everyone on her team was patient and took the time to make sure I understood and was comfortable with the next steps in the process. Thank you Karen, Bill and team for your professionalism and help. I can’t say enough of happy I am with her services that I have hired her again to handle other services.

I endorse this lawyer. I endorse Karen as I can attest to the fact that she is a great attorney. She is an excellent mediator and litigator. She is professional and cares about her clients. Karen has the ability to understand clients and their goals along with thinking outside the box which is not a quality most attorneys have these days. She has dedicated over 20 years of her career to Family Law and any client would be lucky to have her by their side.
