I was getting married for the first time but living with my fiancé for many years. He suggested a pre-nuptial agreement. I heard of Ms. Svendsen, called her and she worked a miracle. Her extensive experience in marital law and personal manner not only made the whole experience as pleasant as it could be, but the outcome for me was better than I could have ever expected. She spent the time getting to know me and my future expectations. She is fair and honest and I would highly recommend her to anyone with out any hesitation.

I recommend Karen Svendsen as an expert in Family Law and exceptionally talented lawyer without reservation. After almost a year of little to no progress in my case for child support, a very astute friend of my gave me Karen Svendsen's phone number. She had skillfully brought my friend's divorce case to an optimal conclusion. My prior lawyer didn't prepare or guide me, and actually put my case in jeopardy due to their lack of experience. Karen Svendsen was attentive and helpful from our first conversation. In our first meeting, within 15 minutes she had not only mastered the facts of my case but very easily pointed out extremely advantageous holes and significant intricasies specifically beneficial to my case. She fought on my behalf from the beginning until the very end. Because of her superb skill in negotiating, her understanding of the court and the depth of her experience she was able to reach an advantageous settlement for me. Achieving a settlement has allowed my ex husband and I to go forward with a calmness and decency towards one another which never would have been possible had we gone to trip and both testified. Karen Svendsen's professional, experienced, compassionate & honest demeanor gave me a feeling of calm in what was one of the more difficult years of my life. I am eternally grateful to her.
