"I had the privilege attending Albany Law School with Karen. Because of our last names and the alphabetical seating assignments, I sat next to her in many classes. Karen is very smart and has a great personality. She was a nurse before she became an attorney and she developed her excellent people skills before she attended law school. The lessons she learned as a nurse helped her excel in law school and she has used these to become one of the most successful and well respected members of our class."
