Awesomeness!
Karen Eichman is caring, approachable, accountable, and awesomeness all rolled into one. I was in a networking group with her for 3 years. She was easy to work with and whenever you asked her to do something, she did it. I had several cases that I asked her to do, and it only took one phone call for both cases to be straightened out. I'm not sure what she said, but when Karen speaks.....they listen.

Karen Elizabeth Eichman
I met Karen Eichman while attending a professional business organization. Her qualities of patience, responsiveness, and clear articulation were immediately observed. Combine these positive qualities with her extensive knowledge of employment law and it is a recipe for competence. I’ve worked with dozens of lawyers in my life time and I think it’s rear to find a trustworthy attorney that actually has my best interests at heart. Karen Eichman is such an attorney. You’ll be well advised to have her as your legal counsel.

Administrative Assistant
After 5 years of having all paper work done I could not get my divorce through with the lawyer I had. Ms. Eichman's specialty is NOT divorce, but took my case, we had one court appearence and I was granted my divorce. Later to find out that the court had filed some of the paper work incorrectly and Karen took the time to notice this and corrected on her own.

I can easily recommend Karen Eichman
I have known Karen for over four years. I was fortunate to work with her. And, because of her willingess to share her knowledge, I was able to learn a great deal. She is one of the most detail oriented people I know, and leaves no stone unturned until she knows she has it all covered.

The Lawyer Who Always Gives
Karen came to me at a time when I really needed strong legal counsel in handling my divorce. She was very informal and also asked me discovering questions in which she was able to use in completing the case in an extremely timely manner. She guided me through the process and gave me the utmost confidence in her Abilities. She is a very personable and always made me feel as though I could ask her anything in accordance to the case. When my ex-wife tried to be difficult in a few areas, Karen did not give up. Instead she did additional research when needed to, using the law to navigate me through to the end of the case. She is extremely hardworking and I never had to wonder whether or not she could complete the job. Her character exudes professionalism and I am more than fortunate to call her my lawyer. I've been divorced for just about 11 months and if it wasn't for Karen, I don't know if anyone else would have taken the patience to achieve what she did for me. Whatever legal need I may have in the future, I will always choose Karen.
