Trust and Realestate
I had a problem with an Estate Trust and Real Estate. Karen was VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE on both issues and she and her staff were extremely efficient in solving both issues in a very timely manner. In the past she has reviewed my trust and made very excellent and thoughtful changes. I highly recommend her.

Incorporation Services
I recently consulted with and ultimately hired Karen to incorporate my real-estate investment business. Thru the process Karen ensured all my questions and concerns were addressed, provided me with continuous feedback, most importantly made me feel like I was more than just another client. All in all I was exceedingly pleased with the entire process and how quickly she was able to push the paperwork thru at the State level. I highly recommend Karen if you are looking for a top-notch professional with the customer service skills to boot to handle your business incorporation. Jermaine

Ttile is fine
My husband and I had to fill out our wills, durable power of attorneys, and advance directives. I had heard Karen speak at a meeting at my company, and I was very impressed with how she made the presentation and in the way she answered questions from the audience. I knew she was the lawyer for us. I saved her information for a couple of years (procrastinating!), but we finally got up our nerve to go see her - what a pleasant experience she made of filling out the papers that we thought would be really hard! Karen was very thorough and made sure we understood each part of the documents. Her office and staff were also tip-top. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing her services. We appreciate the time Karen spent with us.

Estate Planning
We had no idea what to expect as we prepared our will, our questions and concerns were taken care of by Karen. Karen is a professional and she made our meetings very friendly and not intimidating. The documents she prepared seem very thorough and well written and we believe will guide our family members with our wishes in the future. She was quick to respond with the initial first phone/email. We've wanted to do this for quite sometime and glad I was referred to Karen to complete the process.

Great Experience
My wife and I were very pleased with the service that we received from Ms. Alegi. Not only was she friendly and professional, she offered to come to our home to discuss the documents we were considering (Wills, Living Wills and Power of Attorneys). After discussing our particulars with her, we chose to proceed with these documents, which in turn she e-mailed us drafts for review and made the changes we requested (twice) within a very reasonable time frame. Once everything was to our satisfaction, she once again came to our home for the final review and signing of all the documents as well as brought a witness with her. A few days later, we had the "final" documents in our possession.

A Top-Notch Discovery
Stumbling upon Karen was one of the best accidents to have occurred in my life. She was extremely patient and understanding as my divorce lawyer, even with English being my second language. She's 100% up-to-date and knows the law very well. Not knowing how the divorce process worked, Karen explained everything in a very clear timeline and prepared me for what was to come and explained to me what my rights were. Karen is wonderfully friendly and totally professional. I would recommend this superb lawyer to anyone who is going through a divorce/separation.

Excellent representation
Karen is a great listener. After meeting with 4 different attorneys, I chose Karen because she was the most realistic. The other attorneys made statements that made it clear to me they didn't understand my case because they didn't listen to the details, and were only interested in 'cashing in'. Karen took in all the information and gave me the best recommendations for moving forward. Her advice and representation was worth much more than I ended up paying her.

I'd highly recommend Karen for any of your Family Law needs
Karen Hulme-Alegi has provided estate planning services for me. She was knowledgeable and responsive to my particular needs. The overall estate planning was made easy, and Karen took her time to thoroughly answer all my questions. In addition to estate planning, Karen has advised me on child custody matters. When working with her, I’m most impressed by her strong ethics and overall interest in providing me with the best service possible. I recommend Karen Hulme-Alegi to all my friends and family who need a Family Law attorney.
