Excellent Attorney - Divorce
Karen Munzer is an honest lawyer and she did not miss a beat. She answered my calls & e-mails in a very timely manner & she kept me in the loop with all going on regarding my case. She is also extremely compassionate. She helped me get the best outcome possible without dragging it on. Highly recommend.

An extraordinary Attorney
First of all, I want to start this by saying that Munzer was extremely professional lawyer. Is a lawyer who inspires trust and knows her work to a minimum detail. Definitely I recommend her for any family-related matter. Mrs. Munzer shows a charisma by the client as very few lawyers have. Thanks attorney Munzer for the very positive results obtained in my case.

Got Results Fast
My Ex wouldn't let me see my son. Ms. Munzer got me time with my son and got my child support lowered. I tried to do it myself but this court system is so confusing and impossible for most to get results. My Ex's attorney was out to get me. Ms. Munzer saved me, and now I am able to be a Father. If you need help with child custody and child support, have this attorney help you.

Great Representation for Child custody and child support
She is hard working and will get the best result for you. You do not want to come up against her in court. She is honest and will give you great representation at a fair price. She helped me get time with my son and reduced my child support payments. I recommend her highly.

compassionate counselor and advocate
I went through a difficult divorce. This attorney helped me understand the process and get through a very emotional time. She was able to get my Ex to mediate with me so we avoided long, and expensive litigation. I enthusiastically recommend her.
