TOP NOTCH
Brian and his team are simply the best. The level of integrity, compassion, knowledge, experience, and professionalism they offered was tremendous. I could not have been happier with the outcome of my case and I owe it all to them.

Best family law firm!
It was such a pleasure working with and being represented by this law firm. They made the process extremely efficient and smooth and I felt very confident in the representation by each attorney I worked with as well as the paralegal. I am so grateful that I was referred to them and highly recommend them without question!

Helpful, Authentic, and Honest
Taking the first steps in the divorce process isn’t easy. Not only do you not know where to turn, but life is still moving around you. Brian’s information was provided to me by a friend, who stressed her would give me solid guidance. They were correct. Brian not only answered all the questions I had, Brian also provided me with useful information towards my situation. With Brian’s expertise, professionalism, and genuine care for his clients, you are in great hands.

Reliable
I came to this law firm with a very difficult case. The team was very knowledgeable, understanding and most importantly they spoke Cleary to me, and were very frank and open. They were able to find a solution for my divorce litigation in months after I had almost two years of battle in. very nasty litigation. I would highly recommend Brian Karpf and Andy Wilson for any Divorce Litigation matters.

Outstanding team of lawyers!
I was initially referred to Brian, who was wonderful, but then I mostly worked with Andy Wilson, who was outstanding, as was the rest of the team! Their turnaround time for responses and products was lightning fast, even over holidays and weekends. They understood all the nuances of the law, which for me was key given some of the complexities of my case. I interacted with multiple other lawyers during this process and none of them compared to YBKK. I highly recommend their services - they are worth every penny!

Great Investment!
Brian is a great listener and compassionate person with a fantastic team behind him. Not only is he a very knowledgeable family law attorney, but has the emotional intelligence to get to a quick resolution for his clients. He is a trusted advisor and provides various options and alternative scenarios that also makes him an out of the box thinker. It is an art to be able to be both amicable with the mediator and opposing counsel to push the case far along, since he is very likeable, and also to buckle down and to not take no for an answer when needed. In addition, Brian is an expert on The Hague Convention and worked with my attorneys in other jurisdictions to ensure that I had additional protection while reducing risk. I will definitely hire him again for any future matter and refer him to friends and family when the need arises.

When you need a Pitbull that is kind!
There are not enough stars to click on. Attorneys are supposed to be held to a higher standard and I can honestly comment that Brian Karpf operates in a trusted advisor capacity raising the bar far beyond any attorney in his family law field. I can tell you from direct knowledge that Brian positions himself in a confidant manner with the utmost respect and strategic mindset when working with his clients. We completed an extremely complicated Real Estate transaction where Brian maintained an open but calculated thought wave that ultimately created best case scenarios for all parties that were involved. Solid character and absolute joy to work with. I would refer any family law issue to Brian with zero hesitation. Never in my wildest dreams would I have consider a family law attorney actual family....... Brian is like a big brother watching out for my best interests! JK

Brian M. Karpf
I highly recommend Brian M. Karpf if you are in need of a lawyer to help you navigate the divorce process. I knew from my first visit to the YBKG office that I was in good hands. Brian M. Karpf was professional, compassionate, and straight forward in our discussions about my divorce case. He offered valuable advice for me at a time when I was emotionally distraught. I took his advice and it led to a favorable outcome in my case. During the divorce proceedings, Brian M. Karpf and each YBKG team member communicated with me by phone and email effectively and in a timely manner. I appreciated their dedication to my case and willingness to go the extra mile while answering in detail a multitude of questions related to each stage of the divorce process. I was very fortunate to have Brian M. Karpf looking out for my well-being during a difficult season in my life.

A true friend and ally
Brian and his firm were very experienced and prepared during this VERY difficult time. My ex was relentless, had 4 different attorneys in 3 counties, and felt she had "nothing to lose" litigating. Brian and Mitch protected my interests (most importantly my kids!) and guided me through 3 mediations, a court trial and an unsuccessful appeal. YBKG was well worth the investment! Today my kids have grown into happy and healthy teens and life has moved on. Could not have done it without BK!

Divorce Case
Brian was great from beginning to end, he was always on top of the case and answered questions and concerns immediately. I felt like I was treated like an actual human being rather than just another folder on the desk. I highly recommend Brian, he is very knowledgeable in family law and always has plan.

Excellent in international custody law
Mr. Karpf was excellent in my Hague custody case (international law). He was honest in his pricing and cognizant in ways I could keep costs down. He responded quickly to all questions and really delved into every avenue of the case that could be beneficial. He was straightforward and gave me an honest assessment as to the likelihood of winning the case. He was incredibly detailed and organized in his preparation of documents. He also took me into consideration as a person and even went so far as to make sure there was always a good distance between me and my ex with him in between. Overall it was expensive but definitely worth it. Excellent in international custody law. Excellent in working with female clients. Excellent in prudent billing. Can not recommend him highly enough.

Personable, Knowledgeable and Professional
If you're looking for an attorney that is knowledgeable, professional, and down-to-earth, Brian is your guy. He takes care of you like you are family. The family law legal process is complicated, but with Brian, we felt comfortable and informed. Although he is a very busy guy, he was always available to us and responded quickly.

Thank You Brian M Karpf
Mr. Karpf is a very professional lawyer who helped me through a very difficult case. He always answered my phone calls and kept me informed. Mr. Karpf gave me good advice and always provided options. I was very happy with the outcome. If I need a family lawyer in the future I will definitely use him again.

Attorney Brian Karpf
I would absolutely recommend Mr. Brian Karpf. What I truly appreciated about him was that he did not take anything at face value. When I had my first interview with him, he tested my credibility and the veracity of my statements prior to truly getting involved with my case. Once involved, he was responsive, proactive and kept me informed of all possibilities and all options that were available to me. He provided great advice and handled my case to my complete satisfaction. Every step of the way, he gave me options and recommendations on what to do. If I felt that a different course of action was appropriate, he would remind me of the pros and cons, costs vs benefits, and would always respond that he would do whatever it was that I wanted to do. Exceptional assistance. Thank you!
