Karl Hand....A Great Attorney
Karl Hand is a wonderful attorney. I have the utmost respect for him. I had 100% confidence in his ability to represent me during my divorce in 2014. Divorce can be stressful, and Karl Hand made my divorce manageable by always guiding me with excellent advice and always considering my best interests. Karl is extremely professional, knowledgeable, caring and attentive. Karl's communication and dedication to my case, along with his hard working staff, made my divorce go smoothly and quickly. Whether a divorce or any other situation, I would most definitely and highly recommend Karl Hand.

Attorney Hand Review
Attorney Hand has done a phenomenal job in representing me during my divorce. What I was looking for in an attorney to represent me was someone who was knowledgeable, Professional, and Trustworthy. Karl has exceeded my expectations in each of those areas. I was also looking for someone that would communicate with me whenever I had a question or needed more information. In fact, I recall needing Karl's advice on something that I considered to be a crisis during a weekend. I emailed Karl on a Saturday afternoon, and no later than 10 minutes I got a response! I highly recommend Attorney Hand. I put my trust in his work and he exceeded my expectations each and every time.

Thank you Karl
I was very overwhelmed after my son’s accident and didn’t know which way to turn. Karl Hand was available to answer questions and always bring me up-to-date with this case. He is very helpful, supportive, knowledgeable, and professional in handling my son’s case. I’m very satisfied for all that he has done and I enjoy working with Karl. I would highly recommend this law firm.

He is Horrible
He is a horrible in dealing with a Divorce issues. He did absolutely nothing but take my money. He purposely chose not to anything because he believes the courts are one sided when dealing with divorce and custody issues. He actually admitted that to me. I found out he lied about several things. Now my child is suffering because of it. I would advise anyone to run from this guy.

Response from Karl Hand December 3, 2019
I am sorry that you feel this way about my legal services. This is not a typical response from one of my clients. I strive to provide the highest quality service possible, and client satisfaction is a high priority for me. If the rating comment is from an actual client, then you should contact me to discuss your concerns. I am very accessible and would be happy to talk to you.
