Karyn was great to work with. She quickly had an understanding of a fairly unconventional situation, laid out the plan, and then executed on it.
She was quick to get documents turned around and to talk to me about different financial scenarios, and clearly articulated the economic impacts.
Very happy to work with her and while I hope I don't have to for a divorce ever again, I would hire her again!

I was looking for an attorney to work through a difficult situation fairly while at the same time protecting mine and my children's interest. Karen was that attorney. She represented my children's interests very well. She is organized, intelligent and thorough. If it's important for you to have a lawyer who is the smartest person in the room and who will make sure the difficult divorce process is handled fairly and professionally, I would highly recommend Ms. Youso.

Karyn was able to jump right into my case on short notice and provide excellent representation. She was always available and responsive via email and phone. She addressed all of my concerns to make sure I was protected from the intricacies of my situation. During high emotional times, she was able to provide a sense of calmness. I appreciated her candidness as we worked through adversarial issues to keep moving forward to come to an agreeable outcome.
I would highly recommend Karyn.

I endorse this lawyer. Karyn is a gifted attorney. She is always fully prepared and has absolute command of the necessary facts and history of the case. She strongly believes that negotiated resolutions that are mutually beneficial to all sides are not only possible, but preferable. Thus she seeks out solutions rather than conflict. Karyn is highly regarded and highly recommended.
