Charged me thousands for what should have been simple case then told me I would have to hire financial witnesses at a cost of up 50 grand .if I wanted to go to court. When I asked why I needed these fanacial witnesses when I had already had paid her $14000? All she would say is do you want to win? She didn't tell me what would be gained. Numerous times I asked her to let my X's attorney do their work and she said do you want it done right and on time ? Yes, then I will do it So basically I paid for my x's legal work. She did things like call the cops to check on x welfare and charge me. She never investigated or pushed the x to give full diclosure disputes my requests. I could go on but the biggest indicator of her ethics should be when I said Ii didn't think I should pay her $6000 as she had many errors in my case which now I have to hire another attorney to see if I can correct , I told Her I wasnt going to give her a good review either since she wouldn't listen to my requests. So what did the ethical attorney Karen Kugler do? She sent me a link about a person getting sued because they wrote a bad review. She is taking me to court and added $1000 more to my case-- 21000. . Over half year of my salary plus I owe $65000 to x because she never pursued the x marital wasting and gambling. My friends and family asked me "who is she working for-certainly not you"

Karen is extremely knowledgeable in family law. In my court case the referee stated that her written argument enlighten him to on the issue. She is well respected by the court. She is understanding to the flaws of the system and will not tell you what you want to hear, she will give you the facts and not sugar coat it.
She is honest and fair. I have had dealings with family law attorneys and Karen clearly sets the bar high for her peers.

Karen Kugler is the best attorney that I could have. I would say I was so lucky that I met her years ago. I met her at the place that she volunteered. When I first met her, my divorce case was over but settled in an absolute unfair settlement. My case was truly not an easy case to work with. However, step by stepâ€¦and finally, Karen successfully helped me to resolve all unfortunate problems.
Karen is not only a good attorney; she is also a beautiful in-heart person.

I met Karen professionally about a decade ago and have come to known her very well. Karen is the type of person you can open up to and she is very understanding which is important in family law. She also really, really understands the law and the process. Very solid attorney.
