  • Tyler Powell Garretson

    I swore off divorce work nearly ten years ago but got sucked into a case several years ago through a related criminal defense matter in Franklin County. I met Kari for the first time in that case as she was representing the opposing party (the one without the related criminal issues). Kari reminded me why I quit divorce work. She was tireless, a tremendous advocate for her client, and had the respect of the Court and staff where we were litigating the case. I didn't have much to work with in that case and she did a damn fine job reminding me of that fact. We were still able to reach a fair resolution but not before she made sure I was aware who was coming from a position of strength. Excellent attorney.
