About me

Karen M. Billingham began practicing law 20 years ago, working with and being mentored by Gary L. Schappaugh, one of the most accomplished family law attorneys in this area. While working with various firms over the years, she kept a close practice relationship with Mr. Schappaugh and Family Law. If Mr. Schappaugh had a large case she would assist him in extensive research, discovery, depositions, mediations and / or serving as Guardian Ad Litem. Ms. Billingham has tried cases by jury and non-jury and has a vast knowledge of creative strategy within the law. Once she decided to open her own law office, she elected to limit herself to Family Law to better serve her clients in what can be an emotional life transition.


She has represented clients, through settlement or trial as the case demands, in all areas of Family Law – divorce, custody, protective orders, domestic violence, visitation, child support, paternity, and adoption.
