Looking for a lawyer? Check out my story.
During a nasty child custody lawsuit with my ex-husband, I faced one of the scariest and most difficult times of my life. I am a single mom, entrepreneur, and co-creator of Rythmia Life Advancement Center with a busy schedule that left little room for me to be able to handle the work, time, and emotional drain of a lawsuit. I have worked with lawyers in the past who required a lot of help and attention because they were disorganized and more interested in making money than resolving the conflict as efficiently as possible. Karie Boyd was a breath of fresh air after my not-so-positive experience with lawyers in the past. She cared so much about my situation and went above and beyond what I hired her to do so that she could make sure that I not only won, but that I also saved time and money. Karie has very high integrity, as well as, one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. (These are not words you normally use to describe lawyers!) Karie’s firm, Boyd Law, was highly professional, detailed, organized, experienced, and worked together brilliantly as a team to win a very difficult and complex case that I had been working on for over four years. Thanks to the help of Karie and her team at Boyd Law, my son and I are free from this nightmare, and we can now begin to heal and move forward with our lives. Karie has such a wide range of cases and expertise, that I recommend her for both business and personal matters. I promise you are in great hands with Karie Boyd and her team at Boyd Law.

If you want results, hire Karie Boyd
Ms. Boyd took on my case near trial. I did not have confidence in my prior attorney and after consulting with Ms. Boyd I hired her on the spot. Ms. Boyd was professional, very prepared, and confident. I felt like I was in good hands. Her staff and team are very efficient and compassionate. Ms. Boyd settled my matter prior to the trial and I walked away with a better deal than i could have expected. She was confident in her position and knew when to push the other side. I highly recommend hiring her.

Boyd Law is Awesome
I never thought I would need to find a Family Law Firm, after almost 31 years that suddenly changed. I do not believe I could have found a better group than Boyd Law to represent me and my interests. Everyone is so young yet so intelligent, very ethical as well as very caring and detail oriented. From Century City to Irvine and San Diego everyone on staff that I encountered worked pleasantly with me to get me more than I ever expected. They helped me even more by allowing me to make payments that did not put a strain on my fixed income. When my husband and I reconciled they were very happy for us. It was also a first for Matt Cadwell to have a client reconcile and he was thrilled for us. Boyd Law started out as my representation and ended up feeling more like friends. Even staying in touch after everything was finished just to see how things are going for me and making sure I am doing well. I do not believe anyone could find a better Family Law Firm than Boyd Law.

Karie Boyd is an Amazing Divorce Attorney
I hired Karie Boyd to help me with my divorce and custody case. It was the worst time in my life and I needed an attorney who would stand up for me in court and help me understand the process. She was compassionate with me. I felt listed to. Her mild manner with me was so helpful and when I saw her in court, I witnessed Karie become assertive, matter of fact, and aggressive. I watched how she handled my husband on the stand and was able to show that he was dishonest. My case was in good hands and her staff is incredible. I would recommend Karie Boyd to anyone I know going through a difficult process.

Are you looking for an ally in the litigation process? Look no further.
In so far as legal advice and professionalism are concerned, Karie Boyd excels at both. Finding an attorney that is both competent and relatable is no easy task. When a coworker of mine (whom Mrs. Boyd had represented) recommended her to me and touted her proficiency in all things law, I decided to call her for a consult. Immediately following our first face-to face, I knew that I had entrusted the right person. From the onset, I felt at ease and understood – she was truly my advocate from the very beginning. Having never worked with an attorney before, I had a lot of questions and misunderstandings as they related to the court process. She made it a point to make certain that I not only understood what was happening, but that I didn’t have any questions. Every question I raised was answered directly and without hesitation. Every matter that required her assistance, she addressed. Without going into specifics (as this is a public forum!), certain life events can really debilitate you, make you feel helpless and out of your element, at least this was the case for me. Having someone see to it that your best interest is satisfied when you’re really not in a place to do it for yourself is immeasurable. I strongly urge anyone that is seeking legal council to contact Mrs. Boyd. You will be relieved that you did!

Thanks Karie. Job well done!
In transitioning the experience of an everchanging world, I seek professionals not only for their experience, but also their ability to understand my personal situation. Karie J. Boyd is one such professional. I require someone who will listen to my questions and provide answers in words I understand. Karie J. Boyd is that someone. My circumstances required respect for the loss of my son along with genuine caring and compassion while assisting me in putting his affairs in order. In an untimely death, knowledge of real estate law, family law and probate law is often required. Karie J. Boyd was my expert in all areas. More than once, Karie went the extra mile and was always there for me above and beyond our client/lawyer relationship. It is my pleasure to recommend Karie J. Boyd as a very qualified attorney who can handle your unique situation. Call now.

If I could give it 0 stars, I would.
Watch out! I hired Karie Boyd and never even saw or met her. She had one of her Jr. Associates assist in my complicated case. Well after 25,000 K dollars later, I discovered she had been ripping me off and fired her immediately. I attempted to contact her on many occasions and she would not give me the time of day. Remember I hired her. I finally spoke to her and she said I had 10 minutes. Yep, 10 minutes. That was a hell of an expensive 10 minutes. Anyhow, She over charged me over and over again and even after i brought it to the many office managers, because of the over turn, none of them would listen or do anything about it. She charged me 185 dollars an hour for $125 an hour contract. She charged me 25 dollars for 1 copy and sometimes 15 cents. She double billed me for phone calls and " letters" and would not consult with the associate she gave me to give him correct information and law about my specific case. Well I filed for arbitration. Funny thing was after fighting with her for over a year about my over charges and would do nothing, When i go to arbitration she gave me a credit. Not nearly the credit I was seeking so i went on with the arbitration and am waiting for the outcome now. She is rude and thinks she is so knowledgeable and thinks her time with worth way more than mine. Don't hire her!!!!!!!!
