5.0 stars 22 totalReview Athina Karamanlis Powers
Prior to my conversation with Athina Powers, I had never heard of her, in fact even before our call I didn't review her profile as I elected to allow AVVO to auto connect me with an attorney based on the nature of my situation in which case you're provided with the attorney's profile after the call.
My phone rang less than 5 minutes after I paid the AVVO fee... and shortly there after I realized I was speaking to an attorney who was clearly extremely capable.
Athina listened to everything I had to say and then responded with the kind of confidence that can't be faked. Not only was she able to very clearly addressed the finer points of my concerns (which I thought I hadn't done a very good job explaining to her in the first place), but she didn't miss a thing, and then went on to point out a few possibilities that I hadn't occurred to me as viable options (and this is a testament to her intelligence considering the caliber of people who had previously been assisting me with my legal concerns).
She brought a rare balance of knowing when to emphasize important points of my situation while simultaneously bringing a very appropriate sort of levity and humor to the conversation that not only provided me with a sense of empowerment but also an overwhelming feeling that I'm going to make it out of this situation and can do with flying colors.
A few minutes after we finished our call I got follow up email from AVVO asking me to rate my experience with Athina. Her profile was attached to the email which was impressive to say the least and certainly came as no surprise as my experience was the type you have when you're dealing with the Real McCoy.
By the way I have never responded to these sort of follow up "rating request" emails only because in the past they've seemed like a complete waist of time .. but Athina and my experience with AVVO is a horse of a different color and was so impressed that I wanted to share my experience and opinion with others who might need some reassurance in making a decision. Amazing !

I highly recommend this attorney for any divorce or family relating issues. I was hopping back and forth between lawyers saying one thing and lawyers saying another. After having gone through abut 3-4 different attorneys, I thought I might as well go for one more and I'm glad I did. She did everything I needed and at a fraction of the costs the other attorneys requested.

Athina Powers saved my family from being forced out on the street. Very trustworthy individual and I'll always look to her first in the future.

You will KNOW you are in the best hands with Athina Powers. She is brilliant, experienced, knows all aspects of the law for my case, argued effectively for 4 hours. In a different league than other lawyers I have worked with. Truly gifted and a gift.
