  • James Winston Spertus

    Karina Sterman is an extraordinary attorney. She is smart as a whip, but has skills that cannot be taught in law school such as judgment and compassion. You cannot teach someone judgment or compassion; they either have those qualities or they don't, but qualities like that lead to effective, cost-effective lawyering when it matters most. Karina would be my first choice for labor counsel, whether at trial or during consulting needs. She is extraordinary in every way.

  • Jane Beaumont Hall

    I sent clients to Karina where there were clear employer violations and the business owner was panicking about the actions of one of the executives. Karina was able to handle the situation with wisdom and superb legal solutions. You cannot ask for more than that. My clients were very pleased with the result.
