I have had need of legal representation on several occasions, throughout the past 20 years. I absolutely adore and cherish Karen for her ability, professionalism and unparalleled counsel!! She is by far the best attorney I have seen during my multiple trips to the courtroom. If you need help....do yourself a favor and hire her.

Unfortunately I had to have legal representation, The good news is I hired Karen. Extremely knowledgeable and kept me informed from start to finish. Her prices are extremely reasonable and she attacked my case with her whole heart. She truly gave more than 100% on my case. Karen made the best out of the worst situation. She was very honest and down to earth. As a military member Karen worked hard to keep my career intact. My case was very complex and Karen took the time to make sense of it all. Thank You Karen! You are the Real Deal.

I did the phone calls and consults for you. Hire Karen she is the best in the business. We had no idea where to start when our son got into serious trouble. I made several calls and did several consults. I found AVVO, read her reviews and called Karen's office. She was in court that day but called me from her car as soon as she was free. She did not sugar coat the fact that this was a serious case and never gave us false hope. We met with her the next day and immediately knew we were in good hands. It was clear she is passionate about what she does and loves her job. Karen did not waste a minute getting to work on our case. She always returned my calls, emails and answered any questions we had. She is the perfect combination of tough and caring a seasoned professional. Just let her do her job and don't question her strategy. She has years of experience and is highly respected by her peers. She got my son a deal that is unheard of. We love her!!! We will be forever grateful to Karen. She was a true blessing.

Karen is the consumate professional. She has superb negotiation skills with the correct balance of sweetness to get the a client the best deal possible but also has the ability to sting when the other side is being unreasonable. Her legal knowledge is second to none and her reputation as a tough trial lawyer is well deserved. Her committment to her clients is at the highlest level, she leaves no stone unturned and her attention to detail is something every trial lawyer strives to match. I offer my highest endorsement for Ms. Lockhart, you will not find a finer advocate anywhere.
