About Karen

Learn Karen’s areas of practice.

I offer experience, good strategies and sound legal advice and I help my clients make intelligent decisions that are in their best interest.  My office phone is my cell phone so you can usually reach me when you need me, and I return phone calls and emails promptly.  

I am a UCLA graduate and I earned my law degree at McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento.  I finished my last year of law school at Loyola Marymount in Downtown Los Angeles where I had the privilege of working for the Honorable Earl Johnson, Jr. at the California Appellate Court, Second district through an externship. 

After passing the bar, I took time off to raise two kids.  I have been practicing family law exclusively since 2010.  Initially I worked for law firms in Beverly Hills and Woodland Hills before starting my own practice in Ventura. 

In my free time you may find me working on my garden, walking the dog, exercising, surfing the internet, or enjoying Malcolm in the Middle or House of Cards.

Exceptional Legal Expertise & Compassionate Guidance
I recently had the opportunity to have a free consultation with Karen regarding my family law situation. In just 30 minutes, Karen provided me with more useful information than I had received from my current attorney in the past 7 months. From the moment our conversation began, Karen took the time to actively listen to every detail of my family law case. Unlike my previous encounters, where I often felt rushed and unheard, Karen's attentive approach immediately put me at ease. She showed genuine interest in understanding the complexities of my highly contested divorce and restraining order situation. What truly impressed me was Karen's depth of knowledge on various aspects of family law. She effortlessly navigated through the intricacies of my case, offering insightful perspectives and practical advice every step of the way. It was evident that she had a thorough understanding of the legal landscape and was well-equipped to handle even the most challenging scenarios. But beyond her expertise, it was Karen's genuine empathy and compassion that truly set her apart. She understood the emotional toll that such legal battles can take on individuals and families, and she approached our discussion with a level of sensitivity that was truly refreshing. In just 30 minutes, Karen not only provided me with invaluable guidance but also instilled in me a newfound sense of confidence and reassurance. I left our consultation feeling empowered and equipped to navigate the complexities of my case with clarity and purpose. If you're seeking a knowledgeable, compassionate, and dedicated attorney who will truly prioritize your needs, I highly recommend reaching out to Karen. Her commitment to her clients is evident from the moment you speak with her, and I have no doubt that she will go above and beyond to achieve the best possible outcome for you. Thank you, Karen, for your exceptional service and unwavering support. You have undoubtedly made a lasting impact on our journey towards resolution.

Karen is nice & very prompt.. I consulted Karen & eventually hired her to represent She really took the time to keep me informed and kept things moving .. Although i had a deadline to have my MSA done since my respondent was moving out of the country Karen made sure that all that is done in time and she got it all done keeping me informed at every step of the process.. I will recommend Karen to anyone going through this very tough life changing episode in their life .. She is compassionate , caring & very reasonable! Thank you Karen .. Glad i found you when i was really worried ..

Termination of Alimony on a long term marriage.
Karen was great at negotiating a settlement for terminating alimony in this difficult and complex case with an opposing counsel, who was often less than cooperative. She worked long hours into the night researching cases and returning emails at times after midnight. She is definitely an attorney with integrity and the utmost of professionalism. During the process, Karen's sound advice was very much appreciated, as it kept us on track toward the ultimate goal. I would highly recommend her for any family law cases. Thanks, Karen, for all your hard work and due diligence and God Bless!
