Karyne is amazing! I hired Karyne about 3 years ago when I was in need of legal representation against my former employer. She came highly recommended by a mutual friend and she gained my trust instantly. Karyne is incredibly knowledgeable, aggressive and professional. She was successful in getting my lawsuit dropped within 90 days and I was able to move on and conduct business as usual. Without Karyne's guidance and help, my business wouldn't be as successful as it is today. If you are looking for great representation, hire Karyne. She's worth every penny.

I used Ms. Ghantous for a dispute with a former employer that was quickly and efficiently resolved to my satisfaction. I subsequently referred her to 3-4 other business owners who engaged her for her services. Each business owner was equally pleaseed with Ms. Ghantous' results. Based on the results of her work relative to my situation and based on the feedback from the people I have referred to Ms. Ghantous, I believe she is an excellent choice for corporate disputes.

Karyne was recommended to me by a good friend. I had never used an attorney before and was hesitant as to what to expect. Karyne was great about explaining the process and making me feel comfortable about what to expect each step of the way. She fought hard to get what I deserved, going above and beyond expectations. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney. She was fair and honest in regards to fees and I would hands down recommend Karyne to anyone who is in need of legal assistance. She is outstanding!

Karyne is an extremely savvy and effective attorney who gets results for her clients. She is very straightforward with clients when advising them on the pros and cons of their cases, and conducts herself with the utmost professionalism. I would never hesitate to refer clients to her.
