I can only say good things about Karen. Not only did she work tirelessly to win my expungement but did so with compassion and kindness. Make no mistake though, she is a pit bull in court and has an exceptional knowledge of the law. I will never be able to thank her enough for helping me to set aside my conviction and giving me the chance at a new life. I recommend her to anyone.

Ms. Mockrin is very passionate about her work and the Constitution. She makes sure everyone gets the rights they legally deserve. She is an advocate in many organizations. Additionally, Ms. Mockrin, is very empathetic and she listens to, you, the client. Excellent in court, always well prepared for her case to be represented in the utmost professional way. She is well organized and precise on her arguments she presents in court. What is more impressive, Ms. Mockrin went up against the Oregon state Supreme court, she had 10 attorneys she had to represent her case to. Also, Ms. Mockrin won her case in the Supreme court and changed a law. Ms. Mockrin, does her research on each case as she had with mine. In doing so, it gives Mockrin insights and she is focused to detail in the law or what other case files she can consult to when presenting you in court. I was impressed with her work on my case, in how she returned my calls in a timely matter and how she spoke professionally in an appropriate and proper way. I was always treated with respect and dignity. I highly recommend Ms. Mockrin as an attorney who will listen to you and you won't feel judge or dismissed. Thank you Ms. Mockrin for defending me and our precious Constitution.

I have only glowing praise for Karen Mockrin (and her partners at
Bodzin Donnelly Mockrin & Slavin), and much thanks for all of her assistance, before, during, and even after my hearing, by coming to visit. I am amazed she did the great job that she did, considering that I could barely function due to the stress of possibly being incarcerated looming overhead. I'd been left out to dry one to many times by court appointed attorneys,in the past, and I am so grateful that I somehow, as if by divine direction, found Karen Mockrin on AVVO and made the call. I truly believe it was the difference between years of further incarceration, versus the 30 days in county jail , no further probation, and 250 hours of community service that had been court ordered prior, wiped away, which is exactly what happened!
Karen literally saved my life, and I am so thankful for her dedication, combined with her ability to see things from many perspectives and change up the game plan, if necessary. Her honesty, knowledge, and confidence, together with her tenacity and covering every potential pitfall , makes her a dynamo in court. I had no problem in just trusting that she was in my best interest, and to heed her advice, as it was always spot-on!
After my hearing, many of the other defendants that had been in the courtroom with me earlier commented on how great of a lawyer she was. Originally, I wasn't going to say this because I did not want it to be taken the wrong way, or out of context, but think I should let it be known. One of the guys kept saying, "Your Lawyer? She is a beast, bro! She tears it up in the courtroom! Did you see that poor DA? She looked scared, bro. Like she wanted to cry, bro!" I swear, his words as I remember them, not mine. And, he kept saying it loudly, over and over. He also asked for her name and said that she would be his 'go to' attorney, if he ever needed representation again, and unfortunately, it looked as if he probably would need much legal counseling in the future. He was very impressed, and he was not alone.
You really have to see her in a courtroom, in action, to appreciate her skill and manner. Right now, I am a 100% free man, sitting here typing this, sipping some tea, petting my cat whose sleeping and snuggled in my lap, and ready to start my new business; my new life, really. And, I do not think for a moment that it would have been possible without the care, guidance, and attention that Karen Mockrin gave to my case. It was worth every penny, and then some. In fact, it is hard to put a price on the freedom she helped me to achieve. Thank you, Ms. Mockrin, from the bottom of my heart. You will always be in my prayers and I am glad you are who you are, doing what you do! You are truly a guardian angel to those in need! I hope I do not require your services again in the future, but if I do, you will be the only one I call, or recommend. If you see this review, Karen, thanks again, to both you, and your partners. You've given me my freedom back, and it tastes delicious. ;)

She and her team were EXTREMELY helpful in every aspect of my son's case. They persued all avenues applicable, and worked hard for him. They were assigned his case as Public Defenders, and did an AWESOME job!!! I highly recommend Karen Mockrin and her team of Bodzin Donnelly Mockrin & Slavin, LLP.!

Karen Mockrin is, in my biased opinion, the most knowledgeable, helpful and intelligent criminal defense attorney I have dealt with. She will do whatever she can to help you, and knows the 'tricks-of-trade'.

To feel a need for an attorney, can feel somewhat overwhelming. It's been wonderful, when I think about meeting Karen, she is a bright, intelligent, respectful & honest person. Karen spoke to me like an equal & she gave me the best possible legal advice.
Karen also spoke from her heart & through her brilliant mind, I very much appreciated her attention & her kindness two years ago, when we met & again even more so, this previous week.
Karen & I spoke & she again was remarkably superb. I mentioned 'brilliant' Karen is brilliant, one can tell that she cares & is there with you, with focused mind..
Every experience with Karen has been professional & very smart, two years later she remembered the important details of my case.
She makes me happy, to know that in this world, which at times can be or appear to be tough, Karen exists here with us & for us. It is a wonderful feeling, sensation & realization of the good things & good people in life.
I most highly recommend Karen J Mockrin & certainly with her success, earns trust in attorneys of her Law Firm Bodzin Donnelly Mockrin & Slavin LLP
Thank You Karen

Karen provided me with the most matter-of-fact and detailed information; response to my inquiry was very quick. She's non-judgemental and easy to converse with. She is now on my speed dial and I will be contacting her for assistance, in the future, wiht any concerns that may arise, in her realm of practice!
You will not be disappointed - contact her! Thank you - Karen!

Karen is an excellent attorney. She has helped me through hardship fighting my battles with a case that got overturned through the Supreme Court. She won the law for jury trials for Oregon for defendants like me. I highly recommend her. She is a very friendly, trustworthy person. She earns every high ranking and more. She has been fighting for me for years! She is awesome and I would refer her to anyone in need of fighting the system. Trials, cases, hearings, anything! Anyone in need!
