I met With Karen October 31, 2014 and I came away from that meeting knowing I was dealing with a true professional. I was assigned a "homework packet" and Karen personally reviewed with me every page of the 60-page document. As a former para-legal I could see her office is run like a well-oiled machine. Karen and her staff gave me personal attention and I came away with a clear idea of the bankruptcy process.

After dealing with an incompetent lawyer in a different state on a chapter 13. Karen was able to help us solve the issue and she went after the other lawyer for his incompetence with excellent results.
My wife and i felt she was very helpful in resolving our legal issue and kept us well informed in recovering from our past issue. We would use her services again and have mentioned her name and office to others looking for a qualified attorney.
Thank you Karen for helping us.

Karen helped me through a divorce twelve years ago. She did exactly what I asked . When Karen could not gives me an immediate answer she did the research to find the correct wording etc. I found Karen pleasant to work with before and after the process was over. She was positive and knowledgeable in all of her proceedings.

Karen has helped me when I have sought her advice about how to solve a problem for a bankruptcy client. She is knowledgeable, thoughtful, and has a keen legal mind. I have often seen Karen speak at conventions and she always knocks their socks off. I endorse her strongly.
