I agree with the previous Post by Evan. I had Ms. Unger represent me on two different matters over the years (luckily both were pretty much slam-dunks. I paid the retainer, we went to court - matters were settled). If you do not mind an attorney with a 'small town' mentality and the good ol'boy getter' done attitude then Ms. Unger is the attorney for you. Ms. Unger's reputation within the community as an attorney is one that leans towards getting the case settled over drink's during happy hour. If you have a simple case there is nothing wrong with a happy hour attorney! it cost's less to litigate over drink's than in the court room. If you have a need for serious representation do yourself a favor and retain an attorney that has a reputation for being ethical, honest, trustworthy, and organized. All characteristic's I found lacking in Ms. Unger.

Karen Unger is a good laywer because she is "in" the establishment.
Port Angeles is a small town and all the lawyers know the other laywers and Judges.
Karen was an attorney for my Daughter after an accident at school.
She was also the attorney for my daughters Mom during several custody and child support hearings.
If you are in a custody dispute of Family law she is a good attorney as far as knowing how to extend the process.
Unger is probably the most unorganized attorney in Port Angeles which helped my attorney a great deal.Having said that, she is effective in making her client feel good because of her loud and obnoxious way she portrays the other party.
Most of the Judges are used to her antics and poor manners and do not pay much attention to her claims.
The best thing about hiring Karen Unger is her ability to cut deals with her friends and that is why you see other attorneys rating her favorably.
Make no mistake about it, most of your case is decided over a cocktail at lunch. You do not stand a chance in hell if she has any reason not to like you and if you are a male then the odds are you don't want her as your attorney.
Specifically, Karen postpones meetings, delays court dates and settles most cases by costing the other party more money than the case is worth.
If you have a case that can be won in this way, Karen is a great attorney for you.

Karen just represented my boyfriend and did an excellent job. I think she put a lot of effort into a very difficult case. She was intelligent, forceful but respectful and professional.

I consider Karen to be a superb lawyer. I have seen her in trial, and seen her argue motions from the time I worked in the public defender's office in Port Angeles. She does great work and is unafraid, period. She's intensely passionate about what she does and you want her on your side if you are facing prosecution for a crime.

I absolutely endorse this lawyer's work. KAREN UNGER IS THE PENINSULA'S BEST CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY!! She is one of the few attorney's that I uphold with integrity and admiration. She is the hardest, smartest, brilliant trial attorney I have witnessed!! Highest endorsement!
