Incredible Attorney!
I am very glad to have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Green. He is extremely knowledgeable and personable. He broke things down to a very easy to understand level and answered any and every question I had, sometimes before I could even ask them. He kept me updated throughout the entire process and, even in trying times, worked very quickly. I ended up getting basically the best case scenario for my case and can not thank Mr. Green enough for the effort and time he put in for me to help make that happen! I would and will recommend Karl Green to friends, family, or literally anyone that might require his services. Thank you very much for everything you did for me!

Criminal Attorney for Unemployment Fraud
I was referred to Karl Green by another attorney as someone that may be able to help me with an old unemployment fraud case from back in 2009. After a phone call with him, I quickly retained him and had great results in a short amount of time. Within 10 days of the date of retainer, my case had been dismissed. Karl was friendly, knowledgeable, ON THE BALL and contacted me immediately with any and all movement with my case. He was also very helpful in making sure that I understood everything and that I had copies and a paper-trail for everything pertinent. Overall, I had a very positive experience and got the results I had hoped for. I would highly recommend his services.

Great Divorce Attorney
Karl did an amazing job in a recent divorce. Great final decree with both parents having equal child custody , minimal alimony, preserved pension. I was so worried going into this as I always feel the man will not get a fair shake. Karl made sure not only was this fair but way above my expectations.

Best lawyer
I have used Karl several times for criminal defense for family members. Karl always keeps us very informed prior to court about what to expect and has always talked with the state attorney before court to negotiate. Our outcomes have always been better than expected as well. highly recommended. I have used other attorneys and this was definitely not the case. They seemed ill prepared and did not keep us informed on anything.

Knowledgeable and Dependable
Mr. Green was a great attorney when I found myself blindsided by a contentious exboyfriend who was trying to use the legal system to continue to try and torment me even after we had broken up. Mr. Green took the time to listen to my situation, and explain what legal action I needed to take which was to file a Temporary Injunction for Protection Against Domestic Violence. Mr. Green also helped guide me in obtaining the lengthy rap sheet on my exboyfriend which included a history of domestic violence against other women. A legal history I was unaware of, but had experienced during our short relationship. Because of his numerous arrests, convictions, and an incarceration, this guy was very knowledgeable in how the legal system operated as well as how it could be manipulated. Mr. Green was truly my savior. He explained everything in great detail and answered any and all questions I had. When we went to court he was able to find a resolution that kept the exboyfriend away from me, and kept my reputation intact. I would use Mr. Green again without hesitation. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a knowledgeable and attentive attorney who exhibits great integrity. I am truly grateful for what he did for me.

An exceptional attorney, deeply cares for his client!
Mr. Green did an exceptional job with my unfortunate situation. Many years ago I made a very poor choice, my family contacted Mr. Green on my behalf and I feel I would not be the person I am today without his service. He was very understanding, considerate of my position and represented me with the up most in moving forward in a positive direction. Even to this day Mr. Green has been a person I can speak to about my life at this time and has been very helpful in any way he can. This is a vey nice man who has your needs and interest at heart. I highly recommend Mr. Green if you are needing an lawyer who is willing to go above and beyond. Thank you for your service Mr. Green and also thank you for taking the additional time even after all these years to helping me and my family to move forward. Thank You!

Amazing
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Mr. Karl Green for all the care and concern he showed me during my divorce. Mr. Green worked tirelessly to ensure that everything worked in my favor. When I was served with the divorce papers, everything seemed hopeless to me and my children. I had no one to turn to until I was referred to Mr. Green. He took my case without resistance and ensured me that everything was going to be okay. From the moment I met him up until my case was closed, I had peace of mind because he took care of everything concerning my children and me. If it weren’t for Mr. Green’s analytical skills and compassionate heart, I don’t know what could have happened to me. I am very thankful for his legal advice, time, and effort he put in to assist me. I will definitely recommend Mr. Green to anyone who is in need of a legal assistance.

We sought Mr. Green to represent a family member. He and his legal team were amazing listeners, understanding, kind and offered amazing council and representation. He was very professional and his attention to detail and genuine care and concern showed through the whole process. His communication was excellent and he was extremely timely with all of our correspondence. We would highly recommend him to anyone in need of great representation and a genuinely kind, caring man to help in their legal needs.
