“It’s been almost a year now. I want to thank you for helping guide me through a very difficult time in my personal life. The words you wrote in your final letter have proven to be a touchstone. You reminded me that even though my ex-wife was being very disrespectful to me and my boys, we were still good people. I’m still working on my own life but am retired. I would not have been able to do things as well as I did were it not for your calm, objective advice. Thank you for making a huge difference. Live well.”
I’m sure you hear words of thanks often, but please know how appreciative I am of your knowledge, prowess, skills and insight. I’m in awe of your capabilities and feel blessed to have you on my side.
Bravo to you Karen. I am not at all exaggerating when I say to you that you are one of the top 2 mediators, among the many with whom I have dealt in my 42 years of family law work. Thanks for your thoroughness, well preparedness and attention to detail, and, — care.
Karen helped me get through the hurt, chaos and confusion that comes with being blindsided by a divorce. She was 'real' and sympathetic at the same time.
Karen kept my interests at the forefront and didn't push me toward decisions I wasn't ready to make. She respected my choices, even when they didn't agree with her advice.
I feel genuinely honored to have had Karen's passion and intellect on hand to resolve an incredibly complex matter. I appreciate how ingenious her resolution was and the magnitude of the protections it provides for our client and her children.
I love working with attorneys like Karen. She is a fair, patient mediator who helped out client reach a settlement despite some unique circumstances.
Karen, words cannot express how appreciative I am to you for settling the case. You are a family law pro bono superstar.
I can hardly believe that, thanks to you Karen, my divorce was resolved in just two months. I'm feeling an overwhelming sense of relief--and am really in awe of how you work.
Karen and her team are excellent, and the entire firm is full of people who care.
Karen, you gave me so much knowledge and truly had an impact on my life and my children’s lives.
You have been such an incredible influence on me as a strong, independent woman. I learned so much from you and your confidence in me. I appreciate and respect you for all you did to help me find myself and decide where I’m going with my life.
Thanks to you, I’m living a very joyful life. Your expert counsel and skills as an attorney have allowed me to carry on in a way that has been truly wonderful. My son is back in my life and we are even playing hockey together.
We so appreciated your willingness to listen and help us implement the unique desires of our family. We’re moving forward in a kind and respectful way, although we are all facing a blank page we never anticipated. With your leadership, we are able to face the future with dignity and a sense of contentment.
Karen, you are my hero. I’ll never forget everything you’ve done to help me start my brand new life.
Many thanks for your thoughtful, thorough approach during mediation. You turned something my husband and I had been dreading for months into a positive move forward for us both.
It was a real pleasure to work with you, even if the purpose was our separation agreement. We will move ahead and be in touch if anything unexpected arises.
I immediately felt comfortable with Karen. The high level of communication was greatly appreciated given the tight timelines required.
The work you do can really make or break the lives of people who are going through a divorce. I honestly think that if I had worked with someone else, it could have been a disaster.
From the moment I entered, everyone was personable, caring, and professional. For many businesses, that’s hard to do consistently—and you did. I was amazed how fast Karen communicated with me. My husband would have dragged out the divorce forever, but she didn’t let that happen.
Thank you for all your help with my divorce. I really feel you may have been the most objective, level-headed and fair person among everyone involved.
Karen has a knack for helping people relax under pressure. She listens intently and explains the law in simple terms. Her firm has a positive and uplifting environment despite the serious nature of the work they do.
I was very pleased with all of the staff and I felt I was treated with compassion and respect. They handled the tactics of my wife's attorney well and represented me with professionalism.
I'm hoping we are the poster children for the benefits and positive power of successful mediation. Both my husband I feel we had an excellent team guiding us, and the process had immeasurable benefits to the well-being of our children. Our unified 'co-parenting' arrangement contradicts every stereotype they have of divorce, and doesn't give them one 'bad guy' to blame.
I felt a lot better walking out of your office after our mediation session than I did walking in. I appreciate all you did to ensure we came to an agreement today.
Thank you very much for making a new (and good) chapter of my life possible. I appreciate that you did a lot of extra things for me, and understand now why you came with such superb recommendations.
Karen was as much a part of the solution as any counsel I have ever seen in any case. To get as much agreement as we got is a real testament to your ability to remain patient and forward-moving.
That was some pretty breathtaking lawyering. I can't think of too many others who could have negotiated a win/win situation under these circumstances, especially in that short amount of time.
I appreciated Karen's professionalism, knowledge, and friendly approach.
I can't tell you how much my life has improved due to our interaction. Thank you so much for your intensely professional service.
You’re my all-time hero…you don’t know what it means to have someone of your integrity stand up for me after all I’ve been through. Thank you more than I can express.
I came to you for expertise and guidance, and in addition, you made me feel cared about and supported, which made all the difference in getting through the legalities of the divorce process.
I will never forget how you flawlessly seemed to pre-empt opposing counsel’s efforts to divert attention from the critical issues. People remark over and over how lucky I was to have you as my attorney.
Thanks again, Karen, for your support, calming influence, professionalism, humor, and all-around good care. I’m sleeping better and enjoying the newness of spring; life is good.
Thanks to your skill and caring, my daughter finally has a shot at a stable life. Our settlement allows her to maintain a relationship with her mother while having a secure place to call home. Outcomes like this may be commonplace for you, but it will make a lifetime of difference for my daughter.
I wanted you to know how much respect—profound respect, in fact —I have for you as an attorney. You are ethical, hard working, personable, and wise. I have seen you in the role of advocate, mediator, and arbitrator. You have an uncompromising commitment to the law, to equity, and to people in general. You balance your love of your family, your devotion to service to the bar and the community, responsibility to your firm, and a continuing private practice
I loved Karen’s style of engagement and advice, and she worked hard to keep my charges reasonable.
Thank you for fighting hard for me today and explaining how the court will decide the amount of alimony & child support.
My thanks for your wonderful representation and personal kindness. I am better off for having had both.
I recognize all the hard work you are doing and how effective you are in court.
Karen, you are great to work with—a class act.
I can't tell you how grateful I am for your understanding and efforts during my custody case. It's the first time in a long time that I will sleep peacefully, and my daughter is very happy, too.
Karen is a whip-smart attorney who kept my head on straight during my own painful divorce. Her unquestionable expertise and gentle sense of humor kept the process as classy as possible. She manages to negotiate a difficult situation with much grace and compassion.
Thanks to you for all you've done and are doing. My kids are adjusting very well to the divorce, and it's great for me to be part of their lives again. Picking them up directly from school, which you arranged, is a joy.
Karen, I am so happy that you are on my team. I love how you phrase things to get the desired result. When my partner kept raising old issues, you intervened to advocate for the best interests of our son.
Thank you for the most efficient, smart, pleasant and well run mediation I have ever attended. Way more than two thumbs up!
I really appreciate all your efforts throughout the mediation. I truly felt that you had [my child’s] best interests in mind, which was incredibly reassuring. I still dont know how you kept going yesterday without eating all day! I know that I was fuzzy by late afternoon!
Although I’m not 100% happy with the outcome, I understand that it is not possible to get everything in a negotiation. I actually did get more than I expected financially. The other stuff is really unimportant as I know that....is unlikely to fulfill his part. And if he does, all the better for [my child]! I know that [my former partner] is a tough person to deal with and everyone involved spent a lot more time on this than necessary. I sincerely appreciate everyone’s patience. I always felt that you appreciated my thoughts and were personally invested in getting a fair agreement that we all could live with.
