  • I have had Kara represent me off and on the last four years, she has handled everything from child custody, domestic violence and a tough case which I had a hearing in Florida and in California regarding child custody. Kara is very knowledgeable fair, and a fighter. You definitely want her by your side walking into a court room!


  • Kara has represented me and my husband multiple times for the last 4-5 years.
    She has always been respectful of what we were asking for with the other party involved and gave us all options. Court can be very nerve wrecking but Kara is always calm, cool and collected and puts me at ease knowing our case is in her hands.  I know our court battles will continue over the years and we will undoubtedly stick with Kara if/when we have to go back.


  • Kara is an amazing attorney. After several years of court with divorce and custody I finally gave in and hired an attorney. I am so glad I did. Within a year Kara got custody and my divorce finalized. She told me things I didn't even know I had to do and took care of everything. I highly recommend her for any family law needs.


  • Kara is amazing! I had an out of state custody case and she made it smooth and seamless. She was able to get my ex-parte hearing in line, was very thorough and advised me very well on my options. For being as an unpleasant ordeal as it was, she made it less stressful than I could have ever imagined.
