“Karen was extremely supportive during a very trying time in our lives. She helped me to put things in perspective and think positive when I was overwhelmed. She is very knowledgeable about the laws pertaining to grandparents’ rights and the rights of the parents and knew how to provide the appropriate laws pertaining to the situation we were in.

I would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.”

Your attorney will work closely with you to identify your optimal outcome and evaluate any proposals you receive, helping you avoid a harmful agreement.
