Karen was extremely helpful setting up my petition for conciliation. She is by far the most knowledgeable attorney regarding the necessary paperwork, how to file the petition, and where it has to be submitted. She listened intently when I was describing my situation and intentions. She was very knowledgeable and responsive to my questions and requests. She is trustworthy and diligent. I would recommend her to anyone having marital issues.


Karen and Bonita are wonderful!! I know that the word “wonderful” is used a lot, but the team they make and the work they did for me can only be described as WONDERFUL!! Yes there were ups and downs in my case, but that is the system, and Karen along with Bonita guided and taught me as “WE” went through it together. Karen’s easygoing manner and her knowledge really helped me with the emotional part of my divorce. I used the team of Karen and Bonita both times I needed to go to court with my ex and had results that were best for my little girl. Sometimes I did not get what I wanted, but it was what my daughter needed. Looking back at my case, I made the right choice and would do it again in a heartbeat!!


Karen is highly respected in the legal community. She is effective and thorough. Karen just keeps going regardless of the odds.

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 am so grateful for her expertise and guidance. She proved to be very aggressive when she needed to be, but was also supportive of me and my children. I would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.


We found Karen when we were forced to leave another Phoenix lawyer due to his bad advice and lack of interest in helping us. We were in Phoenix for six days from Michigan with nothing happening but a high-priced, wasted expense. Karen and her firm took us in and solved our issue with the courts etc. in two and a half days. Karen’s professionalism with us was very cost-effective and productive. If we would have found her first, we would have saved thousands of dollars. Her interest in our case was very high. She returned every call. She knew every answer to our questions. She even did this for us with a death in her family. She left for a funeral and made sure we were treated with the same professionalism from her firm to finish up. I recommend Karen and her firm with very high satisfaction. Our case is custody with one parent in prison. We will return to Phoenix someday with interests for the child and his parent, if needed. Karen will be our top choice.


I chose Karen back in 2010 regarding custody for my daughter. Karen was able to not only fight for my rights as a father, but stand by my side every step of the way. If you need a family law attorney, i would stop your search and contact Karen Schoenau right now.
