“Karen is an ardent advocate. She helped us along a very difficult and emotional case. She wouldn’t back down and she supported us wholly, even though our case wasn’t straightforward and opposing council was working their relationship hard to get us to settle. We won our case. An unprecedented amount of money, which sent a clear message to the defendants. Not only was Karen exceptional in her abundant expertise in this field of special education, she was also a support to our family. She worked quickly, decisively and forcefully to move our case toward a much needed large settlement to get our child what he needed. I recommend Karen whenever I can.
