Karen Hatton’s response: It’s unfortunate that we all have some clients who are unhappy with the outcome. A lawyer can only do what is ethically allowed and follow the law. Anything more and trouble ensues.
An excellent attorney who actually cares.

Karen and her team quickly and professionally put together and applied a strategy that settled an annoying and potentially escalating action with my best interest in mind. She changed her schedule at the last minute to appear in court and dispense with my issue.
