Bridging the Gap to legal services

Temperance Legal Group Stands out

Helping Protect
against the unexpected

I have had the pleasure of working with Karen for several years. Karen and I worked together on two cases and were very successful on both. Karen quickly summed up our first opponent as one that could not be reasoned with. With increasingly absurd requests and delays, the case was dragged out for about 18 months. Karen used this to her advantage by keeping detailed notes and skillfully working through every delay. When she brought the case before the judge, he was able to easily review it and quickly awarded me the full damages I requested plus an additional $18,000 in late fees for failed payment. Although this case produced an often frustrating atmosphere, it only allowed Karen and me to work better together and become sharper in handling difficult cases.

I was thrilled to hear Karen decided to go into private practice. She has an exceptionally strong eye for detail and that benefited me greatly on numerous occasions. She has a calm demeanor both in and out of the courtroom and always keeps her head in the game regardless of the circumstances. Karen believes in her clients and always works to secure the upper-hand in representing them.

Karen is an extremely honest and talented attorney who cares about her clients and knows how to bring them the results they deserve.
