“Right is right, even if everyone is against it, and wrong is wrong, even if everyone is for it.  - William Penn


Karen was a criminal prosecutor in the biggest judicial district in Colorado for almost 25 years and completed over 100 jury trials including homicides, child and adult sexual assaults, robberies, domestic violence cases, and a mass casualty shooting.  When she and her husband moved to Oklahoma, it was the right time to transition to a new area of law, and family law is a good fit for her background and experience.  Family law allows her to help people dealing with life's challenges and assist them in finding a way to move forward.    

Karen lives in Oklahoma City with her husband.
