Compassionate and competent lawyer!
Highly recommend Kama! From the day I met her, she was amazing. I was in a very vulnerable position, leaving a husband who was abusing me. I was scared and confused and she took my case and me by the hand on a situation I was frightened of. Initially, she got me a protection order and the divorce issues were handled in a timely and proficient manner. Truly, her staff and Kama were incredible and caring. Highly recommend… – Anonymous

Don’t hesitate, get the best
Kama is an amazing lawyer with the backing of a well established and professional group. She’s a great listener with compassion but clearly has the fortitude to go the extra mile with you in whatever circumstances. Clearly, I wouldn’t want to be on the opposite side of the table in mediation or in court. Direct, reasonable in cost, flexible, knowledgeable and very experienced. Wouldn’t have wanted anyone else. – Catherine

A Difficult Path made Easier:
“Kama was always thinking outside the box. Compassionate, empathetic, but very quick to draw the line between fair and unreasonable when dealing with the other party. Kama and her seasoned team kept me informed with all developments along the way. I liked the fact that her staff would email me a detailed list as to what documentation I would need to gather up. In addition I liked the fact that Kama is very cost conscious and would do a lot of things to mitigate my exposure to great expense by using PL’s and LA’s staff where she could. At times she would allow me to do the initial foot work at minimal or no cost. But most importantly and above all Kama treated me with respect and as a friend!!! The speed in which this case was handled from start to finish, must have set records in this State and I was pleased with the outcome.” – Gordon

Skilled & Accurate:
“Kama is a committed professional lawyer, with skilled judgment and accurate knowledge and presence in the civil court room.

I have great trust and confidence Kama will do the same for you.” – Deborah B.
