Karen represented me as I petitioned for Grandparent Visitation of my grandchild. Not only does Karen possess command of all relevant laws, enabling her to proactively advance and protect her client’s interests regardless of what comes up in court, and not only does she carry a stellar reputation among judges and attorneys, but she also handled my grandchild with incredible grace and wisdom during a sudden and dramatic moment of reunion in the court building. She is a strong presence in the court room, a dedicated listener, and a masterful advocate. MS

Karen Jansen has been my attorney on and off for the past 11 years. During this time, Karen has been wonderful in the way she has always approached and handled my case. Her counsel, availability, attention to detail, honesty—letting me know what is possible under the law and what is not, and her representation in the courtroom has been nothing short of exceptional. Karen may be an expert at the law, but she also listened very well and valued my opinion every step of the way. Last but not least, Karen runs a very ethical practice and that meant the world to me… WB

While no one wants to be in a situation where legal representation is needed, many times we do not have a choice. While facing a very complicated child support matter, and not knowing anyone else who ever used an attorney for this type of case that could possibly recommend someone, I felt vulnerable and lost. I found Karen Jansen by looking at the Family Court calendar in my city, and saw her name listed on several cases. I contacted her and immediately felt genuine concern and interest in my case. I am so happy fate guided me her way. She is knowledgeable, experienced, and really does care. At every phase of my legal matter I felt a great deal of confidence in having Karen Jansen represent me, and always believed she had mine and my children’s best interest at heart. Most of all, I am very happy to say we had a successful outcome! While not an easy ordeal to go through, I believe Karen’s professionalism and support was an invaluable asset on my side.
