Always shown kindness and empathy towards anyone she meets!
Karen Holman was my lawyer when I was dealing with Social Services and the state of VA! I met Karen when I was working to gain custody of my kids back! They were taken because of my drug use and the state took custody of them! I had her ongoing for a year to represent myself in court and through that year she never gave up on me! She has always been my personal cheerleader, motivating me to do what the right thing was in life. She was always there for me and never turned her ear away just to listen! Karen has always maintained a professional relationship with me but has always shown kindness and empathy towards anyone she meets! She is the kind of person that will always be fair and has integrity with whatever she is completing. She loves the Lord and uses him to guide her through life and her career! It has been a Blessing to have her as a mentor in my life! Karen is one of my biggest reasons beside the Lord that I am on the path that I am now drug free, regained custody of my children and have an awesome career just by her being her and being genuine!
Immediately puts you at ease, probably because she possesses such a warm and patient way about her
The first time you speak with Karen, she immediately puts you at ease, probably because she possesses such a warm and patient way about her. She asks important questions and listens intently to make sure she has a thorough understanding of the goal at hand. Such a breath of fresh air from other lawyers, who speak over you and offer solutions before they understand the situation. Not only is Karen a master in her family law field, but she is also extremely thorough in her document review and preparation. Cannot be happier with her services. Would totally recommend!
Karen is exactly the kind of attorney and companion you want in your corner.
Our first communication with Karen was in early 2017, we finalized our adoption with her assistance in April 2020, but her support and love has continued to present day.
Karen was recommended to us by another adoption professional that we were working with locally. We met with her at the beginning of our journey, and we loved herimmediately. She was honest, thorough, informative and patient; her parting words that day were,"call me when you need me!" We waited two unsuccessful years with an adoption facilitator before reconnecting with Karen to get her guidance on proceeding with a private adoption. She was just as supportive and informative as our first visit even after all that time!
We were incredibly nervous about how vulnerable social media outreach would leave us, but she assured us that she would do the legal legwork once we made the connection with an expectant mother. AND SHE DID! She guided us through the hard questions, the paperwork, the bumpy legal processes. She showed up to the hospital in jeans and tennis shoes on her "day off." She walked us through months of legal jargon post-placement. She drove to Richmond to get a copy of our daughter's amended birth certificate because our finalization happened right at the beginning of COVID and everything was a mess. When we run into her now, she hugs us like we're old friends and asks how everyone is. Karen is exactly the kind of attorney and companion you want in your corner. We are so thankful for her in our lives!
To say that I am impressed is an understatement
Karen, You have exceeded my expectations in every possible way. You are absolutely exceptional. To say that I am impressed is an understatement. I am so grateful, and even though the total sum I paid you is a lot of money to me, I feel like I got the greatest value for my money that I have EVER received. THANK YOU!
