I am very fortunate to have been a client of Fernandez & Karney during my divorce. I was naive in thinking that all law firms behaved in an ethical and professional manner, but what I have found is that Fernandez & Karney is one of the few firms whose moral compass points due north. Everyone at this firm has my best interests at heart and I can't tell you how much that means while going through a process that is so adversarial. Crystal and Stephen have guided and advised but also consulted and included me in each and every decision. It is so nice to have one's voice heard. Importantly, they work very hard to keep my costs down in what is at times a needlessly expensive endeavor. The rest of the team and Fernandez & Karney are equally professional and caring. Every time I call and with each bill I receive I am treated in a kind and courteous manner. Thank you to each and every person at Fernandez & Karney
I was referred to Fernandez and Karney's firm and Mr. Steve Fernandez took my case and after I met with Mr. Fernandez and we spoke for a few times; I decided to give my divorce case to his firm. I am very happy that I did; because from the time that he took my case he handled it very professionally and I was very happy for my divorce settlement case. I was very happy by the results and I will highly recommend him to my friends and family!
I am so glad I found Mark H. Karney and his team! I was about to hire another lawyer for my divorce and just before I signed that contract I decided to get another opinion and I'm SO glad I did. After speaking with Mark and his wonderful paralegal Tristina I realized I almost made a huge mistake. I found out because I was married for a short time and we were amicable, we could get a dissolution instead of a divorce. An important distinction the other local law firm didn't tell me - even though they knew all the same details. This saved me over $4,000. Mark & Tristina were honest, helpful, and responsive. And they treated my case with care. They answered all my questions, and even went above and beyond in helping me get paperwork I needed when I was purchasing a home. The genuinely cared about helping me secure my home and I couldn't be more grateful.
Most of society can go their whole lives without needing an attorney; family matters result in unexpected moments in court and it's in your BEST interest to be thorough in your search for representation. I vetted at least three attorneys and even then hired/fired the first one (different firm). After a bumpy start I struck gold when I had my consult with Steven Fernandez of Fernandez and Karney. Steven's intricate knowledge of family law and his readiness with solutions gave me a sense of support and protection that you are suppose to feel when hiring an attorney. Steven felt that an attorney on his team, Jean Kim, would be a perfect fit and YES...she was. Jean Kim is a listener, legal scholar, and court navigator with an amazing ability to activate. Jean is not only super knowledgeable about the infinite avenues/detours of family law; Jean makes it a priority to know the facts and details of your situation like she knows the law. Why is this important? In real-time, court has so many unexpected moments; but with an attorney like Jean...It didn't matter because she was ready to activate and SHE DID! Thank you Jean and thanks Steven for having amazing talent on your team! And did I mention I live in another state...Jean Kim is awesome!
One of the best family law attorneys by far. They are highly knowledgeable professionals, and to say that you will want them to represent your best interests would be an understatement, simply because when it comes to issues of the court... having the best representatives is the key. And to me, choosing the right team starts with with first impressions, which was stellar from the beginning. The lady I spoke to on the phone was extremely helpful, caring, professional, ethical and of course... positive and respectful. She asked me lots of questions and details about the situation. And this is how you know if the place is good, they will ask you many questions because even the smallest detail "you may think" is irrelevant... will come back and bite you during court. So I really appreciated that level of professionalism, which sealed the deal for me. They do offer free, "IN PERSON" consultations, which is where you can decide if this is the right place for you. Overall, this is a safe place during challenging times!!!
