I received a great review of a separation agreement. Karen was focused and to the point during the hour long consultation and also offered some perspective from her own business experience. She also assisted with some follow up questions after the consultation. Highly recommended.

I asked Karen to evaluate a non-compete agreement I had with a previous employer. She was able to provide me with the relevant key details of non-compete laws in the State of Washington and how they affected my situation. She provided counsel that helped me resolve my concerns with my former employer with a positive outcome. I highly recommend her.

Had a situation with my job and was not sure what to do next. Karen not only walked me through each stressful step, she did for me way more than I ever expected would happen. She’s very caring, intelligent and trustworthy.

Karen guided me on a tricky separation from my company. Her strategic guidance helped me identify and open up the best outcomes for me. Her tactical guidance, including detailed contract reviews and direct advocacy on my behalf, helped us achieve the desired outcome.

Hired Karen as I was looking to get into a new business venture and wanted to make sure all my bases were covered. Her experience, not only from a legal perspective, but from having a background in business and business formation made her a great resource. She was able to draft a sound operating agreement. She was able to give me real advise about the risks and things that I could do to protect the interests of myself and my family. When it didn’t work out she was still there, ready willing and able to provide any assistance she could. I really appreciate her insight as well as her honesty. Some of the things I was going to need to dive into did not fall in her area of expertise, so she offered to refer me to an individual that specialized in that particular area. Her billing practices are fair, transparent, and to me, seem very client focused. That being said, I will continue to reach out to Karen first for all my legal needs, trusting that she is more than capable of taking care of me, and knowing that she will refer me to the right people if it is in my best interest.

I hired Karen to help me understand the separation agreement I was presented with. She broken each section down and translated it into language I could understand. Her advise was sound and I used it to adjust the wording of the agreement. Hiring Karen was the right thing to do.

I received an employer agreement which they recommended I have an attorney review. I am extremely pleased with the assistance. Karen was prompt and excellent in clarifying outcomes. With expert knowledge changes were made which were then accepted.

Helped me so much with a contract issue, I would for sure recommend her to anyone needing legal aid concerning employment and contracts. She gave me a lot of courage.

Karen Klein was efficient and clear in helping me to receive the outcome that I desired for my small business. From the moment she began to work on my behalf, I felt as if I finally had a strong representative for my case. She offered me additional perspective and tips for how to proceed in the future, and in addition was warm and friendly. Thank you!

I cannot speak highly enough of Karen Klein. She recently represented me in a wrongful termination dispute. When I realized that my employer was looking for a reason to fire me, and was engaging in unethical conduct, I contacted other attorneys who said to wait and see what happens, and then contact them if I am fired. Luckily, I then found Karen and she advised me: “Do not meet with your employer without at attorney, and if you must (the meeting was happening that day, and she was unavailable), don’t say anything, just call me after”. She was so right. She worked hard, kept me up to date on all that was happening, gave me her advice and listened to my input. We eventually got a fair settlement. She was willing to take this to court, but advised me that it could possibly take a couple of years, cost me a lot of money, and my winning the case was not a “slam dunk”. She was thinking about what was best for me, and not how much money she could make. Not only was Karen’s legal advice superb, but she was a great emotional support to me, understanding how being fired can be traumatic (this was the first time anything like this ever happened to me). She also gave me advice regarding unemployment and looking for other jobs. I would recommend her without reservations.

I hired Karen to help resolve an employment contract dispute. She was professional, responsive, and represented my best interests at all times. Highly recommended.

Years ago I was told to hire Karen Klein if I ever got into a jam and needed legal assistance. That day *did* arrive when I was unable to extricate myself from an extremely complicated work situation. This problem was one that could have cost me my livelihood.
Ms. Klein was a tireless and fearless advocate as she pursued a just resolution for my situation. Very thorough, Ms. Klein does her homework and more. I can remember her going through several months of emails! She looked at *all* aspects of the situation I was in, including those that were excluded from the official discussion.
The result? I am still employed!
Hire Karen Klein if you want peace of mind. I believe that Ms. Klein is worth every single penny. I only wish I had hired her sooner!

“I hired attorney Karen Klein recently to help me with the process of allocation my union dues to a charity under a religious exemption offered by my union. I was getting resistance in my application process from the union attorney and decided to get some outside help to assist me with the process.
Karen was really fantastic. She is straight forward, to the point and all business in her approach. I got the results I was looking for in my process forward from the initial several communications she had on my behalf.
She really read my unintended personal communication tendencies very well and was able to guide me in my subsequent communications with the union.
I had the upmost confidence in her from our first meeting and she continued to prove her worth many times.”

“Locating legal counsel is tricky. There are a million lawyers, they all seem to do the same thing, and unless you are constantly in legal trouble you would have no clue what makes one better than any other. I was very fortunate to locate Karen. She helped me understand the details associated with signing a severance agreement. Karen also helped explain legal concerns associated with an NDA I had. I would again seek out Karen’s assistance if the need arose and I recommend you speak with her for your legal needs.”

“Karen helped us through the process of filing a claim for severance, because my employer declined payment. She built a working relationship while negotiating with the firm’s attorney, and kept us well informed during the discussions. We appreciated Karen’s hard work and recommend her legal service in employment matters.”

“Karen provided exemplary and timely guidance and services during our business transition process. She was very responsive through the process and presented legal documents and language in an understandable way to her clients. We felt she meet our business needs through a clear an streamlined process and recommend her services.”

“After my initial consultation with Ms. Klein I couldn’t hire her fast enough. My situation was especially troublesome as it involved an employer that was especially difficult. But her expertise in the field resolved the issue quickly with little added worry in an already stressful situation. She even gave us some very poignant information in an unrelated event concerning my motorcyclist husband who was run down by an automobile just a few days before. Ms. Klein took our situation to heart and did everything she could to help my family out. I only wish I could have hired her for my husbands case! I recommend Ms. Klein with no hesitation whatsoever.”

“We hired Karen initially because we needed “a lawyer”, but quickly, we needed some real help. Karen jumped right in and got herself familiar with our line of business and it’s rules and regulations so that she was able to stand with us when we needed her the most. As a small business owner, it’s very reassuring to know you have someone like Karen in your corner.”

“I never wanted to have a “my” attorney but when the need arose, I was glad that I found Karen Klein. She was quick to understand a tricky situation and maintained her focus on achieving a positive outcome. She was thorough, professional but still sensitive to the fact that this was costing me money.”

“I contacted Karen via a reference. I needed contract rights and responsibilities reviewed and enforced. Not only did she provide excellent representation in legal meetings but provided sound advice and experts to back up what needed to be done to fulfill contractual obligations. I would and have recommended her to anyone who needs a lawyer.”

“Mrs. Klein really helped me out of a very tough jam. My case was very unique, and the knowledge that she brought was amazingly helpful in winning my case. I would HIGHLY recommend hiring her.”
