Karen was an expert in my case. She appeared on each case held my hand and got my case resolved. Bless her heart. Karen is experienced and knows what she's doing. If anyone I know needs a good family law attorney, I will send them to Karen.

Karen Brown is a force of nature. She has more experience in her pinky finger than most family law attorneys could dream of. She will be real with you and tell you the good things and the bad things about your case. She does not mince words. She will tell you like it is. You might not want to hear some of the things she has to say, but she is a realist and does not get involved in the emotional side of things, which is the best kind of attorney to have. My former attorney sympathized with me and told me what was going to happen, but nothing he predicted, happened. That’s not true, my huge bills happened! I found Karen halfway through my divorce and she straightened everything out.


I am finally at the end of my divorce and am totally content. She has fought for me the entire time all while keeping the billing affordable. I have seen her in court many times and she is really prepared and always knows more than the other side. Opposing counsel was embarrassed many times because he was not filing things on time and leaving things out. No one knows family law like Karen.


Take the stress out of an already stressful situation and let Karen handle it all. She knows what she is doing and will get it DONE to your satisfaction.


Come game day, Karen was prepared and solid in the courtroom, and everything turned out alright. Although I was unsuccessful at stopping the relocation, I received a great custody schedule–fair with time made up during summer for that which I’d lose as a result of the move away–my support schedule was lowered to a more reasonable schedule, and most importantly my ex-wife learned that she couldn’t just arbitrarily and unilaterally make decisions regarding the children without a strong response from Karen’s office, which ultimately has kept her in check.


Again I say I wouldn’t wish divorce and its subsequent legalities on anybody, but if it is unavoidable, you need a strong professional in your corner, someone who understands family law comprehensively and someone who will be there for you during tough times, and not dump you off on an inexperienced associate. I cannot recommend Karen Brown highly enough.


For one of the most important decisions you may ever make–hire Karen Brown: you will not be disappointed.

I wish divorce on nobody. It is about one of the ugliest things one can experience; but, of course, it is also one of life’s unfortunate realities. Because of its inflammatory nature, who you have in your corner fighting for you is crucial. I had an unusual case in that I was already divorced (foolishly I was unrepresented in the initial proceedings) but my ex-wife was planning on relocating with my children to a different city (without my consent). Because I had no representation the first time around, I got completely squeezed financially with a support schedule I couldn’t handle, and I needed it reduced legally.


I interviewed three other divorce attorneys before a friend recommended Los Angeles family law specialist Karen Brown. Every attorney I spoke with told me that I had a case, but Karen got the ball rolling immediately. She demonstrated her expertise in the area of family law, and I could tell that she was tough, and that’s what I wanted, as I was dealing with some irresponsibly ruthless people and needed somebody strong by my side. Karen was definitely that. She was tough on me too, which was good because she prepared me for the tough questions I would surely face in court (and which I did).


Karen was thorough and always open for communication. Although it wasn’t cheap (I only bring this up so you don’t fool yourself in believing there will be an inexpensive way out, as some family law attorneys will lead you to believe. It just isn’t so), she was mindful of my financial situation and allowed me to take care of anything I could that would keep costs down. When it became apparent that the other side was not willing to negotiate on any issue, Karen was an excellent strategist, making moves that ultimately secured our argument–I could not have asked for more.

I wouldn’t wish having to go through a divorce on my worst enemy.


It’s just a marathon of disappointment and ill feeling and you never have enough time to just stop and process what’s happening to you – you just have to hold on tight and stay on the crazy train until it stops.


Luckily for me, I managed to find Karen S. Brown during my early ‘crazy days’. She has been my tireless advocate and has managed to keep me clear and focused on the necessary priorities and tasks that I need to get through this thing.


From our first phone conversation, she inspired immediate confidence that she was interested in working “for me” on “my case” not just in scoring another client, which was the general impression I got from many of the other lawyers I’d already talked to. None of the other lawyers I’d met presented me with the legal facts of my specific case as clearly and thoroughly as Karen did or offered any of the options and solutions “up front” that she and her team presented during consultation. I’m sure some of the other lawyers would have been happy to discuss these details “after” I’d paid their retainer but Karen was willing to tell me what she’d be able to do for me if I hired her BEFORE I hired her.


Throughout initial preparation she and her team were incredibly responsive and meticulous – every call and e-mail handled promptly, every process demystified. We were really well prepared for our hearing and as we entered into negotiations with opposing counsel I was very impressed with her ability to troubleshoot on the fly and keep me informed of the best possible options as the landscape kept changing. Karen worked hard to get me the best possible deal on Temporary Support and is still working every angle as we wind down on final negotiations.


Karen actually listens and tries to understand what it is that you are trying to accomplish. She’s incredibly knowledgeable, professional and particularly tenacious in the courtroom. She was also willing to work with me on a schedule for paying my retainer and fees which were far more reasonable than just about any other lawyer I met with and I now trust her with a confidence usually reserved for close friends and family members.


Karen is impeccable.


If you need a Divorce Lawyer who will be invested in understanding what it is “you” need and will put her considerable skills behind helping you reach those objectives – do not hesitate to call Karen Brown.

I hired Karen to help me with a last minute serious custody issue for my 3 yr. old son. She was super efficient, professional and very knowledgable. She helped me to realize that there were certain aspects of my current order that needed to stop immediately and it help me greatly. Karen is very kind, supportive and really cares about her clients and the welfare of the children involved. I recommend her highly to anyone needing a family law attorney. I am very pleased with her services and will continue to keep her by my side for any future needs. Her passion for her work really shows, she will not let you down and she will make sure that the law brings justice.

Karen has been a godsend in a very difficult time of my life. She has knowledge and expertise that has been paramount in guiding me through my divorce proceedings. In addition to her legal prowess, her good nature and friendly demeanor are greatly appreciated. She would be highly recommended for anyone needing advice or assistance with a Family Law related issue. While I hope never to go through anything like this again, if I do, I know who to call.

Ms. Brown is attentive, knowledgeable and very professional. She is also compassionate and dedicated to her clients. Her availability and responsiveness are very reassuring, especially to clients like myself who are overwhelmed with personal circumstances that have exploded into situations requiring legal action. I recommend Ms. Brown with enthusiasm and respect, and without reservation.
I was a client of Karen Brown for over 5 years during which time I went through a divorce and contentious, complex custody battle. With Karen as your counsel, you are always informed about what is happening with your case – not left to wonder or told about details much later as is sadly the case with many firms. I remained with her as a client for that extended time because of the excellent quality of her representation and communications with me. She was prompt in all contacts and an effective, strong and dedicated litigator. I worked with her as a “partner” so that we strategized my lawsuit step by step together as a team. Her writing style in pleadings and letters accurately reflected what I wanted to communicate – one of many of her unique abilities.
I fully recommend her services to persons who want a conscientious, detailed and smart family lawyer. She is very personable and strives to give you special attention. Even though my case concluded, I feel comfortable and welcome to reach out to her with any questions I may have. That is very different from many other attorneys.

Ani Supowitz

As a client of KB, I can attest to her professional and thorough advice given to me on a number of business related matters. She has over 30 years experience as a civil litigator, in various capacities in the entertainment industry and as a family law attorney. That wealth of knowlege was applied to my circumstances with integrity and real caring for my situation. I strongly recommend her to all in need. She is affordable and works with you in a cooperative and sensitive manner.
Karen has a hands on approach and goes the distance to ensure her clients are informed, participate and get the results they to which they are entitled. At minimum, their information is carefully and accurately represented to the court. She takes the time to make sure the client understands what is at stake and realistically what can be resolved.

Karen Brown was very helpful and supportive during the process of my divorce. She truly kept me focused, organized during the most difficult times and throughout the healing process. Karen’s expertise and long term experience truly benefits the best interest of the client.

Julie Morgan

Karen was completely and thoroughly prepared each time we went to court- and this is her key to winning. She demonstrated utmost poise and precise counterargument when dealing with opposing counsel, despite the unprofessional behaviors of the opposing counsel and his client. Karen worked diligently to address all my concerns, no matter how trivial and was able to help me understand and prioritize all issues. I am very appreciative of how she helped me get through an extremely difficult time. This is the lawyer you want working for you. She took my case to heart and didn’t just put me through the “machine.” I call her Carin’ Karin. Thank you Karen!
