     "Karen Hubbell has been my lawyer through my divorce process. I have been extremely satisfied through this emotional and difficult time. Karen and her staff have been dependable and very professional. I don't think I would have had the outcome and courage to go through this process if it wasn't for her team. Their warmth and encouragement helped me along the way. I urge anyone looking for a fantastic lawyer to use Karen Hubbell."

     "I have had a very bad experience with my first family law attorney to fight for my 4 year old child custody to get me 50/50 legal and physical custody. 50/50 is all i asked for from the court. He lost the case and added a lot of grieves, sadness and expenses to me and Ryan. I fired him and I didn't give up for my child 50/50 custody.

     A few weeks later I was referred by another attorney, to talk to Karen Hubbell to discuss my case. I did, and she took my case which was bad managed by my first attorney.

Karen Hubbell did such a great job to win my son 50/50 custody back with a lot of her smartness and hard work. Throughout my case, I get to know Karen more. She is very fair and she knew when to slow me down. Sometimes I was getting very emotional and asking her to do things that I felt was the right thing to do at the time on my case. She always listened to me and informed me well about all the situations and prevented to add all unnecessary costs for both parties.

     Based on my experience with Karen Hubbell, there are much more good and positive things to say about Karen's honesties and fairness. I have and will recommend Hubbell Family Law to my friends that may need her services."

     "Karen Hubbell took on my very complex divorce case. It involved a fraudulent prenup, personal property and real estate all wound around a living trust. The other party didn't have a family law attorney but a trust lawyer which meant Karen had to do double duty. She was interested, intellectual, experienced, understanding and compassionate. I cannot rate her higher than 5 stars however if I could I would.

     So, if you have a tricky case and want the best look no further, you found the preeminent lawyer in town!"

- Marilyn M.

     “For my family law matters there is only one attorney in the bay area.  Her name is Karen Hubbell.  I can say that after meeting and employing several family law attorneys, all of them good attorneys, I was fortunate to have finally met Karen Hubbell.  She knows the bay area legal arena and she knows how to effectively represent her clients with a family in mind.  I was up against a difficult "moveaway" case, and Karen turned things around so that now my son lives primarily with me, his father; thanks to Karen my son now shares a life with both his parents here in the bay area.  Since that time Karen has been both a valuable advisor and when needed, an effective attorney.   Karen Hubbell is skilled and efficient; and she gets results without wasting time.  In the legal arena, saving time saves money.  So if you are looking for the cream-of-the-crop among family law attorneys, I highly recommend calling Karen Hubbell to discuss your case.”
