Karen Brown has had a long and diverse legal career for nearly 40 years. She began practicing general civil litigation with a concentration in the entertainment industry and eventually, expanded to provide services encompassing real estate, probate, labor, landlord tenant, commercial disputes and general business related matters. She has counseled some clients for over 20 years on an as needed basis. Her dedication and generous spirit has won her the devotion and praise of many clients over the years. Ms. Brown is an accomplished trial attorney who is dedicated to providing prompt and professional service to her clients’ most pertinent needs in all areas of complex family law litigation. Ms. Brown has been practicing family law exclusively for 10 years.

She began concentrating in family law 15 years ago when she discovered the many rewards in helping people through difficult and challenging times. Karen truly loves the practice of family law and aiding families with their many concerns. Her goal is to help her clients arrive at the best resolution for their matters with an eye towards economizing their costs to the most practical extent. If the case involves litigation, she will advocate for her clients without hesitation to bring justice in focus. She is mindful of the prevailing requirements for matters to be resolved without extended court battles and will work toward that goal when it is possible. Karen provides that extra ingredient of truly caring about her clients. Her clients know this and in many cases have stayed in touch long after their case is resolved because of the genuine concern she expressed for their well being.

Ms. Brown has an extensive background in representing clients in difficult family law matters including custody disputes, highly contested financial matters related to divorces, and pre-and post-nuptial agreements. She ran her own private practice for close to a decade, during which time she was the “go-to” lawyer for the Beverly Hills Bar Association to member firms for assignments, both trial and appellate, in family law, immigration, labor and employment, entertainment, real estate, and other general civil matters. Having concentrated exclusively on family law in recent years, her experience has included simple divorces to multi-million dollar cases involving real estate and other assets. Ms. Brown provides clients with not only expert legal counsel, but the care and attention required in highly sensitive and often stressful litigations. The testimonials from her former clients resound with praise for her concern and attention to detail.

Having tried more than 20 cases to conclusion with an exceptionally high success rate and having arbitrated dozens of cases while union counsel, Ms. Brown has utilized her diverse experience for her family law clientele by providing advice and counsel to clients through innovative solutions that have helped save them thousands of dollars in legal expenses and years of protracted litigation.
