  • 5.0/5.0 Review for Karen R. Berhow by a Of Counsel on 06/06/14 in Civil Practice

    I have more than 40 years experience in civil practice. I have been close friends with most of the more able trial lawyers. Karen has been known to me since she was a law student. I consider her to be one of the more able lawyers in Alabama.
