Men and women often seek different qualities in the divorce lawyer they choose to represent them, but the one lawyer each side wants is Attorney Koren Thal. She’s that rare breed sought by both men and women because she’s so tough, tenacious and tireless when it comes to fighting for her clients.Attorney Thal is well respected in legal circles because she is not afraid to take on challenging cases. In fact, she relishes the fight! She’s the lawyer men call if they fear being steamrolled by overly aggressive opposing counsel. She’s the one women call when they need someone willing to go toe-to-toe against a confrontational spouse or an adversarial lawyer – or even the judge behind the bench.Attorney Thal takes on all kinds of family law cases – divorce and separation, child custody and support, alimony, restraining orders (fighting for and against them), modifications of support orders (up and down) and parenting plans. She also handles contempt cases, paternity and virtually any other type of family law matter.She is especially passionate when it comes to protecting the rights of fathers, especially those who want and deserve more time with their children. She is equally committed to helping women and their families who are victims of domestic abuse. In fact, one of her most cherished accomplishments was helping a woman and her children escape the grips of domestic violence by convincing a judge to remove the father from their home.Though tough, Attorney Thal is also incredibly compassionate. “What I find most rewarding about being an attorney is the ability to help people during one of the most emotionally difficult times of their lives. I aim to not only zealously advocate for my clients, but also to provide a shoulder to lean on.”That’s one of the reasons her clients love her, and convince their friends to hire Attorney Thal as well. Her clients describe her as a hard-working and quick-thinking – someone who can swiftly digest and distill the facts to get to the heart of the matter, then work with her clients to develop the legal strategy needed to obtain the best possible outcome for their particular circumstance.Other attorneys consider Attorney Thal fair, but stern. “I will not tolerate an aggressive attorney intimidating my client, nor settlement conferences that waste my client’s time or money. If either of those scenarios occur, I make it clear that I will be a pertinacious advocate for my client.”Attorney Koren E. Thal is a graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara, and Suffolk University Law School. She also attended the University of Lund in Sweden and the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. She is licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.
