Certified Family Law Specialists

Steve Fernandez and Mark Karney are Certified Family Law Specialists*

“Dear Mr. Mark Karney,
I would first like to apologize for taking so long to write to you and thank you for the amazing work you did for my family and I. You will never know how much all you did meant to me. My child custody case was a complicated one because it was a move away case. As trying as it was at times you handled it professionally and with integrity. I honestly do not believe I would have achieved the desired outcome that I did without your law firm. Your knowledge, confidence and real desire for what was in the best interest of my daughters was honorable. Thanks to you and your law firm I received primary custody of my daughters and we were allowed to move away. We are living the life we dreamed and I just want you to know how truly grateful I am to you.”



“Divorce attorney Mark Karney took over my case with a high level of professionalism and integrity. He explained all the legal aspects in detail and he was up front with me from the beginning about my chances, legal options, time expected, possible outcomes, and legal fees. Mr. Karney was a true professional every step of the way and always responded to all my phone calls in a timely manner and answered all the questions I had.”



“I am still in the midst of my divorce case and it’s a kicker tearing me inside out and let me tell you I could not have landed in a better firm. They are managing me terrifically. There have been times when they could have milked me pushing ideas of restraining orders etc..when I became distraught and they didn’t. There are many wrong turns I could have taken that could have derailed my case but they have kept all aligned in a conservative and smart, tactical way.”
