"My contractor had made a big mistake in the house construction, which caused a major leak through each floor of the house, every time it rained. That situation put my tenants in a very hard living condition. My contractor used all his legal powers to tell me, he was right and it was someone' else mistake. He said he would never pay for the reconstruction. I payed it out of my pocket and was sure I would never see my money back. I was so lucky to meet Karyne Ghantous! Not only I got all the money back, she managed to cover me for the months when the house was empty, as a profit loss. Karyne was honest and professional. I am overseas most of the time, but even the time difference was never a problem to get her help and answers ASAP. Highly recommend her as a lawyer. Thank you Karyne!"

"Karyne Ghantous provided me with straight forward and practical suggestions with the HOA issues I am dealing with. Unlike some lawyers that requested that I paid for their documents review time before providing any basic direction, she suggested useful approach I can take first before investing in expensive legal fees. Her suggestions make good sense to me and feel empowering (how often do lawyers make you feel that way?! :)). I appreciate her honesty and expertise!"
