"This was our fourth trust and estate plan. Two of the previous trusts were drawn up by large international law firms with large estate planning departments.

She totally understood what we're trying to accomplish and was willing to advise us. In addition, she was extremely kind to both my father and me."

"I felt that I could trust your firm, and was very impressed. I got your name from a law firm in NYC then saw your ad in the Palm Beach Gardens paper, and went to your workshop. Sometimes when I call and need to talk to someone with a question that I have, I have to leave a message and then wait for my return call. But then they ALWAYS DO CALL BACK. Genny Bernstein is a true professional as is Khristina Iwasz, she does her job very well. You are lucky to have her with your firm, for she knows her job, and so does Genny."

"The free seminar was truly far and away more than I expected - chock-full of info because of the very important points that Joe brought out. He was clear and understandable. Made me realize how much I did not know and how very vulnerable on several fronts I was.
"The compassion of Joe and on down: he sets the tone of the firm. His private free consultation was invaluable. I left knowing what I had to do in the immediate and what to do in the future.
"I appreciate that Joe is certified whereas the others I inquired of specialized in elder law but were not certified. Very impressive.
"Thanks again, Rochelle."
"Attorney Bernstein was very helpful, courteous and is well versed and knowledgeable in her area of practice. The paralegals and office staff are great."
"In day to day correspondence, I worked with Janet Suarez. Janet was always ready to explain the steps I needed to take, and did so with patience and kindness. I also worked with Adele Harris, and she also was supportive and clear. They both helped me get through the probate process and I appreciate their support."
"Never needed a lawyer but an old friend recommended your firm. Now I will pass on the great favor. I will always be thankful to my friend for giving me the name of Joe Karp. He gave me info I never knew I needed. I was and I am so pleased with Mr. Karp. He has been so helpful and caring with all our needs. I feel like he is now my 'Great Protector.' I feel like he has gone above and beyond for us. I know I will be able to call on him for anything."
-Mrs. Constance Jacobs
Asked why she chose The Karp Law Firm:
"Because it is the best. I retained Joe Karp in 1996 and 1997 when I was in charge of my friend's trust. I also had a trust done by him and have sent several clients to him, including my daughters. I was so pleased with Adele Harris and the receptionist at the front desk. Many thanks."

More recently, in 2007, his current law firm helped us tremendously in dealing with the problems of an aging member of our family.... We put off doing a will for too long. The Karp Law Firm tackled this for us in such an effortless manner... We are ordinary folks, but were treated like royalty... The expertise, thoroughness, and integrity of this group is phenomenal..."

-Mr. and Mrs. A.H.
"We are very impressed by all the young women who worked with us. Their knowledge and kindness made us feel very comfortable to ask questions.

-Mr. and Mrs. Gerard Lawlor
"I have known Joe Karp since I worked at Palm Beach County Courthouse 30 years ago. He was an excellent attorney then and he still is!

-Mrs. Mary Jean Hancock
"Went to free seminar August 2013. Was very impressed with Joe and the fact that he showed such compassion and a fabulous sense of humor. The cookies were really good too. Zamara Rosete was the assistant case manager assigned to me. She showed great caring and patience in answering ALL of my questions and allaying ALL of my concerns. She gave me as much time as I required, never rushed me. The firm's knowledge and Zamara's personhood - PRICELESS. You made a very difficult process a lot easier. I am forever grateful and indebted to you and Zamara again and again."
-Ms. Rochelle K. Melamed
"You were wonderful. Everyone was courteous, gave us what we needed at this point and I love how honest they were (Adele and Gina) on our questions and no one abused the financial aspect as they were honest on what we needed without paying for things we didn't need at the time. We feel so much better to know we have The Karp Law Firm to look after us and answer any questions in the future without nickel and diming us. We loved everything and everyone in the law firm that helped us with our needs."
-Mr. and Mrs. Dennis Lauer
"I had tried unsuccessfully for a long time to get help for our situation. I went to your seminar hoping to get some different suggestions and wound up choosing The Karp Law Firm because I believed you could help. Before attending your elder care seminar, I had just about given up all hope of trying to get assistance for my wife and me. Your seminar convinced me that I needed to talk to you further about our somewhat unique circumstances. At our first meeting in your office, I explained that I was in a very difficult situation and had no idea what to do or where to turn. You said you understood and proceeded to ask a myriad of questions. By the end of the meeting, I was convinced that your firm could help. The entire process took a little over a year. In the end, The Karp Law Firm did everything as promised and the outcome was ideal. Your team's diligence in finding the best solution and extent of personal attention far exceeded my expectations. I want to especially thank Deeanna for her support, responsiveness and compassion on this case."
-Mr. Lewis Goulfine
"Genny Bernstein came to Temple Beth Israel in Port St. Lucie and spoke to our Sisterhood general membership. She was knowledgeable, professional and compassionate! When we needed help and advice I remembered her and called the office. Genny explained every aspect of our paperwork so thoroughly when we had questions. She could literally read our faces if she thought we did not understand something. We were totally pleased with our entire visit. Genny is an asset to your firm."

"Well-run firm. Responsive to clients' needs. And readily available to assist clients. Thank you for all you do."

-Ms. Joan Stambleck
"Let me start by saying that you have a great staff. Whenever I called over the years for information or how do I do something I was always treated with respect. This to me is the most important thing and may I stress important. Everyone I dealt with over the years was absolutely kind, caring and concerned with my situation. They were able to assist me with answers to my questions and concerns. May I take this opportunity for a special thank you to Deeanna Farrington (veterans affairs). Without her knowledge and concern we would never have gone this far. Once again, Mr. Karp, you have a great staff."
-Mr. Anthony Pedone
