Google Review By Alane Maloney: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ I found Karen Radakovich to be very professional, easy to work with and thorough. I was not sure, going in, that I needed a lawyer but in the end she not only helped me with the problems I was having with the condominium homeowners association but went the extra mile for me. Karen did her research into an older unrelated issue and found that some legal issues concerning my condo from years before had been settled in my favor. I was never notified and had no idea. It was a little complicated, at least to me, but the short of it is her research found that the condo belonged to me instead of the bank as I had previously believed. In my opinion, I cannot speak highly enough of Karen.
