An Experienced Family Law Professional

Vervaecke Law and Mediation utilizes skill and experience to advocate for your rights and interests in court, but begins each case in search of an individualized solution that avoids the emotional stress and financial expense of a trial, if that is what is best for you.

Karen encourages clients to look to the future and to plan for life after divorce. She has an extensive network of independent experts & child specialists, parenting consultants, financial advisors, real estate appraisers, counselors, and other family law specialists available to clients.

An Experienced Mediator and Arbitrator

The mediation process is becoming increasingly popular as a way of obtaining desired results, keeping control with the parties rather than placing their future in the hands of judge.

There are often benefits to pursing mediation instead of litigation, in many cases. These include: minimal exposure to the court system, no third-party agendas, substantially reduced costs, increased options, control over the process and outcome, mutually satisfactory results, reduced time, confidentiality, and reduced animosity and frustration. Vervaecke Law and Mediation has been mediating cases since 1993 in family law, civil matters and residential foreclosures.

An Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney

At Vervaecke Law and Mediation we defend your rights and strive to mitigate penalties and reduce the charges whenever possible. An arrest turns your world upside down. Karen clearly communicates to you what is happening in your case, and provides compassion, diligence and dedication.

Criminal allegations or arrests can result in serious penalties, including jail time, fines, and a lasting criminal record. Whether you are under investigation, were recently arrested, or believe that you may be charged with a crime, it is never too early to seek an experienced criminal defense attorney. As both a former Douglas County Public Defender and a member of the Criminal Justice Act panel in Federal Court, Karen L. Vervaecke has represented defendants at every stage of criminal proceedings in County, District and Federal courts.
