    John Karas failed to meet deadlines (inc. filing for temporary support, I had been an at home mom & had no income).He arrived late to court & was completely unprepared. At one point he accidentally handed me my entire file, I'm not sure he ever realized he misplaced it! The final "agreement" was completely in my ex-husband's favor. I'm now working with another lawyer to try to undo some of the damage done.This was a shocking and traumatic time for me, yet his office seemed very cold & uncaring.

    After 13 months of paying in excess of $12,000 and one day before my divorce trial, I learned that John Karas had failed to submit a complaint for absolute divorce & he was not prepared for trial. He refused to conduct an in person deposition of my ex- husband failed to file motions with the court or collect timely discovery. He told me to ignore that my child had bruises and signs of abuse when returning from custody exchanges. In my opinion, he did not care about nor respect the client.
