Karen began working in the legal field in 1976 as a legal secretary. She graduated with honors in the second Westminster Paralegal Certification Program in 1983 and has continued her employment as a paralegal to date. Karen is very experienced in estate planning, probate, trust administration as well as liquor licensing.
Her long association with the compliance division of the Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control offers clients valuable assistance in obtaining liquor licenses from start to finish – including the preparation and approval of applications by the UDABC staff and appearing before the Commissioners for the issuance of licenses. Clients in this area of practice includes representation of Utah’s major athletic facilities, national hotel and restaurant chains, and many of the State’s bars and restaurants.
Twenty years of volunteer service with the Girl Scouts of Utah, chairing the Fund Development Committee and various annual fundraising events, highlight the community involvement of Karen and her husband, Tom.
Karen’s hobbies include spending time with Tom on the tennis court or chasing a dimpled white ball around a golf course, where Karen also occasionally competes in UGA sanctioned tournaments.
