"I have the deepest appreciation for Karen. Throughout her work with our organization over the last 7 years she has guided and protected us on so many levels. As a small non- profit yet multi-faceted organization, we have encountered a wide range of challenges during our growth ranging from personnel to real estate development. Aside from the obstacles presented by others, Karen has provided us with the necessary tools to operate smartly as a business. Additionally, Karen has included our staff in various training and informational seminars that have ensured that our organization is up to date in changing legal issues. As our legal counsel, Karen is best described as an ‘iron fist wrapped in a velvet glove with the patience of a saint’."- Jeff H. former Executive Director of a
"Karen Sloat has been my advocate twice. The first time was a very unpleasant litigation and she won the case. The second was negotiating legal documents with a large corporation where my intellectual property and livelihood were at stake in a merger/acquisition. Large corporate lawyers and prosecuting attorneys can be so intimidating, but Karen was always building my confidence in my ability to take a stand and assuring me to not worry. I was able to sleep at night knowing that Karen was my defense. I don’t know what I would have done without her. She is my ‘forever attorney.’ If you want a knowledgeable AND compassionate attorney – you want Karen."- Dr. Wendy F. Executive and Business Owner
"I am on the board of a nonprofit charity in Indio and recently we had a potential HR problem that could affect the entire board. Karen Sloat was recommended as an attorney who specializes in nonprofits and HR issues. Ms. Sloat was very responsive and met with members of the executive committee in a very timely manner. She listened to our concerns, understood them and then put forth a number of options, the consequences of following each option and what she would recommend. We decided that Ms. Sloat’s recommendations were the best and followed her advice, which proved to be correct. She followed up and made herself available for any additional questions or concerns we might have. This greatly relieved the anxiety of the board and we all felt that we were in competent hands going forward. We couldn’t be happier with her representing us. Thank you, Ms. Sloat."- Bill D.
