Karen J. Levitt is the principal of the Levitt Law Group, a small client centered law firm in Chelmsford, MA that concentrates in family law. An attorney with over 30 years’ experience, Karen applies a settlement focused approach to divorce, probate, and other family law conflicts. Karen is a seasoned collaborative law attorney, mediator, and litigator. She also acts as a guardian ad litem and parenting coordinator.
Karen’s interest in out of court alternatives known as alternative dispute resolution (ADR), is as a result of being a litigator for many years, and understanding there may be better ways for some clients to solve conflicts than going to court. Karen brings her skills in negotiation and dispute resolution to all of her cases whether they be litigation, mediation, or collaborative law. She also shares her knowledge with others by being active in designing and presenting educational programs in collaborative practice and mediation to attorneys and allied professionals both locally and nationally, as well as to the public.
In addition to practicing law, Karen is involved in many organizations and is an active member of the legal community. She has also published numerous articles, some of which are posted on our website.
