I had the privilege of working with Karl on a very complicated real estate transaction. There was nothing easy with this one. Karl is knowledgeable, professional, driven and most of all he really cares about his clients. I have worked with many attorneys over my career and Karl is cut from a special cloth

Kark Dowden helped me through the sale process for my Mother's Co-op and was incredibly supportive through every step of the process. He responded to any question and concern I had immediately. I recommend Karl wholeheartedly, he was a pleasure to work with and always did so with a smile. He made you feel like you were his most important client. I cannot thank him enough.

5 stars! Karl was super easy to work with and very accommodating! He was open, honest, organized, and walked me through the home buying process. Almost all of our communication was done via email, which is very helpful as a busy professional. Spoke to Karl by phone maybe 2x in total, but as a millennial this worked wonders for me. He's available via email and text. Karl is down-to-earth and honest with his work. He was knowledgeable and laid-back during closing! Looking to work with Karl again in the future! Highly recommended! Excellent follow-through and timely response!

I have had the pleasure of working closely with Karl and his team on complex real estate items over the past several months. Karl Dowden Law is very knowledgeable, diligent and professional. As a client, it is always important to have trust and transparency with your attorney. I have received both throughout the process of both a sale and a purchase (which in nature is a complex duo.) I highly recommended the services of Karl Dowden Law and feel more than comfortable referring my family, friends and colleagues to work with this team.
