About Us

Karen FortierIn 2015, Karen Fortier was designated a “Super Lawyer” in Virginia Probate and Trusts and Estates. This is an honor given to less than 5% of all attorneys. It is awarded through a nomination and rigorous review process conducted by a highly respected national legal publishing company. For details, see www.SuperLawyers.com.

She also received the Martindale-Hubbell Client Recognition designation in 2015. This represents an acknowledgement of the quality of service and integrity of her office as seen through her clients’ eyes.

That honor follows Karen’s service as President of the Virginia Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (2013-2014); and her selection as a statewide “Leader in the Law” by Virginia Lawyers Media (2013). She also served as a gubernatorial appointee to the Commonwealth Council on Aging and the Virginia Public Guardianship and Conservatorship Advisory Board. Other public service has included positions on the Board of the Southeastern Virginia Alzheimer’s Association, Virginia Beach Mayor’s Commission on Aging, and the Board of the M.E. Cox Day Care for the Elderly.

She has been licensed to practice law in Virginia since 1982 and in Georgia since 1995. For the past twenty years, her practice has been focused upon estate and elder law. She has seen just about every kind of problem that can arise in probate and guardianship cases, and she knows what needs to be done about them. Karen Fortier sincerely enjoys helping and supporting her clients in difficult situations. Her ability to resolve problems has earned her the loyalty and appreciation of clients from coast to coast (some of whom she never met!).

Together with her talented staff, Ms. Fortier provides outstanding legal service in a warm yet thoroughly professional manner.
