History

Karen Galipeau Forner has fought with a fierceness and tenacity for over 25 years by representing her clients in workers’ compensation and workplace safety WISHA matters in Washington State. She initially gained valuable experience through her work as a Washington Assistant Attorney General for 14 years before transitioning into private practice focusing exclusively on defending employers in workers’ compensation, workplace safety issues and employment law.

In 2009, Karen ventured out on her own, forming K-Solutions Law. In 2017, Attorney Brian Padgett became a partner in the firm. Attorney Chris Addy and Attorney Erin O’Leary round out our team as we meet the challenges that face Washington State employers today.

Our firm’s reputation with the government, opposing counsel and our peers as tough but reasonable litigators serves our clients well. We are well-known and respected for our track record in negotiating strategic settlement agreements when appropriate and zealously representing employers in litigation when necessary.
