Immigration lawyer Evelyn Ackah knows Karin McCaskill as a mentor, client and friend:

Karin is a caring, warm and supportive mentor. She was able to find the best and the brightest, and put them together to create her team. I was matched with her in the Women's Executive Network. She has been a very pivotal part of my career development. But most importantly for me, she has been my friend.
