Karli Viher

Karli joined the Goodsell Oviatt Litigation Team in 2022, and immediately put her communication skills, case load management experience, and organizational abilities to work. She holds a Batchelor of Science degree in Justice Studies from Arizona State University and will attend the University of South Dakota Knudson School of Law in the fall of 2023 to earn her Juris Doctor degree.

While attending Arizona State University, Karli worked for a law firm and performed duties which included communicating with clients, managing schedules, assisting in drafting and filing legal motions, letters, and briefs. Coordinating with court staff, she assisted in discovery production, defense interviews, and court dates.

Also, a part of Karli’s undergraduate experiences includes leadership roles in various extracurricular activities. As Chapter President of Alpha Phi at Arizona State University, she supported and supervised 7 executive departments and 300 members, collaborated with ASU faculty and organizations, and built community relations through volunteer work at numerous agencies. Additionally, for Alpha Phi, she was Vice-President of Marketing and Director of Recruitment.

As a volunteer, Karli worked with Feed My Starving Children, which is a non-profit organization that coordinates the packaging and distribution of food to people in developing nations. In 2021, she helped plan and organize Alpha Phi’s Red Dress Gala, which raised over $65,000 for women’s heart health.

For relaxation and fun, wake surfing with her family at the lake and snowboarding give balance to a very busy and goal orientated life.

Combining these many academic, work, volunteering, and personal experiences, contributes to Karli’s ability to be a good listener and client advocate, who pays attention to details that help clients know someone is concerned about their case. Karli says that the favorite thing about her job day to day is “knowing that I am helping to make a difference in someone’s life.”
