I had 3 lawyers before Ms Carlin and nobody worked as hard for me as she did. She believed in me and she fought hard for me. Ms Carlin cared about me and my baby and I will always be thankful for her.
My son and I hired Ms Carlin on a child support case. She recommended a "termination" as a course of action and advised us it would take about 3 months to go through the process. We specifically hired her to obtain the "termination". She never answered our telephone calls and only answered some of our emails. She told us things and then later denied saying them. She told my son he would not need to prepare for hearings before the judge and then when he appeared, the Judge asked him questions. She told him he would not need to appear on a court hearing and then the morning of the hearing, while he was in class, sent him a text advising him to let the judge know he was there and his attorney was in another court. The Office of Attorney General filed an intervention and she told us their filing was moot and to ignore it. We later found out the OAG intervention was not moot and needed to be addressed. After over 6 months of failing to get the judge to sign the termination order, I contacted 3 other attorneys for their opinion on obtaining a termination order. They all said, in their opinion and based on the facts of my son's case, they did not see any way that a termination order could be obtained or signed by a judge. Finally, after over 7 months and thousands of dollars paid in attorney fees, we terminated our relationship with Ms Carlin. We actually received nothing for our money other than frustration and heartache.
Thank you for all your hard work. You were so honest and kept me informed about the entire process. You really cared about my case and me and my son. We are doing wonderful and I can never thank you enough.
Ms. Carlin represented my son in a custody dispute. I can honestly say everything she did was with his best interest at heart. She brought calm and peace to him during a time that was confusing and potentially very traumatic. She clearly loves children and the law, and I feel blessed that she was gifted to my son.
Ms. Carlin transacted my divorce in an extremely professional manner while keeping me informed and making sure the personal aspects of the situation were considered and given proper attention. She kept me calm with her cool professionalism and made a difficult situation so easy to resolve. I sincerely thank her for her prompt and expert assistance.
