Carlos Travers was able to save me a lot of money. He has a take charge aggressive attitude with the charisma to get his way in the court room and make the court think they got what they wanted. He didn't charge me a dime when he first looked at my case to see if he could help me. Being in the Military he gave me a huge discount and the leeway to set payments that would fit in my budget. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a lawyer that will tell you how it is and not sugar coat things.

Carlos helped me more than I can explain, and being active duty he even gave me a really good discount (him being a Marine veteran himself). He is a no nonsense type of guy and has a pitbull personality, he would defend you to the death no matter what the situation was and he takes his job serious. He's also extremely intelligent and knows the law inside and out. He filed all types of papers and typed them up for me next day. He's always on time (that's a Marine thing) I've even been able to give others legal advice just from the things he's taught me. I don't have anything negative to say about him. He was like a mentor to me during my whole situation and definitely cared about my case and my well being to. He's someone who I would strive to be like in life. BOTTOM LINE if you need a lawyer Carlos is your guy. He will continue to remain my lawyer as long as he is practicing law.

I had a very short fused situation involving child custody and support. A friend highly recommended Mr. Tavares, and his staff. Within a short period of time Mr. Tavares produced the results I needed. He's an aggressive attorney that listens and FIGHTS FOR HIS CLIENT.
Mr. Tavares is extremely well versed he is on military pay and structure. In the past, I have encountered many attorneys who are not.
Mr. Tavarez is the attorney you want to hire! I would use his services again without hesitation.

Carlos helped me get exactly what I wanted. This guy is a bulldog...will not take no for an answer and definitely got me up to my A game.
Unusual for the father to have full custody these days, but sure enough he took charge and got everything I could ask for. Overall, he made my time in court easy and had me well prepared for all angles. I recommend this lawyer to any and everyone who is going thru a divorce, child custody, and/or separation. I'd use him again in a heartbeat if I ever have to.

Carlos knew the laws and established a plan on how to get there. He lead me through all the laws,child custody hearing and I got me everything I wanted . Something not easily done as a male raising two children.

I am so pleased to be able to give Mr. Tavares the highest recommendation possible. He handled my case with a straightforward, no nonsense approach. He is detail oriented and thorough with all of the paperwork as well as being well spoken and confident in the courtroom. Mr. Tavares knows family law and most importantly, he cares about getting the best possible outcome for his clients .

No one wants to see their family fall apart and face separation, divorce, and then child custody. But sometimes you can not stop the inevitable.
I was referred to Carlos Tavares from a good friend of mine and he has now been my lawyer for over 5 years. I had a particularly complicated case. It involved obtaining a restraining order, supervised visitations for the father of my child, as well as the separation of property, divorce, and child custody. Just thinking back on all this is overwhelming, but I can say that Carlos will not take no for an answer when it comes to protecting the best interest of the child and the party that he represents.
I've walked into the courts without an attorney before and it feels like you're walking into the slaughter house with no representation or hope of coming out being heard. But it's a totally different feeling walking in knowing Carlos will be there to defend you. In every area he represented me, we had victory. I have full custody of my son, I got the full amount of child support/alimony, my son was protected through supervised visitation and my son and I are enjoying a healthy relationship now because of it.
If you're looking for someone who has morals, values and cares for the rights of those who are struggling to do what's right, Carlos is your lawyer. He will not let you down. He will do all of his research and come to court fully prepared to fight for you, and he comes to win.
I'm very thankful for the years of representation I have had with Carlos. He was worth every penny spent and then some to have the peace in my house with my son that I have today.

Great is an understatement. He was always on top of my case and didn't miss a beat. He was always very forward and made everything clear. He kept me well informed after every event and responded quickly to all questions. He was able to get me everything I wanted and kept me out of trouble. If you want a cut throat, in your face, reliable lawyer, I recommend this Carlos. He doesn't play around with the little bullshit. He is very blunt. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer.

If you obtain Carlo J Tavares III as your lawyer, then you can not obtain a better attorney. Carlo Tavares is my Johnnie Cochran and that's a compliment in the way he stays on top of my case until we are victorious. He is second to none in handling your case. Carlo keeps you very much informed. You never have to try and track him down because he calls you. I trust him with every decision we discuss. His interllect is over and above any lawyer that I have ever had in the pass. Even after my case, he checks up on you to see how things are going. Whomever obtain him, please schedule an appointment him before making your final decision. My name is Rodney T. Lloyd from Maryland.

Carlos was the best lawyer we have ever had or met. He has since interacted with us upon occassion concerning legal and other issues. He is down to earth sporting an average Joe Q. Public outlook and performance, thereby taking the task of advocate for each of his clients cases seriously and professionally.
