I am a local business professional and have solely used the Law Offices of Carolyn Holt Martino for several complex family law, custody, visitation and financial matters for over 10 years. Ms. Martino is a knowledgeable and experienced professional who supported my personal issues during the difficulties of divorce and was a strong litigator in the courtroom advocating on my behalf. The results obtained by Ms. Martino exceeded my expectations and she is an excellent attorney with fair minded and ethical practices.
I rarely ever am inspired to review any of the professionals that I come across, however; my experience with the Law offices of Carolyn Martino were so superlative and professional that I am compelled to share my outstanding results. Ms. Martino was knowledgeable and responsive, and assisted me with resolving a highly sensitive family law issue quickly and efficiently. I found her to be such a comforting sounding board during my difficult time, while always remaining professional and result oriented.
Carolyn did not stand by her fee agreement. Never received monthly statements of services & costs. My case was barely begun before I had to let her go due to she exhausted the $7500 retainer in less than 2 months. She befriended me and talked "girlfriend" talk and then charged me $360/hour to have the conversations. I regret ever hiring her.
Ok, never do I give 5 star ratings, but I can say without a doubt Carolyn exceeded all my expectations. She supported me, gave me a backbone when I had none. I grew during the process and accomplished even more goals than I had set out in the beginning. She knows her stuff and she's politely and eloquently relentless in the courtroom. Thank you Carolyn!
Carolyn Martino was referred to me by a neighbor who had been on the receiving end of her legal expertise in a divorce matter. He subsequently retained Ms. Martino to represent him in his next dissolution.
I can think of no higher praise than that for an attorney. She earned the respect and admiration of the opposition.
Ms. Martino began representing me in October 2011 when I came to her in panic and frustration because my then attorney was hopelessly ineffectual and unresponsive. She immediately took forceful action and accomplished attaining the financial support to which I was entitled. Throughout the duration of the litigation, she time and time again proved to be extremely ethical, ultra-intelligent, sympathetic to my distress, and extraordinarily effective in achieving a very satisfactory resolution.
Her vast experience in family law is like breathing to her.
She is a mighty warrior on behalf of her clients but never resorts to dirty, underhanded tactics.
She is an attorney with dignity and strength.
