My kids and I are very thankful to have Carla's team guide us and speak for us. I retained her firm four years ago. I was given all the options and she told me she would support my decision, but give me her advise on which direction to go to get what I was asking for. I finally decided to do it and she handled it like a pro while making me relax. What a talent! She got everything I was asking for! She also knew my finances were tight as a single mom and she would explain the cost of each option and let me chose. I feel I was well informed of everything that was taking place. I highly recommend Carla and her team.

Carla was my first experience with a lawyer of any kind and when my marriage was ending, I like so many others needed help with all the questions and concerns that surround this difficult process .
Carla and her office were truly amazing! She provides the perfect balance of compassion and toughness. She is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the law and fought very hard to get me a fair judgement.
I especially appreciated her honesty when it came to expectations. She would always give me the pro's and con's as well as financial ramifications of what she felt was worth fighting for or not which allowed me to make my own decisions based on her expert advice and past legal experiences.
Carla is honest, fair, compassionate, knowledgeable and as tough as they come. I would highly recommend her services.

I was at a loss with my prior attorney, had just had a bad experience in court and so my girlfriend researched and suggested Carla. I called and had an appointment that afternoon.
Carla and her staff were able to immediately put me at ease during a very emotional, confusing, and difficult time in my life. Carla always keeps me informed, gives honest answers to my questions, even thought I sometimes don't want to hear them, but she advises me of all available options, and sets realistic expectations. I always felt better prepared than my ex-wife when going into a mediation or court session.
My primary concerns are child custody, keeping my child in same school she's been attending since preschool and having a fair spousal support payment.
I'm very thankful for the hard work Carla and her team have done thus far on my case. Carla's representation has allowed me to worry less about my divorce and focus more on my daughter and getting our life back together.

Due to the extreme circumstances of my case, Mrs. Hartley had some real concerns about how we would prove what I was telling her, and had tried to tell the court, about how m ex was abusing my children. But she put her team to work on getting that proof and working with me, and six months later my kids are in my full time custody with only supervised visitation for my ex. I am extremely grateful that I walked into Mrs. Hartley's office and hired her. I never felt like anything was more important to her than my kids.

In my case, she was not trustworthy nor helpful. Created unnecessary litigation to bill hours. Follow your gut and intuition. Question her approach and process rather than trusting her professional judgement.
Ask her to give you options and then you decide the course of action. It is your life. You chose the direction.

Carla Hartley helped me with my divorce in 07. At that time I found her to be genuine, hardworking and very smart.....she listens. There is not enough room on this page to say all that I need to say about this woman. It is now 2015 and she continues to fight for me! WOW!! Would I recommend this lawyer? Oh yes, I certainly would and do.

Ms Hartley is worth every penny and more. She exceeded my expectations. She made things possible that I honestly never thought would ever happen. I went in reaching for some stars and she gave me the whole galaxy. Her entire staff is welcoming and create a family like environment but also are very professional. They are on top of everything and make you feel like you are their priority and only client. I completely trust Ms. Hartley and would recommend her to everyone. Ms Hartley and her staff are truly blessings to me and grateful to have them on my side.

Attorney Hartley & Attorney Maxwell did and excellent job preparing me for my case and for the mediation process. I will continue to use them for any future family law needs.

I hired Ms. Hartley for a child custody case in 2012. She was the fourth attorney and final attorney I hired since my child was born in 2008. Ms. Hartley came highly recommended by a couple of my friends and co-workers who had also used her services for family court with excellent results. Ms. Hartley is smart, knowledgeable and very well respected in the courtroom. She has a kind heart; she helps those who truly need it and fights the “good fight.” I had been concerned for my child’s safety, but my prior attempts with attorneys and court had not been able to keep him from harm, my custody case also became a child abuse case. Thanks to Ms. Hartley’s knowledge and ability to effectively fight for my child in court, my child is now safe and healing. I am grateful to Ms. Hartley more than I can ever express.

I placed my trust on Ms. Hartley from day one and she did not disappoint me. She fought to prevent my children's father from reversing overpayment of child support. This meant the world to me, as he had voluntarily overpaid due to a mutual agreement, then chose to use it against me. In addition, my ex husband received a severance package of 115,000.00 from his previous employer and insisted on modifying support based on earnings solely from unemployment benefits. Ms. Hartley demonstrated that he had been dishonest regarding his finances, and in addition, acquired the court's ruling for him to partially pay for my attorney fees, as his actions prompted me to seek legal counsel. Due to Ms. Hartley's dedication to my case, I will receive more support for one child than I had received for two children. I thank God for having placed Carla Hartley in my path when I was seeking legal advice and I pray for continued blessings for her.
