Ann Carey is more than a lawyer. She is a person on a mission to help her clients through some of the most difficult moments they will ever face. She is kind and compassionate, but also honest. She pulls no punches, and can provide "tough love" when needed. All that aside, she is highly skilled as an attorney, and is always thinking several moves ahead. We trusted her with our son's liberty and his future, and she did better than we thought possible. I cannot recommend her enough.

Ann Carey's knowledge of the law, thorough research into my specific case and kind, considerate counsel helped me weigh my options and come to a very important decision with regards to a serious matter which helped me obtain the legal protection I needed.

Ann Carey was very responsive, caring, informative and gentle. I am glad Ann was on my side. I was always very informed of what was going on and how things were progressing. She definitely had my best interest in mind during my case. Ann Carey is an excellent attorney. She is thorough and dedicated. I could not recommend a more caring and knowledgeable individual (and firm) to help you or your loved ones. The very best attorney I have ever known. Much thanks and gratitude to Ann and her team.

Ann Carey and her associates have helped my family through a very emotionally difficult legal situation. Ann and her firm were not only considerate and responsive to our needs, but she was constantly providing us with guidance and advice that would help us even after she was no longer serving as our attorney. Her diligence and expertise are unparalleled and we have even recommended her to friends whom she has protected successfully.
I could not recommend a more caring and knowledgable individual (and firm) to help you or your loved ones.

I retained her firm with a Power of Attorney from my wife to simply evaluate - and only evaluate - my wife's case against her ex-husband. I never expected to be a part of that dispute if they would choose to take the case. A week later, their associate informed us that they would take my wife's case and gave my wife an appointment. I accompanied my wife to the appointment. During the appointment, the attorney insisted that I also sign a document that my wife had already signed. The only reason that I was given to get me to sign, later proved to be false. The document was the fee agreement. By doing so, they made me into their client against my wishes. At first, I gave them the benefit of doubt and brushed it off as an innocent mistake. After we paid thousands of dollars to their firm and were broke, we asked them to either withdraw or agree to a new financial term. There were no reason they could not withdraw. Soon, Ann Carey told me that she had agreed to the new financial proposal. Therefore, we continued with them. When the relationship was over, Ann Carey conveniently denied everything and demanded full payment at once.

I had the good fortune to work with Ann Carey during my Divorce proceedings. She helped me navigate through the daunting legal system, educated me about a legal process I knew nothing about and always kept my best interests on the forefront. I could not have hoped for a better outcome thanks to Ann's exemplary professionalism, expertise and guidance. I will be forever grateful.
I highly recommend Ann M. Carey and would seek her counsel again for prospective legal issues.

Ann and her firm handled my domestic partnership dissolution with such grace. After being faced with this unexpected legal situation, I hired Ann. She was so calm as she explained the process to me, consulted with and advised me about how to move forward, and then she and her team took care of business. She was a complete advocate for me while giving me realistic advice that resulted in the best outcome possible in what is a hard and emotional process. Her rate and billing process were completely transparent and fair. I never felt nickel and dimed, nor did my bill ever include anything unexpected. All my legal deadlines were met in more than a timely manner and I always knew exactly where we were in the process and what the plan was. Much thanks and gratitude to Ann and her team!

I never had any issues during the time I worked with Ann Carey. She was very responsive, caring and knowledgable. I was always very informed of what was going on and how things were progressing in my situation. Other colleagues of Ann's that I worked with, including administration and legal were excellent at what they did. She definitely had my best interest in mind during my case. I am very happy I choose her to represent me.

Ann helped my family during a very difficult time. She was kind, informative and gentle when my mother-in-law was in end stage cancer and we needed help with wills and directives. She also helped me subsequently with a power of attorney for my brother after he had a traumatic brain injury. I'm sure I would have been charged much more if I'd gone to another firm but Ann jumped in and did the work quickly and efficiently. You can't do better than Ann.

Ann is all about helping the little guy. In my case, Ann helped resolve a contractual dispute. It was outside here area of expertise, but Ann was able to step-up and get me a more than satisfactory outcome.
