    • Benjamin Hale Carafiol

      Ms. Gotwals has a great deal of experience fighting debt collectors and credit reporting agencies as a consumer advocate. She brings this experience to the family law realm, zealously representing her client's interests as they deal with the difficult issues they face. Joelle is hard-working, knowledgeable, and dedicated. I highly endorse Ms. Gotwals.
