Shelley really had my back through all of my custody related court hearings. She not only supported me by utilizing her knowledge in parental rights cases, but I also felt comforted and understood which was really important to me. She is also very laid back yet professional so I always felt comfortable around her, but at the same time felt she always had me and my child's best interest at heart.

She did an excellent job representing me and writing the new deed. She was aware of some problems at the closing and represented me very well.

Shelley represented our family with as sale of the property. Her attention to detail was very important to us. She tied of the loose ends which made for a relatively smooth closing. Would recommend Shelly and will use her for any future work in Maine.
Her great work made us at ease!

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
I have known of Attorney Carter for a few years, but did not have a case with her until last year. She certainly was a good advocate for her client and worked hard for his benefit. She was on top things and I would highly recommend her in any family/divorce related matter.

I endorse this lawyer. Shelley Carter is top-notch. She has an unwavering commitment to the well-being of her clients. She is talented in the courtroom, and approaches her cases with a combination of creativity and passion.
