Reasons to hire Ms. Aschoff
Carolann Aschoff was my attorney in my recently completed divorce. Although my divorce was extremely amicable and my ex-wife and I had pretty much decided and agreed on everything prior to the papers even being filed I felt the need to have an attorney review our property settlement agreement to ensure that I was protected and I chose Ms. Aschoff. Ms. Aschoff was extremely knowledgeable and ensured that I was protected in all aspects of my divorce. Additionally, she was extremely patient with me regarding all the questions that I had during the process and explained everything to me in a way that was easily understandable while making me feel comfortable with the decisions that I had to make throughout the process. I would highly recommend Ms. Aschoff to anyone who is in need of an attorney for any family matter.

Carolann Aschoff - Highly recommend
Carolann was recommended to me by a family friend who also utilized her services for a divorce, and I could not have been happier with the decision I made to hire her as my attorney. Carolann was very professional, responsive, and knowledgeable. She was quick to anticipate my needs, and was excellent with following up on issues as needed. I am very happy with the services that were provided in my situation, and I would recommend Carolann to anyone seeking legal representation.

Fantastic Attorney and Staff
Ms. Aschoff has been my go-to attorney for over a decade. From day 1 to year 11+, she and her staff have always treated me as if I am their #1 client, and they gave my case the time and priority it needed. Ms. Aschoff has gone above and beyond, regardless of the day or night, she'll respond to my inquiries. She's an amazing attorney and person all around. I couldn't have gotten through some of the scariest and darkest moments of my divorce a child custody battles without her experience and help.

Sole Custody
When my family, friends, and prior attorney's kindly stated that I would never obtain sole custody of my child, Carolann gave me both support and confidence that it was possible. Anyone involved in a child custody case will agree that this will be the most challenging experience in your lifetime, and you need more than an attorney and family members to just to make it through the day. Carolann was more than just legal council, she was truly vested to help the best interest of my child and was ALWAYS available. Carolann would have her staff contact me even after hours, weekends, or when she would take vacation to ensure that I had her firm's full support. Her staff was well acclamated with my case, so I was not paying for an individual, I had a full team supporting me every step of the way. Carolann has extensive knowledge in family law, and this is most evident when she is by your side in a courtroom. I never felt like my decisions were forced upon me, Carolann explained all possible outcomes of important decisions and shared her prior experiences to work up to a favorable end result. My son and I were given a second chance in life as I obtained sole custody. Carolann is responsible for making this happen and we are forever grateful. Your legal counsel selection will forever change your child's well being and your path in life, so do not pass on the opportunity to work with Carolann Aschoff's firm when it matters most. I am confident that I would have never been able to obtain sole custody with out the help of Carolann, and she continues reach out to me months after the outcome to see how my child and I are doing. That in itself can support my claim that she is more than just legal representation.

Well experienced, honest and gets the job done!
I did a google search, trying to find a good lawyer, through reviews who would be able to help me get and maintain custody of both my sons from my ex. After, researching and reading reviews, I settled and contacted Carolann for a consultation. I was very open and honest with her and she did the same also. After speaking, she told me I had a very strong case of gaining full custody of both my children. She collected all of my documentation, poured over it and compiled an expertly crafted rebuttal and case for my virtual hearing. On the day of my hearing, Carolann was nothing short of amazing! I was awarded fully Physical and Legal custody of both my boys. If I had only known her in the past to guide and walk me through some of my previous family dealing! I cannot say enough great thing about Ms./Mrs. Aschoff and her staff. I am eternally grateful and if the need arises in the near future, her number is on "speed dial!". My children are now in a much better, safer environment! Thank you Carolann, this could not have possible without you and your team!

An Excellent Firm - Expertise, Honesty, Integrity, Expedience
I have worked with Ms. Aschoff and her associate Mr. Sevasta and have been exceedingly impressed and satisfied with their legal advice, expertise, representation, honesty and integrity. I first sought Ms. Aschoff's counsel in 1996 for divorce representation and again for additional child support issues in 2013. In both cases, I felt in competent hands with Ms. Aschoff and Mr. Sevasta. I was kept abreast of all developments in a professional and timely fashion. I was offered sound legal advice on all the issues which led to realistic and expedient settlements.

Excellent Family attorney
Ms. Aschoff was very professional and beyond patient with my elderly aunt and uncle. She answered all their questions regarding wills, and everything was taken care of in a timely fashion. Her staff as well were a pleasure to do business with.
