Carolyn represented me (a previously divorced father of three) in a modification application. She knows the law well and found several legal avenues to pursue the changes we sought. Carolyn listened well, was very responsive, worked quickly and was pragmatic. She will discuss the pros and cons of an approach and advise you when you are possibly giving up too much; but in the end, she will follow your lead if you feel strongly about something. I found Carolyn easy and pleasant to work with. I also thought her billing was extremely fair. I strongly recommend Carolyn for your family matter.

Carolyn carefully listened to my objectives in going through the divorce process; clearly outlined my options and carefully explained the pros and cons of each. While she clearly advocated certain positions that she felt would be to my benefit, when I made a decision she vigorously supported it.

There is much hurt and fear associated with divorce. You need at once someone who is skilled in the legal profession,honest compassionate, tough and sensitive. I found all of these qualities in Carolyn Daly. She encouraged me to fight when I thought the odds and the decision went against us. In our appeal justice for me and justice in all finally arrived. I am grateful to Carolyn and her assistant Donna who always made me feel welcome and allied and safe. If you are looking for a lawyer with brain and heart and soul. Look no further, Help will arrive. Thank you Carolyn and Donna.

Aside from divorce having been one of the most excruciatingly painful experiences in my life, it was also one of the most vulnerable. Not only was I devastated that my long-term marriage was ending, I was terrified at the prospect of having to navigate through a legal system that was completely foreign to me. Initially, I selected a large well-known firm to represent me and being in uncharted waters, I did whatever I was instructed to do. Being vulnerable in the wrong hands can be costly - emotionally and financially. My adversary in the divorce matter was a highly educated, extremely successful and skilled litigator; a formidable foe. However, it was not my litigious former husband that was nearly my undoing; it was the unsavory character of the big firm lawyers I had hired and their too-often unethical approach to practicing law that compounded my agony and invited excessive, prolonged and contentious litigation. With a bleak history of more than six years of brutal litigation and three devastatingly disappointing law firms, I emotionally limped into Carolyn’s office with a complete lack of confidence in lawyers and doubting my own ability to wisely choose a suitable attorney.
From day one, I found Carolyn to be respectful, experienced and knowledgeable, warm and reassuring, confident, undaunted and tireless. She always returned my calls and/or emails in a timely manner and her other hand, Donna, is highly skilled, funny and extremely helpful as well. Carolyn’s mind works as rapidly as she speaks. She quickly connects dots, develops strategies and presents several viable possibilities right on the spot, leaving you awe-inspired. Carolyn practices with integrity, brilliance, compassion and fairness; yielding results that leave you believing there will be life after divorce and it will be good. You have a voice with her; your thoughts and input matter. She will never gratuitously fan the flames of emotions with either party, nor will she attempt to eviscerate your adversary unless necessary. She will fight fairly and she will fight hard in order for you to walk away from this process whole and with a promising future post-divorce.
It is also very important to mention that Carolyn bills honestly (an enormous relief after having experienced the polar opposite with prior firms). She does not stretch out the process of litigation, nor does she assign multiple people to a one person task in order to increase billing; quite the contrary. Because Carolyn sincerely cares about her clients, she will diligently work to resolve your issues so that you are able to move on with your life as soon as possible. In Carolyn you get that rare lawyer who never lost the burning desire to make a positive difference in the lives of those who are hurting. She still remembers why she went to law school and remains driven by such.
Carolyn actually enjoys her job and genuinely cares about helping people. You will see it in her enthusiastic and strong representation of you and feel it in her compassionate, yet firm and honest guidance. Five stars are not enough to adequately rate the superb services and results I received. I trusted Carolyn with my future and she gave my life back to me.
Footnote: After a contentious and bitter divorce, my ex-spouse and I were able to move on with our respective personal lives. We have since become very good friends and enjoy family gatherings with our adult children and other relatives. If I had not had the good fortune to retain Carolyn, the bridge to building a healthy friendship post-divorce may never have been possible (She does not make a bad situation worse). Divorce is an arduous and heartbreaking ordeal at best, but it should never be further complicated by unprincipled and/or indifferent counsel; two concerns you will never have when represented by Carolyn N. Daly.

Carolyn Daly is an all around exceptional attorney. She is extremely knowledgable, down to earth, and has a keen understanding of the law. She genuinely cared and always took the time to listen and answer all of my questions and concerns. She puts you at ease and is very easy to talk to. I always felt safe, protected and empowered after a discussion with her. Carolyn and her hard working team walked me through every step of my stressful and very emotional divorce case. They kept me up to date and informed on every detail. My phone calls or emails were always responded to in a timely manner. She and her trustworthy team guided and supported me with genuine compassion during what was arguable the most difficult time in my life. Collectively, they made the divorce process as simple and painless as possible. Carolyn’s strength not only lies in her ability to confidently guide her clients through the process she’s equally as confident and brilliant in the courtroom. Carolyn has good morals, a strong work ethic and is very detail oriented. She is genuinely a strong advocate for whats best for the client. A big thank you to Amy, Donna and Christine for all their help in resolving my case. And, a deep heart felt thank you to Carolyn for all her amazing guidance. If your looking for a tenacious, knowledgable, attorney choose Carolyn Daly and if you don’t
just hope you don't see her on the other side of the court room!!

I was happy to have Carolyn as my divorce lawyer, she is very knowledgeable about the matrimonial law and gives quick and accurate advise on specific and intricate situations that you might be going through. Her staff is very nice and efficient as well. If I wasn't limited financially I would have stuck with her advice to go to trial, however made more sense to just compromise to finalize my divorce so that I could move on. I would definitely recommend Carolyn.

I can very enthusiastically recommend Carolyn as a bright, knowledgeable, compassionate, and ethical attorney. She is the best!

I unfortunately had a marriage that failed and asked my wife for a divorce. I will never forget the day I walked into Carolyn’s Office the embarrassment I felt. I was terrified and knew that I would see someone I knew. My marriage failed and this is not something I was used too. Things changed quickly after my initial discussion with Carolyn. I felt comfortable that I was not the 1st to be divorced and will not be the last.
Carolyn’s confidence in my situation and the way to move forward empowered me to keep my chin up, stay positive and move through this incredibly difficult period of my Life. Not only was I impressed with Carolyn’s legal acumen but her eidetic memory proved to be a key attribute as my eyes glazed over with Legalize. At times I just tuned out but Carolyn and her team provided a consistent support mechanism that helped me soldier on. I can’t say enough about the entire team at the law office. Donna, Christine and Mary all have their key qualities.
My divorce is finalized and I can assure you that I did not win because no one wins in a divorce. You just get through it. Carolyn and her team got me through it and now I feel that I did the best I could do and certainly had the best representation I could have had.
One Note: Carolyn moves a million miles an hour. Feel comfortable reining her in at times and saying slow down or this is what I want. It’s important and she gets it!!!

From the moment I met Carolyn Daly, I knew that she was the right attorney to handle my divorce. Her professionalism, knowledge and experience are unparallel. While Carolyn was determined to get me a fair and reasonable settlement, she never strayed from her core values or make promises she could not keep. Carolyn and her exceptional staff help me navigate the confusing and often frustrating court process while managing my expectations every step of the way. With her dedicated network of professionals, Carolyn fought for me until the very end. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome of my divorce and would not hesitate to use Carolyn Daly for any post-divorce related issues in the future.
