Excellent Divorce Lawyer
Ms. Chase worked tirelessly on my divorce case, always there to answer my questions, no matter how many times I contacted her. She helped me get the spousal support I was seeking, which I needed after being a stay-at-home mom for 14 years. The advice she gave me about the big picture helped me make it through this chapter in my life.

More than just a lawyer!
Carolyn represented me in my divorce, and was always available to talk and advise me, no matter what time of day. She worked well with opposing counsel and was able to make this difficult time of my life less stressful. I've already referred her to a good friend of mine.

Good Advise and Professional
Divorce: Carolyn listened to my concerns and offered several recommendations. She was thorough, thoughtful, and detail-oriented. Carolyn would reply to emails, voicemails, etc. in a timely manner (usually within 24 hours). Very pleased with outcome.
