Highest Recommendation
Attorney Buscarini is one of the very best Divorce and child custody/support lawyers I know. I am not only a client but also a lawyer and I refer all of my client's with this need to her. She was patient, kind and understanding during my divorce and also was aggressive when needed. Divorce is an emotional time and sometimes the person in it is not always thinking clearly about what is best for them. During those times she was honest with me and didn't allow my emotions to make the wrong decisions. I highly recommend Attorney Buscarini.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Carrie exceeded my expectations in so many ways. She is wise and professional, listens well and is easy to talk to. She is patient and kind, yet firm when she needs to be. She is amazing at catching details others would have missed and when dealing with opposing parties, she is respectful while still getting her point across. I can't recommend her highly enough. It was a blessing to have her as my lawyer and I believe God used her to help me through a very difficult time.

Promises Kept
I found Carrie through this website and chose her after an initial consult where I explained my situation and fears of the divorce/ custody process and she made my concerns her own and was my advocate every step of the way. Carrie never relented in fighting for my desire to spend an equal amount of time with my son and made certain this happened. She made my best interests a priority and advised me every step of the way and constantly provided me with updates on the process as well as next steps and what to expect as I moved through this trying time of my life. I could not think of a better and wiser choice for legal representation when the most important parts of your life are at stake. Give her a call and you will share my opinions without a doubt.

Guardian of Families
Without any hesitation I completely recommend Carrie & her firm to represent anyone. From the initial meeting to the closing of the case- she never waivered in her core values to provide exceptional counsel. I always appreciated Carrie's approach to answering questions: First the law was stated, the application thereof, and the potential outcome based on all factors at hand. I always felt like I had adequate advice to make the best decision with Carrie's full support behind me. Carrie was always genuinely interested in the well being of my children. Kasie- was very thorough and every concern or question was always addressed. Despite the unfortunate situation my children & I had to go through, It was a real pleasure to work with Carrie & Kasie- they will be missed.

Assertive, Compassionate, & Perseverant
Carrie is the type of lawyer who will get the job done no matter how long, difficult, or complicated the case. Carrie is willing to take the time to recognize all the minute details to create the bigger picture. This also allows Carrie to be organized and prepared against any defense. Carrie also provide me with alternative options so I could have all the facts before making a decision. Carrie was also cognizant of my children's feelings and best interests and put forth their considerations as well. This was extremely important for me to have someone who's values matched mine regarding my children/. Carrie was always there for me- she was timely in her responses if I had a question. I always felt supported when I made decisions. Carrie was not afraid of the obstacles that were involved in my case; she was the one who took the initiative regarding open communication and trying to resolve the issues. If you want a lawyer who is bold, decisive, willing to listen, ready to find solutions, and compassionate to your individual situation-- then Carrie is your lawyer.

Client Testimonial
"Reeling from the shock, grief, and sorrow that accompanied my discovery of infidelity after decades of marriage, and then subsequent abandonment, I discovered Attorney Carrie Buscarini. At a time in my life when I was trying to make sense of the insensible and navigate through a long, contentious divorce, Carrie provided the calming influence and guiding hand I so desperately needed. Quite simply, Carrie is the epitome of what every family law attorney should aspire to be. She is intelligent, tenacious, diligent, thorough and intuitive. Her ability to anticipate possible strategy and maneuvers by opposing counsel never ceased to amaze me, as did her ability to explain complicated legal concepts in layman’s terms. Carrie’s office was run like a well-tuned machine, much to the credit of her paralegal Kasie. Emails and calls were always promptly returned in the most courteous of manners; no question was left unanswered and no concern was ever minimized or ignored." "Personally, Carrie was patient to a fault, a calming influence and guiding hand on my worst days. She was a relentless advocate for my needs and never failed to inquire about the welfare of my two adult daughters. On days I felt discouraged and hopeless she encouraged me and commented upon my strength. Her kindness, concern, and empathy were palpable. Although she would always say I was "the boss" when it came to my case and decisions that needed to be made, being her client was MY privilege. I hold Carrie in the highest regard. I am proud to say Attorney Carrie Buscarini represented me." Diane

Very satisfied with our representation
Everyone at the lawyer's office was very responsive. Attorney Buscarini effectively represented us for an adoption hearing. She was upfront with us with challenges, and moved forward, giving us excellent guidance along the way. End result, I was able to legally adopt (my stepson). It was an extensive process and she always explained everything and answered our questions. There was no guess work in the invoices either, as it very easy to understand and and feel comfortable how time was being spent.

Great attorney
Attorney Buscarini did an amazing job representing me. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, thorough and detail oriented, but she is professional and caring as well. She and her staff were very quick to answer any questions, address all concerns and handle any unforeseen situation that may have occurred. They always had my best interest in mind. Carrie is kind and compassionate, but also firm when needed. I was very fortunate to have her represent me.

Exactly the lawyer I needed
In the beginning, I told Carrie I wanted a fair divorce. Over the 3 years it took to finally get it done, I came to realize that very few people end up feeling like their divorce was fair. I did not come to this realization quickly or easily, and Carrie showed patience and compassion for my confusion. In the end, I decided that honor was really what I wanted. To feel like I got consideration without resorting to hurtful tactics. No, I didn't get everything I thought I should, but neither did my x. And I sleep well knowing that Carrie and I were compassionate and professional through the most difficult time of my life. Carrie's guidance, especially early on, was invaluable to me. She showed empathy to me while maintaining a professional barrier between me and my x's attorney. She was strong, but never bullied or resorted to hitting below the belt. The same can not be said of my x's attorney. So if you want to spend the rest of your life with a clean conscience about how your divorce was handled, Carrie is a good option for you.

Professional and Responsive
During my traumatic divorce, I needed a responsive and effective advocate. Several colleagues (including lawyers) recommended Attorney Buscarini, and she performed wonderfully. She always responded to my emails and telephone calls within a day or two (in contrast to my spouse's attorney, who took a week or more to respond). She was unfailingly informative and supportive. She frequently reminded me that I was in charge, but she supplied plenty of expertise and direction while I made those decisions. Her paralegal proved efficient and helpful. They copied me on every piece of correspondence so I knew what was occurring throughout the process. Enthusiastically recommended

Divorce Proceedings
The Buscarini Law Firm represented me in a recent divorce proceeding. Her work was excellent. She was fair, decent and brought the matter to a satisfactory conclusion with a minimum of harm to both parties. There was no unneeded drama. Our conversations were pleasant, humorous, brief and productive. I recommend Carrie Buscarini without reservation.

Professional and Compassionate
I found Carrie through a friend of mine and it was one of the best decisions I could have made. During a very tough divorce, she was able to give me all of the information I needed and went above and beyond to make sure I was safe. She answered all of my many questions I had in a very timely manner and was very compassionate. She is sensitive to your situation but will tell you what you need to hear and give you all options, if available. I highly recommend Carrie as she is very knowledgeable and will fight for her clients.

The Buscarini Law Firm
I had the unfortunate experience of going through a divorce in 2018. I was referred to the Buscarini law firm by a family friend. From the initial consultation, Attorney Buscarini was the consummate professional, at the same time, making me feel like a priority. With this being my first(and hopefully only) experience with divorce, she very patiently walked me through the process, and was very forthcoming with answers to questions that I had. Overall, I was extremely satisfied with the services provided, and would gladly recommend Attorney Buscarini to anyone needing a divorce attorney.
