Great Divorce Attorney
I was represented by Ms. Carrithers for my divorce. Lavanya is skilled, efficient, and doesn't drag on getting things done. Having worked with attorneys in the past on other issues, I was surprised at how quickly all of the information was gathered and compiled into the Complaint. She got the paperwork filed in record time and my divorce was finalized more quickly than I could imagine. In addition, working with her was a delight. She's personable, kind, and supportive to her clients. I always felt like I had a great ally in her. I would recommend Ms. Carrithers to anyone.

Efficient and Persuasive Lawyer
Ms. Carrithers understood my issue and guided me through the process of recovering a debt. She fully understood the law surrounding my case. She kept me informed and assured me that my case was strong. I believe Ms. Carrithers is a very ethical person, which became more evident when we were in court and encountered opposing counsel. I'm glad I had her representing me.

Exceptional Attorney
Ms. Carrithers was outstanding in her handling of my case. She rapidly assessed and explained all relevant legal issues and potential costs, offered options, strategically crafted and pursued multiple courses of action--a primary plan and also contingency plans--and quickly resolved what had been a thorny conflict for several months prior to my finding Ms. Carrithers. She was highly responsive--accessible--in person and electronically--and communicated all aspects of the case in easy to understand terms. Ms. Carrithers consistently was well prepared, highly knowledgeable, and always professional in her dealings with me and in her negotiations with opposing counsel. She achieved the best outcome possible or for me in this case. In addition, her staff shares her friendly, "can do" attitude and was a pleasure to deal with. I am 100% satisfied and would turn to Ms. Carrithers again for legal assistance.

A great Professional Attorney
My family was risking to be unfairly evicted from the apartment, with the other party not accepting to settle it. As I always thought that lawyers are expensive, I was clueless until I was connected to the Carrithers' office. Ms. Lavanya studied the case and came out with strong grounds of defense, that led to a successful settlement, without me paying other party's attorney's fees. In addition to being reasonable on fees, she was very responsive and a good listener, allocating considerable time to my case, while charging me only for what I agreed about upfront.

Excellent Lawyer
Lavanya took care of a pressing legal matter for us. She was very professional, to the point and easy to converse with. She took great pains in explaining the law and the pros and cons of what we were dealing with.She was also very prompt in all her actions, communicating on regular basis so we were well informed at all times. She went above and beyond for our legal rights for which we are really grateful. The case went in our favor.
