About Carolyn

Learn Carolyn’s areas of practice.

I am very aware of the emotional toll and strain caused by an inability to keep up with house payments, credit card payments, and other financial obligations. I try to listen to my clients patiently, return calls promptly, and help them achieve their objectives in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. After an initial meeting with a client, I make recommendations regarding the best way to deal with that client’s particular situation.

Bankruptcy is not for wimps. You need to be prepared for the rigors of this experience including the unbridled truth about your situation and what will be expected of you to succeed. Carolyn will do all of this for you. Her no nonsense consultations will give you an honest assessment of where you stand and what you need to do to move forward. She did this for me, providing a checklist of all records and documents necessary so I would be fully prepared to go to court. With her help, my debt was entirely discharged. She was the reason for my success.

Caring, Compassionate and Highly Competent !
I must have engaged Carolyn for a year, or more, before I stopped dithering and began the actual bankruptcy process. She was unfailingly kind, informative and patient (!) until I said to start the ball rolling. Throughout the entire process, she was magnificent...answering all e-mails, texts and / or phone calls promptly, and always with useful and correct information or suggestions. Her empathy and compassion made a highly stressful five years much more bearable than they would otherwise have been. At all times, she was highly professional. Just before I could get my discharge, I found it necessary to engage her services for a tangentially-related issue. Once again, she guided me through that somewhat confusing process clearly and competently. I cannot recommend Carolyn Krohn highly enough. If she practiced other kinds of law, I would have no hesitation to employ her services in any legal matter.

Absolutely the best bankruptcy attorney in the Annapolis area!
I highly recommend Carolyn Krohn to anyone in need of a bankruptcy attorney. We knew Carolyn before we found ourselves in need of her expert services. We are very pleased with the services her firm provided. She is personable, knowledgeable, kind-hearted and caring. The breadth and depth of her knowledge of the bankruptcy process is incredible. Carolyn made the entire process easy to understand and made a very difficult time in our lives more bearable. She made us feel comfortable during an uncomfortable situation. She always responded to my emails right away and was so patient when I needed her to explain certain areas of the process more in depth. She took the time to prepare us for the questions that might arise during the hearing. When we were in front of the trustee, we were a little nervous, but confident Carolyn had done all that needed to be done. The trustee had very few questions for us. Carolyn Krohn is a a brilliant attorney and an exception professional. We absolutely love her!

Good response time, Helpful
Messaged Ms. Krohn about an issue I need legal advice for. She responded within 24 hours and even went out of her way to send me an email. Even though she couldn't assist me with my issue, she gave me the name of another lawyer who might be able to.

The Most Professional, Well Educated and Straightforward Bankruptcy Attorney
Being recently divorced and no relief from bills, I had to find a good bankruptcy lawyer. I was referred to Carolyn through a family law attorney. She handled my bankruptcy with care and she was very knowledgeable regarding bankruptcy laws. She made sure to let me know all the good AND bad situations that could happen. It was not easy filing for bankruptcy but Carolyn was on my side and made it a seamless process. Lord willing, I found the best bankruptcy attorney out there! Carolyn is by far the most professional, well educated and straightforward bankruptcy attorney around.

I highly recommend Carolyn Krohn
Carolyn is a very professional and knowledgable attorney and I trust her completely. From the beginning to the end of my bankruptcy process, she was patient, thoughtful, thoroughly informative about every aspect of bankruptcy law and the process, and proved to be honest and trustworthy. I always felt I was in the best possible hands with her and I am so glad I chose her. I have absolutely no complaints about her and recommend her highly to anyone looking for an attorney.

Caring and considerate
This was a very scary and sad time for me and Carolyn made it as painless as possible. She was very patient with all of the information I needed to gather to provide to the courts and I never felt like she wasn't looking out for my best interest. She was extremely thoughtful and caring, which is very hard to find in lawyers. I trusted her 100% and was surprised with how much I was able to connect with her on a personal level.

C. KROH IS AN EXCEPTIONAL ATTORNEY AND OUTSTANDING PERSON
Attorney Carolyn Krohn of Annapolis MD provided truly exceptional service to us (husband and wife - professionals) prior to, during and after the successful Order of Discharge. Our case was complex. We consulted with other attorneys and are so pleased that we chose Ms. Kroh. With our case she displayed expert knowledge and mastery of skill in the application of Bankruptcy Laws, Court Proceedings, Attorney and Trustee matters, potential and actual issues with regard to our case and, importantly, in-depth experiences with highly complex bankruptcy issues. The client/attorney relationship was at the most outstanding level. Ms. Krohn knows her business. She provided the most prompt responses that one could expect. Her responses were thorough, timely, and in terms that were easily understandable to us. She simply did an outstanding work for us and we give her the highest of recommendations to others.

Carolyn Krohn is exceptional
My wife and my situation was DIRE. We were completely out of resources, facing complete financial failure. We are both professionals, and invested way to much into a 501c3 we started, and it drained us to the bottom. Knowing absolutely nothing about bankruptcy, Carolyn's guidance was thorough and exceptional from the very first meeting through the final discharge of all debts (Chapter 7). Her response time to our inquiries was impressive. Also, she fielded all the calls from collection departments. She never promised anything that she did not deliver. Carolyn was able to explain what would happen every step along the way right up to the court hearing. Without hesitation, we recommend Carolyn Krohn with our fullest appreciation for her expertise in bankruptcy law. The outcome of the bankruptcy exceeded our expectations and hopes. Thank you Carolyn for guiding us to a second chance at financial wellness.

Exceptional Lawyer and Legal Services
It will be hard to share all of the good and positive experiences I had with Carolyn with a character limit of only 4000, but I will certainly try. :-) Carolyn is an intelligent, no-nonsense, diligent, careful and honest lawyer. She tells you like it is, but she does it in a way that is very respectful to you. Know that is for YOUR benefit, as her client, that she pulls no punches. She keeps you advised every step of the way, is almost always available to answer questions, and is particularly fast to respond to emails. If you leave a voicemail, she WILL call you back, unlike some lawyers with whom I have dealt in the past. I never felt out of the loop on anything, and she kept me completely aware of the steps being taken and why, and those to be taken (and why.) She meticulously prepares and walks you through the meeting with your Bankruptcy Trustee. She keeps you apprised of her communications with the Trustee's Office as well. Carolyn is extraordinarily professional in her interactions with the Trustee and the Bankruptcy Court, and she obviously takes her position as an Officer of the Court very seriously. Carolyn works tirelessly to obtain the best outcome for you and your case. On a personal note, she also assuages fears, calms nerves, and reassures when she can, but she will never misrepresent or "color-coat" anything to, or misguide you, at any time. Of that, you can be sure. She truly is an advocate for you. Carolyn's fees are extremely reasonable. Quite frankly, I would have paid twice the amount I paid for the legal services she provided! I recommend Carolyn Krohn without a single hesitation or caveat. You just cannot say that about so many lawyers who are out there advertising, vying for, and tripping over each other to pull you in as their client. That's just not Carolyn's style.

Amazing
I hired Carolyn to handle my bankruptcy case. I went to her during a low point in my life. No one wants to file bankruptcy. Carolyn was very understanding and answered all of my questions. She truly cared about my situation and was very knowledgeable of the laws. The entire process was seamless and went exactly as she said it would. Carolyn made a painful experience bearable.

she is amazing
I don't think I could have gone through this process with out her! She met with us and told us of all the options, what she thought would be best and how to handle everything. There was never any surprises ! We were always kept in the loop and many times she knew more then we did about letters that were on there way. I truly can't tell you how amazing she was! I wish I didn't have to be in this position but was happy that Carolyn was there to help me through everything.

Miss Cool
Carolyn was exceptional in helping my wife and me file for bankruptcy. She was very clear in her explanation of the process involved. She kept in touch with us and we felt very comfortable talking to her at such a difficult time. Her constant reassurances over questions we had helped immensely. We highly recommend her to anyone even remotely considering filing bankruptcy and let her help you to decide after listening to her explanations, advise and the pros and cons of this process.
