I cannot more highly recommend Katie Carlo! Her skill, knowledge, compassion and high ethical standard is unsurpassed. Katie made a very stressful, emotional and difficult situation somehow more manageable. Her level of experience was evident from the very first meeting when she was able to competently and quickly assess the situation, formulate a plan and offer sound guidance to me. It was the first time in a long time that I felt like things would be ok. Finances were definitely a concern to me, and Katie continually helped me find ways to move forward in the most economical way possible without compromising on the final outcome. Now more than ever, I appreciate Katie’s attention to detail in drafting my child custody agreement! While aggressive when she needs to be, she was able to diffuse highly emotional situations and kept the whole, long process focused on the important matters instead of wasting time and resources on inconsequential things. Katie seemed to always be a step ahead in anticipating what was to come in my ever evolving situation. She never pushed me to make a decision but ensured that I had a good understanding of my options and I was prepared to make those decisions when the time came. Despite the fact that she was highly recommended to me by a friend, I almost did not go meet Mrs. Carlo because I do not live in a nearby county and was concerned about the long distance to her office and the fact that I thought she might not know how to navigate the county courts in my area as well as a local attorney. These fears were completely unfounded. Throughout the entire process, Katie was so approachable and pleasant. She was always available and managed the courts in my county with great finesse, sparing me a court appearance. I cannot imagine a better outcome to such a difficult situation and am so grateful that I was able to work with such an ethical and competent lawyer. Again, Katherine Carlo is simply and exceptional lawyer and a wonderful person. I highly recommend her!

Ms. Carlo did a fantastic job on my divorce and custody case. It was such a difficult time, and she patiently and carefully explained options, anticipated responses, and was always thorough and efficient. I was pleased and grateful for her professionalism, dedication, and persistence.

Katie has been a dedicated, skillful, very caring, knowledgeable attorney from the start. It was evident that she completely and immediately understood my situation and provided sage advice. Katie is well versed in all legal matters dealing with spousal support modification. She also has a keen sense of when and how to proceed for success. Throughout the legal process, she fully understood my situation and all the underlying details. Katie was readily available to answer any and all questions as she was very responsive throughout the process.
I highly recommend Katie Carlo. As distasteful as these kind of proceedings can be sometimes, she actually made this as pleasant and professional as it could have possibly been. The results could not have been any better. My only regret was not finding her earlier, to represent me in the actual divorce proceedings!
