Divorce
I worked with Courtney Carter going through a very rough divorce. She was extremely prepared, it was impressive! I had a lot of questions; she was informative throughout the entire process. Her feedback was amazing and she knew what was coming and was ready before it happened. She was great to work with! Highly recommended!

First-rate attorney
Ms Carter did a fantastic job for me on a bitter, contentious case. She really cares about families and mending ties. She fought relentlessly for me and saved me money. I recommend her wholeheartedly and without reservations.

Awesome Representation
Courtney Carter responded to my need for representation quickly and helped me develop a plan that allowed me to relax in a very volatile situation. Once the emergency situation was handled, she completely respected my wishes yet interjected her professional advice and guidance appropriately. I am not a fan of attorneys but I would retain Courtney over and over. She is exactly what I needed at the time I needed her. If you are in need of family law representation, I could not recommend her more. As a professional myself with a lot on the line, Courtney continues to be a very trusted member of my team. Carl M.

Laura is a phenomenal lawyer. She was responsive, made sure everything ended with equitable distribution, caught anything that could have raised an issue later on. She is well prepared and know her family law like no other!! I would definitely recommend her as a highly efficient lawyer and I will go back to her without a thought in my mind because I was so impressed with her skill set.

Highest Integrity
I would recommend Courtney L. Carter to anyone going through the hard experience of a divorce. She holds herself to the highest standards that she took under oath for becoming an attorney. She listened to me and fought with the highest integrity, for me and my children and was available when I needed her. I cannot begin to thank her enough. If there is a win in this situation, we settled without going to court and I feel satisfied with my outcome so I feel like I won. I felt reassured having her in my corner! Thank you so much Courtney!!!! Forever grateful, HG

Courtney was exactly what an family law attorney should be, responsive, aggressive while maintaining compassion. She was very analytical, and did a great job communicating those analyses to the mediator. I would have paid twice as much for the results she produced.

The lawyer you want in your corner
Courtney Carter was amazing from start to finish. She listened and understood the complexity of my situation. She was no-nonsense with opposing counsel, and I knew she was out for my best interests. These small legal battles have long-term implications. I was glad I had a strong professional attorney looking out for me. I would highly recommend Courtney Carter to anyone, and gratefully retain her services in the future.

Courtney was not only a charming person to deal with, she was knowledgeable. She constantly kept me updated on my case and worked hard to "move" things along. I am very please with her services although I pray I do not need her services in the future, I would consult her if I did.

I don’t believe it would have happened without her!
Ms Carter was very professional, punctual and thorough. The first thing I did was schedule a consultation with Ms Carter and was very pleased with our initial meeting. She listened to my wishes, took extensive notes, and offered several ideas on how to handle my particular case. Once hired she made sure that I was included in every step she made. She helped me feel very comfortable about my situation and my odds of getting what I was asking for. I asked to maintain 50/50 custody of my daughter but to also gain the “primary physical custody” title solely for the purpose of getting my daughter into a much better school system than the one her mother could provide at the time. In court the opposing counsel made it a point to attack my personal life and did very little to build a case of why the minor child should have her mother’s address as her primary. Ms Carter did not attack the opposition but instead made a great presentation of why the minor child would be better off in an environment where she would have many more opportunities to flourish and get ahead in life at an early age. Winning the case and gaining more than I asked for made me quite emotional and is one of my proudest moments as a father and Ms Carter is the attorney that made it possible for me. With all of my willingness and gratitude I would recommend her to anyone seeking legal counsel.

Surpassed all expectations
Courtney was just simply fantastic to deal with. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable, but she always seemed to be one step ahead of the other side. By far the most pleasant experience I've had with any attorney. During the course of the case opposing counsel deployed a barrage of questionable tactics, but Courtney always knew when to push back hard and when to allow things to play out. Her advice was always on point and in no time I was reunited with my son, which was the initial reason I met with her. As far as alimony and all things monetary goes - she was again incredible in her understanding of the law as well as how the law would potentially be applied to my case, which was more complex given business interests abroad. She again knew exactly when to push hard for what we wanted and when we should give a little to get everything we wanted in the end. All round she made what was a traumatic life experience a lot easier.

Excellent Review
Courtney is professional, courteous, knowledgeable, responsive, forward-thinking and good at managing expectations. Through my contentious separation and custody matters, she filed pleadings, motions, advised me appropriately and was conscious of time and cost constraints. I would hire her again and recommend her to anyone needing an experienced family law attorney.

Excellent family law attorney
Ms. Carter handled my divorce and child custody case in Union County. She did a superior job. I couldn’t be more pleased. Opposing counsel was trying to use my military service against me. They brought up my combat tours, my PTSD diagnosis and tried to paint me as a bad father who was going to go postal any minute. Ms. Carter brought in expert witnesses, neighbors, family and members of my platoon to demonstrate not only that I was trusted, loved and had served honorably but was a good father. She made the judge see the truth. Her commitment was unwavering, her steadfast determination unmatched, her work ethic unequaled, and she truly cared about me, my family, and my son. She is warm, determined, compassionate, highly capable and her preparation and strategy are superb. Thanks to her I now have joint physical and legal custody of my son.
