About Carolyn

Learn Carolyn’s areas of practice.

Ms. Crichton’s law practice includes more than twenty-two years of general and commercial litigation and appellate work in both the state and federal courts. Ms. Crichton has successfully litigated a wide range of cases including commercial disputes, creditors rights, probate, civil rights and ERISA matters in the state and federal courts.  In addition, Ms. Crichton served as special legal counsel to Orange County, Florida for code enforcement, foreclosures and related litigation from May, 1999 until December 2001. 

  

The client’s risk of exposure, both from a legal and public relations perspective is a vital factor considered by Ms. Crichton in fashioning a strategic plan and case resolution in each specific case.

 

Litigation cases are marked by various methods of resolution.  Ms. Crichton successfully worked on cases resolved without the necessity of litigation, where through negotiation she achieved settlement of the dispute and economic management of the cost to the client.  Ms. Crichton has filed or defended cases that were successfully resolved by mediation.  In the event that settlement is not forthcoming, Ms. Crichton has successfully litigated cases through trial and appeal.  Ms. Crichton’s reported cases include Stvartak v. Eastman Kodak Co. 144 F.3d 54 (11th Cir. 1998).

 

Ms. Crichton focuses her continuing legal education on litigation and negotiation skills and real property law and creditors rights.  Ms. Crichton is admitted to and practices in Florida and Colorado.

Responsive & Professional
Carolyn Crichton has been my attorney for years. She has helped me with personal, real estate, and professional matters. Most recently, she handled a series of very complicated real estate closings for me and I couldn't be more pleased with how smoothly everything went. She and her team anticipated issues which ultimately saved us time, money, and possible heartache. Most of all, I appreciate Carolyn's positive approach and how well she communicates and explains options, potential outcomes, and her recommendations.
