Best decision ever.
Best decision I ever made for one of the worst situations many of us are forced to go through. I knew my divorce was going to be a huge uphill battle and I wanted to make sure everything I did was exactly how it should be done and in my children's and my best interest. Over 30 years of marriage and with both college and minor children and I stay at home spouse for a few years, there is so much riding on my divorce outcome for the rest of my life. I interviewed 8 different lawyers. Mr. Cario is the ONLY one who mentioned how alimony had recently changed and I would be looking at paying the tax on alimony payments. That is a huge factor and no one else mentioned it! He asked what I wanted as the outcome: % of custody, house, retirement plan, and other things. He presented me with a brief review of a balanced outcome that might be in my best interest, with options based on what we had just discussed. Of course, he explained if he represented me, this would all be adjusted as information was provided with possible outcomes. He also clarified he takes care of the digging into the details because that is what he is paid for. The entire team at his firm is on top of everything. He also called me from his cell phone when I had a very urgent issue, while he was away dealing with just as serious of an issue for his family. When I apologized for taking him away from his issue, he told me not to worry. I already knew I had made the right decision, that just reinforced it. My outcome was more than I ever hoped for when talking to friends and family who have gone through a divorce before. My only advice for someone looking for a lawyer besides choosing Mr. Cario, do what they ask and provide what they need from you in the time period they recommend. Never have written a review before for anything! I had to for this experience and how well that took care of me. Lawyers can be expensive, yes. Great lawyers are more expensive. It's just the simple truth. My outcome 1000% justified his cost. Just ask my Ex!
