Professional and Curtious
Carolyn has handled two cases for me. She's prompt when responding to emails and calls. She did a great job explaining the charges and options I had available, and was very direct when we met. I felt that both of the incidents were handled professionally and in a timely manner. I hope to never need an attorney again, but if so, I'll be using Carolyn. Do yourself a favor and give her a call.

Carolyn was a great immigration lawyer. She was completely up front with me and looked for the best possible route concerning my immigration issues. Great communication skills and truly cared about me as a person and not just a client.
