Since the beginning, Emily has been an outstanding support. I have been represented by several lawyers, but once I started working with her it became clear I was at the right office. She has integrity, compassion, empathy and sympathy with a genuine interest at heart for your story. What I like most is that she allows me to give input, and explains the impact of decisions. I can honestly say, I feel comfortable with Emily's representation and trust her. Her staff is always friendly and professional. I highly recommend Emily to represent you in court.

I have never been so impressed by a lawyer as Emily Carrara at
Sullivan, Taylor & Gumina, P.C.
She handled a QDRO for me from my divorce years ago. As I approached the age to receive my benefits, from my former husbands retirement fund I was told my QDRO was never finalized at the time of my divorce.
Emily was able to finalize everything within one month to allow me to receive my benefits on the date I was due for my first payment.. I wish I could express my gratitude on her expertise, knowledge, and efficiency.
I was told by the Benefit Administrator that Emily was one of the very few lawyers that they deal with who actually knew what she was doing as I learned from my research that these QDRO's can be a difficult process and not all lawyers understand what is involved. I can say Emily is a very capable attorney and I highly recommend her and this practice.
