Excellent Choice
Ms. Kelman is a highly experienced attorney who advocates for her clients. She genuinely cares about her clients and it shows in the court room. Carla was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. She never “Sugar Coated” the situation. Instead she prepared me for all possibilities. She was prepared for court, on time, and ready to represent my case. I will refer everyone I know who may need her services. If you need an excellent Attorney contact Ms. Carla Kelman.

Very Professional
Carla Gibbs Kelman was very helpful and professional during a stressful moment in our lives. I was able to find out more information with just one phone call with her than on my own in days. She answered every question I had via phone call and email, and was very informative. I would defiantly recommend her to others.

Carla saw me and my children through the worst years of our lives. Her expertise and compassion were appreciated more than I can ever describe. Carla is extremely professional and her caring for her clients is a true asset.

Cannot recommend
I hired Carla and my experience was much different than the other reviews. She and her office weren’t prepared and I felt she wasn’t aggressive as opposed to my ex’s attorney. I felt like she let a lot of important issues go by the wayside and in return the opposing counsel kept the upper hand. I felt defeated and very upset at the money, time and emotions spent into a case that I felt like I had no advocate.
