I have been practicing law now for 36 years. I work primarily in chapter 11 and chapter 7 bankruptcy, bankruptcy litigation, guardianship and probate litigation, uncontested guardianship and probate, commercial and civil litigation, appeals, and mediation. I have four grown children, I am a grandma, and own my own business. My practice is generally in the North Texas area.

Much of my spare time and nearly all of my vacation time are spent doing faith based volunteer work in the community and internationally. I have been blessed to be able to use my legal training in my international volunteer work in Africa, which includes training in-country lawyers, judges, military and police, as well as lay persons in biblical justice, restorative justice, biblical forgiveness, and mediation. I also help train women in small business startups and cooperative formation and business planning to help empower them to bring peace and economic stability to their families and communities.

Really appreciated the guidance of this attorney!
Carol made the whole process of bankruptcy feel less daunting and worked with us to be thorough and organized to get it done! We really appreciated her professional attitude and understanding of our situation to complete what was needed and made us feel much more confident of our situation going forward. She was thoughtful and easy to work with and great at communication and reassurance of all that we didnt understand! I would recommend her to anyone in need of an attorney and have thanked my close friend for recommending her repeatedly!

An Attorney who can solve your legal problems.
Carol can take on the most difficult problems that may arise concerning Guardianship, Elder law, and other legal issues that may unexpectantly arise. She is understanding, thorough, and accomplishes the complex tasks at hand with competence and grace. Carol solved the difficult problems that arose for my 94 year old Mom, allowing her to return to a safe home and be financially secure. Carol offers solid legal advice, remains constantly available, and I would give her my best recommendation for helping you and your family.

North Texas Trucking Vs LJL Management
Carol did a great job handling my case and she was very professional! She knew what and what not to do in order to get my case settled before it went to trial. I would highly recommend her and will continue doing business with her as long as needed. One of the most important things I would like to comment on is the fact that she actually cares about her clients and does everything possible to help you understand what and how things work throughout your case. Again, I appreciate her and would highly recommend her!

Excellent Attorney for Guardianship Law
Carol Wolfram represented a friend for whom I acted as Guardian and did a masterful job representing him and his right to live out his life on his terms in the face of a terminal diagnosis. Not only was Carol diligent and insightful, but also intuitive and sensitive to my friend's end of life dignity. She not only knew her stuff professionally, but added a very human dimension at a very difficult time. I would gladly recommend her as legal counsel for all matters regarding Guardianship and family matters.

Excellent Litigation and Bankruptcy attorney
I hired Carol to represent me as the administrator of a probate estate, to file a lawsuit against the decedent's heirs for breach of fiduciary duty. Carol was thorough and highly professional, especially in light of the high emotions in the case. When the case ended up in bankruptcy court, I was grateful for her expertise in that area as well. Although I am an attorney, I am not a litigator nor a bankruptcy lawyer. Carol explained all aspects of our lawsuit and the bankruptcy case without being condescending. I always felt confident that Carol was truly my advocate and dedicating to protecting my interests as the estate administrator.

Excellent Litigation and Bankruptcy attorney
I asked Carol to represent me as the administrator of a probate estate to file a lawsuit against some of the decedent's heirs for breach of fiduciary duty. Carol was thorough and extremely professional, especially in view of the high emotions surrounding the case. When the case ended up in bankruptcy court, I was grateful for Carol's expertise in that area as well. Although I am an attorney, I am not a litigator nor a bankruptcy attorney. Carol explained all issues surrounding the case in both courts without being condescending. I highly recommend Carol for any litigation or bankruptcy matter.

Very Professional
She was very diligent and courteous in getting my legal dispute resolved in a bankruptcy regarding an oil and gas company. She always had time to answer my questions and gave me great advise. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family.

Estate Settlement
When my uncle passed away, my aunt went to Ms. Wolfram on the recommendation of her former attorney who had moved out of state. My aunt was so pleased that she left instructions for me to contact Ms. Wolfram upon her death to settle the estate. Ms. Wolfram made herself available to me to answer any questions I had. She also was very helpful when I completed documents and forms and met me at the courthouse early enough to go over what was about to take place. That was very helpful because I'd never been in a courtroom before. If I ever need to hire an attorney for anything in the Denton area, I will most definitely use Ms. Wolfram again. I heartily recommend her to anyone needing legal services.

Perfect Choice
Carol Lynn Wolfram represented me in 2006 and again in 2011 for family matters. I could not have hired a better lawyer. She was very prompt and knowledgeable. She kept me informed through the whole process. Family law can be very stressful, but Ms. Wolfram made the process easier for me. I highly recommend her.
