Made My Life Complete
For what seemed impossible Carrie was there to assure me that it can happen. For a father to get custody of his children after 5 years it’s usually does end up well for fathers. Carrie beat those odds and made it happen, till this day it brings tears of joy to me to come home to my children. I thank GOD for putting Carrie in my path.

Competent and compassionate
Carrie is a competent, caring attorney. She recently handled my interstate custody case, which others I consulted found complex and hopeless. She called and emailed regularly with updates and sound advice based on years of experience with opposing counsel and family courts in Montgomery County. Quality counsel is never cheap, but her rates are competitive and her expertise invaluable. The outcome of my case could not have been better, and I owe it all to Carrie. I’ve already hired her to handle another family matter, and I will continue to recommend her to anyone I know that needs a family law attorney.

Carrie helped me each step of the way through one of the most difficult times a person can go through.
Carrie remains a dear friend to me even to this day. She organized and led my legal affairs with the utmost professional and personal care. I could not have wished for a better attorney to guide me through each step of my divorce.
