If it were not for Carla's help, I'm not sure I would have the life that I share with my daughter today. Navigating the waters of a custody case are overwhelming and scary. Carla was very effective dealing with my emotions given what was at stake and kept me focused on what was important. Carla helped debunk the allegations that were on the table and effectively negotiated a settlement out of court. She is a fantastic family attorney and a wonderful person to boot.
I'm forever grateful for her help.

Carla handled a fairly complicated divorce for me. She was very well prepared in court, often several steps ahead of opposing counsel. She had answers to their questions before they knew what they were going to ask.
She took care to ensure what was best for my son and leveraged a combination of negation and the courts to deescalate where possible. This ultimately brought us to settlement in what, by all measures, could have been a contentious and messy process.
Above all, I felt like she struck just the right balance between being legally and strategically acute, while still compassionate to the emotional difficulties of divorce. She often asked me of how my son was doing, with honest concern, and clearly wanted to help me achieve a peaceful and fair outcome.
I certainly have no plans to get divorced again, but I would highly recommend her to anybody needing a family attorney.

I would highly recommend Carla Scarpone. She did an amazing job, and changed my life. Carla is professional, down to earth, and very knowledgeable.

Carla Scarpone turned one of the most difficult times of my life into a manageable one. I am in the military and was going through a divorce. Carla's delicate handling and complete understanding of my needs enabled me to cope with the situation even after returning from a long deployment. Carla was able to assist me and the ex-wife with working out an acceptable Parenting Plan before we let our personal feelings get the best of us. Even many years later when issues arise, Carla has been there to lend an ear and sound advise. Carla has proven to be more than a lawyer, she is a true friend and will always be considered part of my family.

Carla worked with me on child custody case. This case spanned over three different states with an extremely high amount of people including government services, as well as private. While she represent myself in my state. she became the hub for the entire case and other lawyers involved from both sides in all states. At the beginning my children were being taken away and I was being falsely accused of every kind of abuse you can imagine. While all this was going on my children were placed in environments where they were being harmed and abused. I was lost with grief. Frustrated with helplessness, going through three separate investigations through three separate states in the end I know I only have my youngest son safe and returned me because of Carla's dedication, personal attention and commitment to doing what is right regardless of who in front of her. She worked with me through my financial struggles because it was such a large case and help me protect all my children. I am grateful to her and if I had a choice to choose any lawyer to represent myself, my family Carla is the only one.

Carla was extremely effective in the final court hearing. She was well prepared. She was very flexible during the hearing and quickly adjusted to the environment. Her cross examations were to the point, but done in a soft and courtesy manner. This was very effective. Her written summary was excellent.
Prior to the hearing she had the family well prepared.
During the months leading up to the hearing, there were many frustrating times and issues for the family, and Carla and team handled them patiently and effectively.
We now know that this was a very difficult case. Was handled extremely well!!!!!!!

Without a doubt, I knew immediately that Carla was on my side and was going to take it to the opposing side with her initial communication to the court (response to respondant pleading). She has demonstrated her skill as a truly remarkable wordsmith, using our opponent's own words and actions against themselves. Her background and knowledge of family law is beyond reproach, and I and my son, a special needs child, are in capable hands. We haven't yet embarked on the court hearing phase of this action and I will update this comment after all of the dust has settled.
