5 Star Attorney
If you are about to hire an attorney then I encourage you to read this review. I had a solid and overwhelmingly positive experience with Carol and I would HIGHLY recommend you interview her for your divorce needs and representation. Some of the words that I would use to accurately describe Carol would be experienced, caring, consistent, professional, courteous, understanding and most of all knowledgeable. I by no means enjoyed the divorce process but can tell you that Carol and her team really kept things on track and took care of all the details. Also, for those of you with children, Carol is very aware of it takes in the eyes of the law to protect and support the little ones and this was one of the things that was very important to me. Best wishes-

Experienced, clever, pleasant to work with
Carol knows divorce law well and has worked with numerous local divorce lawyers and judges, something I see as a big plus. She had many great ideas for me during my divorce proceedings but also followed my wishes when they differed from her advice. She was well-organized and detail-oriented, good at keeping the case moving, and able to explain legal issues quite clearly. In addition to all that I found her very pleasant to talk to. I was 100% happy with her work and highly recommend Carol.

Review of Carol Glassman
Carol was extremely knowledgeable and efficient in representing my interest in a domestic dispute. She listened and integrated my opinions and direction in resolving the issue. She also exhibited excellent skill in the negotiations on my behalf. I recommend Carol as an attorney.

the best
Carol has been our attorney for the past 6 years. We came to her with a very unique set of custody cases. She always treated us with respect and treated our request with the utmost importance. Carol represented our family in more than 10 court appearances and has filed more than 20 motions for us. Carol is still our attorney and still finds time to handle everything that comes our way.

Custody
Carol was truly amazing for my husband and I, along with our grandsons. Through an extremely and unique situation, she assisted us in two separate custody battles for our grandsons. We have needed to rehired her a couple of times. Carol is meticulously professionally prepared each and every time. She was dedicated heart and soul to do what was best for our boys well-being!!

Great Professional
Carol is easy to work with. She got back to me quickly with answers to my questions. Carol was my divorce attorney 3 years ago and I retained her services recently to handle a post-divorce matter because I had great confidence in her ability to resolve matters quickly and accurately.

Carol Glassman
Carol took over my case after another attorney botched an initial court hearing. I consider her one of the most competent people I have ever met. She handled all documents and negotiations with the utmost professionalism. She was also empathetic toward the plight of the family dynamic during the divorce and always acted in the best interest of the children. I recommend her highly.

Exceptional
Divorce took me by surprise and despite the intentions to proceed in an amicable manner on our own, it became clear that professional assistance was required. I researched online and found Carol Glassman. Getting through the initial conversation with Carol’s team and subsequently the initial meeting, it very quickly became clear that Carol was intent on processing and memorizing every detail of my particular situation. Because of this thorough initial interview as well as a continued effective dialogue, things that I never anticipated, Carol saw coming from a mile-away. Carol makes herself available around the clock (except during dance class) to provide the most professional response and solutions to whatever the issue might be. As such, I strongly recommend Carol and her great team to anyone that is looking for exceptional legal representation in a divorce.

Fantastic lawyer and strong woman
I went through a divorce case, which is never easy. I was very hesitant to hire a lawyer but eventually was forced to. During the divorce process Carol always made me feel at ease and always looked out for my best interest. She put my needs first and made my divorce process a success!! Thanks so much Carol!!

A great lawyer
Carol is an excellent lawyer. She helped me get through a very complex and painful divorce. She helped me make good choices about the battles that were worth fighting and helped me avoid battles that were too costly or simply not practical to fight. She is very clam and professional, she is a straight shooter, she is realistic, she has incredible attention to detail and she has a wealth of legal experience. I am very grateful that Carol was my lawyer through this process.

Carol Glassman
Carol is very good at calling you to see how you are doing (and charging you for it). She is very meticulous with paper work but is loathe to be aggressive on your behalf. Carol was very intimidated by the opposing counsel and I got what my friends unanimously called the worst settlement they have ever heard. I received many aggressive calls about my attorney fees (which were substantial). Do yourself and your pocketbook a favor...go elsewhere.

Lots of money for not a good settlement
This attorney was great at one thing: that is spending YOUR money. I ended up spending most of my savings and dipped into retirement as well because her rate of spending my retainer was outrageous. She seemed to be most concerned about getting paid and was not afraid to hound you for it even on the hearing day. She wrote a lot of unnecessary correspondence and of course charged me for them. She was not at all compassionate and lacked confidence when we were up against the opposing attorney. My settlement was not good at all and she justified it by saying that it all depends on which judge is ruling. I felt sick after spending all my money to get virtually nothing. Do not go to this attorney. It seemed as if she is practicing law purely for the paycheck and I did not feel law was her passion. Never seemed to have the right answers and always referring to the books.
