VERY impressed…Caring, compassionate, knowledgeable and SO smart
Carrie is beyond intelligent and her knowledge of family law is so impressive. I have been entangled in court for over 8 years and have had multiple attorneys. Not one attorney comes close to Carrie and the outcome of my case would never have been possible without Carrie. Carrie guided me, explained things thoroughly and truly had my children’s’ best interest in mind. I wish I would have found Carrie years ago. She handled my case from day one and took off running and never backed down for one second from my ex who loves the courtroom more than his children. My case had many complex layers from years of court battles and Carrie took control of the chaos and handled it incredibly well. Every single phone call, question and email was answered and I was always kept in the loop. I always enjoyed talking with Carrie as she speaks very well and her vocabulary is so impressive in and out of the courtroom. Carrie, and her assistant Allison, are a dynamic team. If you want a solid, smart and powerful attorney fighting for you and more importantly, your kids, call Carrie. I promise you, you’ll be like me and wish you’d have found her earlier.

Excellent Service
Carrie and staff assisted with my case. I was given information about the steps and what to expect. This information was appreciated as I was nervous. Carrie clearly explained why certain things needed to occur. Also, Carrie worked towards a settlement so there was no need to go to trial. Whenever I had a question staff would find the answer for me.

Amazing attorney!!
Carrie did a fantastic job representing me. I had a rather complicated case, but Carrie was able to make me feel as comfortable as you can feel when going through a family law situation. She was there for me every step up of the way, and she did a great job of communicating with opposing counsel and keeping me updated. I would recommend her to anyone seeking counsel for their family law case!

Carrie has been truly amazing. I had two attorney before Carrie and they never remembered the facts of my case and could not wrap they heads around the complexity of my case. Carrie remembered every single fact. Carrie smartest person I have every met.

expert, professional family law attorney
Ms. Wilcox handled my case in the most professional, knowledgeable manner that put all my worries in perspective. From the minute I hired her, she and her staff kept me informed on everything. My divorce was complicated and her expertise not only made me feel assured, but proved to be successful in the court room. I would highly reccomend her services.

Knowledgeable and attentive
Carrie handled my divorce and child cusotdy case. She was very experienced and always available - taking calls on her cell phone on evenings and weekends when my ex would act up and I didn't know what to do. She got me a great result in the end and I would highly recommend her.

Horrible experience
Hired for a custody case. Always difficult to reach. Overcharged me multiple times. Rescheduled hearings to fit her vacations and children's days off, extending my case and causing additional financial costs. Several times I wasn't even aware she was away and had to face crucial parts of my case alone without counsel. Multiple times she released information to the other side that I clearly told her I wanted to use as strategy for my case, which gave me disadvantages in negotiations. Family and friends begged me to switch attorneys, and I so wish I had. if you need an attorney to fight for you, this is not the attorney you want on your side. To this day I wish I had filed a complaint against her.

Response from Carrie Wilcox November 20, 2015
We're sorry you had a bad experience with our firm. This matter does not sound familiar, and we strive for the utmost client satisfaction in every case. Please contact me directly to discuss your specific concerns.

Why is she even bothering to stay in law?
The first red flag for Carrie should be the difficulty in trying to get a human to answer the phone. Never in my dealings with her could I, or any the other lawyer, reach her without getting a machine and waiting sometimes days. She charges an arm and a leg, doesn't really care, and has her paralegal? do everything, although she bills. Horrible experience.
