Excellent attorney
1. Knows the law very well (most attorneys don't). 2. Knows how and when to use the (correct) law in your favor. 3. Knows the family court system very well and the working style of judges in San Jose Family Court. 4. Can speak in front of judges very well and make a point (most attorneys can't). 5. Can file persuasive motions as need arises. Her motions contain relevant legal precedents and other material. They are not full of fluff (the kind of thing that doesn't persuade judges). 6. Quick and organized in her work and communication. 7. Overall very good execution of your case. 8. Bold and confident. One of the few good family law attorneys in SF bay area.

Amazing
Carol was and is amazing. She is very passionate about what she does. But she is also sympathetic, but also straight to the point. I hired her because my previous attorney who I fired made an absolute mess of everything, and left me in a very bad spot. Carol came in and immediately made an impact, and made a difference on how my case was handled. She made me feel comfortable and confident in what we were trying to achieve. She always instilled confidence in me and gave me the best advice on how to handle things the right way. Carol actually doesn’t deserve a five star rating, she deserves a ten, but that’s no an option. I wish I would have found Carol from the beginning of my case, I know it would not have gone on as long as it did. Do I recommend her? Absolutely. Her and her legal assistant Chris are amazing. Chris was also very professional and made sure everything in his scope of work was done, and he also worked with me through different things I had to get done to make sure that it’s done right. This team is awesome. Thanks again for all that you guys have done.

Fabulous Family Law Attorney
To whom it may concern, Carol Ferreyra represented me in the dissolution of my marriage. I felt very lucky to have been able to retain her services as she is very sought after for her legal acumen, and she was highly recommended to me by a friend. I found Carol, and her supporting office staff to be extraordinary in every possible way, and every turn, so to speak. Carol procured an excellent settlement for me with very little fanfare. Her expertise of Family Law is unparalleled. In a settlement conference she consistently schooled my husband’s young attorney on the actual law. I felt sorry for opposing counsel for her ignorance, but Carol caught all of the mistakes and incorrect conjectures and explained the reality in a way that was neither condescending nor rude. She comports herself quite professionally , has a lovely gracious way about her, but at the same time is no pushover. She fights for her client endlessly. Any time that I would call her, I received an immediate response. She and her incredible staff were always available to answer any questions that I had. She also is quite respected in the Court community, which helped enormously during Court appearances she made on my behalf. Carol made NO mistakes, literally. All of the paperwork was completed seamlessly. Once my divorce was finalized my only suggestion to Carol was that she should charge a higher hourly rate. The competence she demonstrated is rarely found nowadays. I am still grateful everyday that she was my Attorney.

Truly Grateful
Carol Ferreyra has truly been a blessing to my family. From the initial start of searching for a lawyer, Carol was compassionate and she took the time to explain the process to us. For Carol, the fit was just as important as her services. I was attempting a move away, out of the state and as a single father, the process was very daunting. Carol and her office stood by us every step of the way and made it as easy as possible. With challenges such as Covid, distance, and finances, Carol was very empathetic to our situation. Without Carol and her great team, I don't think we would have my son right now. Carol did everything in her power to keep cost down whenever possible and kept me in the loop throughout the case on a regular basis. For anyone out there looking for a great child custody lawyer in the Bay Area, I don't think anyone is better. She really cares about her clients.

great attorney to be on your side
I'm so glad I found Carol Ferreyra attorney office for my brother divorce case. She delivered for him, and he got the decision he always wanted - 50:50. Carol was very professional and efficient in her executions. Her price was right for my low income brother. There were a few times when there were mistakes in some of the documentations and after I reviewed them, the mistakes got fixed quickly and resend for review and processed. Over all, I'm glad we found a good attorney like Carol. Thank you Carol and her staff for getting the job done!

Phenomenal Lawyer
Where do I even start with this review. Carol, Chris, and team were so amazing to me! I couldn't have had a better experience with them. I was going through an incredibly difficult and stressful custody battle. I reached out and from the minute I walked in the door, I knew that I had the perfect legal representation. Carol was straightforward and gave realistic expectations throughout this whole process. Carol was in charge of my case and from our first consultation, everything she told me came true! Carol Ferreyra was a life saver for me throughout this process. Child custody is not only a financial and legal challenge, but also a huge emotional challenge. Carol understood that and was there for me in every way, walking me through the steps, making things happen efficiently, protecting my interests while being totally fair and professional to the other side. The end result was Carol got me custody of my daughter and managed through the bogus claims made by the opposition. I can't imagine a better family lawyer. I highly recommend Carol. Without her, I have no idea what the results of my case would have been. I can't give Carol and team enough thanks. My daughter is at home with me where she belongs and I don't know if that would have happened if it were not for Ferreyra Law Group.

Went above and beyond
I retained Carol to assist me in divorce and child custody proceedings. Although the other side attempted to drag matters out, Carol managed to secure a settlement and agreement for me, and then execute it on the eve of Christmas in 2018. She did this by working tirelessly after hours and reaching out to personal contacts of hers who could facilitate final orders. Consequently, she was able to not only save me tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees, she saved me tens of thousands of dollars in future costs because she was able to get orders signed by a judge prior to 2019 tax changes. Her team is very personable and easy to contact. I never had an issue with reaching someone in her office; everyone is incredibly responsive.

Excellent Attorney
I hired Carol in 2020 to represent me in a civil/domestic matter and I'm very pleased to provide this review for her. Carol is an excellent attorney to be by your side in complex/complicated cases. I find her to be very knowledgeable about the law and strategic in her ways. Her methodical and thoughtful ways drives meaningful results for her clients. My case was complicated and her guidance and expertise simplified otherwise complex legalities which helped me navigate my case. Her ability to stay grounded and calm gives her the ability to manage difficult personalities under the stressful process of separation and domestic disputes. I recommend Carol for any of your family/civil law needs.

Excellent professional lawyer
I hired Carol to help me through my divorce. She is courteous, responsive, organized, and extremely knowledgeable about the Santa Clara court system. Carol worked hard on my behalf. She explained each step of the legal process, and walked me through the available options at each step. At the same time, she ensured that we made constant progress in spite of dealing with an anemic opposing party that at times appeared disorganized and uninterested in making progress. I am grateful to Carol and am happy to recommend her to others seeking legal representation.

Highest Possible Recommendation
Carol represented me in a divorce case which had previously been progressing painfully slowly, and which was very stressful for me. Carol's calm demeanor and level head helped me get through the situation; and her detailed knowledge of the law and (as another reviewer mentioned) the "working style of judges", as well as her unfaltering professionalism served to get things moving and bring the case to a close. I would recommend Carol in a heartbeat to anyone in need of a divorce lawyer.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I have had the privilege of working with carol on a divorce case that ended in 2016. I received a letter from my ex's attorney and PANICKED that we were going back to court. I ran the scenario by Carol and we talked about what it might mean. She calmed my nerves and put things into perspective and said " just ask him"..which I did..and it had nothing to do with taking me back to court but removing a lien from his home ! I HIGHLY recommend Carol for all of your family law needs. She is professional and knows the law inside and out!

The most sincere and honest I've met
Met with Ms. Ferreyra for a consultation on behalf of my girlfriend who is predominately Spanish speaking and her honesty and sincerity was felt within moments. Could have took on this case but advised us that an attorney would not be necessary. Don't hear too many stories about honest people these days but this attorney is a awesome person as well as very knowledgeable and sincere. Excellent and would definitely recommend.

Excellent and Best Custody Lawyer Highly Recommended!
Miss Carol has represented my case from more than 3 years. I offer highest possible rating for her. I met her when my situation was very stressful and serious. My case was very complicated as it involved jurisdiction of two countries. She is very diligent in her work. She handled my custody case very effectively. I have seen her representing my case in the court I am truly grateful for her knowledge as I witnessed the same. She is an expert & a thorough professional when it comes to legal knowledge and knows her way around the court system. Inspite of my case being complicated she had good control over the same. I got the custody of my children after 10 months. This wouldn't have been possible without her strategy and alertness and most important her legal knowledge. She is not only smart & excellent lawyer but also an amazing person as well. I would highly recommend Miss Carol. She went above and beyond what I expected and was fair with her billing charges. She is definitely the best Attorney I have come across.
