I couldn't be happier right now!!!
I've used Christy for years. She is rational, level-headed, calm, direct, encourages settlement and fairness, and doesn't intentionally try to rial you up. That said, she definitely never hesitates to be tough as nails when needed. Most importantly, she gets results! Her pricing seems fair, and I am so pleased with all of the outcomes we've gotten in my family matters over the years. Highly recommend.

A great lawyer who gets the job done.
I have had Christy as my lawyer since 2013 for dealing with my ex husband in a number of issues. She helped draft a response to an out of state court concerning the jurisdiction of child support and custody. Christy and her staff have also handled a visitation modification and a child support hearing. In both cases the judgements were in my favor. The visitation was ordered so that the children do not spend the whole summer away and the oldest was able to make his own decisions. The child support was raised. In each case I have been able to contact Christy with any questions and concerns and have always received an answer.

Thank you so much!!
After fighting for years against my ex-husband and his lawyer, I had found myself on the losing end of a tough child custody case; I had gotten to the point of almost giving up. Feeling as though I had nowhere to turn I called Christy Carlisle of the law offices of Carlisle & Gray. Mrs. Carlisle took action right away filing to reopen my case and sent us back to mediation once again. Once the mediation report was issued our case was sent back into court and of the first time in years I had someone fighting for my rights as a mother to have my children back. Just having someone by my side in court give me self-empowerment I was able to move forward and fight for what was right. Mrs. Carlisle was extremely professional and had strong presents in the court room, she fought for exactly what I was seeking, explaining everything to me as we went along and gave sound advice on my situation. In the end my ex-husband and I were able to come to an agreement in a settlement conference before having to spend a lot more time and money at trial. Mrs. Carlisle’s services were invaluable; I could never receive this type of outcome in my case without her by my side fighting for me and my children. I highly recommend the Law Offices of Carlisle & Gray and will advocate for their services to anyone and everyone that will listen. Thank you for everything my children and I are eternally grateful!!

This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Gender Bias, Discrimination, and Games the System
Duplicity, cunning, conieving attorney at law, who is a feministic practicing misandry. Had orders of protection issued based on falacy and misused the system. Her false practices contribute to clogging the system unnecessarily, preventing true abuse cases from having their cases thoroughly examined and causing irreparable harm to children via parental alienation of good fathers. She would rather punish and line her pockets with cash than see justice prevail.

difficult to work with, poor communication, easy divorce made impossible. would not recommend
Response from Christy Carlisle June 22, 2010
The attorneys of Carlisle & Gray strive to please all clients, recognizing that may not always be possible, we regret this anonymous client's experience. Christy Carlisle also prides herself on communication and is available for clients in office, via email, and many times has made herself available for client's on weekends, after hours and via cell phone.
