Mindy’s help these past couple years has been invaluable. The high-quality work she has done for me has consistently been reflective of her legal knowledge, passion for what she does, and commitment to helping her clients during challenging situations. She makes it a point to best understand your situation, explains case-relevant laws and legal proceedings, and informs you about the varying possibilities and outcomes that could result in court or arbitration. I have always felt she has had the best interest of me and my child in mind, and that she makes it a point to provide clarity and be mindful about the advice she gives. She thoroughly examines information, dissects/corrects inconsistencies, pays attention to timeliness, and attentively listens to concerns. The legal profession is fortunate to have someone as dedicated to excellence as she is, and I have felt equally as fortunate to have had her as my lawyer.

I had a very difficult case as my ex-husband (who I had been divorced from for 10 years) who is a bully, clearly has clinical behavioral issues, and is an alcoholic who is not truthful and believes in trying to do what is right for him only, not my children. Mindy was direct and honest with me, took care of my anxiety with the situation and also squashed my ex through communication with his lawyer and full understanding of my rights and the legal system. She is kind, professional, smart, trustworthy and I would use her again and again. Although our circumstances were difficult and I did not issue the petition, I feel like we won in the end! Many thanks Mindy!

After about two years with another attorney, I turned to Mindy. She has an uncanny ability to grasp the essence of my case. She advised a strategy and listened to my concerns. We just finished a satisfactory final mediation; all in less than thirty days! She is a marvel.

Mindy is solid, a great partner! Straight forward with finesse.
She took the time to understand the needs of both sides, and was especially effective through the final stages. Helping us reach a fair agreement for both parties.
I would recommend Mindy for any scenario!

After going through one of the most difficult 16 months of my life I can honestly say I made the absolute best choice in hiring Mindy Carr. Mindy was calm, empathetic, direct and tough. I had a very complex, highly litigated divorce and Mindy was steadfast in her focus on helping me navigate an incredibly emotional and difficult process. She provided excellent counsel which included some tough reality checks as needed to keep me focused on the right things. She was a great advocate for me when it came time to fight for what was fair for me and my children. She was also very helpful in making sure I understood all aspects of my case. I would not hesitate recommending Mindy to anyone who is looking for an attorney skilled in both collaborative or highly litigated scenarios. Thank you Mindy!

Mindy represented me in a contentious, complicated, and emotionally draining parenting plan matter. She provided excellent legal advice and guidance. Mindy is understanding, responsive, kind, calm, persistent, patient, and personable. I highly recommend Mindy.

Mindy helped me avoid a very costly parenting plan revision trial. She picked up my case from a partner and went from zero to sixty in weeks in terms of her understanding of my case. I am stubborn but she was patient and flexible. Also, she knew when and how to respectfully steer me towards a more focused and logical settlement AND worked very hard with opposing counsel to get my case fairly settled. She is very soft spoken, not very demonstrative, but she is tough as nails. She is who you want in your corner.

I hired Ms. Carr to represent me for what I expected to be an amicable divorce, with child custody. We planned to mediate the settlement and have Ms. Carr draw up the filing papers. She is a smart, prepared and kind lawyer, with very responsive communication skills. She kept moving things forward with setting up documentation, writing a mutually agreeable parenting plan based on mediation, property division, planning mediation meetings and all needed paperwork. I was happy with her work, communication and cost of service.
My ex let their anxiety and narcissism take over and, instead of trusting our agreement to be amicable, hired an attorney who is a bully, very disorganized, lacked basic computer skills and who lives to create drama in her clients lives.
Once the new attorney came into negotiations, the process became more challenging for Ms. Carr. Some lawyers love a sneaky fight - Ms. Carr is not one of those lawyers. She continued to take appropriate actions to move the settlement forward, suggest legal responses to help me and maintained professional communication with the other lawyer. She was a total pro and did not let the other lawyer rattle her or change her strategy.
On occasion, I felt that I needed to drive Ms. Carr toward a more contentious strategy or push back on a financial issue when my ex's lawyer was making ridiculous demands and threats about child custody issues. Ms. Carr is a decent and considerate person - unfortunately, nasty mean family lawyers are happy to take advantage of decent people. Sometimes, the mean and nasty needs to learn that those tactics won't work. If the opposing attorney is adversarial, you might want to consult with another attorney at Ms. Carr’s firm who is willing to go all in and make it painful for them.
Once the pain started and continued, and the bills piled up, my ex decided to settle pretty quickly and cut ties with their lawyer. After that, Ms. Carr was ready to head to court within 72 hours to finalize the divorce. THAT shows you how prepared she is, and how much of an advocate she is for her clients. She never drops the ball, communicates clearly and regularly, and always keeps the process moving.
Divorce is a nasty business. I was glad to have Ms. Carr on my side.
