This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
This means the attorney did something wrong, but the Bar did not suspend the lawyer. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Carolyn’s comment: “The event Avvo refers to actually occurred in 1996, not 2002. As a brand-new lawyer, I accidentally misfiled a document and thus gave a court inaccurate information. The person who filed the grievance waited 3 years to do so and the disciplinary process took another 4 years. I believe Avvo's system is misleading as different states' disciplinary systems take differing lengths of time.”

Carolyn is a very kind and compassionate person. She is not afraid to freely share her vast knowledge of the legal system and it's procedures, and she willingly goes out of her way to help others, both personally and professionally, with no strings attached. If you're looking for a compassionate attorney that will aggressively fight for you, this woman is the one for you!!

Carolyn stepped into a trail situation and did a great job dealing with a unhealthy set of circumstances. She was professional at all times.

Carolyn supported me and my family during a stressful, frightening time involving a domestic violence restraining order. She weeded through the smoke screens whilst remaining focused on me and my children's safety and welfare. She is honest and takes her job seriously.

I endorse this lawyer. I have had the pleasure of working with Carolyn as a mediator and also as an attorney opposite me on a case. I am very impressed by Carolyn's work ethic, integrity and her knowledge of complex family law issues. I find her highly qualified as a lawyer.
