I was going through a terrible divorse my ex was abusing the justice system to cause every problem possible. Though carolyn was able to takle every situation every court hearing methodically and was able to exspose lie after lie. We were able to keep good time lines as well working with the courts to keep my sons mom undercontrol. My ex would constanly violate the parenting plan and speak very horrible of me to him which was starting to cause my son distress.
One day my ex took my son and fled the state and was off the grid. Carolyn was there for me she was able to get all the court paperwork taken care of and she made this her priority. She was going above and beyond by speaking with police, prosuccuters and helped find a private investigator. It took 7 months to get my son home and safe some . This angel over came every hurtle with getting a warrent for that crossed the state line which the prossocuter wasnt even trying to get involved by saying this is civil not criminal,and its a parent so its not kidnapping, even though custodial interferance is a felony, but Carolyn was able to force them to uphold the law so that the us marshalls were able to get involved. My son is home happy safe doesnt remeber what happened much and my family remebers the hardest times we have faced and this amazing women who made our family whole. No one could have done what she did.
Thank u for everything u have done

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 recently consulted with Carolyn about a family law matter and she was very helpful. She was knowledgeable, kind and personable. I feel very confident going forward with my case now that I have accurate information. If I needed a lawyer at this time, I would love to hire her.

If you want an attorney that will work hard for you and is very commited, then Carolyn is the one to work with. She was amazing. We had a very difficult custody case because of my ex, but Carolyn never wavered. Our daughter is 23 and going to college now to become an RN, and we couldn't be more proud of her. I believe that it was around 1995 that we started working with Carolyn for a custody dispute. She kept in touch with us and when we had went into the court room, she had fought for what was best for our daughter. Carolyn has passion about her job and helping others and I can say that I truly appreciate everything that she did for our family. Thank you so much Carolynn!!!! - Jennifer R.

We hired Carolyn in August 2014 to help us obtain 3rd party custody of our Grandson. She was super great, very informative and was readily available during the process . If we had to do this over again we would hire Carolyn to be our attorney. Final court was today and we got what we set out to achieve. Custody of our Grandson. We owe it all the Carolyn Elsey.

This Attorney was hired to help with post-secondary support. She did not keep me informed, pre-set documents for the other party to sign without my knowledge and consent. She took my case in April 2014, told me the court lost my paperwork, accused me of not paying the 2500.00 retainer when I had a receipt, my case was not heard until mid September 2014. I had told her about the need to have court before my daughter started College and as it turned out, due to her "sitting" on my case, court occured the day before my daughter started College. Then, she took an additional 2 months to get medical information to the other side. This was a nightmare for me, especially with her not letting me know what was going on the whole time.

I hired Carolyn to gain custody of my grand daughters. She immediately went to work for me and made it happen. She has recently began to help me with related issues.

I initially worked with Carolyn Elsey when I was a Designated Mental Health Professional for Pierce County (2005-2009). Despite our being on "opposite sides," I have always had a lot of respect for her ability to fight for her clients. She asked appropriate questions of her witnesses (myself included), and she made sure every proverbial stone was upturned!
Since leaving that position with the County, I have referred several people to her, and I have only gotten positive responses from them! Carolyn Elsey is a fighter, and I would hire her in a heartbeat should the occasion arise!
