Carrie Sue impressed me because before I made contact with her I reached out to several other lawyers and they seemed to just be salesmen and Carrie took the time to discuss several different ways I could file for divorce that may not leave me bankrupt. I really appreciated that and thats why I ultimately chose her to help me

Chris Velasquez

Worked with me and my son with the courts for guardianship. Took time to explain all the processes thoroughly and was prompt when getting back with issues that arose. Would recommend to other special needs families!!.

One thing I hear from clients all the time is that they just don't know how to get started on their divorce.  So I created the Divorce Quiz to help you take your first step towards the next chapter in your life!

You need the "Right Fit" Attorney....

how do i pick an attorney?

Chances are you have never been through a legal case before and have no idea how to pick an attorney. Feel nervous?  Kind of scared to get started?  Worried about how much it is going to cost?
Not sure if the attorney is any good?

We have a joke in our office... is it a Carrie Sue client or a Todd client (Todd is my husband).  

Basically, I am the kind of person who wants all the resources before I make a decision and Todd wants to get you on the phone and talk to you before he makes a decision.  

Technology allows us to do so much more than when I started practicing law almost 30 years ago.

So for the "Carrie Sue" clients out there, I created this free recourse.  In fact, I have created TONS of free resources for you which is why our firm is so different than other law firms.
