The Carlin Group provides relentless representation in family law matters such as divorce, child custody disputes, and adoption cases. Offering nearly thirty years of experience representing clients in family law, we bring excellence to every case. I have successfully represented clients through marital pre-nups, post-nups, child custody disputes, adoption, restraining orders, divorces, and post-divorce modifications.

Practicing divorce and family law since 1991, I have handled thousands of cases and acquired vast trial experience, but because it is usually better for the client and their families, we make all efforts to settle matters out of court. Whether a case can be put to rest in mediation or the situation is pursued through litigation, I seek to achieve the best possible result for my clients with respect to all parties involved.
