Our Clients

What They’re Saying

Carrie is the only attorney I would trust with an adoption. She made herself available to me to offer encouragement and advice throughout our foster care journey, and once DFCS turned over our paperwork to her, Carrie went above and beyond to have my son’s adoption finalized quickly, yet with appropriate attention to detail and accuracy. After finalization, she helped with obtaining his new legal documents and has continued to be available to answer my questions as a new adoptive parents. Carrie’s heart for children and families is evident in her words and in her work.

Melissa Trussell

After our international adoption, Carrie was extremely helpful in completing our stateside paperwork. She was very knowledgeable about the necessary legal procedures and able to easily guide us. She also helped us acquire the state of Georgia birth certificate. We recommend Carrie to any family walking through adoption and the court systems.
