I recently used Carolyn Torres-Mabe as my divorce attorney and I give her my highest recommendation. Upon my initial consultation with Carolyn I explained my objectives and she was very supportive while at the same time giving me very practical advice on the best way to proceed. My goal was to avoid court and reach a settlement agreement. With Carolyn’s extensive experience in Dekalb County Family Law she was able to recommend an excellent mediator, which we used (per insistence from my soon to be ex-wife) and give me advice on how the particular judge assigned to my case has typically handled matters in the past. In the end, we were able to reach a settlement agreement that was fair to both sides and was as a better final outcome than I was expecting.
Carolyn was my attorney during my recent divorce. She always provided valuable insight and a comforting and reassuring voice when things got really bad. I was glad to have her on my side and, just as importantly, glad my ex-wife didn’t have her as her attorney. She always responded to my inquiries in a timely manner. I hope I never need another divorce attorney but if I did I would happily retain her again.
Divorce is rarely pleasant, even under the best circumstances. Carolyn Torres-Mabe represented me in my recent divorce and I found her to be not only exceptionally knowledgeable, but highly compassionate as well. She kept me well-informed about the status of my case, next steps, and what I should expect every step of the way. She listened carefully to my concerns, synthesized those with the constraints of the law and likely actions by the other side to develop the best possible strategy – and outcome. She took a very human view of my case, which helped validate her as the best choice to represent me. I would recommend Carolyn without reservation.
Carolyn assisted me with my divorce in 2010. Not only was she an amazing attorney but a caring individual as well. Ms. Mabe was extremely knowledgeable, thorough and completed everything in a timely manner. She was very detail oriented and thought of things that never came to my mind. During this trying time, she was not only professional but very personable. […] I would highly recommend her.
Carolyn represented me in an uncontested divorce almost two years ago. I’m so fortunate that she was my attorney. Ms. Torres-Mabe’s calming demeanor — a balance of no-nonsense assertiveness and empathy– eased the divorce process. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a family law consultation.
