Excellent QDRO Results
Emily Carrara is to be counted on to deliver results. She is highly competent, trustworthy, collaborative, and yet not afraid to be strong on points that have proper merit. She has an excellent understanding of IL QDRO, significant ability to quickly grasp complex situations and distill them into actionable items for your best interest. My situation was a decade old, required opposing lawyer work, court appearances, multiple 401K company ownership, and of course - emotion. She properly educated herself on all counts, provided accurate assessments and expectations .... delivering results in the end. I would highly recommend Emily Carrara!
Thank you, Emily
I hired Emily Carrara for my divorce proceedings. In the course of these proceedings, she drafted two QDRO's, one for a pension and one for a supplemental retirement fund. She also wrote a proposed settlement agreement and made herself available to contact and answer questions that my husband had. I believe that her skill, tact, and sensitivity really made the difference in my case. Her advice was sound, my case did not escalate in cost, and my husband and I were able to settle the divorce amicably. Thank you, Emily, for facilitating the resolution of a difficult and potentially contentious process. My case ended as well as it could have.
Since the beginning, Emily has been an outstanding support. I have been represented by several lawyers, but once I started working with her it became clear I was at the right office. She has integrity, compassion, empathy and sympathy with a genuine interest at heart for your story. What I like most is that she allows me to give input, and explains the impact of decisions. I can honestly say, I feel comfortable with Emily's representation and trust her. Her staff is always friendly and professional. I highly recommend Emily to represent you in court.
