Protect your interests with a Fort Lauderdale family law and divorce attorney

Having started his legal career primarily as a business and real estate lawyer, Fort Lauderdale family law attorney Justin C. Carlin began representing clients in family law proceedings in response to the incredible demand in the marketplace for family lawyers well-versed in business and real estate litigation. Since 2010, Mr. Carlin has represented numerous clients in divorce and family law proceedings involving complicated equitable distribution and support issues. Dozens upon dozens of these cases have been settled through the use of alternative dispute resolution (including pre-suit negotiations and mediation) and, when it has been in the clients’ best interests, after a bench trial.

Somewhat different from the other areas of law in which the Firm practices, representing clients in family law cases affords us with the opportunity to protect what is most important to our clients: their families. Perhaps more than many other areas of law, family law frequently changes in the State of Florida. In addition, family law litigation—which is subject to its own unique rules of procedure—often raises novel questions of constitutional importance involving the transfer of property, jurisdiction, and due process of law. With so much at stake, it’s imperative that parties to a family law case select an attorney who is well-versed in family law.
