"I possess a unique understanding of representing family law litigants, because I previously worked as the Family Law Research Attorney in Monterey County. This experience has provided me with insight into Monterey County court operations, and has enabled me to develop working relationships with court employees as well as bench officers. My practice focuses exclusively on Monterey County, and its procedures, rules, and policies. For the past 26 years, I have worked in the legal field in various capacities such as a courtroom clerk, paralegal, civil research attorney, insurance defense attorney, contract attorney, family law research attorney, judge pro tem, mediator and litigator. Each legal role has provided experience in understanding the legal process and court system, and Carolyn Harrisenabled me to search for better ways to offer services to meet your needs."
