Carrie Block| Holstrom, Block & Parke, APLC - How to file for divorce in California?

What are some qualities that make you stand out as an attorney? My strength as an attorney is, I know when we can negotiate a case and when we need to prepare to litigate. You've always got to be preparing for litigation because you never know when the settlement's going to break down. So I work in both worlds. I'm willing to settle a case if it's the right thing for my client but if not, we're ready to go to war and litigate the case.

What are your favorite types of cases? I like dealing with complicated cases, whether it be someone with a lot of assets including business, including property that might be all over the country, all over the world. I like dealing with complicated payroll, when they get paid with stock options and things like that. I like dealing with complicated custody cases where people live far apart from each other.

What made you pursue a career in law? I decided to go to law school because I wanted to do something in my life to help people. To help people with problems they had in their lives. People who are going through their divorce are having a very difficult time, and the right lawyer can help them through that difficult time. What made you pursue a career in law? | Carrie S.

Why did you choose to specialize in family law? The thing I like most about family law is that every day is different. One day I'm dealing with a domestic violence case, the next day I might be dealing with child custody. And sometimes I'm dealing with high-asset, financial cases with people that have billion-dollar businesses that we're dividing and figuring out what they earn to get support going.
