Eren S.
I've got to give some real talk about my attorney, Mathew. At first, he might come off a bit rough around the edges, and I won't lie, it took me a minute to get used to it. But, as time went on, I started to truly appreciate that side of him. It's like his no-nonsense approach is actually one of his strengths. He cuts through the fluff, gets down to business, and genuinely has your back. Weirdly enough, I've come to love that about him. If you want someone straightforward and fiercely on your side, Mathew's the real deal.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for the kind words and taking the time to share this!
Louis D.
I've got to share about my experience with my custody attorney, Lauren. Going through a custody battle is never easy, but Lauren was a true anchor throughout. She didn't just feed me legal jargon or false promises. She was honest from the get-go, even when the truth was hard to swallow. And you know how sometimes it feels like you're in the dark with legal stuff? Not with Lauren. She made sure I was always in the loop and understood each step. It felt like I had a friend guiding me, someone genuinely on my side. If you're diving into the maze of custody battles and need a steady hand, Lauren is the one you'd want by your side. She's been a godsend.
Response from the owner: We agree, Lauren ROCKS!
Alessandro S.
Had to write this about Mathew Work – he's such a breath of fresh air in the legal world. I've met lawyers before, but none as approachable and genuine as him. The whole time we worked together, he kept things real and was straight-up honest, no sugarcoating. It felt like having a knowledgeable friend on my side, guiding me through everything. If you're looking for someone down-to-earth and trustworthy, Mathew's your guy. So glad I found him.
Response from the owner: Mr. Work.. WORKS really hard to help all his clients. Thank you!
Welen E.
Lauren Driscoll stands out as an exemplary attorney in the realm of family law. Her intelligence and keen understanding of the intricacies of the legal system are commendable. More than her vast knowledge, it’s the way she took the time to meticulously explain the family law process to me that left a lasting impression. With Lauren, I felt informed, empowered, and confident at every turn. I can’t express enough gratitude for her guidance and support throughout the entire process. Highly recommended!
Response from the owner: Isn't she great! We are very grateful for your kind words.

Therefore, legal family matters need to be attended to with a high level of caution and care, as the outcomes are often very difficult to reverse. From the beginning, you need a Reno family law attorney who understands the divorce, custody, and child support laws in Nevada, along with the legal rights that clients have available to them.

Child Custody & Visitation Legal Representation

At Carlson & Work, we understand that child custody matters may be one of the most disputed and contentious parts of the divorce process, as they involve the most important part of your life. Our Reno child custody lawyers take the role with the understanding that our actions can have an enormous impact on your life, and more importantly, the lives of your children. Nevada Family law courts will look at the two forms of custody, alongside the external factors in your life, to determine the best custody arraignment for your child or children. The two forms of child custody are legal custody and physical custody. In summary, the outcome of each will largely be decided upon review by the court, which will heavily factor in the best interests of the child as they relate to your child custody motions.
