Carol was so professional in the way she handled my case, when a confrontation aroused, she managed the situation in a manner that made me feel comfortable and secure. At the end of the mediation, I ended up paying only a fraction of the money I would have spent if I had gone to court, the stress was reduced to a minimum and we were able to solve differences that for many years were stumbling blocks.


Having firsthand knowledge of what it takes going through litigation and now using mediation, I definitely recommend to anybody dealing with legal family matters to give mediation a try, it is worth it, especially if the mediator has the experience of someone like Carol Hickman.


I just wanted to THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for everything you have done for helping me get through this. The support, reassurance and action you took was tremendous and helped me sleep at night knowing that you had given me piece of mind. The job you do is unbelievable.


Thank you Carol, your assistance was great and the Collaborative process really helped. Everyone looked for solutions and I think we obtained a very fair result. Thank you for all your help and guidance.

Carol, it has been a long, hard haul. I’m glad it’s finally over and we have you to thank for it.


There are not enough words to say thank you … I am so glad I have had you to help me fight for my kids, you have made a difference, without you all of this would have been impossible … Carol, you have made a difference in my life but most of all in I. and N.’s life! … Thank you very much for being supportive and believing in me!


I met with Ms. Carol Hickman for an hour seeking consultation. Ms. Hickman immediately impressed me as a person of high integrity, wisdom and professionalism. From that consultation, I sought her services … she was always extremely well prepared, informed and up to date, not only on the details of my case but on all the current laws and case law … having worked with numerous lawyers over the years, there are very few that can match Ms. Hickman’s expertise as a lawyer. My impression of her integrity, knowledge and professionalism has never wavered … Sincerely …


Wow. I can’t say enough about Carol. Truly an incredible lady in every sense of the word. Extremely professional, kind, sensitive, caring, understanding and wise. I have been truly blessed by meeting her. The entire experience was “peaceful”.


After many years of dealing with court proceedings and spending a large amount of money trying to finalize child support and custody issues as well as separation of assets, my lawyer suggested using the services of Carol Hickman. I think this was the best decision I have taken in a long time.
