Her family law experience also includes the preparation and review of prenuptial agreements, as well as helping domestic violence victims who are seeking protective orders from the court. Ms. McCarthy's successful track record has earned her the respect of her colleagues, who have awarded her a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo. In addition, she has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America since 1995. A frequent presenter on family law topics at continuing legal education seminars and a published author of legal articles, Ms. McCarthy is a fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
