Attorney Profile

The founder and senior attorney at the law office of Carolyn S. Zisser, Ms. Zisser applies more than three decades of experience to the family law cases she handles. Her firm was the first in the area to focus exclusively on issues such as divorce for people in Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra Beach and Jacksonville, Florida.

A member of The Florida Bar and the American Bar Association's Family Law Section, Ms. Zisser not only learns about current trends, but also shares her experiences with peers. She is a sought-after lecturer and has published a number of works related to her practice.

Ms. Zisser graduated cum laude in 1969 with a Bachelor of Arts in philosophy and political science from New York University. She again graduated cum laude in 1972, this time with a Juris Doctor from The George Washington University Law School.

At her law office, Ms. Zisser reviews the challenges families are facing and develops ways to overcome them. She has helped numerous clients formulate parenting plans, make post-judgment modifications, and value and divide property. All the while, she maintains a sensitivity about the emotional and financial circumstances of those she represents.

Noted for her success, Ms. Zisser holds an Avvo "Superb" rating; she has received the highest peer rating possible of AV Preeminent* from Martindale-Hubbell; and the Jacksonville Business Journal listed her as one of the Top Ten Divorce Lawyers. She is admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit and the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

Outside her practice, Ms. Zisser is highly involved with an organization that benefits members of the Jacksonville Symphony.
