Carol Hafizi, Paralegal

We are fortunate to have Carol as part of our team.  She brings many years of legal experience, including family law. When she first starting working in family law, she knew then that this was the legal field that she wished to work in so she can help people.

Carol is originally from Kent, England and moved to the United States as an adult.  She spent her high school years in boarding school, then attended junior college in Greenwich, London.  She is a busy soccer Mom with three boys.  Two of her boys are in college and one is in middle school.  She enjoys spending weekends with her family traveling to club soccer games (or football, as she calls it in England), cooking and exploring the City.
