Jarica was GREAT at handling things very carefully

Jarica was GREAT at handling things very carefully, if there are assets, children, relationships, that need either handled delicately or firmly, she will know exactly what to do to protect you and do her best to keep you out of an elongated battle and minimize trauma to all involved parties.– Thomas Conely

Very professional. Recommended to all. Thanks for everything– Eric Birkner

Anybody is in good hands with this guy.

Joe represented the responded and I was the petitioner. Family court was the worst experience of my life and dealing with my child’s Mother in court was a roller coaster. But Joe is a stand up guy, treated me with respect and dignity, and I could clearly see he always had our son’s interest in mind. Anybody is in good hands with this guy.– Joshua Doer

Joe is awesome!

I am a victim of domestic violence and Joe treated me like I was his only client, which i definitely wasn’t! He treated me with respect and, most importantly, empathy. I feel like he became part of my family. He pretty much held my hand through everything. He really is an awesome lawyer. I recommend him 100%. He handled everything – from the injunction to the child custody to the divorce. He never made me feel like and idiot :).– Jessica

The attorney you WANT by your side during your divorce process!

My Family Law attorney is one of the best attorneys I have ever seen!! Every time we go to a hearing, mediation or any other court appearance, I always feel protected by someone who is willing to go to battle for my best interests and to tirelessly continue fighting for the best possible outcome for my case. Every time the Opposing Counsel (OC) sends a request for a hearing, MORE information, or some other request that is meant to intentionally aggrevate me, it’s good to be able to review the documents with Joe so he can help me understand what the other side is entitled to and what they are not. Conversations with Joe always help put things in perspective so that the process is less scary. Joe Cairns with Cairns Law PA is who I’d recommend to anyone (EXCEPT MY SOON-TO-BE-EX WIFE) who is in need of assistance with family law issues. That includes divorce, child custody, child support (both initial and modifications), alimony (both initial and modifications) and even assistance with domestic violence. The experts at Cairns Law can handle it ALL– Charles

Thank God he was there!

I recently found myself in unfortunate circumstances regarding an ex-boyfriend and I needed to file an injunction against him for domestic violence. I had never dealt with any thing like this before and it was confusing, scary and a bit overwhelming. Although I asked for advice through the police dept. counseling personnel and realized I could go through steps and forms and a hearing myself, I am so glad I was not alone and Joseph Cairns was there to represent me. I was nervous about the entire process and didn’t know what was considered relevant or necessary for the court to make a decision in my favor. Joe was very patient and understanding when hearing the details of my somewhat embarrassing personal story and made me feel comfortable and reassured. When the hearing date and time arrived I was even more stressed out and nervous then I thought I’d be and thankfully Joe met me there early and was even protective before the hearing began. It was extremely comforting having him beside me in the unfamiliar atmosphere of the front of the courtroom especially with my ex standing on other side starring at me. Thanks to Joe, I feel I was so prepared that my ex must have known and what I thought would be a dramatic, horrific and even tearful display of emotion on either or both sides became a diplomatic and swift verdict. We won! I can never thank him enough because I know things would not have gone the way they did if he hadn’t been there. If I could ever offer anyone advice if they were going through a similar situation I would recommend wholeheartedly to get help from Joe. You need to have someone on your side whom is willing to fight for you and protect you. Thanks Joe (and Jarica too), I owe you!– Domestic Violence Client

Not your average divorce attorney

Unfortunately my son will be getting a divorce. Through another referral I sent my son to Joe’s firm and the kind of language my son used to describe how he was treated and the fast action taken as well as the advice were not typical of my son. He used words like “wow, he’s good”, “got straight down to business and I had an agreement ready to be delivered in 24 hours”. He took great pains to walk him through every immediate detail and asked important questions about what he really wanted to have happen in the future. While it sounds not that uncommon, I assure you it is! If you need someone who cares and gets the job done, then Joe should be your next call.– Scott

Better than I could have hoped for! 🙂

I hired Joseph about a month ago for a nasty divorce which I am in the process of. She has filed false claims and with the help from Joseph we were able to have them dismissed in court. While we are still working on the divorce, I have to say he feels like more than a hired attorney. He has answered any questions, always offered his time beyond what was expected and has given honest inputs and opinions. He gives off the feeling that you are his only client with how much he seems invested in your case. Without his help thus far I feel as if this entire divorce would be out of my hands and I would be losing my daughter which is the most important part of my life. I would recommend him to any and everyone and wish I could as I feel like I owe him something for how great he has been,– Michael

Joe is awesome!

Couldn’t have been better– Lauren

If your looking for a lawyer, STOP NOW!!

If your looking for a lawyer, STOP NOW!! I consulted a few lawyers and let’s just say they were looking at my wallet not my issues. When I spoke to Jarica I knew I found my lawyer. Jarica never once told me things to get more money from me. She had my kids and my best interests at heart. Jarica from the first meeting until the end stayed true to her word and went above and beyond in making sure that she was on top of things all the time. I want to thank you Jarica for an awesome job well done.– Chris Morelli


As a father seeking sole custody, it can be a difficult journey. My wife and I met with Jarica to explain our situation and immediately following our consultation we knew that Jarica was exactly what we needed. Jarica is extremely intelligent and sly. Aside from being extremely down to earth she knows all of the in’s and out’s of family law. She was very realistic in explaining what to expect and anticipated every thing that the judge wanted and/or planned to ask for. She truly exceeded our expectations and was an absolute beast in the court room. She was always available to answer any questions that we had. I would recommend her to anyone.– Anonymous

Top notch divorce attorney.

When I was seeking a divorce from my husband, I interviewed four or five different attorneys for my case. I chose Jarica Cairns because she provided brilliant responses to my concerns about my divorce. Hiring Jarica Cairns for my divorce was one of the best decisions that I had made during this difficult time in my life. This attorney was very responsive to my needs and she also provided a lot of research, due diligence, and brilliant strategies to get closure from my ex. I would highly recommend this attorney to represent anyone seeking a divorce of any complexity.– Veronica

Excellent Attorney

Like many people in need of a lawyer I went online to see which attorneys offered free consultations. The good news was that most lawyers give these free consultations although to my dismay, I wasn’t really on the same page as any one of them. That is until my call back from Jarica Cairns. It became very clear to me only 5 minutes into the conversation that Jarica was extremely bright, sharp, knew the law exceptionally well and was very caring. Our initial consultation was quite lengthy and at no point did she try and rush me off the phone. I felt like for the first time I had someone by my side that was going to give her all to get the results I wanted. My situation was that I was trying to have my ex’s petition to modify child support dismissed since he filed in Florida and none of us are residents of Florida. While every other attorney tried to convince me to keep it in Florida and that it would be too complicated to dismiss, Jarica immediately said to me, “Florida has no subject matter jurisdiction” end of story. Jarica came prepared for our day in court. She managed to tear through my ex’s paltry attempt at claiming Florida domicile in addition to submitting appropriate case law. End result: His petition to modify child support was dismissed for lack of subject matter Jurisdiction which is exactly what Jarica had told me in our initial consultation. It’s because of my recent experience with Jarica Cairns that I highly recommend her to anyone in need of an attorney.– Erica

Absolute Beast in the Courtroom

Jarica is extremely intelligent and sly, she anticipated everything that the judge wanted and had planned. She is very down to earth and was always available anytime we had any questions. She lays it all out very clear and is very realistic with expectations. She is an absolute beast in the court room and met every expectation that we had. We would recommend her to anyone!– Kim

Brilliant Divorce Attorney

If you need a brilliant divorce or child custody attorney, call Cairns Law Group. Jarica Cairns helped me beyond measure. This Family Law Group is the best in town.– Veronica L

This is where I would go… without a second thought.

I have known both Jarica and Joe for several years. As an attorney, I do family law on a small scale (not my main practice area)… but whenever I have a client with big issues or a complex case, I send them to Cairns Law. Both of these attorneys are honest and fair. They fight for their clients like they are fighting for a family member… but the real key is they know the law inside and out. They don’t do anything but family law and it shows. These two folks will tell you the truth about your case and will be there every step of the way. If I needed a family law attorney for myself, this is where I would go… without a second thought.– Another Attorney
