Katherine Blackmon Carroll began her law career as a solo practitioner in a one-room office in the Centre Place Building in downtown Little Rock. More than two decades later, she owns the 11th floor in that same building and has built a thriving trauma-informed family law firm with an emphasis on helping clients navigate difficult times through empathy and expertise.
Family law allows Carroll to use her intelligence and creativity to develop the legal side of cases while also working with the emotional aspect of trauma that so often results when a family is disrupted through divorce and the surrounding issues. Carroll describes herself as a “fixer” and says, “I cannot let go of a problem until it is resolved.”
Carroll has carefully cultivated a group of associate attorneys and support staff who believe in the values of hard work and integrity, upon which the firm was built. The team at the Law Offices of Katherine E. Blackmon fight aggressively for their clients and, just as frequently, talk their clients through the emotions that go hand-in-hand with experiencing a divorce or custody matter.
“People may be surprised to know that while we are a tough group of attorneys, we are also a very sensitive group of people,” said Carroll. “We genuinely care not just about the case but about how our clients feel while going through it and, ultimately, how they feel when their case is over.”
