I recently needed to get my Pre-nup looked over by a lawyer. I initially was working with a lawyer that I got from the NYC index, He charged me the same as Cari did and was of no help. I lost my patience with him because I felt he was charging me without doing any real work or help and my deadline was approaching. I went on Avvo and found Cari. on Avvo. Because of previous reviews I decided to get counsel from her. She was quick to respond and gave me real help. I felt like she was taking care of me as she walked me through the document told me what changes she would make. She did not waste my time or money. I would 100% use her again.

I hired Cari in a hurry! I needed a last minute pre-nup and she really stepped up and took care of everything. She managed to still explain everything to me, recommended an attorney for my partner, and made herself available at all times even from the airport!! I was expecting a pre-nup attorney to be pessimistic but she was such a joy to work with and immediately put us at ease!! highly recommended!!!

After discovering unauthorized use of our farm logo on social media by an out-of-state individual with the same farm name as ours. Cari was highly recommended within the cattle industry as to whom I should contact for legal advice & hire. She resolved the logo infringement and also gave great advice on how to protect our farm logo moving forward in advertising, our website, and social media. She’s absolutely wonderful to work with! I highly would recommend her to anyone seeking Agriculture legal advice.

I needed a good divorce lawyer to help me with my divorce and after meeting Cari the first time, I already felt like I had a true advocate who really cared about me and getting me out of my awful situation. She was always available to meet with me or take my calls, and answered my emails promptly whenever I had questions. At times Cari was more on top of my divorce than I was, asking me where I was in the process of getting things finalized or signed! Cari is a truly lovely person who gave me professional, realistic, and dependable advice that I could really count on.

Friend of a friend recommended Cari as one of the best divorce lawyers in NYC. I hired Cari and I could not have been more happy with the way she performed her duties. She was confident, dedicated and whats most important she was honest. She helped me to come to terms and finalize my divorce in a very short period of time.

Finding a lawyer to rep me for a pre-nup agreement, I went through about five options before hiring Cari. She was responsive and optimistic, and right away understood my particular situation (basically: not NYC millionaires, low on personal baggage, but still getting a prenup) better than anyone else I spoke with. No negative energy, no wasted time. Great experience overall.

Kudos to Cari for her authorship, compilation and editing of Onward and Upward: Guide for Getting Through New York Divorce and Family Law Issues. Onward and Upward is designed to answer all of your questions in a language you can understand, take you through the entire process – including rebuilding your life, and do so in a manner that is most beneficial for you.

I initially met with Cari to discuss how to proceed with a premarital contract. Not only did she efficiently explain the process but she provided me with an outline of exactly what me and my partner would want to address. She reviewed my personal situation in an unbias manner but also made me feel like I had a strong representation for any legal proceedings to follow. There are so many things a person who is not actively involved in law can forget to think about prior to marriage and with a well-educated, experienced and thorough laywer such as Cari, I felt I was well-prepared to move forward with my partner (unrushed) and we were both happy with the result.

Having never met Cari, but a friend of a relative, we needed [agriculture law] advice and professional assistance on a contract. I was confident of her knowledge of the type of business we are in, and after first draft of offered contract to us, I knew that Ms. Rincker was working for us and provided the needed documents that worked on our behalf and we were able to negotiate a contract that was for the benefit for our Company. I was very pleased with her knowledge, professionalism and end product.

I walked into Cari’s office filled with trepidation about divorce and planning a life after divorce. Cari was very friendly and welcoming. She eased my concerns by explaining options such as mediation, separation agreement and divorce. After reviewing my options, I was confident Cari was the right attorney to have in my corner. She was detailed and supportive throughout a seamless divorce process, staying on top and ahead of the adversarial attorney and filing procedures; ensuring our demands were met and a judgment secured in my favor. I highly recommend Cari’s services!

I stumbled upon Cari by searching for a lawyer who might have experience with handling pet cases. It was an odd and very emotional situation and Cari was truly my savior throughout it. She was always responsive, explained all my options and oversaw the entire settlement. Most important to me, she was really understanding and nice. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

It was great working with Cari. She was very responsive to all my questions, e-mails, requested changes, etc. Cari got back to me usually within 24 hours. Her responses were detailed and clear and when changes were requested, the updated documents were turned around in day or 2. Cari is very organized and kept the project moving along. We completed the will, living will, health care proxy, and POA quickly. I would definitely recommend Cari.
– Theresa
I needed help with a contract and Cari did absolutely amazing job. She took notice of all the small details and had great ideas of how to make everything clear and to the point. She was very quick to respond and super clear. Highly recommended.

In May 2014, negotiations between my medical consulting group and a hospital quickly went astray during the 11th hour. I contacted Cari and she expedited a review and revision of this new contract. With Cari’s help, my group was able to reach a common ground with the hospital. I found Cari to be knowledgeable, timely, courteous, and professional. I highly recommend her services.
– Nik
Despite my very busy schedule, Cari managed to keep me on track to obtain all the necessary information to establish/create my last will, living will, health care proxy and power of attorney. She made the process effortless and efficient.

The entire team was very helpful, knowledgeable and professional. She’s THE great lawyer for busy professionals who want to have all their important documents ready.

If you want an attorney who you can trust, be attentive and who is not incentivized by quick resolution for the sake of getting a paycheck, then certainly choose Cari Rincker. Her passion and commitment to her clients know no bounds and her integrity is iron clad. Cari defies the perception and sometimes reality that lawyers are sleazy. Her dogged focus on my contentious two year divorce took some weight off my shoulders and allowed me time to focus on the welfare of my children. She is fair and fierce.

Cari was referred to me as a loyal , highly detailed and experienced professional. Through couple of years of helping me with my complex case, I admired her quick response, attention to details, legal knowledge and support 24/7. I have found Cari’s integrity, professionalism and expertise to be exceptional.
– Dana
Cari was extremely helpful, explained everything to me and what was necessary to make my divorce legal in USA. She is honorable , and a real professional. She made communication in writing email and a follow up call. I would recommend her services.

I spoke with many divorce lawyers before settling on Cari, and I thought she struck a great balance between respecting the way that I wanted to go through my divorce and also advocating for my best interests. I spoke with other lawyers who told me I was an idiot or didn’t know the NY legal system, but Cari was excellent. She kept me informed throughout the process and was extremely responsive to my needs – both in incorporating all of my requests into the divorce agreement and during the waiting game we played with the courts. I would highly recommend Cari if you are going through a divorce – she helped make a potentially traumatic experience into one that was as smooth as possible.
– Kat
Cari helped me create a simple pre-nup and did a great job. I especially appreciate her responsiveness by email – that was quite valuable to me. She listened to what we wanted to accomplish with this contract and provided guidance on areas we had not considered.
– Alex
I was dealing with a really tricky divorce, made even more difficult because I was living overseas, and Cari was great. I got the sense that Cari wanted this process to be as smooth as possible for me and my well-being, and I consistently felt like she was doing all she could for me. I had millions of questions and Cari was patient and clear with her responses. I hate that I had to go through this situation, but am so grateful that I hired Cari to do the work for me. She is smart, clear, and trustworthy.

I have known Ms. Rincker for several years now. She has represented me on cases also. Her work and dedication were extraordinary. She takes her job and client very serious as this is shown in the excellent job she has performed. Ms. Rincker is an exception lawyer who is very intelligent and dedicated. She has my recommendation.

I have used Ms Rincker’s services a number of times over the past several years. She has helped my company with numerous contracts, trademarks, employment issues and international legal issues. I have found her to be very knowledgeable,resourceful, and resposive to our needs. I highly recommend Cari Rincker and the services of Rincker Law, PLLC.

I’ve known Cari Rincker for the past few years and continue to be impressed by her professionalism, breadth of knowledge and experience, dedication and generosity of spirit. Many people are also drawn to Cari because of her warmth, relatedness and genuine interest in helping however she can. No doubt, anyone who engages Cari as an attorney would have an experienced advocate they could count on to give her all. And those parties who might use her services as a mediator would have the benefit of a very skilled third-party neutral. Cari’s extraordinary and I would recommend her without hesitation.

I have used Cari as my lawyer for 7 years for a variety of personal legal matters ranging from wills, estate planning and financial planning consultation. I also have used her for my business legal needs including employment law, contracts, copyright and trademark, and collections. Our business is a million dollar business with 15 employees. I have probably worked with Cari on more than 35 various matters. Each time I have been completely satisfied. She is completely trustworthy, very attentive and very knowledgeable on her subject matter. Usually she responds within hours if not minutes from my initial contact and I don’t think I have ever had to wait more than one business day to hear a response from her. I am a relatively young business owner and my company has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years. I consider Cari an integral part of my business resource arsenal and her trusted counsel has been vital to my company’s success.

I had a bad experience with another lawyer and when I had to start over I was very skeptical with the whole process. I met Cari and she explained all the steps for a pre-nup, pros and cons and how to manage it. She gave me so much hope and I felt well represented right away. After trying to get my pre-nup and dealing with it for more than 4 months, Cari helped me and did it in about a week. Me and my partner were extremely happy to have found her.

Cari was very professional and always on time, always available to answer whatever questions I had. Also very reasonable rate.

I ABSOLUTELY recommend her and I have not doubt that if I need a lawyer in the future (Hopefully not for a divorce ;) I will choose her again. Thanks so much!!!!!

Having spent weeks on end trying to find an NYC lawyer, I was pleasantly surprised after my skype consultation with Cari. Why had it taken me weeks to find a lawyer? Not because there was a legal drought in the city, but because there appeared to be a drought in respectful, considerate lawyers who actually sound like they care about your case. Most were rude, arrogant and I found myself nervous I would have to force myself to just hire someone to get the search done with. Thankfully, Cari’s informative blog on her website had a very interesting article that caught my attention and showed me she had the right experience and background for my case.

Within what felt like minutes, Cari told me right off the bat what my next move should be. With limited documents and explanation, she was able to use her knowledge and experience to give me a logical, knowledgeable advice- and this was just the consultation. She is extremely patient and was more than happy to explain anything I did not understand. The opposing attorney was just an awful human being, but despite having to deal with him on numerous occasions, Cari maintained her professionalism and managed to make me feel calm when things got rough. I definitely need to take some classes in anger management from her.

My divorce was going on almost two years of monthly hearings in New York City, with no real progress. I didn’t know what was going on with my case and the attorney I hired was steering me in the wrong direction. Out of desperation to get my divorce, I started Pro Se consulting with Cari. After our initial call, she sent me a complimentary edition of her book “Onward and Upward”. Her book is without a doubt, the bible for anyone brave enough to tackle the New York State divorce system. From Cari, I acquired more informational tools to add to my divorce arsenal than I ever got from the attorney I hired to represent me through the course of 2 years! After only a few Skype calls with Cari, I fired my attorney and within a month negotiated a successful divorce on my own at court! If you need solid advice on how to negotiate a successful divorce on your own, you must call Cari. I wish I had met her 2 years earlier!
