Marc J. Poles, Esq.
"Carrie Schultz is a very thoughtful and intelligent person. She is someone you can trust to listen to you and make sure she understands your particular situation. "
I’ve known Carrie for several years. I hope I’ll never need Carrie’s services but I know a few people that have used her in their divorce proceedings and were all extremely happy with her professionalism and with the results.
As soon as I spoke with Carrie Schultz and Marc Poles, I knew I had made the right choice. They are both professional, extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. I highly recommend Schultz & Associates to anyone needing legal help!
Very knowledgeable, and always did a good job of explaining the process, as well as my options. Helped facilitate a smooth resolution in a fair manner with everyone’s best interests in mind.
Three words come to mind when I think of Carrie Schultz – ethics, integrity, and compassion. Family law thrives on opinions and egos of the parties involved. I have seen Carrie navigate that expertly by taking emotions (and therefore cost) out of the equation, and also offer excellent insights and suggestions to prevent and/or diffuse volatile situations. Her approach is not divisive (which is the first thing attorneys naturally tend to be) and is about the benefit of all involved in the situation, which does 3 amazing things: 1) never takes advantage of the client’s emotional vulnerability, 2) grounds the thinking and drives an objective decision, and 3) is remarkable in its effectiveness in the overall result I recommend her very highly. I have also been impressed by the promptness and responsiveness of her colleagues and staff at the firm.
Highly Recommended! I would highly recommend Marc Poles to anyone that is in need of a matrimonial attorney. Not only is Marc very knowledgeable but he cares about his clients. He is very responsive to phone calls and he is always there to answer any questions his clients may have. Great attorney!
Success! I was having trouble collecting child support for my two children. Marc helped to get my ex-husband into the probation system. My children will now get the support they so rightfully deserve! It was a pleasure working with Marc and his firm. He is extremely knowledgeable in the behind the scenes working of the entire process which provided me with a level of comfort and capability.
Marc Poles and Carrie Schultz help me get through one of the most difficult ordeals of my life. Not only did I want a divorce from my addict husband, but more importantly, I wanted full custody of our child. Thanks to their expertise and support, we got it and now I can move forward in my life. I'm extremely grateful to them.
Marc has been more than a lawyer to me every step of the way. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and genuine. I cannot say anything negative about him. Whenever I needed him, he was there! He has never let me down. I recommend him without hesitation. He truly is a fantastic lawyer!
A Child Custody Client
Marc Poles is very knowledgeable and took the time to make sure I was comfortable and understood what was going on.

Carrie is a highly professional and thoughtful attorney, who has taken the time to work through and discuss my options so that my best interests are met. Based on my experiences, I highly recommend her for both conventional and challenging family law needs.

Carrie was informative, caring and immediately responsive. She helped me keep my daughter from being removed from NJ against my will and without my knowledge. She assisted me in exercising my rights as a parent and a father. "She's Great"
Absolutely wonderful! After my consultation with Carrie, I knew I made the right choice! She was so helpful! I had absolutely no idea what I was doing, and she made sure to make me aware of anything and everything to make sure I was well prepared. If your looking for an excellent lawyer, who is knowledgeable I absolutely recommend Carrie!
"Mr. Poles represented me recently and the outcome was only what I imagined in a dream. He never promised me anything but from the moment he explained our defense I knew I had picked the correct Attorney. He was precise, professional and extremely intelligent. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome of my case!!! Truly, he is a miracle Attorney and a gift from God in Heaven. This man got his profession correct!!!!! Thank God for Mr. Poles!!!!!

"I was having trouble collecting child support for my two children. Marc helped to get my ex-husband into the probation system. My children will now get the support they so rightfully deserve! It was a pleasure working with Marc and his firm. He is extremely knowledgeable in the behind the scenes working of the entire process which provided me with a level of comfort and capability."
"Carrie possesses the rare ability to quickly change an emotionally complex and confusing legal situation into a well structured and sensible process. She sympathizes with the human aspect of personal matters, never losing sight of a client's ultimate goals and motivations. Within minutes of our opening phone call, I went from frightened and full of worry to confident and knowledgeable about my situation and legal rights. Unlike many other lawyers, Carrie does not apply unnecessary pressure to move a case forward, but rather encourages her clients to fully understand their emotions to ensure they are making a sound decision before proceeding with what are often life altering legal decisions. Ultimately, my experience working with Carrie was superior. In addition to being a highly skilled and effective attorney, she is a real person who is relatable, kind, and focused on a client's long-term happiness."
"Thank you Carrie Schultz for your warm and knowledgeable help in finding me referrals! I would highly recommend you to others seeking your expertise."
