Family law is unique in the sense that there are multiple avenues to reach the finish line. Getting creative on possible resolutions is not only possible, but generally encouraged in my practice.
Robinson & Henry Partner and Family Law Attorney Marlana A. Caruso hails from Virginia where humble beginnings taught her the value of hard work and education.
Marlana’s career has focused on the area of family law. She brings with her a wealth of knowledge about domestic litigation; including adoptions, assisted reproduction technologies, appeals, and more. Prior to joining Robinson & Henry, Marlana worked for the country’s largest domestic litigation law firm.
Family law is a challenging area of practice. It takes a compassionate and assertive attorney to help individuals navigate some of the most difficult times of their lives. Marlana finds the rapport she develops with her clients reduces their stress and creates a foundation for a favorable outcome for their case.
In addition to helping Robinson & Henry clients, Marlana remains active in the community. She has been recognized by the Colorado Supreme Court for her pro bono activities. Marlana also mentors new and upcoming law students, teaches litigation skills and techniques to current lawyers, and is an active participant in several bar associations across the state.
“Marlana and her team embodied the perfect combination of grace and expertise while handling my divorce. Quick response time, accurate answers, and practical/diplomatic suggestions . . . all of which I greatly appreciated.” – Margaret
“Amazing! Marlana Caruso was very polite and so helpful! ICWA is an issue in my case. Many of the local attorneys were very hesitant on taking on my case because of ICWA. Marlana was familiar with ICWA and how it would possibly impact my case and was willing to help!” – Erika
“Robinson and Henry was great! Marlana was my attorney and she was fantastic. Very responsive and knowledgeable.” – Cody
“We have been working with Marlana Caruso and her team for about a year and a half now. The reason that it has taken so long was completely out of Marlana’s hands, due only to matters involving another state. We have had great luck with all members of team Caruso, but have worked primarily with Marlana and Gretchen, who have always been available for us when we need them. Marlana is very intelligent and skilled in family law. She also has great instinct concerning strategy and human nature. We’ve worked closely with her for so long that she seems like a friend, but she certainly knows how and when to turn “professional businesswoman.” Again, the reasons for such a long delay were completely out of her hands and now that it is all in Colorado, things are happening much faster. We’re 100% satisfied with Marlana and Team Caruso, as well as Robinson and Henry in general. We have never had a problem with billing or payment and with each contact at R&H, things were explained very well. No offense, Marlana, but we look forward to ending our relationship! (In the right way, of course!)” – Karen
“Very kind, friendly, open, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I appreciate the time that was taken to answer all of my questions and the willingness to walk me through everything. Highly recommend!” – Leavitta
