Caroline G. Beauchamp
Because no single approach to divorce is right for everyone, Caroline provides her clients with individually-tailored strategies for addressing their goals, while, in every case, maintaining a focus on privacy, protecting children and preserving assets. She advocates for her clients, with integrity and respect, in order to minimize the financial and emotional impact of divorce.
A founding partner of McCarter Beauchamp, Caroline’s unique academic background and professional experience enable her to provide clients with creative solutions in cases involving high net worth individuals, family-owned and closely-held businesses, stock options, deferred compensation plans, intellectual property and real estate holdings. While in law school at Vanderbilt University, Caroline was enrolled in the Law and Business Program, taking numerous classes at Owen Graduate School of Management and earning a certificate in Law and Business along with her Doctorate of Jurisprudence. Prior to founding McCarter Beauchamp, Caroline practiced in the areas of business, entertainment and insurance law at Kay, Griffin, Enkema and Brothers, PLLC. Since founding McCarter Beauchamp in 2008, she has focused on applying her business acumen to family law cases.
