Fighting for a Secure Future

With Strong Legal Representation

Carolyn N. Budnik

A native of South Florida, I bring 19 years of experience as an attorney to the table. A sampling of my clients includes financial institutions, private investors, small businesses, condominiums, and homeowners' associations, and individuals. I vigorously represent my clients across the foreclosure, bankruptcy, real estate, insurance, and commercial litigation spectrums.

Before becoming an attorney, I worked in many fields in South Florida. I worked in the auto parts industry, the boating industry, and the equine industry to name a few. I finally realized I needed a set trade and set my mind on becoming a legal secretary/paralegal. I eventually attended law school at Nova Southeastern University at night, while working full time as a paralegal, and raising my family. I look back on those years now and wonder how I did it! As a resident of South Florida my entire life, I have been fortunate to enjoy the many outdoor opportunities Florida has to offer. My first passion is my love for all things "horses," my second is for all things "Ocean/Everglades/Nature" and my third is for "motorcycles." I consider myself a home-grown Florida girl.

"I will stand up and fight for my clients every step of the way."

My rates are reasonable and can be tailored to your specific needs. Depending on the type of matter for which you need representation, I accept reasonable retainers, down payments and monthly payment plans. In addition to regular forms of payment, I accept most major credit cards.

I am licensed to practice law in all Florida state courts, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of Florida; the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Florida; the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Middle District of Florida; and the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Florida.

I look forward to serving your legal needs. Please feel free to contact me at carolyn@cbudlaw.com or give me a call at (954) 245-0761. Thank you.
