Carrie Block

Managing Partner, Certified Family Law Specialist, Trial Attorney

Family Law Attorney

Carrie Block is the managing partner at the Orange County office of matrimonial law firm Holstrom, Block & Parke. With more than 20 years’ experience in top-tier family law firms, Block is an expert in all areas of family law, including divorce, custody, child support, spousal support, paternity and premarital rights. Her practice at HBP focuses on high asset family divorce, collaborative divorce and mediation in Orange County.

Block specializes in representing clients in agreed-upon divorces, post-judgment modifications, enforcement of existing orders and premarital agreements. As a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO) expert, she is highly qualified to resolve unique issues that 401(k)’s, pensions and benefits present in divorce. Block’s expertise allows her to complete QDROs without outside experts, allowing difficult negotiations regarding retirement funds to be completed earlier in the divorce process.

Block received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1990 and earned her Juris Doctor degree from Loyola Law School in 1993.

Block was awarded the status of “California Certified Family Law Specialist” by the California Board of Legal Specialization. Only a small percentage of all California family law attorneys achieve “Certified Specialist” status. To be certified by the State Bar of California, Block passed a rigorous exam and demonstrated a high level of experience and achievement in the area of Family Law.

Carrie looks forward to representing clients to the best of her ability and helping them achieve the legal outcomes they seek. With compassion and sensitivity, Carrie helps her clients navigate through the difficult transition of divorce so that they can move forward into a brighter future.
