Your Trusted Family Law Attorney

Carl Joseph Gaul III

  • Sole Practitioner

Carl listens to his clients.  He knows how important each case is to that client.  Good results come from hard work.  Carl takes the time to explain the law to his clients so they know their rights and the process.


Carl’s work is to represent people.  After spending five years in criminal prosecution, Carl has spent over 30 years helping individuals in some of their most important relationships, and some of their most important problems.  These are Family Law and Criminal Defense. 


For more than three decades Carl has represented people in their family law cases.  Family law is much more than divorces.  In addition, Carl has won many cases where he represented fathers seeking primary care of their children.  Carl represents third-party nonparents seeking custody of children.  Carl has won property divisions awarding his client significantly more than half the community property.  Family law includes determining parentage, establishing parenting plans and assuring fair child support.  Carl has litigated these claims successfully and has mediated many favorable settlements.


When criminal difficulties arise, Carl can help.  As a prosecutor he learned criminal law and procedure.  In private practice he has used that knowledge to help his clients defend allegations of criminal misconduct.  The most frequent involve assaults and alcohol.  Carl applies his history of successful litigation to solve these cases.
