Senior Associate Attorney
Kristen Carr is a Senior Associate at Varghese Summersett Family Law Group, where she patiently guides clients through life-altering family matters, including divorce, child custody disputes, property division, and adoptions. Kristen understands that family law involves sensitive, and often complex, issues that can be highly emotional for clients. Her compassion, coupled with years of courtroom experience, makes her an excellent advocate for her clients and their children.
Kristen has handled hundreds of family law matters and is skilled in all aspects of case resolution, including trial, mediation, and negotiation. She listens to each client’s unique situation and will devise the best strategy moving forward, whether that means working to reach an amicable agreement or aggressively litigating the case in court.
In addition to being a skilled family law attorney and licensed mediator, Kristen is also a devoted wife and mother with a strong commitment to her community. She was born and raised in North Texas. She attended Grapevine High School, where she met her high school sweetheart, and now husband. After high school, she attended Texas Tech University where she graduated Summa Cum Laude and was the highest-ranking graduate in her class. Afterward, she returned to North Texas and obtained her law degree from Texas A&M School of Law.
During her legal career, Kristen has developed passions in two niche areas of family law – protective orders and adoptions. The first allows her to help bring peace and protection to victims of family violence. The latter enables her to help families grow through the addition of a child. One of Kristen’s favorite days of the year is National Adoption Day when she volunteers to be the attorney monitor for adoptions in Tarrant County.
Kristen and her husband have two young sons and one dog child – a red Labrador named Rose.
