Carpe Diem Paralegals Law Firm

Our Vision

Ours is a job that requires experience, professionalism, and continuous updating of knowledge. We are convinced that excellence can be achieved chiefly through specialisation in specific areas, especially in a moment such as this of economic crisis.
Throughout the years, we have acquired a significant amount of experience, specifically in all the sectors of Family Law.

Our secret to success lies in our commitment and passion, which we utilise daily in our business, and which is driven by a strong sense of duty.

We believe this is the only way to guarantee quality in the shortest possible time. Mastering the art of dialogue has set us apart, along with our ability to communicate effectively with clients and counterparties, giving all involved the attention necessary.

Quality, timeliness and precision are the values that have always characterized our work, mirroring the harmony found in an orchestra, where the contribution of each individual is essential. These values drive our continual research to find solutions which can reconcile the different interests involved.

The Glory of a Good Lawyer

Is to Win a Bad Trial.

( Balzac)

Value 01.


We believe that the essential elements at the basis of a fruitful relationship between paralegal and client are trust, transparency and continuous dialogue.

In each case, we pay particular attention to the preliminary examination of the matter in order to propose a "tailor-made" solution for the specific case. For this reason, from the outset, we discuss with the customer and involve him in choosing the most appropriate strategy to satisfy his true interests in the affair.

We present to our clients the possible and realistic developments and evaluate with them the most appropriate paths to take.
