    I have observed Carla Schiff in practice as a lawyer representing the Plaintiff when she represented the Defendant in a divorce; as a Guardian ad litem appointed to report to the Court on the best interests of the children of Ms. Schiff's client in two contested custody actions; and, most recently, as a Judicial Officer in the Fulton Superior Court Family Division. She has always demonstrated great ability in each of the matters in which I have been involved with her, and she is very ethical.
