Carrie A. Hackett, Esq.

Carrie Anderson Hackett founded Hackett & Wine, LLC with Ashley Wine in 2012, after working for other metro-Atlanta family law criminal defense firms. Carrie and Ashley founded Hackett & Wine to provide diligent, effective, compassionate representation to domestic clients in Fulton, Cobb, Forsyth, Gwinnett, Cherokee, and DeKalb Counties. Carrie is a certified domestic mediator and a Guardian ad Litem, which is a person appointed by the Court to investigate and make a recommendation about which custodial situation would be best for the minor children involved in a family law case.

Before founding Hackett & Wine, LLC, Carrie worked for a number of criminal defense and family law firms as an associate and as a partner. She has successfully handled hundreds of criminal cases ranging from DUI to vehicular homicide and rape. Carrie's criminal law experience has helped her domestic clients, particularly when there are interrelated issues of domestic violence, protective orders, or sexual allegations that could impact the custody outcome for a client. Since Carrie transitioned to a solely family law practice in 2011, she has resolved hundreds of domestic cases ranging from high asset divorces, to custody modifications, to contempt. Carrie is a comfortable and passionate trial lawyer and an effective advocate for all people facing a financial or custody battle.

Carrie's professional experience as a domestic lawyer, coupled with her personal experience as a divorced parent gives her a deeper insight and empathy when performing her Guardian ad Litem work and as a domestic mediator. Carrie enjoys getting to know the parents and children she interacts with and comes up with creative solutions to facilitate parenting time between both parents and their children.

Carrie Hackett graduated from Emory University's School of Law in 2006, where she was on the Dean's List. She graduated from Tulane University in 2003, cum laude with Honors in Latin American Studies. Carrie grew up in Tallahassee, Florida, where her dad was a professor at Florida State University. Carrie currently lives in unincorporated Roswell in East Cobb County with her son Henry, and with her husband, Cobb County Juvenile Court Judge, Jeff Hamby.
