Shireen L. Carter Attorney at Law
8555 Harbach Blvd, Suite 202
Clive, Iowa 50325
My name is Shireen Carter. I am an attorney and mediator in the Des Moines area with my office located in Clive. The emphasis of my practice is on family law and juvenile law. My focus is to provide caring, compassionate, client-centered representation to each of my clients. I grew up in the Des Moines area and graduated from Simpson College with a BA in psychology and a minor in social work. I lived in the Las Vegas area for eleven years before returning to the Des Moines area to fulfill a lifelong goal of attending law school. During law school, I was active in the Middleton Children’s Rights Clinic at Drake, where I represented children and parents in Children in Need of Assistance, delinquency, guardianship, adoption, and emancipation cases.
I was divorced before I was ever an attorney. My experience as a client sitting “on the other side of the desk” affords me a great empathy for my clients as they embark on a significant life-changing path. A collaborative divorce provides an alternative process to end a marriage that doesn’t necessitate destroying a family and that possibility is why I choose to do this work.
