Carolyn, a York County native, brings a breadth of knowledge and experience to Bellomo & Associates. Most recently, Carolyn was a shareholder in Pugh & Cutaia, PLLC. She has been in private practice since serving as the first judicial law clerk for the Honorable Joseph C. Adams in the York County Court of Common Pleas.
While in private practice, Carolyn has zealously and caringly represented clients in diverse areas of law, advocating and guiding them through the complex legal system. She is experienced in family law, criminal defense, estate law, Social Security disability, bankruptcy, juvenile/school law, municipal law and animal law. Her love of animals is further highlighted in the fact that she obtained her undergraduate degree in animal science from the Pennsylvania State University before she pursued her law degree at Dickinson School of Law.
In addition to her legal acumen, Carolyn brings hands-on people skills to her new role. Most recently, Carolyn was a Custody Conciliator and Court appointed Mediator for the county of York. In these roles, she used her negotiation skills and knowledge of family law to help the litigants reach consensus if possible.
Carolyn cares deeply about the York County community and has been on the board of the Horn Farm Agricultural Education Center and the York County Parks Auxiliary Board. She coordinated the York County High School Mock Trial Competition for several years. She is currently a member of the York County Bar Association and serves as the Editor of the York Legal Record.
Carolyn is very close to her large family – her parents, four brothers, three sisters-in-law, four nieces and four nephews. She enjoys family gatherings and spending time with her menagerie of pets (her dog, Kip, her horse, Liam, and her three cats, Smoochie, Gus and Bean). She loves to travel and spends several weeks a year at her family’s cabin on Moosehead Lake in Maine and motorcycle trips with her boyfriend, Aaron.
Carolyn is a bibliophile who has been known to voraciously read several books a week.
