Caroline Gobbell Beauchamp

Caroline Beauchamp, Attorney
Because no single approach to divorce is best for everyone, Caroline provides her clients with individually-tailored strategies for addressing their goals, while, in every case, advocating with integrity and respect, in order to minimize the emotional impact of divorce, protect children, and to preserve the wealth of the family.

Caroline’s unique academic background and professional experience enable her to provide clients with creative solutions in cases involving high net worth individuals, family-owned and closely-held businesses, deferred compensation plans, intellectual property and real estate holdings. Among other professionals, Caroline has represented numerous business owners, insiders and affiliates of publicly traded companies, songwriters, performers, and individuals for whom public interest in the divorce case is high.

While in law school at Vanderbilt University, Caroline earned a certificate in Law and Business along with her Doctorate of Jurisprudence. Caroline practiced in the areas of business, entertainment and insurance law from 2004 to 2008. She co-founded family law firm, McCarter & Beauchamp, PLLC, in 2008, applying her business acumen to family law cases. In 2024, McCarter & Beauchamp, PLLC, merged with Lindsey Amonette + Glassford, PLLC, to form Lindsey Amonette McCarter Beauchamp + Glassford, PLLC.

Caroline was among the first attorneys in Middle Tennessee to embrace the collaborative process as a desirable method for resolving many family law disputes. She is a founding member and former President of the Middle Tennessee Collaborative Alliance, now Collaborative Divorce Nashville. Caroline has successfully resolved numerous family law disputes through the collaborative process. In addition to representing individuals in litigated and collaborative family law cases, Caroline offers her services to families as a Rule 31 listed Family Law Mediator.
