Carina Lyn Roselli, Esq. is a third-generation horsewoman, born and raised on farms throughout New England. She is devout to her northern roots, but during her last military posting in Arlington, the wine and horses of Northern Virginia won her and husband over, so they’re here to stay.
Carina gave 17 years to the US Army, first as a helicopter pilot and then as an attorney helping the service branches develop their new Special Victims’ Counsel to advocate for victims of military sexual assault. Carina medically retired at the end of 2019, making her a disabled veteran.
In between Army tours, Carina earned her law degree from Vermont Law School and a master’s degree from Yale University’s School of the Environment. She then practiced international human rights law helping the United Nations, US State Department, and the Environmental Law Institute develop international law to prevent environmental impacts of war (specializing in Iraq).
Carina’s health eventually benched her from overworking in austere places, so in March 2021, she opened her solo law firm, CLR Law, PLLC. She now offers concierge Life, Legacy & Estate Planning and Equine Legal & Business Services to clients throughout Hunt Country, Virginia.
Carina lives in Purcellville with her devoted husband, Frank, three wonderful stepchildren, Madison, Owen, and Kaden, and the best little dog in the world, “Cue” (as in Res-Cue). And, if you’re ever looking for her, she’s probably in Leesburg doting on her Belgian x Haflinger horse, “King Cornbread.”
“As an equestrian and disabled veteran, I’m thrilled to help Bridle Paths continue to develop its military equine therapy programs, and as a new Member of the Board, I’m very excited to be a part of Bridle Paths’ bright future.”
