Biography

Cari Rincker is licensed to practice in Illinois, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Washington D.C. She is a general practitioner with concentrations in food, farm and family law. She is also mediator, prolific writer, and articulate speaker.

Cari is a nationally recognized food, farm and family attorney. She is currently an adjunct professor at Vermont Law School teaching an online agriculture and environmental law course and is a past adjunct professor at New York University, Department of Nutrition and Food Studies teaching an undergraduate food law course. Before starting Rincker Law, PLLC, Cari was an associate at Budd-Falen Law Offices, LLC in Cheyenne, Wyoming where her broad practice areas ranged from agriculture, environmental and natural resource issues to federal lands, wind energy development, crop insurance, property law, commercial law, and probate with clients located all over the west.

Cari has developed a strong love for her skillful work as a family and matrimonial attorney. She is a trained mediator for divorces and child custody and visitation disputes. Cari is passionate about alternative dispute resolution with family and matrimonial cases, especially when children are involved, and aims to build stronger families–not tear them apart. Cari does a significant amount of work in Family Court litigating child custody and visitation, child/spousal support, and family offense petitions/orders of protection. She too handles both contested and uncontested divorces. Cari is a careful draftsman of pre – and post – nuptial agreements.

Cari is a member of the matrimonial law committee for the Association of the Bar for the City of New York and the family law section for the New York State Bar Association. She is also a volunteer mediator with the New York Peace Institute in Manhattan and Brooklyn. In Illinois, Cari followed her passion to her home state to help families mend from divorce and separation and was recently appointed to the roster of family law mediators for the Sixth Circuit.

Cari’s passion for agriculture issues is deeply rooted. She grew up on a seedstock Simmental cattle operation in Shelbyville, Illinois where she spent significant time working on her family’s farm. She showed cattle through 4-H and FFA at both the local and national levels and was involved with the American Junior Simmental Association.

Cari went on to attend Lake Land College in Mattoon, Illinois where she received her Associate’s in Agriculture Science and had a successful career on its livestock judging team including being selected as First Place in Oral Reasons at the National Western Livestock Show and First Place Overall at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Cari then transferred to Texas A & M University where she received her Bachelor’s of Science in Animal Science and was a member of both the Livestock and Meat Animal Evaluation (“Askarben”) judging teams. She was selected as a member of the All-American Livestock Judging Team and was actively involved with the Saddle & Sirloin Club and Texas Aggie Cattlewomen. At Texas A & M University, Cari was selected to participate in the Congressional Agriculture and Natural Resource Policy Internship Program through the College of Agriculture. It is here that Cari received her first glimpse into agriculture law and policy during her summer working for Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX).

      Friendly, professional, clear, coherent, concise. She made requirements clear at each step, shared how to avoid unnecessary expense etc. On the whole, made a challenging scenario as easy as it could be. My ex & I both immediately felt comfortable with her mediating (which you will save a bundle going this way). On court day, when compared to the other lawyers handling cases that day, Cari had her stuff together, and clearly works in the top tier of family law, she is highly recommended. Read less
