Carlo Faccini is an attorney at SeilerSchindel in Minneapolis where he practices exclusively family law. Carlo is an AFCC member and chair of the AFCC-MN’s Legislative Committee where he has been organizing this year’s free (for members) conference on November 15, 2019 to teach legislative advocacy skills to AFCC members. Since beginning his involvement with the AFCC, Carlo has presented on the impact of social media on family law at the AFCC 13th Symposium on Child Custody in Denver, Colorado in 2018. This year he has presented locally on this topic in both Hennepin and Ramsey Counties with other AFCC-MN members. In addition to his work on behalf of the AFCC, Carlo is a newly appointed member of the CASA MN Board of Directors, where he works to raise awareness of that organization’s mission and the support of volunteer Guardians ad Litem.
Carlo is a graduate from Creighton Law School and promotes a liberal application of the Jesuit philosophy of Cura Personalis, which he describes as meaning “care of the whole person”. He applies this philosophy in family law cases by focusing on protecting clients from “added pain and hostility” and to mitigate his clients stress and burden.
Carlo is a devoted family man and recently took a break from working on the November Conference to run in the Twin Cities Marathon, which was his fourth marathon, and the first one where he was able to find former Justice Alan Page on the sidelines. The AFCC would like to recognize Carlo for his excellent work on behalf of the organization.
