I recently had to deal with a DWI/reckless speeding violation. Something that I thought I would never have to deal with. When this situation happened, I felt embarrassed & horrible. A friend of mine whose husband is an attorney recommended that I contact Mr. Carter. I'm glad I did. He walked me through the process & made me feel less ashamed of what happened. He is very knowledgeable of the laws regarding DWI. When it came time for my hearing, Mr. Carter used his knowledge to get my DWI reduced & my reckless speeding charge dismissed. He helped to reach the best possible outcome regarding my situation. Even after the hearing, he walked me through the next steps of what I needed to complete. I was very happy with the outcome, because I got no jail time for this unfortunate situation. I highly recommend Mr. Carter.
I recently had to go to Traffic Court for the first time, and Mr. Carter made the whole experience a lot less stressful. He is definitely very knowledgeable about Virginia Traffic laws and explained to me how everything would work beforehand. My court date was so much easier than expected, and he ended up getting both charges cleared for me. He is a great lawyer to work with, and I am so thankful that I hired him.
Mr. Carter recently represented our family member in DUI proceedings in Fairfax County. He was very thorough in his preparation for the hearings and kept us informed at all times. He was able to negotiate the best possible outcome!
GREAT lawyer and GREAT results!!! I received a ticket for speeding and was facing 3 points added to my perfectly clean record. Mr. Carter talked me through the process, sent me an email confirming our meet up time and location, was early to meet me, walked me to the courthouse and explained everything that would likely happen. I felt comfortable all the way through. Mr. Carter has a reputation with the prosecutors and is known to be professional and competent. Because Mr. Carter approached and spoke with the prosecuting attorney before the hearing I was able to have my ticket reduced to a NO-POINT violation!!!!! His fees are fair, he is friendly and approachable, and his lawyering is EXCELLENT!!!
Mr. Carter recently represented me in a DWI case, and the recommendation to attain his services from a friend of mine in the legal industry prompted me to do so. Hiring him was the best decision I could have made during my case.
He was direct, honest, and exceptionally helpful and supportive throughout the entire legal process and hearings. He was up front about the situation, provided the most likely scenarios for the outcome of the case, and walked me through each phase of the process. Mr. Carter is also unique in his willingness to host an infinite amount of questions without making one feel that they are being a bother. He maintained regular contact with me, and was always readily available for what I would consider more than reasonable windows of time to speak with me both during and off business hours to put my mind at ease about what to expect.
Mr. Carter demonstrates a wonderful touch of personal support to his clients that I more than appreciated, and truly needed. I would not have gotten through my ordeal without not only his legal counsel, but his truly supportive nature. He makes his clients feel as if they have a true friend in their corner. I give him my 100% recommendation, and highly suggest that others that are in need of legal representation, or are in a similar predicament to the one I was in, to contact him as soon there may become a need to do so. One will most certainly not regret to decision to have reached out to him.
Tom Carter recently represented me in a criminal defense matter and, in short, I was thoroughly impressed with his professionalism, substantive knowledge, and grasp of local practices. Further, out of all the attorneys I consulted with, he stood out as genuinely empathetic and passionate about my case--precisely what you want when seeking representation in a legal matter. My case ended up going to trial, and he did an outstanding job; he was poised and well-spoken throughout the trial and ultimately secured a successful ruling. Despite the charges pending against me, knowing I had Tom Carter as my attorney enabled me to carry on my daily routine reassured I had the best legal representation in Alexandria.
