    • I recommend William Carswell.
    • I hired William 1-3 years ago.
    • William handled my Family matter.

    I called Mr. Carswell for a custody battle. He cared about my case and my child more than I ever imagined possible. He always returned my calls quickly, which is more than my last lawyer did. I will use him again, if we have another issue.

    • William handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was very pleased with how Mr Carswell was able to quickly get my case resolved. He seemed to care about my case and followed up on several loose ends afterwards.

    • I recommend William Carswell.
    • I hired William 1-3 years ago.
    • William handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Did a superb job on a family member's case, carefully resolving a serious domestic matter which, quite frankly, my relative brought on himself. I was also a client in a different case and am pleased and impressed with attorney's skill.

    • I do not recommend William Carswell.
    • I hired William more than 3 years ago.
    • William handled my Child Support matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Carswell completely dropped the ball during my child support case by failing to file vital discovery requests by the deadline even after numerous written & verbal reminders by me. William seemed immature and not to have a good grasp of simple court procedures and filing procedures...his inadequacies ultimately cost me a fortune in that I had to hire another attorney to clean up his mess!

    • William handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    My child's father harrassed me for two years. Throughout this time, Mr. Carswell represented me and defended a series of harrassing cases brought by my deadbeat ex. In this same time my ex went through four attorneys. Finally, when my ex was sent to prison, Mr. Carswell handled the stepparent adoption and had my ex's parental rights terminated. I am extremely happy with my representation.

    • William handled my Appeals matter.

    Very happy with my representation. Attorney met me on a Saturday because of my work schedule. Difficult case settled on appeal as Mr. Carswell got my prior bad verdict fixed. Should have retained him to begin with.

    Took my case and fixed the mess my prior attorney made. Basically saved my life when other attorneys told me my case was a loser. I definitely got good representation and am glad I hired Mr. Carswell.
