Sometimes in life, we tend to take for granted the simple things.
So, when I was arrested for a misdemeanor, I had no idea what to do.
I reached out to family and friends. Then, I researched online.
Carl Ceder was not only referred to me but his reviews were by far, some of the best I had seen.
Carl took my case. He explained each and every step that I was about to take, before I took it. He told me what the possible outcomes could be, not hesitating to hid the possibility of jail time.
No one wants to ever hear those words but, when you do, Carl Ceder is the one you want defending you!
Not only was Carl able to reset my case without the necessity of me losing time at work, every month, he was able to work out a deal no one saw coming.
Dropped to a Class C and 36 hours of community service.
In the end, a poor decision on my part that led to a arrest was turned around by Carl Ceder.
Carl was my attorney for a DWI I received charges for in Plano Texas. I was petrified and had no idea what was next after spending the night in jail my sister who was hysterical reached out to Carl in the early morning hours of the night and was consoled and walked through step by step of what was going to happen. After being released from jail I some careful thinking about what attorney I was going to go with knowing my fate was on the line and I chose Carl Cedar. And was blessed that I did because the DWI charge was acquitted. Throughout the process Carl and his investigative team helped me comforted me and were completely honest all the way down to the fees. Im so thankful for a great team pf people. Especially them knowing i am from another city they did not lapse in filling me in on everything regarding my case. His style of argument during trial was brilliant and he does not back down a bit he made me feel as if he was fighting for his OWN innocence. Because of him I can play with my newborn son and be there for all of his new milestones. THANKS Carl!
I cannot begin to express how thankful I am to have found Carl and his team 2 years ago after being charged with a DWI. My life as I knew it had been turned upside down and I felt so helpless, hopeless and ashamed of the mistake I had made. Carl and his team gave me hope and encouragement every single step of the way. They worked out an affordable payment plan for me and never once made me feel bad about my situation. When it was all said and done, I received the minimum penalty, which is absolutely amazing considering the circumstances surrounding my case. Not a day has gone by that I have not been thankful for Carl and his team, and I would recommend them to anyone in need of an experienced, knowledgeable and most of all caring attorney.
Nearly 2 years ago I was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Due to my work background having something like this on my record could be detrimental to my career and future job growth. Because of this, I wanted the best representation I could get and that brought me to Carl.
Carl and his staff were right there with me through the entire process of navigating the inefficient and frustrating Dallas legal system. When my trial finally came, Carl was up to a daunting task against the DA: 3 expert witnesses, 2 logged breath tests of double the legal limit, and video evidence of 3 separate supposed sobriety test failures. Despite this, Carl stuck to his guns. He emphasized the lack of probable cause to initiate a stop among other things and was able to convince a jury to come back with a not guilty verdict.
Carl helped to preserve my good name and, despite what was clearly a David vs. Goliath scenario, stayed positive and in the end got the verdict that we needed.
So to anybody out there reading these reviews in a panic, trying to figure out who on earth you are going to call to help you navigate this trying time in your life, I was right where you were 2 years ago. Take a breath, relax, and give Carl a call. It is the best possible decision you could make.
My husband found Carl Ceder the day I was arrested. Carl and Dennis were extremely helpful!!! First, they were able to calm my husband down, give him directive on what to do next, and assured him that everything was going to be okay (they even met him at the jail at 2am). From the very first day, Carl was supportive and competent. No one ever wants to face legal issues, however, if you are reading this, either you or someone close to you is in need of great legal council - Carl Ceder is just that. His assistant Sandy is above and beyond greatness - she is passionate about what she does and is always available to answer any questions you might have and give you a word of encouragement. Throughout the entire legal process, I knew I had a team of support on the front line; an attorney that is highly respected and knowledgeable, support at the office and someone to sit with while I was waiting to go to court (thanks Dennis). Carl Ceder is an awesome attorney, man of his word, and the one you want representing you as you face life changing legal challenges.
I am writing this with immense pleasure and happiness: “Carl did it for me when I had lost all the hopes on my case”. Yes, I was another DWI victim like most of you reading this review right now. Although my blood alcohol content has shown less than 0.08, the cop arrested me and I had to go through all the pain. DWI is a big thing for anyone and one would never want it on their records. During my trial everything Carl did and said was great. I had no complaints at all. The jury came back and declared that I was not guilty, that was a great and correct decision. I can only tell you after going through this procedure that you have to have an extremely knowledgeable and professional attorney by your side. When you talk of these things, I cannot think of anyone but Carl to do this job for me.
In short, Our experience with Carl Ceder and his team was outstanding. Trust him to give yourself a best chance to win your case.
We were very fortunate to have retained Carl Cedar as my son's lawyer. Because of Carl's abilities and knowledge, a "not guilty" verdict was rendered. Carl makes his client feel that he is the only client. He kept us informed and either he or his staff was always available to answer questions.
Great person to care of my case with no hassle.
Awesome outcome of my case YES I would defenetly recommend him.
Mr.Cedar was my court appointed attorney but he took care of my case as If I was a regular customer.
I have used Carl Ceder before for on DUI case in which I knew I would have to plea and I got a really good deal. Then had another case a little over year later with a possible 2nd DUI charge. I honestly thought I didn't have much of a chance to win the case, but I believed in Carl Ceded. During trial everything Carl Ceded did and said was great. I had no complaints at all. The jury came back with a not guilty charge. Carl Ceder represented me to the fullest extent. I have and will always recommend Carl Ceder to anyone who needs the best representation.
