    • I recommend Carl Ceder.

    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.

      Lawyer Comment:

      I am very humbled by this review, and appreciate the kind words. Of all the cases I have tried and have been fortunate enough to have received successful results, I am perhaps the most proud of this one. The jury received a legal argument in the jury charge, and I believed they followed the law. This how the justice system is supposed to work. I am also very appreciative of the Judge of the court where this case is tried - who is among the very best in the entire DFW Metroplex. She is fair, impartial, and makes sure that every individual in her court receives a fair trial. As well, on numerous occasions, I have seen her treat every attorney in her courtroom with the utmost respect. I am very happy that this particular individual who wrote this review was able to receive this outcome. It pleases me very much when I am able to help someone through what I know is a difficult time in their life. It is my goal to always continue to do this well into the future.

    • I recommend Carl Ceder.

    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 recommend Carl Ceder.

    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.

    • I recommend Carl Ceder.

    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.

    • I recommend Carl Ceder.

    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.

    • I recommend Carl Ceder.
    • I hired Carl 1-3 years ago.
    • Carl handled my DUI / DWI matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Carl Ceder is a stand up guy. He is a great attorney who stays the course and does what is right, even if the going is a bit tough. He got me out of an unfair arrest and cleared my record. It makes a huge difference in the direction my life can go now. I highly recommend this firm. They are true professionals and do whatever it takes to find the truth!

    • I recommend Carl Ceder.
    • I hired Carl 1-3 years ago.
    • Carl handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I hired Mr. Ceder a little over a year ago to represent me on a felony theft case. He guided me through the entire legal process with relative ease. He and his entire staff took my case very seriously and gave it the upmost priority. It's not all about the money with him , he has a genuine concern for his clients. I slept good at night with him representing me. And for good reason !! Because when it was all said and done he was able to get my entire case dismissed !!! If you ever find yourself in trouble and facing charges it would be a good decision to consult with this man. You will be in the best legal hands you can find.

    • I recommend Carl Ceder.
    • I hired Carl 6-12 months ago.
    • Carl handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I hired Carl to pull a rabbit out his hat and save my drivers license from two years of suspension and countless surcharges. Never even talking to him, we chose him from the huge list of lawyers that we had contacted only because his assistant knew more than most of the lawyers. Carl, or anyone in his office, don't say a whole lot...it can be a little disconcerting at first. As time went on, I realized they were on top of everything and were all about results -- and in the end, my probable two year suspension in Carl's hands went to three months probated suspension. This legal team delivers...dependable, organized, knowledgeable. Nobody ever wants to have to hire a lawyer...but if you do, this is the one to call now.
