    • I recommend Carmen Roe.

    Before Carmen, I went to a family law attorney with the hope to get my case dismissed right away since the false report made by my EX was related to the child custody case with which the same attorney helped me won. I soon realized he was not only lack of knowledge in criminal law filed but also lazy. He put no effort and encouraged I took the plea with no contest offer. I was embarrassed and intimidated when this happened until I found Carmen. She helped to get the case back to a place where it could be resolved favorably in no time. My case was dismissed this Tuesday.

    I'm impressed with Carmen's professionalism and the way she handle things to get the job done: She listened to everything I had to say and made sure that my side of the story was heard; she is always available via email and returns my calls promptly; she is very persistent and knowledgeable, clearly knows what she is doing.

    I would recommend attorney Carmen Roe to anyone who needs legal service.

    • I recommend Carmen Roe.

    We all make mistakes and for those of us who have never been in trouble with the law in your life, don't know where to turn for help.Under unfortunate circumstances, I was charged with theft.

    I am an immigrant,student. it was very important for me to come out of it with out any remark & not jeopardize my education & immigration,,future employment opportunities. Luckily I found Carmen on avvo.com and after reading the stellar reviews, I scheduled a complimentary/free consultation.

    I sat down with her & explained everything.she listened patiently, asked questions without any judgement and told me what the probable outcome would be.she explained all the options possible.

    I'm not one to go into full detail about my actual case but lets put it this way, MONEY WELL SPENT.

    Carmen is a very competent, well connected, efficient & A high quality first class lawyer.She is a very respected woman in her field.

    The big thing I noticed about her is..,she actually loves her job, very energetic & dedicated to what she does.

    She is straight forward, honest & a down to earth lady.She is the lawyer who will fight for you and get you the absolute best results possible.She also gave me the best advice regarding my career options,travel options; counseled me during my periods of low.she is always very prompt in replying emails & returning calls.She understood my financial situation & charged reasonably.


    Go with one of the best, well connected ones out there to ensure the best result possible,because so often "you get what you pay for". And that is what happened.

    I highly recommend Carmen Roe.I am so glad I found her.she has been a lifesaver.Thank you so much Carmen.

    This was my first offense and I hired Carmen through a recommendation and I am very glad I did. Carmen was very helpful and sincere when it came to my case. She listened to everything I had to say and then gave me a breakdown of the situation that I could easily understand. She is very easy to reach and you can always expect a reply back from her as well. She clearly knows what she is doing and is very knowledgeable. She is very hardworking and is persistent! Expect great results with Carmen!

    I use the term "tenacious" to describe Carmen M. Roe, personally and professionally. While it may seem your defense attorney's personal characteristics have no bearing on the case, nothing could be further from the truth! Unfortunately, this was not my first time in legal trouble. Though I had never served jail time before, the courts had decided it was time to change that! I knew I needed an EXCEPTIONAL defense attorney- if only to get the least amount of jail time possible. After researching, talking to several attorney's- who thought getting the "least" was a great idea- I talked to Carmen on the phone. We met in her office the next day and not only did my outlook on my case change, my outlook on my situation as a whole changed. She listened, she understood, she passed no judgement and she saw OPTIONS... because she took the time to go below the surface. Is this a "requirement" of defense attorney's, obviously not. Does it benefit YOU when you're the defendant, ABSOLUTELY! She promised me NOTHING, other than to tenaciously defend my case, while keeping in mind the impact of the sentencing on my future... No tricks, no lies, just legal acumen and a great rapport within the courts/DA office. I received NO jail time, a VERY short diversion program (that I'd never been told about and certainly not offered) and most importantly- my life back. I am not trying to make her sound like "Saint" Carmen, but I told her at our first meeting (where I was so embarrassed I could barely look at her the first 5 minutes) I appreciated the personal touch she brings to her work ethic and potential clients should know as well. She goes above and beyond and she thinks outside and all around the box and when she says she thinks you've got the best offer going... YOU CAN BELIEVE HER.

    • I recommend Carmen Roe.
    • I hired Carmen 1-3 years ago.
    • Carmen handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I am a first time offender. I have never been in any serious trouble and I was not only embarrassed but also very intimidated when this occurred, especially because I felt I had done nothing wrong. I did a lot of research to find a lawyer and after seriously considering a couple, I had a gut feeling I could find someone better that really cared. Then I found Carmen Roe on this website! When I spoke to Carmen and told her the whole situation, she listened attentively. She scheduled to meet with me right away. When we met she gathered all of the details I had prepared. She valued the time and effort I had put into getting my side of the story to her. She was very sympathetic about the situation. Rather than settling for the diversion program, she knew I had a chance and she fought for me. She made sure my side of the story was heard, and hounded the DA non-stop no matter how much he tried to put my case on the back burner. After a couple of months, my case was dismissed. I am so thankful and do not regret holding off to find the right lawyer for my case. Carmen was amazing and I can tell she really enjoys her job. I am so happy to have found her and had her defend me.

    In terms of the nitty gritty details: Carmen is competitively priced. She is always available via email and returns calls promptly. If she says she is going to call or email you, she keeps her word. She is honest and always tells you what's going on in the case. (Even if I live outside of Houston, I never felt out of touch with the case.) She keeps her cool and she does not back down.

    Thank you Carmen for your patience and for your excellent service.

    Side story: Before finding Carmen, I was going to go with an attorney who only considered the Diversion Program no matter how much I thought I had a fighting chance to get my case dismissed right away. It seemed like what I said went in one ear and out the other. I soon realized he was just plain lazy. I am very happy I did not settle, and found a lawyer that believed in me.

    I highly recommend Carmen. She helped me out beyond my expectations. I hired her for an expunction case and out of all the layers I consulted to do this job she was the only one who promised me to do it in the time frame I was requesting, but not only that; she did everything on her hands to meet this deadline.
    I'm very impressed with Carme's professionalism and the way she handle things to help me and get the job done on time. Aside of being a terrific lawyer, Carmen was also very friendly and honest with me all the time, and very approachable and willing to answer any questions I had at any time.
    Excellent job Carmen!

    • I recommend Carmen Roe.
    • Carmen handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I hired Carmen to represent me for two cases and she was able to get me a good result in both with minimal extra costs (court fees, probation, etc.), including a dismissal of the charges. As my attorney I felt that Carmen always had my best interest in mind and was determined to get me the best result possible. I found her very trustworthy and comfortable to be around. She regularly kept me up to date with my cases and promptly returned my calls and emails. I was very impressed by Carmen’s legal prowess during my pre-trial hearing where she picked apart the arresting officer’s actions and credibility as well as and the DA’s argument. I would highly recommend Carmen Roe for anyone who needs an attorney that will fight for them and go the extra mile.
