    • I do not recommend Frederick Carroll.
    • I hired Frederick 1-3 years ago.
    • Frederick handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    This guy will tell you exactly what you want to hear when you initially sit down with him for the first time. He has to open up a law encyclopedia to answer difficult questions that he doesn't know the answers to. He missed 2 court hearings and has a excuse for everything. He violated several rules of professional conduct while representing me , I sincerely regret ever walking into his office. He was never on my side. His lack of communication and diligence had a detrimental affect on my life. I never imagined my case would turn out like it did . The search was illegal and Fred was too much of a coward to challenge anything . He won't fight for you bottom line .

    • I recommend Frederick Carroll.
    • Frederick handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    I had just been released on bail, and about to flee the country to avoid dealing with the likely outcome of my situation and the prison sentence I was facing. I felt like it was a lost cause, too many charges, the way I was caught left nothing for defense in my opinion, however that's where Mr. Carroll and I are different. Right from the start Mr. Carroll made me feel completely at ease with my situation. Frederick Carroll never once promised me anything unrealistic, and he never told me anything that was not the truth. Carroll was upfront with me, and I trust him with my life. He gave it his all, he gave me the best possible defense and I owe this man decades of my life. Frederick Carroll is an excellent attorney, he is very trustworthy, extremely knowledgeable, and he doesn't hesitate to fight for your freedom tooth and nail. If you're on the fence about who to hire... This is the time to make the most important decision of your life, this is the time to choose Mr. Frederick Carroll.

    • I recommend Frederick Carroll.
    • I hired Frederick more than 3 years ago.
    • Frederick handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Mr. Carroll is an awesome attorney. He helped my nephew when he made a stupid mistake with the law. Due to Mr. Carroll's hard work and committment to my nephew's case he was able to stay in his program that he had just been accepted to and was able move on with his future. Because of Mr. Carroll's dedication, loyalty, professionalism and understanding I have recommended him to other family members who he has helped out in the past as well and will only continue to use Mr. Carroll in the future and only refer him. He is the best attorney I have ever met and had the pleasure to know.

    Mr. Carroll handled my case very professionally. Obviously, I'm out of custody and happy to be, largely because of his work. His knowledge of the law is impressive-he'll quote you the law off the top of his head. He's sometimes hard to reach, but he will call you back in a professional amount of time. He only does criminal law, but he'll refer you to specialists in other areas. He's the reason I'm at home with my family.

    The best lawyer I have ever worked with . Very responsive, trustworthy, full of sage advice. Incredible honest. A real standup guy. I have recommended him to people on many, many occasions. Fred is incredibly sharp from a legal perspective. I highly recommend him. This is the guy you want on your side in court.

    I was set up to do some serious time for a stupid mistake. Someone put me in touch with Fred and it was GREAT! He got me a lot less time than I thought I would get. He always got back to me and answered all of my questions. He even calmed my mom down when she was freaking out! I would reccomend this guy to anyone who is in trouble!

    Lazy, dishonest. Really this lawyer has no business being in law, a disgrace to his profession. Do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.

    I have never heard such a litany of weak excuses as to why he never did his job. He failed to follow through on the most basic of functions that caused more problems than he attempted to solve.

    Do not trust this man,

    good luck.
