    I have known Carter for 15 + years. My first contact with his work is when he and I both worked for a large Insurance company. He was hired to as a construction defect expert lawyer, and I was charged with auditing legal files nationwide. As an auditor, I found Carter's legal work to be exemplary . He is organized, a strategic thinker, excellent at his craft and dedicated to client service.

    Carter is extremely bright and conscientious. I've referred friends to him in the past and would confidently do so again.
