    • I recommend Carter Sears.
    • I hired Carter 1-3 years ago.
    • Carter handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    I used Mr. Sears for a difficult divorce. He was extremely prepared and thorough in not only advising me as to the best way to get my divorced settled but also gave great consideration to the lasting impacts that how we settled would impact our son.
    He recommended a wonderful marriage mediator (at expense to his fees) to help us get settled.
    He also can be very aggressive if dealing with lawyers who push way behind the limits of decency and fairness when dealing with marital settlements.

    I would recommend Carter to anyone looking for the best experience with an attorney. His knowledge of the law, thorough work, prompt response, and overall professionalism exceeded my expectations. He was able to translate 'law terms' into more understandable terms. He is very trustworthy and made me feel comfortable. His passion for his work truly shines through. It seemed as though he made the impossible, possible. Again, my overall experience with Carter was great.

    Carter is a great lawyer. He is very dedicated to his work and takes any challenge. He is amazing in the court room and does not take no for an answer. He is there every step of the way and is very supportive. I would definitely recommend him and any client would be 100% satisfy with his work. I have worked with other lawyers in the past and I can't compare any of them with the work that Carter does. If I ever need a lawyer again I would not call anybody else but him.

    Carter was thorough, incisively intelligent, and overall, compassionate for what I was going through.

    In the courtroom, he doesn't just take no for an answer. He is pretty amazing to watch, and is a master at cross-examination.

    He made a very difficult situation much, much easier for me. I would go to him first for any legal problem.
