Great lawyer and person
I have worked with Carter on various issues for more than 20 years. I have found him to be most helpful and efficient in his counsel. His work for me included corporate, tax, and real estate issues. He is great to work with and I have and would highly recommend him to others.

Effective and practical business oriented lawyer
Carter has been our general business attorney for nearly 20 years. He focus on the business issues, making sure we have framed it properly before creating the contract or agreement. This improves the understanding of "the deal" and quality of business relationships and better written contracts/agreements. Carter is the most trusted legal advisory and is ultimately pragmatic.

Serving our Company's Needs with Informed Character
Carter Bacon is an extremely conscientious person who has a wide breadth of knowledge in contract law. His advice has been spot on and very accurate in guiding our company through our legal challenges. As we've needed to craft multi-faceted agreements over more than a fifteen year period he has listened and advised before writing our contracts. As needs arise, Carter has always made himself available for a consult, in a timely fashion. His instincts have been great and when a need arises, he's right there. I can't imagine a better lawyer to represent our company.
