Injured Laborer Case
Attorney Carta and his paralegal team have been truly excellent. The Workers Comp process can be long and grueling, particularly when dealing with big, indifferent corporations. I have found Carta to be very patient, hard-working, and tireless in fighting the case. His staff have also been enormously helpful in supporting his work for me: spot-on diligent, professional at all times, and truly hard-working. I tend to have very high standards and expectations of people I hire. I am so pleased with Attorney Carta's long-term help that I have started carrying his business card at work, and have given them to other folks when they needed a hand. I would not do that if i was not both confident in him being able to do a good job helping fellow co-workers, and also satisfied with his help.

Joan from Haddam
Attorney Carta and team handled an involved workmanship compensation case on my behalf. It required months of correspondence between multiple parties. I was kept informed every step of the way and any questions or concerns I had were addressed promptly by either Attorney Carta or his paralegal. Always professional yet very approachable and empathetic to my needs. Results of negotiations were very acceptable to all parties.

Worker's Compensation Case
I hired Scott to work on my worker's compensation case. From the beginning to the end, he was very personable, knowledgeable, and compassionate about my situation. He attended numerous hearings and worked tirelessly on my behalf. Throughout this process, I also communicated frequently with Denise, Scott's paralegal. She collected and organized my documents, so that my case could move forward seamlessly. Both Scott and Denise, communicated with me in a timely manner. I am very satisfied with the results of my case. They are a terrific team, and I would highly recommend them!

I am very pleased with how much Scott has helped me. During the process I felt much at ease and very confident in any and all decisions made. I will definitely recommend him to others. The Paralegal, Lorrie Cohen was a great help also and took time to answer any questions I had.

workers comp case
Hired Atty Carta and could not have been more pleased. Always accessible for any concerns I had and always kept me abreast of any developments in my case. I also referred him to a relative who is equally as pleased.
