Excellent Legal Investigation Work
He never quit. He keeps going until the legal investigatory work is done and done really well. I bet he does exceptional immigration work as well.

Outstanding lawyer and person
Edward was fantastic in regards to the case I hired him for. An accusation/charge was made against me that was entirely false- and it truly was a frighting experience. Edward represented me in the fall of 2019. I was very impressed from the start, as Edward's past experience in law enforcement was obvious as he grasped the situation of my case and determined strategy in a quick and efficient manner. Edward stated from the beginning that we should take the case all the way to jury if needed-given the charges against me and his understanding of the situation. We first were offered a plea deal-and at his recommendation we declined it .His intuition and legal insight were exact and the case was dismissed entirely. An outstanding outcome-and a great person to work with as well.

Good guy
Attorney Carrasco is a good man who helped me out even though he could have charged a lot. Basically if you don’t need a lawyer and it’s a simple fix he’ll be happy to help and show you the way

"I endorse Edward Carrasco. Edward's more than two decades spent with the NYPD, dealing with the District Attorney's offices and handling legal issues for the public at large have certainly given him a view of the law from many sides. That knowledge is a great asset to clients when Edward steps into a court room."
