Superior Knowledge. Superior Results. Superior Client Service. Call Today for a Free Consultation.
For over a decade I have been helping good people get through bad sitiluations, be it a frightening criminal charge, a contentious family court case, or fighting for fair compensation in a personal injury matter. Along the way I have established a reputation in the legal community as an honest, effective and fair advocate for my clients.
My knowledge, experience and track record in DWI and Criminal Defense has resulted in multiple invitations to lecture and instruct other practicing attorneys in the art and science of DWI and Criminal Defense.
As the owner of Carpenter Law, it is my ultimate goal to provide all of my clients with the best possible representation and customer service. I am always happy to answer any questions you may have, and in most instances I provide a free consultation.
