If you are reading my review you probably need a GREAT Attorney- STOP searching and call Clifton! I found Clifton Carden after receiving a speeding ticket in Salina, NY. Being from CT I was concerned NY State shared driving history, points and so on. I called his office- spoke to Clifton directly and he gave me a variety of options and his opinion on how to best handle this situation. I thought hiring an attorney was going to be overly expensive and being out of state - the end result could be more than if I paid the ticket or pleaded not guilty and did this on my own. If you have a situation- call Attorney Clifton Carden for his advise and then hire him. He did everything he said he would do- kept me in the loop and ultimately settled my situation without points saved me at least $1,000 in fines and surcharges from my insurance company- Hire Clifton- he is professional, honest and works hard for you. I can now say...."Call My Attorney" he will work it out for you!

I live in Vt but was arrested in upstate NY for a DUI, my first. I was discharged from the military after catching some shrapnel from an RPG. I called all of the big DUI advertisers and realized they would assign me one of their new, inexperienced, lawyers. THen, if they even called back, they led me to believe they were only going to facilitate the court paperwork and not press for a better outcome. I happened across Mr. Carden's number and after speaking with him I knew he was my Lawyer. He assured me I could would work out the finances with him. Mr Carden made many trips to court, let me know what I could do, put up with all my nervous questions, and got various hearings to work for us and not the prosecution. I met his partner, Mr Dotzler, as we finally were going to trial. The two of them had done so much prepping that I was amazed. I could tell, the two partners compliment each other exceptionally well. But a better offer was produced that I felt was to good to pass up. The prosecutor and police officers looked even more relieved than I was! Mr Carden never seemed worried about making court friends or pissing anyone off if it meant getting me a better result. He is a fighter when need be and a very confident trial attorney when called upon.

Mr Carden is highly recommended by myself and my family! He went above and beyond for us! When i first sent a voicemail, he was on his family vacation and got back to me within the first half hour that I called. He answered every phone call and text with no waiting time. Mr. Carden was very informative and made it a point to explain all the options that we had and also all off the possible scenarios that could play out within our case. I am completely satisfied and thankful for all that he has done for us. Our situation was very time sensitive and he made it a point to fit us in and get done what needed to be done. We are greatly appreciate all of the time and effort he out in making all of the necessary arrangements to help us and out and set our minds at ease! Please don't consider anyone else for the job, he is the one that is gonna be the best, hands down!

I endorse this lawyer. What sets Cliff apart from other attorneys is that he has attention to detain and seemingly really cares for his client's overall welfare. Cliff has earned my respect and the respect of the legal community.

Cliff is an intelligent, energetic, experienced and knowledgeable attorney. Having someone on your side who has been a prosecutor is an invaluable benefit. I was searching for someone for a particularly difficult referral and Judge I know recommended Mr. Carden (not in his Court!). There is no substitute for Expertise and knowledge of the Court and Offense.
