Very Supportive and Understanding
Mr. Carter was excellent from the first phone call of inquiry to the very last email. I recommend him for all of your Bankruptcy needs. He was willing to explain the process in detail. He answered all my questions in a timely manner. Every inquiry was responded to within a 24hr period. The process was very smooth and he was there all the way. I was never treated like a number but more like a cherished client. Mr. Carter is a man of great talent, patience and understanding. He will take care of you better than most lawyers in Baltimore City. I interviewed alot of them before I selected Mr. Carter. They all wanted money and didn't have much time, but Mr. Carter wanted to help me and he understood where I was in my life. You will not be disappointed I promise you that.

The Best Attorney Ever!!!
Shawn Carter assisted me with filing Bankruptcy. This was a very scary, difficult, and emotional time for me. Shawn was very patient, professional and knowledgeable. He educated me on my rights and options. Shawn made me feel as if I was his only client. He answered every call, even if he was in court, to answer my question, and would assure me a call back to follow up. Shawn Carter is the BEST!! He is also very personable. Not only is he my Attorney, he is now also a friend. He will call just to see how me and my family are doing. It gets no better than that. I recommend Shawn to all that I may come in contact with who may benefit from his stellar 5 star services.
