Best Attorney!
Brooks is a wonderful attorney and I highly recommend giving him a call if you are in need of a attorney. His assistant Madi stays on top of things and always responds within 30 minutes or so. After my license was revoked due to unpaid fines, I got a few Driving While Licence Revoked charges. Brooks not only helped me get my license back but he was able to have all of the charges dismissed. And to top it all off I was a court-appointed client meaning that because I was unable to hire an attorney on my own at the time, I filled out the required forms about my financial situation and the judge granted my request for a court-appointed lawyer. So I did not have to pay. I was treated no differently than any other client

Excellent Representation!
I received a speeding ticket on Rt. 95 in Johnston County NC which is a 5 hour drive away from my home. I hired Brooks Carter Law PLLC. to represent me on "must appear" charges. Brooks Carter appeared on my behalf and I was extremely pleased with the out come and even more pleased that I did not have to make the 5 hour journey back to NC. Thanks Brooks!

Brooks Carter, Attorney at Law
Mr. Carter is a true gentleman and the consummate professional. He is very knowledgeable, personable, efficient, honest, and straight forward. His cost is very fair and reasonable and he delivers exemplary legal representation. I hope I don't need his services again, however I would certainly call him if needed in the future, and i would recommend him to anyone, especially on traffic charges.

Professional, honest, effective.
I live in Maryland, i was traveling to Myrtle beach with my wife and I had a speeding ticket in Noth Carolina. I thought that I just can pay my ticket online. But I was supposed to appear in court first. I contacted Mr. Carter and he was very professional from the beginning. He was going to represent me in court. He made it very easy for me. His website is very friendly with easy access to make paynents. He always answered to my calls in a timely manner manner, and always ready to answer to all your questions. I'll recommend Mr. Carter to family and friends.

Very Professional, 100% Satisfied
As a college student, I found myself in a bind with a traffic ticket that would have been detrimental to my insurance cost every year. Brooks Carter Law offered me professional legal services at a reasonable cost. I was very pleased with the service he offered to me and would highly recommend his services to anyone dealing in need of legal services.

The Lawyer's Lawyer
Brooks Carter is the lawyer's lawyer! Yes, you read that correct. I'm an experienced trial attorney who recently relocated from another state. When I needed advice I turned to Brooks. He was spot on in his counsel, enthusiast and most of all - likeable! What more could you want when standing before judge or jury?

Issues with landlord
Mr Carter helped me with a landlord/tenant issue via phone consultation. He wasn't obligated to listen to my issues or give me any advise and he did both and he made me feel more at ease about a very stressful situation. Hes not only a good attorney he is a good person. Thank you Brooks!

A true neighbor helping a neighbor!
I want to give a special shout out to a true neighbor helping a neighbor. Mr. Carter reached out to me after I posted on Nextdoor about the need for a Civil litigator. We spoke on the phone and he gave me sound advice without requiring me to come in for a consultation. Basically, he was able to assess my situation, point me in the right direction and told me not to hesitate to reach back out to him if I needed to! Thank you so much Mr. Brooks Carter...FYI, still awaiting a response, lol!
