Highly Recommend
Mrs. Kendrick was recommended to me by multiple professional friends in the Monroe area. Glad I hired her to help me through a difficult situation. Mrs. Kendrick is professional, knowledgeable and accessible. Plus, it’s obvious she is highly respected by other local attorneys. Mrs. Kendrick has represented me for the past 2 years and will continue to represent me for many more years.

I was facing life in prison, and now I'm free!
I was charged with: murder, twelve counts of trafficking ecstasy, four counts of trafficking opium/heroin, and possession of a firearm in 2012. I had a number of lawyers I pad who didn't help me and told me I would never be free from prison again, and Carol got me out. She was very patient, knowledgeable, and honest. She believed in me when nobody else would. She fought for me the way a lawyer is supposed to fight for their client. My parents and I had no knowledge of the law, and she walked us through everything very patiently, and helped us understand how it all works. Her price was competitive, and she did a better job than all my other lawyers combined. If you are facing any legal problem in North Carolina you need to get Carol. There is no amount of money worth your freedom.

CASE DISMISSED BEFORE COURT FIRST DATE
Ms. Carol Huffman was one of the best & top attorneys in Monroe & Charlotte, NC area carrying Mr. Huffman client-centered representation since 1961. She took simple assault case so professionally which had lot of complexity and listen to us despite I had language & commutation barrier. Not only that she took our case with upfront cost without any hidden fees or any other expenses which I like most as business insurance refused to represent me. She took our case with full confidence went in the court with her gloves on and able get dismissal my case before I had to present in court. I am forever grateful to her as she helped me out of trouble and back on the regular life schedule giving me & my son big relief. My family was truly thanked full to her & her entire team specially Brittany Starnes as they are keeping long lived legacy of Mr. Huffman’s client-centered representation. Recommend her firm 110%.

CASE DISMISSED AFTER YEARS OF ANXIETY
***CASE DISMISSED*** Wow....I cannot put into words how beyond grateful I am to both Brittany and Carol for handling my unique legal problem with the utmost attention and care! They way they handled My VERY unique legal problem located in their state was a MASTERCLASS in attorney-client relations. Seriously, every call/concern/question/annoyance/random thought I had was handled with incredible efficiency and care. From the moment I picked up the phone to ask them to take on my case to hearing the words "CASE DISMISSED"....I felt completely confident that my case was in the best possible hands. If you ever have a legal problem in Monroe County, please let your first call be to Huffman & Kendrick for your own sake. You won't regret it! I slept like a baby for the first time in 8 years....THANK YOU HUFFMAN & KENDRICK!

Awesome Attorney
My son hired Mrs. Huffman-Kendrick after being charged with the possession and selling of narcotics. I went with him to his initial consultation and was very impressed with her by the way she listened and was up-front about potential outcomes for my son. I actually trusted her from the beginning. She is awesome!

Reveiw
I was given a very serious offense, I came to Mrs. Kendrick for help, she was nothing but that. She always kept things real and never sugar coat anything, at that point in time that was exactly what I needed and I would definitely recommend Mrs. Kendrick to anyone for any matter. She also has a amazing team working for her, another person I would like to give a HUGE thank you to is Brittany, she was there every time I called, every email and any time Mrs. Kendrick couldn't be. I cant thank her enough. I'm very thankful for this firm and I recommend giving them a call.

Traffic citations
I highly recommend attorney Carol Kendrick and her team! When I first contacted law firm, Huffman Kendrick PLLC, about my teenage daughter’s traffic ticket, Carol’s legal assistant Brittany was extremely helpful and put me right at ease that Carol would be willing and able to look into it for us. The whole matter was taken care of with such professionalism, efficiency and thoughtfulness. Nothing but high marks here!

Awesome!
Our case was dismissed thanks to Mrs Kendrick! She is a true genuine caring lawyer. I would highly recommend her. I've dealt with other Lawyers in the past and never felt they truly cared about your situation. Mrs Kendrick is much different. She gives you the impression she feels what you are experiencing and really understands. Very compassionate.

3 cases dismissed!
Huffman & Kendrick represented us in 3 separate cases, two of the cases were immediately dismissed, however, the third case had to go to trial after our offer to settle was rejected. Mrs. Huffman Kendrick was always honest and upfront about our case and didn’t make false promises, something that I really appreciated. She fought for our case in court and the case was successfully dismissed! I highly recommended Mrs. Huffman Kendrick.

Less Hassle than You'd Ever Expect from a Lawyer
I contacted and hired Mrs. Kendrick following a traffic incident where I received three charges from the traffic officer. It was my first offense and I was clueless on where to start, but when I contacted the office and legal assistant Brittany answered she let me know everything right off the bat, being very knowledgeable about the circumstances and procedures. I paid what I feel like is a very reasonable fee to cover any court costs and fines, and Mrs. Kendrick handled the rest. They let me know exactly what I needed to do and took care of everything else, and I left with a feeling of relief that they made everything as simple as possible for me. Mrs. Kendrick got my charges reduced to where I received no points on my licence or insurance. I cannot be more thankful to the team for helping me out in what surely could have been a harrowing time for me.

Cannot imagine how life would've been, had we not hired Mrs. Kendrick.
If anyone I ever come across needs a lawyer, I will be giving them Carol's name and number immediately. I am not saying that it is okay for people that commit crimes to go unpunished, but they do deserve good representation. In my family's case, Huffman and Kendrick Law Firm went above and beyond anything we ever expected. When your only son makes a huge mistake and is facing a lot of prison time, you do what you have to do. What we had to do was make sure that we could get Ms. Kendrick to represent him. We were able to hire her, thank God, and we were never dissatisfied at all. Carol does not sugarcoat. She is very honest and realistic about what is going on with your case, even if it's something you don't want to hear. We used her on a small case also in which the prosecutor was really trying to twist things around.. Had we not hired Ms Kendrick on that small matter, there would have been a horrible outcome. I think no matter what kind of legal problems you are having, you should at least give her a call and see if she will take your case... From traffic tickets all the way up to really big mistakes. I hope we never need a lawyer again, but if we do, we will not hire anyone else. I truly don't think there are any other attorneys in this area that are as good, and as thorough as Carol.

Excellent Lawyer
I sincerely recommend Carol Huffman Kendrick. I needed a good lawyer I could trust for a matter that happened while I was traveling out of town. I asked lawyers in my city for a recommendation of a lawyer in that location and she was their top choice which is high praise indeed. Carol and her staff were incredibly professional, knowledgeable and courteous. Legal situations happen, and when they do, having a lawyer who you can trust to do her best for you is worth everything.

Wonderful lady, fierce advocate. HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER !!!!!
I had never been in trouble before. I hired Attorney Kendrick on the advice of two friends who are in law enforcement. WOW, they were right !! SHE IS AWESOME !!!!! She is a blessing to people who are in trouble. She is very knowledgeable of the law, and is very compassionate of her clients. It is very reassuring to know that someone so professional is on your side when you are in trouble. In spite of what you see on television, the law is not always what you believe. When you are arrested, people you do not know ask you questions and try to get you to talk to them so they can get you into more trouble. They come at you two at a time, and try to get you to say things that may not help you, but surely can hurt you. Life is not like "Law and Order" !! If you find yourself in trouble, for anything do two things: 1; KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT 2. CALL THIS LADY !!!

Caring, honest and assertive
We are so grateful to Carol for guiding us through a difficult case and trial for my family. She was very knowledgable about all aspects of our case and told us what to expect at any given time. It was a long process through the courts but she won the case for us and never let us feel alone during that difficult time. She has a very supportive staff who were always helpful when we called with many a question. I would not hesitate to recommend Carol for any legal situation you might find yourself in.
