Excellent counsel, very responsive and communicative
I came to Chip Carson after my previous legal counsel was unresponsive and left me in a difficult situation. Chip not only resolved my issue but did so professionally and efficiently. I’ve continued using Chip ever since, because he doesn’t waste my time or money. He quickly understands the issue, how it can be resolved, and counsels me on what the anticipated outcome should be. With this guidance, I’m better equipped to make decisions on how to best navigate my company.

Top flight legal representation!
I was involved in a serious automobile accident back in September 2004. My neighbor, who is also a top rated doctor, strongly recommended Chip Carson. Based on my neighbor’s recommendation, I hired Chip to represent my personal injury case. Chip did a thoroughly outstanding job for me. Chip provides top flight legal representation, has extensive experience, is client focused and results driven. Since my automobile accident, over the last thirteen years, Chip has been my go to for legal advice. As an owner of multiple businesses, it’s pertinent to have connections with the best. Chip has extensive knowledge and provides high quality legal advice in multiple areas. One of the best!

Expedient and responsive
When we brought our case to Chip, he very quickly calmed our fears of the process that was ahead of us. His efficient manner that he approached our situation was also respectful of our finances. We started the process fearing the worse – in time and money, and Chip was able to make each area less painful.
