Such an amazing woman
Ms. Carr is by far the most professional and attentive attorney I have met thus far. She listens and will have your best interest at heart. Many lawyers/attorneys will just say whatever but Ms. Carr is very caring and will above and beyond to satisfy your needs. I highly recommend her to anyone who is searching for an honest attorney that will truly help you!
