About Carissa

Learn Carissa’s areas of practice.

Carissa is licensed to practice law in Florida, New York, and Washington D.C. and regularly appears on National television as the legal expert. You may have seen her on the Nancy Grace show, Dr. Drew, CNN/HLN, CBS, CBSN, Fox News Shepard Smith Reporting, to name a few. 
 
Before founding the Law Offices of Carissa Kranz, P.A., Carissa worked as a Prosecutor in Palm Beach County handling hundreds of cases, motions, hearings, and acted as lead counsel in jury trials; a litigation associate at Greenberg Traurig, a global law firm; a law Clerk for the California Supreme Court; and legal counsel for a law clinic representing indigent clients, to name a few.
 
Carissa Kranz stands for COMPASSION & KINDNESS for ALL beings. Carissa is a lifelong vegan, former professional ballet dancer, regular yoga practitioner, animal rights advocate, humanitarian, she runs a law firm for injured clients, she is owned by a blind cat named Sugar, and is a caregiver for her Ballet mentor Joan Miller, who currently suffers from Alzheimers and Parkinsons and lives in her home. Carissa found her voice by giving a voice to others and has two books coming out soon.
 
If you ask Carissa to be a legal analyst off the air, she will tell you, that analysis extends beyond the justice system we follow --- laws evolve as humanity becomes more enlightened and evolved. 
 
"There are Universal Laws and Laws of Man... until the laws of man are consistent with the laws of the Universe, there will not be justice and peace."
 
As a former professional ballet dancer, Carissa understands work ethic, dedication, commitment and balance.  
 
"Law is an art, just like ballet -- it keeps me on my toes; it requires great skill and artistry to tip the scales of justice. I'm always seeking to strike the right balance -- in life."

THANKFUL
My personal experience with all the staff, and attorneys at the office of CARISSA KRANZ, was amazing. The entire office was so kind, and extended themselves to make sure I was taken care of. It was a long process, just as the attorneys had explained, but they all graciously walked me through each step. I'm so thankful for their support and guidance. My health was their primary concern, and I felt like they truly cared for my well being. They all worked diligently to make sure we were in regular contact. I'm grateful for all their hard work for retrieving me a SETTLEMENT IN THE SUM OF 100K

Must hire her!
Carissa has represented me on two matters and got me six figures on both cases. I'm truly impressed with her professionalism, ability to articulate, litigate, and win.

Best personal injury lawyer in South Florida
I hired Carissa after another large firm dropped my case. She was fantastic! I got triple my original offer from the insurance company. She even contacted doctors and had my medical bills reduced or eliminated. This was great because some of the charges went to collections since it was missed by the PIP. I would recommend her to anyone.
