Best Attorney
Vic Carmody did an amazing job with my case! I highly recommend him to anyone in need of help! He was very professional and prompt. He took the time to make sure I understood everything that was going on. In the end, he won the best outcome for my case! I am so happy I trusted him with my case.

Excellent Lawyer
Awesome outcome in my case. Glad he was able to work everything out without me going to trial or even needing to go to the pretrial as I’m out of state. He was a bit more expensive than we had hoped and it is extremely hard to get in contact with him directly, but it’s hard to argue with the results. He did an excellent job in my case and I really appreciate all of his work. He is worth the money.

What a guy!!
I have to say that Vic knows the law better than anyone I've ever met when it comes to DUI. No looking up anything, shoots straight from the hip. The courts highly respect him and he is a man of his word.He did a fantastic job for me and am fully satisfied with him and his team. I would highly recommend him to handle yours.

Thank you Vic Carmody!!
My son was pulled over on the trace and failed a field sobriety test. He was not intoxicated. The first and only call I made was to Victor. I had heard of his reputation and his ability and I was not disappointed at all. It took some work on his part, but the result was much better than was expected. His charges for his DUI were dropped. Thank you Victor and to all that were involved with my son’s case.

So Grateful!
Mr. Carmody and his staff were both professional and responsive. When going through challenges it is important that your call and questions are answered. We chose Mr. Carmody because of his experience and reputation. That proved to be a very wise investment. His patience and wisdom with how to strategically proceed proved to help us get both a fair and favorable outcome in our case. We would highly recommend this law firm.

He delivers and does what he says he is going to do! He will do everything he can to fight for you and your rights. He looks at every detail precisely and knows how to position your case for the best possible outcome! My situation was very unfair and he fought, delivered, and won! Hire him!!! You won’t regret it!!!

Incredible Lawyer!
The skill and mastery demonstrated by Mr. Carmody and his Legal Team (Jon and Liz!) ... is bar-none, some of the VERY best legal representation I've encountered. With many years experience interacting daily with legal teams --- both domestic and on the international stage --- the level of Excellence, Professionalism (and Tenacity!) by this team ... bar none --- Got it done! No question, this team’s ability to anticipate complex legal issues and successfully navigate the political landscape – absolutely determined the favorable outcome of the Prosecution not to go forward with this case and render Not Guilty verdict. If you find yourself in a legal mess on ‘Isle-5’ … Do yourself (and your family) a favor, don’t waste time talking to an answering service that promise an attorney will call you back. Mr. Carmody actually (did) return my call … and Mr. Carmody and his team overcame all obstacles and pushed the football across the goal line. This legal team truly delivers excellence … and they Deliver!

Wonderful
Mr. Carmondy helped me through a situation I never thought I would have to deal with. While I was panicking he was calm and reassuring throughout the whole process. When I thought this would follow me for the rest of my life he managed to get the case dismissed and is already working on getting my record expunged. I couldn’t ask for anything else. 10/10

A God-Send & Super Lawyer
I was pulled over and charged with a 2nd DUI which had the possibility of being enhanced to a 3rd DUI. I refused all field sobriety tests and breathalyzer tests as well. The possibility of a conviction was very real. I felt destitute and knew I had to call the best lawyer that money could afford. I was not going to take any chances with my freedom and my life. I was recommended Vic Carmody from a reddit forum. After looking all of his reviews and speaking with Vic on our phone consult, I knew Vic was the man for the job. I trusted my life entirely in his hands, and on the day of my court date, Vic put on quite the spectacle in the court room. The officers that arrested me didn't stand a chance once Vic called them to the stand and began his line of questioning. He didn't have to use the 'big guns' or the 'bomb in his back pocket.' The judge ruled in my favor with a NOT GUILTY verdict. Vic went over and beyond and is even having all records of my arrest expunged. It's clear that Vic is a master when it comes to DUI defense. He brings an incredible amount of subject matter expertise to the table. Vic is invaluable lawyer to anyone who is seeking defense for DUI/DWI charges. I strongly recommend him. His legal assistant, Jon, was assigned to my case as an account manager and was also very helpful, communicative, and reassuring throughout the whole process.

Expungement
Crimes from the youth are usually poor choices at the time but as life goes by having a felony is no longer ‘cool’. Mr Carmody and his team were able to get my sons childhood felony expunged . I will forever be grateful. I highly recommend this firm.

"Vic trained me and 17 other Maine attorneys for three days on the Intoxilyzer 8000: the practice of using one, the science behind how they work, and the science of analyzing their performance.

It's not enough to understand, one has to convey. And convey he does, wowing fellow specialist attorneys, all with the unmistakable style and wisdom of the Southern gentleman. Anyone charged with a DUI in Mississippi should hire the Carmody firm."
