Professional, Knowledgeable, Companionate and Powerful
I was very impressed with Adam Carr, his knowledge of the law and how professional and powerful he projects himself. Adam Carr is very compassionate, dedicated, and kept me up to date with how my case was progressing. I had a big company who thought they could take advantage of me, after Adam Carr got involved their attorney crawled into a hole and begged for mercy. Not only did that company lose their case they had to compensate me for wrongdoing, thank the lord for Adam Carr and his staff. I highly recommend the Carr Law Office, they made me feel like I hired a team of the world’s most powerful attorney’s.

Honest and hardworking.
Attorney Carr was there for me when I was taken advantage of by a family who was renting my then recently deceased mothers home. The people who rented attempted to break our mutually agreed upon lease. The vandalism which they caused had me in a very emotional state of mind. However, attorney Carr and his professional staff help insure everything was handled in the best possible manor. I would turn to him and his team again and am certain they would take the best path forward.

Competent, professional and caring!
I have had the opportunity to employ Adam for auto liability defense cases over a number of years. He was knowledgeable about multiple venues, protected the interests of my policyholders, and was very effective in handling litigation. He personally defended me in a pre-judgment interest case which resulted in no award to the plaintiff attorney. Along with seeing multiple examples of his passion and commitment to serving the law, I have also seen his compassion and concern, and his desire to serve the public. I highly recommend Adam!

Excellent
I have had a working relationship with Adam Carr for approximetly eight years. He had been my go to attorney for coverage and legal opinions without fail. He always made time for questions and provided a thorough answer with supporting documentation. Extremely professional and timely. His correspondence and communications regarding the status of each case is amazing. There was never a question as to what was going on. I would highly recommend Adam Carr for legal services.
