Make him your 1st call for family law
I consulted with Mr. Carter for the first time via phone after posting a question on AVVO and knew instantly he was the right attorney for my family law case with my narcissist ex. It was VERY important to me that whoever I hired was familiar with narcissism as narcissists are masters of manipulation and can lie very convincingly. I retained him in October after an in person consultation in which it was almost like he knew my ex by his own description of what narcissists say and do. It was like he read my emails and texts from him and never actually had at that point! Not only was he was very knowledgeable, he was also very attentive and patient with my multiple phone calls and questions fueled by my anxiety over the case and protecting my child. He thoroughly prepared me for court and by day of, I was minimally anxious of what the results would be and confident in his ability to represent myself and my child. Not only was I granted what i asked for but also more! I can't possibly say enough good things about Mr. Carter! If you are looking for an excellent, knowledgeable, attentive, fair priced attorney in your family law case, he should be your first call! I imagine he'll end up being your only! Mr. Carter, thank you for being exactly the attorney i needed for me and my child and "thank you" will never be enough!

Awesome Attorney
I was going through a very long & bitter divorce. I had several attorneys before I found the right one! Mr. Carter understands family law & the legal system. He is well educated & worked with me as a "partner" rather than a 'client'! I felt I could contact him pretty much anytime. If it was after-hours or if he was in court, I knew he'd call me back as soon as he was able. He answered my question(s) with sound advice & skill. It was unfortunate I had to meet Mr. Carter the way I did (e.g., divorce), but all in all, I am grateful I did. Mr. Carter will not only work for you, but he will work WITH you!

EriK Carter Delivered Beyond All Expectations.
It is only fair that I point out that my divorce lasted almost 3 years. I started with a large law firm in Indianapolis, there was a lot of turn around of lawyers, my case was finally handed over to Mr. Carter. He informed me that he was starting his own business Carter Legal Service. I followed him to his new office. My case had not moved very fast for numerous reason holds, delays and all kinds of legal maneuvers that was draining my funds and mental well being I was tired. I told Mr. Cater I did not care anymore I was done wanted to just drop the divorce walk away. Thank God Mr. Carter told me he strongly advised against it that I should stay the course; that, that was the tactic to wear me down and he would only withdraw if I gave it to him in writing. My ex-wife made her move that following weekend and wanted to move forward thinking I had thrown in the towel. Mr. Carter was still representing me and I wanted to go forward, For the sake of brevity I will get to the end result! NOTHING!!!! She received absolutely nothing not one cent! I also received the car and keep 100% ownership of my business. Erik Carter did his work above and beyond what I had expected. he put together the chronological list of event showed how this case was made to drag out, to see to it that I lost my home, money and my business. In the court Mr. Cater showed up and showed out. He objected to almost every line of questioning including references to my mental state of mind, all of which were sustained. He stopped every maneuver and protected my business. I walked out of that courtroom walking on air, finally justice and someone who had some skill to get a marathon divorce over. My personal advice stay away from these really large law firms they cannot promise any better results. Erik Carter may not be the cheapest game in town but he is way more reasonable than the larger firms. I will guarantee when it matter in the court room he will bring his skill to the table. Your only responsibility is return all paperwork that he give you in a timely manner. In conclusion there is know way I can write all that occurred, but I will tell you that Erik Carter has given me a new start, I wish I would have had him in the beginning maybe I would not have lost half of what I did? Divorces are a ugly business and a big heart is the number one ingredient for disaster. let Erik do his thing then you can be generous later, if your so inclined.
