Review David Carter

  • Needs to spend more time with case details with his client

    1.0 star

    Posted by a client

    Didn't take the time to delete or contest inaccurate things on police report before sentencing. Two months into this particular case failed to contact his defendant other than talking before going into court, basically we called him. I think a court appointed attorney could have done just as much as David did. Disappointed to say the least :(

    David B. Carter Jr.’s response: “Wow! Client was charged with possession of meth and maintaining a meth lab. Client spills guts after her rights were given. Got them to drop the lab count. No need to challenge inaccuracy in police report as the maintaining a method lab was dropped. Police report was NOT part of the presentence report. I addressed all inaccuracies in the presentence report. Client's father wrote this review and has not come to terms that attorneys do not have a magic wand. Attorneys can not get every case thrown out specially when the prosecutor has a valid confession. Father should realize that you do not contest things in a police report after a plea is taken. That part of the process is done prior to plea. I addressed the inconsistencies in the police report with the prosecutor and that is why they dropped the meth lab count. Nothing else could have been done on this case. The Judge was simply a harsh sentencer! To blame the attorney is not right. To say I failed to contact the client is misleading. I was always in contact with the client and prepped her for her presentence interview and what to expect for sentencing. After a plea is taken and before sentencing there is nothing to communicate unless something comes up unexpectedly, which did not happen. We received a very favorable presentence report but the judge decided to go against it. I suspect there was some kind of ex parte communication between the Judge and other parties as the sentence seemed too harsh based on the presentence report.”

    David Carter is the most aggressive and conscientious attorney I have had the pleasure of meeting.
    I went through a couple of years where I was drinking more than I should and that inevitably led to problems with the law. Criminal legal proceedings are very stressful. The wrong attorney can make those proceedings even more stressful.

    So what (in my opinion) makes a good attorney?

    It is not enough that an attorney be smart, professional or even connected. A successful attorney’s ability to litigate your case to the least painful result hinges on hard work and a deep interest in the details of your case. They need to be responsive, attentive and listen. If they do not listen they will miss details that could lead to an acquittal or at the very least provide leverage that allows them to push for a plea bargain that may minimize the pain of a conviction.

    David Carter is not only smart and hard working he listens. He thoroughly reads reports and transcripts and he often finds the obscure details that allow an attorney to pick apart the State’s case and secure an acquittal.

    In one case where David represented me he so thoroughly discredited a Professional Expert Witness’ (a Psychologist) testimony that she almost cried on the stand. While that may seem aggressive the bottom line is when you are facing life changing consequences; that is not the time to be nice. It is a time to attack the information and witnesses against you with unrelenting interrogation.

    David is a fantastic trial attorney with a proven track record and he does not take a plea bargain simply to avoid trying a case. David always advises his clients what the best options are based upon the facts available and leaves no stone unturned in the search for information to best represent and protect his clients’ interests.

    Bottom line for me is that I would not go to trial with any other attorney than David Carter nor would I allow any other attorney to represent my position to the court pre-trial. I will always be thankful for having met David Carter and consider his representation to have been a blessing during very bad times.

    I had not been able to pay my debt because of a disability and not being able to work since late 2011. I finally got my disability pay and was working on catching up with everyone when I came across a rude, demanding, creditor that was not willing to work with what I could afford to pay and knew how to make me fear what they "could" do to us. Trying to get me to borrow money to pay them, even giving me a few days "to see what I could come up with"I contacted Mr. Carter through Avvo after he responded to one of my questions posted on Avvo.com and he responded right away. I was amazed at how quickly he called and how much he has been able to help already. Those debt collectors put the fear in me and David helped to ease the fear and explain what is actually going to happen with my case. This is definitely a guy you want in your corner! Thank you David!!! Highly recommend :)

    This attorney is one awesome litigator. My case was stacked against me and Mr. Carter totally destroyed the prosecutor's witnesses. I got a not guilty verdict. He is one tough attorney. Mr. Carter also worked with me on the fees. I would hire this guy in a heart beat.

    I was given Mr. Carter as a public defender. Most public defenders just run throught the motions without really caring about the results of thier clients cases or putting much effort into their assignments. THIS IS NOT THE CASE WITH MR.CARTER. He is a very aggresive defender that really cares about not only his win/loss record but the client. I could never thank him enough for how hard he worked and faught on my behalf. He gave me my life back.
