A competent, confident and compassionate, yet no-nonsence practitioner is what I see in Atty Carter. He listened, questioned, and suggested a course of action to collect funds from a real estate seller that failed to disclose a problem that led to a significant expense for the buyer. He wrote a demand letter that cut to the chase and convinced the seller it was better to pay-up.

I would highly recommend Attorney Carter to any individual or business. Attorney Carter has helped me with business transactions and is highly personable and knowledgeable. He kept me informed of the processes every step of the way. He always made himself available via phone email text or fax. He is very efficient, capable and confident and I truly cannot say enough about him. I would recommend him based his ethical and professional practices. I trusted him every step of the way. He has made my life much easier. I am able to focus on my business and he is able to take care of the legal aspects for me.
