This review is from a potential client who consulted with this attorney.
| Consulted Attorney
Amazing attorney that I couldn't recommend more!!
Gwen Carroll and her team did not have time to take my case on and yet spent hours looking at my case in order to help refer me to someone else, all for free. How often do you see an attorney go above and beyond for someone who is not even their client? She not only seems incredibly knowledgeable but clearly caring as well, which is hard to find.
