I hired Daragh to represent me for a MVA I was in 2 years ago and the entire experience was surprisingly extremely pleasant. Daragh is the greatest attorney ever in my opinion I will never use anyone else ever again nor will I ever allow anyone else I know. He is so honest and will explain and walk you through everything step by step until the end. He answered my questions immediately and at all times of the day! Oddly enough I felt as if Daragh was a great friend I had known for years and looked forward to seeing him because he lights up every room . I was so calm and comfortable throughout the entire process/trial. If your looking for the best legal experience possible Daragh is your guy so call him now!

The legal profession as a whole has some pretty sad stereotypes, especially personal injury.
I have retained many attorneys in various areas of practice. My experiences have ranged from nightmare to good. Daragh has changed that to fantastic.
Communication is amazing! Emails and phone calls are not only acknowledged, but returned with in an hour. He is a true counselor! His advice is sound and objective. Most impressive is his adherence to ethics, personal, professional and legal. He avoids the gray areas and tactics that could potentially escalate conflict. If you're looking for the screaming lawyer who promises to put money in your pocket , I wouldn't recommend Mr. Carter. If you are looking for an attorney who will be a zealous advocacy and accomplish your objective look no further.

Attorney Daragh Carter definitely is a top attorney that goes above and beyond helping his clients. After I was in a car accident he handled my case and dealt with the insurance companies, medical bills, reimbursements etc. He was available and very responsive to any questions I had. He is a very humble, honest person that seems very genuine in wanting to help people. I will definitely recommend him to my family and friends if they are ever in need.

In December 2011 I was involved in a motorcycle accident, a driver failed to yield right of way and turned into my lane of travel. Totaled motorcycle, hospital visit, broken arm, beginning stages of bruising. Two days later I receive an official looking letter in the mail telling me what “I MUST SUBMIT” because I was involved in an accident. My immediate thought was, “I am in over my head to try this alone.” My first thought was what Denny Crane would do if he were being bullied. I take my bruised and aching body to the nearest location.
There I was greeted immediately by the receptionist, I was then introduced to Daragh John Carter. Immediate impression:
1. Clean cut/Professional dress.
2. Firm handshake.
From that moment on for the next three years Mr. Carter became my lawyer. Mr. Carter sat down with my wife and I and explained what was going to happen next. I cannot remember every detail of our first meeting but what I do remember is hearing the words, “You are to not worry about anything else except getting better. We will take care of the rest.”
For the next three years there was never a lapse in communication on his behalf. I was made aware of every single decision that had an impact on my case. I was sent a monthly update of where the discussions stood with the insurance company. In the entire time of the case I may have asked a total of five questions. Why? Because Mr. Carter answered every question I would have prior to me even actually asking it. It was his attention to details that truly impressed me.
When it became time to meet with opposing counsel face to face I had absolutely no worries that I would leave the table with enough money to compensate me and make me whole. I was right not to worry, I have enough money now that I am able to make some lifestyle improvements.

I was hit by a cement truck in June of 2014. My car was totaled and I was really uncertain on what my next steps should be. The radio and television stations are filled with personal injury attorneys and I had difficulty choosing one that I felt had my personal interest at heart. I had many questions and concerns and stumbled accross Avvo one evening. Daragh was the one that answered my questions. He spoke with me the next morning and he was so down to earth and ginuine that I had no doubt I wanted him to be my attorney. He was very attentive and answered all my questions no matter what time of day or night I asked him. Daragh makes you feel really comfortable and you never feel like you are "just a client". I walked away with a nice settlement and the fact that I made the right decision in choosing my representation. I would recommend Daragh to anyone. He is awesome!

Daragh worked with me on an injury that resulted in two surgeries and a painful recovery. He is very personable, made the process easy to understand and kept me fully informed. He did a thorough job of validating my claim by researching the conditions that resulted in the injury. I felt comfortable during the deposition since he had prepared me for the event. He did a GREAT job on deposing the opposite party. I would highly recommend Daragh to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer.

I was always kept informed through the whole process, was never promised something that he couldn't deliver, and he explained how everything worked so that I could understand. ..not lawyer speak.
