I hired Daragh to represent me in a motor vehicle accident case, where I was rear-ended in a turning lane by a distracted driver. As a result of the accident, I have 3 cervical herniated disks in my neck. After months of PT and chiropractic treatments at a Spine Center and 2 epidural steroid injections under anesthesia, I was recommended to have a 2-level ACDF (fusion) by my spine specialist. I was initially going to settle the claim myself and had prepared a demand letter to State Farm. Several days before the 2-yr statute of limitations would expire on my case, I changed my mind and hired Daragh after doing extensive internet research to find a competent, board-certified personal injury attorney. I couldn't be more pleased with my decision! Daragh met with me the next day, outlined the steps in the case, answered my extensive questions, and prepared a written contract that explained the attorney's fees in detail. He filed the case in a timely manner, gathered all of the medical records needed, prepared me for deposition, negotiated a fair settlement with State Farm and my health insurer (who had a medical lien to recoup their paid claims) and paid out the settlement funds promptly. My settlement was 2.5-3X their initial offer. Throughout the process, Daragh always returned phone calls and emails personally the same day or informed me if he was in court or depositions. He had my best interests in mind and did not rush me to settle the case prematurely or have unneeded procedures or surgery. He has extensive knowledge of the law and is a kind, easy-going guy who is a great negotiator. His positive relationships with his adversaries from the insurance companies is a great asset in achieving a fair settlement. I highly recommend Daragh Carter. He has restored my faith that there are decent, honest, plaintiff's attorneys.

Daragh is not only a great lawyer but a great man. He really made me feel that he was on my side...that he was going good to take care of everything. He gave me any and all information I needed. He answered and addressed every and any concern I had. Daragh is very easy to talk to and very professionally assertive with the opposing counsel. I really feel that he cared about me. If you need a personal injury attorney Daragh is your man. Daragh is also a man of faith and is a family man, which was very important to me. Daragh was with me every step of the way up until my case settled. He was very patient with me and really took his time out to be there for me. If I ever need an attorney again...I would look no further. I highly recommend him. Thank you Daragh for everything. I feel like I not only gained a lawyer for the future if needed but I feel like a made a friend as well.

After an auto/pedestrian accident, my husband encouraged me to seek legal counsel. I was completely unaware of the need to consult an attorney, however, after an accident you just do not know what may result. It proved to be an invaluable suggestion on the part of my spouse as this ordeal turned into an almost three year matter. Daragh Carter’s name came by way of personal acquaintances. After an accident clarity of thinking is not necessarily present and the good LORD above definitely directed us to Daragh. From the beginning he displayed great professionalism, knowledge, and compassion. Though his office was a good distance from our home, accessing him was extremely easy and convenient. Daragh is readily available through phone and email, which was our primary avenue, if driving is cumbersome for his client. He handled every aspect of our situation from the get go, alleviating any undue stress and confusion. All responses on Daragh’s behalf were timely fashioned without delay. He provides thorough explanation of one’s personal situation with complete unbiased client options. He remains absolutely neutral in his thoughts, unless asked. Daragh was very punctual updating us on our progress as it unfolded. Working with him made a really unpleasant situation tolerable. His concern is truly sincere not only about his client’s physical condition but also their emotional, psychological, and financial well being. Daragh is easy to approach, personable, patient, gracious, informative, and someone you simply know and feel you can trust. His work ethic is of great integrity and personally I believe him authentic. Daragh Carter is a valuable attorney whom represents person injury exceedingly well. He was a true blessing to us in our time of need and I give him great appreciation and respect.

After months of research, I found the right attorney to represent me in a trip and fall accident. He was available for every email or call and explained everything step by step while making me feel as if my case was the most important. He's a very kind hearted person and gives back to his clients. I highly recommend Daragh for any personal injury. He's got the knowledge and skills to reach a good settlement. Thanks Daragh for being my friend!

Daragh takes his job in representing you seriously. I was in need after an car accident with a person fleeing the police who had no insurance. I say this because he promptly responded to inquiries, educated me in areas of misunderstanding, and collaborated and proceeded with a solution I was comfortable with. He is also practical but allows you to make the call avoiding unnecessary pressure. I recommend him and would use him again.

Daragh helped me obtain a fair settlement after I was rear-ended earlier in 2015. I was 32 weeks pregnant at the time, and was looking for someone who would completely take over and deal with the insurances. He helped me obtain the piece of mind I had lost after the MVA, and allowed me to focus on what was really important, my new baby boy. He was available to answer all my questions personally, and never had issues getting a hold of him. His staff was very friendly as well.

My sisters and I were in a mva and we hired Daragh to represent us after reading his stellar reviews. He did not disappoint. We could not have asked for a better lawyer. After our mva, not only were we injured, but we were confused as to what our next step should be. Daragh helped explain our options to us and answered any questions we had. Our case went on for a few months and Daragh and his law firm were very good through out. I was able to reach him anytime I had a question or query and if he was not available, he would make sure to email me back within a few hours. He is competent, helpful, and friendly.
I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is in this situation. Thank you Daragh for making one of the scariest experiences a little bit better for us.

Where to begin? Let's start with the business side of things: Daragh is trustworthy, punctual, and extremely reliable. He would lay out his plan and then execute it to the letter. We never once worried whether deadlines were being met or whether our case had been pushed aside for more important clients. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of the law (quoting various sections, paragraphs and subparagraphs during regular phone conversations) and an innate sense of how to apply it. Together with his superb ability to read people and his willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty, Daragh is THE one lawyer you want on your side.
On the personal side of things: Daragh is friendly, understanding, personable, generous, patient, just and a man of great integrity. His email signature reads "Better a little with righteousness than much gain with injustice. Prov. 16:8." Getting to know him, it was clear this was not a fanciful phrase meant to impress, but a philosophy that fueled his passion for the practice of law. Though we wish it had been under other circumstances, we feel blessed to have gotten to know Daragh and honored to call him our friend.

I hired Daragh after reading many positive reviews on AVVO. I'd just had my first major accident and things were already starting to feel iffy when the insurance called me to get my statement. After emailing Daragh, he emailed me back, called and left a voicemail, and text me within a few hours. He was kind and clever and informative. He was patient and caring and it was clear to me that he would do whatever he could to fight a fair fight for me against the insurance company. He kept me updated consistently throughout the entire process and made sure I was seeking the treatment that was prescribed to me, on schedule. I'd never had to use a lawyer before Daragh, and he was everything I could've hoped for and more. He has exceeded my expectations in every way and I will be his lifelong client if he will have me.
