Best. attorney. ever.
Even when I was incarcerated Michael Carter helped me out and kept me updated about my case. he treats every case with utmost importance and has never let me down. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a case taken seriously and get a good verdict out of it. 5 stars hands down.

Pro Bono
Because of the relationship, Carter was my lawyer pro bono. I would have received the same sentencing without a lawyer, but was more comfortable having one. It was easier to have him on my side then going through the case alone.

An Excellent all around Lawyer
Michael Carter worked diligently and puposefully to see that I was fully exonerated of thebaseless accusations leveled against me. He worked tirelessly and yet still had the time to keep me abreast of the progress of my case. I felt like he truly understood how important my legal matter was to me and that it wasn't just another day at the office for him. I hope that I never need him again but I feel a little better off just knowing that he is there if I need him. Thank you Mr. Carter!
