Valuable
Atty. Harrison showed me a superior level of expertise in a complex area of the law. I was very impressed by his skills in the court when I needed support for my employment issues. Most importantly, he obtained me a good result. I appreciate his words and hard work done, including his great efforts and valuable experience. I will recommend him as one of the best employment law attorneys in albuquerque new mexico same as https://thebennettlawgroup.com/employment-lawyers-albuquerque/

Can't recommend Carter highly enough
Carter helped me navigate a difficult business situation. He is calm, knowledgeable, and helped bring a good resolution to the case without going to court.

Best i've used
My brother has serious problems with drugs and alcohol and we've had to get him several lawyers over the years. Carter was the most involved of any of them. Not a warm and fuzzy guy, but cares and is smart and good at getting things done. Won't lie to you or avoid you calls like most lawyers.
