My "go to" firm for co-counsel
When an out of state lawyer is looking for a partner firm to co-counsel a major case, selecting the right firm invariably has a direct effect on the ultimate outcome of the case. Time and time again over the last 10+ years me and my firm have opted to partner directly with Brett Carter at Bertoldo, Baker, Carter & Smith in Las Vegas. Not only is he an excellent attorney in his own right but he knows his way around Las Vegas and the Nevada court system like few others. Having him on the team is not just having an additional person to help with the innumerable tasks of managing a complex case, rather he adds value and dimension to the overall litigation project to help move it through the system. Having settled and tried several cases with Brett Carter and the Benson team, and achieving excellent results each time, they are my "Go To Firm."

Point in the right direction
Brett was quick at getting back to me, next day actually. Told me my situation was common. Gave me other option and referral. Said if We thought we needed more down the road, to please feel free to get back to him. Felt he was very honest.

A Lawyer that cares and will fight for you
Since day one of meeting Brett, I knew I was in good hands. Brett made sure to thoroughly explain and cover any/all question or concern that I had, and was able to ease my mind and get me an answer to the question/s I was seeking. He and his team always keep in communication through the length of my case. My case lasted a little under 4 years and even though it was a lengthy process, Brett and his team fought for me through to the very end. We won my case and Brett made sure that I would receive medical treatment coverage for my injuries after the closure of my case. I am thankful to Brett Carter and his amazing team for all that they have done and I will recommend him to anyone that may need his services.
