Awesome Representation
I am very grateful to Mr Eugene Carson for a job well done as my attorney. He handled my case very professionally. He did not guarantee me anything, but he did a superb job Of settling my case with superb results in my opinion. I was facing 3 pretty significant misdemeanor charges. He was able to get these reduced down to one disturbing the peace charge with a very low fine. All other charges were dismissed. Thank you Eugene for a job well done. I would highly recommend you consult with him for representation!

Stop Thinking & Just Hire Him. You will not regret it!
I was facing a felony burglary charge. Had a lot of evidence working against me. Called Mr Carson’s office and explained what was going on and how it was a huge miss understanding. Mr Carson believed in me and took my case. My cousin was facing the same charge with me but she had a public defender. First day in court her public defender advised her that she should take the very first deal she got offered because it was the best she would get. Mr Carson told me to have faith in him and give him time. So 8 months after turning down that first offer, I am clean. He got the whole case dismissed. No jail time, no charges, no fines . Nothing at all. This man is great. His office is very help and always keeps you in the loop. I Give him 100/10. Thank you Mr Carson.

Best choice you'll make
Eugene just made my heart so happy. Everytime I tried to get the restraining order off the court just dismissed it. So I hired Eugene because I hired him before to get my now husband out of jail and he knew the case ...the restraining order is off!!! He will do everything and anything to help you he really gets personal . Couldn't find a better lawyer.

Very amazing
I will start off by saying hallelujah! I am like the worst difficult individual to ever deal with though what it may seem. Eye is in beholder when look deeper I am more than forever can be proud to say that Mr.Carson's law office and his staff his team has not beat one but two of the charges I had against me. I want to scream it louder than the highest loud but let's not. Try to say less. I have had the pleasure of speaking with each individual meeting the ones that got to and spoke with who haven't that was a great honor, I appreciate the time took good to know They were dedicated committed you know in a city or the county it's usually what don't I'm a believer of have to try how will you know. I Never liked people saying what you couldn't do because that's not what our ancestors come from why have here like we are. In the past few months over 2400 to almost three thousand cases just being dismissed and I kept saying well why can't I be one of those. Black out who ever project not easy. I do think had I not hire Mr.Eugene I seen past probably kept trying to demand or taken that as do. So to take a case to trial and it was as if challenging because it's against all the odds same cycle especially given the different chain to it of how something could hinder they turned that around it was as if it skipped over and put it back where it should have had opportunity to been heard not not took for granted. Never been through it before so I wouldn't know how to act, Mr.Olen who was there side by side you couldn't believe the frustration and tears I had yes not because of being sad but sick and tired of being sick and tired. Set the record straight My Attorney fought this we won both cases dismissed! hands down that was fair that square the argument and great people decided not guilty. I highly recommend this Law firm that came through were committed stay dedicated because they can actually say they earned that it wasn't handed wasn't the television that was real! I stood there shaking my head at disgust because even I was going through self-doubt like man they've already been playing this for so long. If you want people that are dedicated, honest and really their to fight for you and uphold so rights aren't being violated either that over months made countless effort to have results in favor. Hearing and Seeing results I highly and this is just coming from me I would highly recommend this law firm because when you have all these other ones getting what-ever. Actually earned that and that is GREATNESS AT ITS finest !! Each one spoke return call spoke politely want what client needs and wants. Appreciate Mr.Olen for being a great guy of his word by his actions that he showed in and out of courts which was I'm going to give my best all can ask none took. I am a witness to that and the outcome was outstanding!! Just have to say you be impress literally I had to ask are we supposed to come back for this and Mr.Olen said no we did it. Congratulations I don't know where they were in the beginning but I am glad that I was able to find them during these troubles times that kept taking me down like where was the referee all this time? Hear negative and positive when comes to field they could have easily said no and wasted time they gave it a chance they gave it a try and got the perfect not guilty not one was against that means had great views and argument that they turn it around and did a mighty great job. So I do recommend Mr. Eugene Carson law office his team of paralegals the attorneys if that's the outcome you can get then this is the right place the right field and right Law office right sport get results enough proof to that. I recommend they have a lot of courage, call it out and stand not for themself and You. And I am grateful that they were on my side to me that's being more than honest and that was also a blessing but I didn't have to do it and wasn't alone. To pronouns my name right was enough to know March 17 2023 ✓✓✓

Attorney Eugene Carson Recomendation
I am extremely grateful for the amazing defense Attorney Eugene Carson provided me in my most recent case. I found him to be attentive to talk to responding to each and every question that ask him to explain to me about my case and the the specific legal requirements we had to deal with. He provided excellent protection of my rights under the law. I considered him my partner in protecting me against the false charges leveled against me and my partner. Couldn't have picked a better, more competent and hard working Attorney to resolve our case in our favor with complete dismissals for both of us. My sincere thanks goes out to him for his extrodinary efforts he brought to my case to free us of of these charges.

The Best Choice
Mr. Carson was the best choice I could have made to help me in the situation I was in. He was on point and explained everything to me in a timely manner. His staff was great and there whenever I had any questions or concerns. If you really need some help and someone who isn't going to beat around the bush, be straight forward and look at the options that are out there. He is the Attorney for you. He came through with great results and even has many payment options. Thank you, Mr. Carson and your staff, for everything you have done for me.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. I recently had the pleasure with working with Mr. Carson on a family law matter; the fear often in handling family law matters from an attorney's perspective is that opposing counsel will be especially difficult to deal with; however, this was not the case with Mr. Carson, him and I were able to take very contentious issues and meet and confer in an effective way for our clients; I was thoroughly impressed by Mr. Carson's ability to listen, his legal acumen but most importantly his willingness to find the best possible solution to the legal issues before him for his client. If you are looking for a passionate, skilled family law attorney look no further to Mr. Carson."
