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.

Great attorney
First off I would like to say thank you Eugene! I have been using Eugene as my attorney and ONLY attorney for some years now. I’ve had my fair share of problems and when I needed help with my cases I could always count on Eugene. I’m talking about felonies turning into misdemeanors! Jail time turning into community service etc. one particular case i had was a felony dui and I was facing 4 years in prison because of the nature and severity of what happened. Eugene was able to get me a deal of 90 days jail time/ 90 days house arrest instead of the initial 4 years prison sentence. if you’re looking for an honest reliable attorney that will work hard for you to get you the best deal Eugene is the man for that trust me.

Awesome Attorney
What a power house Attorney with a heart I hugged his neck as he had my son's innocence shown in the court room and several older cases wrapped up and taken car of. I could not have been happier with the outcome. Hire this attorney and you will see how he conducts the court room and it will be money well spent.

Best in the field!
I picked Mr. Carson because he was a form DA, that and seeing him in action at courts sold me. I was dealing with an issue withmy son and I felt lost . He wasn't cheap but you get what you paid for and I don't regret not one penny . His assistant kept me calm on moments I felt I couldn't handle. I was given information on a timely manner and he came through with everything he said he could qnd would do ! If you need some serious help he is the man for the job again Mr. Carson I CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH and your staff for helping me and my son when we felt like the world was against us

Excellent Service
I am writing this review to express my sincere gratitude to attorney Eugene Carson and his assistant Shirley Ann for the excellent service they provided! My son was incarcerated so I often communicated on his behalf with his office. Mr. Carson and/or his assistant Shirley Ann were always available to talk and answer questions via phone call or text! My son and I had faith that Mr. Carson would represent him in an excellent manner and he did. Mr. Carson negotiated with the court and got the deal my son wanted. He and his assistant were always personable and caring. I highly recommend attorney Eugene Carson!

Miracle worker!!!
Mr. Carson is a miracle worker, you want this man in your corner. I was held on ONE MILLION dollar bail and Eugene fought like heck to get me out on a O.R. to re-unite me with my family and is in the process of literally saving my life. He has NEVER missed a single court date and always comes through for me. Look no further this is definitely the man you want in your corner when life gets tough. I've seen lots of dump truck lawyers over the years and Eugene puts them ALL to shame! Thank you for all your help God bless you!

Handles Business, Strong, Honest
I first had consultation with Mr. Carson regarding my husband's cases while my husband was incarcerated. He assisted us in multiple ways to help get my husband a reduced bail and fight the other cases from home. Mr. Carson is straight to the point and honest when it comes to dealing with your legal defenses. We hired and would re-hire Mr. Carson and are with much gratitude for his professionalism and legal assistance with these matters.

Was a dependable and great lawyer
Lawyer Carson successfully lowered my felony charge to a misdemeanor and made it possible for me to take probation with no jail time. He was responsive and made me feel confident while fighting my case.

Amazing Results= Best Attorney in the San Fernando Valley
Eugene was able to assist me in filling a Domestic Violence Oder plus was granted from the judge a Kick out order on my ex-partner who is a city employee. Also the judge granted a Civil Restraining Order on My ex-partners adult daughter who hit me while holding my baby. Once I stepped in the home they both moved out of the home. The best part was that I was able to obtain full custody of my 5 month old and receive $1,900 on child support. Eugene really knows his stuff. My ex-partner wanted to kick me out the home with our infant but Eugene really knows all types of law even eviction laws. Honestly, I am truly grateful and satisfied with the outcome. Eugene and staff really listens to you and on top of there game.

Family Attorney | Aug 20
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."
