I've met quite a few lawyers in my life (some who I feel ripped me off), and I have to say Ann is one of the kindest and most generous lawyers I have met. She's extremely intelligent and truly knowledgeable in the areas she advertises--and others such as divorce. Ann is also doing my will. I honestly think she could handle any type of case...
Ann also has excellent assistants who are knowledgeable and caring, and give you a warm feeling.
Ann did some pro-bono work for me, and I didn't have to ask! I got more than I paid for. Needless to say, I was pleasantly shocked.
Ann has also helped children.
Hiring Ann gave me confidence once again in lawyers. Try her out first--you won't be sorry.

Ann Carey helped our son and family through a very difficult situation. Her legal expertise and knowing the Juvenile Justice System inside and out was key to her obtaining a successful outcome for our son. Ann knows and understands that sometimes even good kids make mistakes and Ann knows the importance of keeping a juvenile incident off a teen’s permanent record. Her thorough investigation, meetings with our son with caring, compassion and honesty, along with keeping us apprised of the matter has been priceless. She is truly an attorney of utmost integrity and caring. We wouldn’t hesitate recommending Ann to anyone who is in need of a legal expert in the area of defending a minor in the Juvenile Justice System. Our thanks and appreciation to Ann and her staff.

I have known Ann Carey for almost 20 years. We first met when she offered services in the Juvenile Detention System and I was a Chaplain there. She was available and always responsive and she has not changed over the years. I have referred her, most recently to a young man in our parish. I don't have details but his case was satisfactorily resolved. I had occasion to contact her myself, in the last month, regarding a criminal case for a family member. She responded quickly and with the information and advice I needed. Hers is the only Attorney phone number in my personal directory and she is the first person I recommend if someone asks me about legal services. If you want someone straightforward, knowledgeable, ethical, and caring, Ann Carey is definitely your lawyer.

Ann Carey is a superb criminal defense attorney. I have referred clients to her, and worked with her on cases, and have found her to be exceptionally well informed about the law and how it impacts the case. She has a wonderful gift for listening attentively and with compassion to clients. Clients appreciate her hard work on their behalf, her top notch legal skills, and her compassion for them. I am glad to know her, and thankful to be able to give her name to clients.
