Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
Chris Carney fought hard for his clients when we worked together as public defenders and I am not surprised to see he is still an outstanding attorney, bringing his clients justice and providing strong reassurance to them in the most dificult times they face. I heartily endorse Chris.
