This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority.
Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.
Reprimand means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The State gives the lawyer a public reprimand in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior. Details of the infraction are made part of the public record.
Christopher’s comment: “I fought for a father to see his children, who were being withheld from him illegally. I brought a motion to enforce placement, on the theory that even without a specific order in place, no parent should simply conceal her children from the father. The mother backed down, but not before her lawyer reported my motion to the Bar. The Bar disagreed with my creativity here, claiming that only specific placement orders can be enforced. Sad.”

I'm only 19 and I had to explain to this guy how the cops violated my rights multiple times, what should have been an easy case proved to be too much for Christopher. On multiple occasions he failed to inform me on what was going on, multiple times hes failed to return my call, my license was suspended and it showed on my records that the hold open was held an extra 5 days after the period and I got a ticket 5 days after and the ticket went into effect. still to this day 8 days after the case I don't know the outcome because this guys too much of a coward to talk to me. I was about to fire this guy before my case but reviewed the contract and I couldn't because he worded it that your paying him to "try". if you hire this guy might as well donate 500 dollars to charity because even then he told me it would cost more money to persuade the prosecutor. his google page review goes back 8 years of poor service. i highly doubt anybody had a good experience with this guy its probably his buddies helping his review. i do online marketing for a living and that's the first thing you do when setting up an online image. All he had to do for me was point out how my rights were violated and point out how the officer lied on his police report and how the hold open lasted longer then supposed to and he failed.

I hired Mr. Carson just two weeks prior to a sentencing hearing for my fiancée who was facing a pretty hefty sentence. He not only got the sentenced reduced, but with the limited time he had to prepare following the conviction; he laid the foundation for very strong argument for appeal. So much so that I have decided to re-hire him for the appeal as well. He always follows up with me in a timely manner and displays integrity and sincerity on each encounter. I have already referred him to others based upon his diligence in how he is handling our case.

He did nothing for me and was late to every court date. Never came prepared. Always asked me things he needed to know the day of court. Gave him extremely important paper work he never presented to the judge. Told me I was not going to jail. That I have to check myself into Huber. They took me to jail right from court! No one knew where I was for days! I hope he loses his license!!!
