The Opinions That Matter Most

Very professional, very honest, I really recommend them. (Original) Muy profesional muy honesta en verdad se las recomiendo 👍🏻

Ana Ramirez

Most reviews are a collection of flowery endorsements that read well but carry little weight. I don’t do flowery. I’m a 68 year old man who does not like lawyers, most doctors and 99% of all politicians. I get along better with a good dog than most people, I have never been on Facebook and have never “tweeted”. I own a flip phone that I answer only when it suits me. I have served our country as a proud member of the military police during Vietnam and I normally do not do testimonials but in this case I will make an exception. If asked for my opinion you will get the brutal truth, whether you want it or not. Ms. Carreras has proven to be an exception to the rule. She handled a relatively minor legal matter for me and drove it to successful completion in record time. She is a person of exceptional character and a consummate professional, which is a rare thing indeed in the litigation community. If you are in need of the best and someone who cares about your legal well being, you cannot employ a more competent litigator that shows wisdom well beyond her years.

George Carte

I cannot thank Ms. Carreras enough! The time, effort and personal commitment she took to resolve a family legal situation went far beyond our expectations. She not only got the charges reduced but in the end was able to have the entire case dismissed. We forever owe you a debt of gratitude !

Doreen Labit

Both my fiance and I were charged with the same bogus charges and Ms. Carreras swiftly dealt with my fiance’s case in two appearances! My lawyer on the other hand didn’t do his job and after 9 months of dragging his feet the DA talked with Ms. Carreras the week before trial was to begin and she convinced them to dismiss my case as well! If I EVER need a lawyer again I will be calling Ms. Carreras!!!!

Raymond Prater

Kara Carreras is such a great attorney. She really dug deep into my case to find all the necessary details. Kara got me off of a charge that didn’t seem possible. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. And will never use anyone else!

Sherman Allen

By far Kara Carreras is the best attorney myself or my family has dealt with. She treated us like family. She consistently kept me updated as to what was going on without me even having to call her. She went that extra mile for us and I can never thank her enough for her kindness, compassion, and thoroughness of the job she did for us. If I could give her 10 stars I would!!
