Doing the Right Thing for Our Clients
Our Kansas City, Missouri, law firm — the Carter Law Offices — combines the work of our attorneys with an experienced legal and medical staff. Together we are dedicated to doing the right thing for personal injury victims as well as fired employees — helping people move forward with their lives.
Our staff includes a registered nurse and a doctor of chiropractic who remain available to help in all cases that involve medical issues or personal injury. Our nurse is trained as a legal nurse consultant, and she can make a difference in making sure that we have the right doctors and the right medical issues identified for trial. Our chiropractor also teaches anatomy at a local college. He consults with us on cases, helps us review medical records and can talk to you about your personal injury and treatments.
Attorney Doug Carter grew up in a small town, where he learned the value of hard work and strong values. He has been a trial lawyer since 1981, with a background in commercial litigation and personal injury defense for one of the most prestigious law firms in the United States. He founded Carter Law Offices in Kansas City in 1996, and dedicated his practice to representing injury victims and their families. Mr. Carter has chaired the Nursing Home Negligence Committee of the Kansas City Metropolitan Bar Association, and is active in a number of professional organizations. He has been trained by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy to teach trial techniques to other lawyers, and served as in-house trainer for associate attorneys at his previous large law firm.
Attorney Julie Carter practiced in employment law in Kansas City before moving to Arizona in 1997, where she established one of the first disability discrimination practices in the country. She also served as adviser to Sen. Tom Harkin, lead sponsor of the Americans with Disabilities Act, before joining Carter Law Offices in 2004.
