The shareholders and partners of a business are often people who have helped build businesses from the bottom up. Many have served the business well throughout the lifetime of a company. They deserve not only a voice in operating the business. They also deserve to be treated fairly with respect to all decisions that are made.

Encouraging Practical Solutions
At the Carter Law Offices, we encourage practical solutions that reduce the financial impact of legal action on our clients' businesses. Practical solutions often include alternative dispute resolution methods, such as negotiation, mediation or arbitration. If our clients choose to pursue those options, we are well prepared for success.
However, litigation is often necessary. In certain situations — such as when the successes of a business is at stake — it is an extremely effective tactic. In these cases, Attorney Doug Carter does not hesitate to take action. Widely known as a formidable trial lawyer, he uses proven legal strategies to achieve the best possible results in court.
