Testimonials

Jon, Tina and Doug gave my case their utmost attention and treated me like family. They were exceptionally professional and friendly. They dedicated time to not only resolving my issue expeditiously to my satisfaction, but also explaining every process, detail, step, and expectations so I understood what they were doing. If I ever needed a lawyer again they’d be the first people I’d call. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a competent and trustworthy law firm!

A few years ago, I was fired from my job at CitiMortgage and told my seizures and depression were primary reasons. It’s been a long battle, but I finally won a disability discrimination suit against them. Don’t get excited…it went through arbitration according to a clause in my new hire paperwork. I won’t be buying any Lamborghinis.

I was the only witness in my defense. But since I have memory issues due to more than a decade of taking anti-seizure medication, my journals were the true voice of what happened during that time. I nearly stopped writing years ago. My ex husband burned some of my journals years prior because he didn’t like the way he was portrayed in them. But I never stopped writing. It’s how I process a world I rarely talk about.

I just want to thank my family for supporting me during that dark time. When I lost my job at Citi, I lost my apartment, health insurance, many of my friends, everything. If my aunt and uncle hadn’t taken me in, I don’t know what I would have done. It’s not that my dad didn’t offer. I just wanted to stay close to the few friends I still spoke to here in St. Louis.

My attorneys were amazing. They were emotionally supportive and I consider Doug Carter, and his staff as lifelong friends.

Again, thanks to everyone I’ve cried to over this. If I didn’t mention you specifically, don’t think I’ve forgotten you and what a difference you’ve made.

Carter Law Offices has excellent attorneys and staff. Highly ethical, intelligent and creative. Lawyers and staff alike are all about supporting the client – they are exceptionally client-centered in my experience. Erin Vernon, Esq. of Carter Law Offices is an attorney to watch! She handled my case efficiently, intelligently and with great caring and patience. I highly recommend both her and this law firm.

Mr. Carter and his lovely wife Tina took on a major medical institution whose negligence had caused a Stage 4 bedsore on my 92 year old mother when several other attorneys had told me I had no case and to give up on obtaining justice for her. They went above and beyond the call of duty and eventually obtained a successful judgment in my mother’s favor. Without them, this horrible abuse would have gone unpunished. They are fantastic people who genuinely care about their clients.

I never got the chance to tell you how much I appreciate everything you done. I want to apologize to you because I couldn’t see the big picture. I was blinded by bitterness and brokenness. But I thank God that you could see – everything. You are damn good at what you do – Mr. Doug. You & Ms. Tina are truly a blessing to me. So I thank you cause what was meant for bad – you turned it around for my good and for that I am truly grateful.

Out of all the experiences that me and my family has had with attorney, for the first time, we finally found someone we could trust and believe in. We believed in what they said and trusted what the firm did.


With the help of the professionally trained staff, my family and I were treated with the utmost respect and professionalism. We were rewarded with the best possible outcome in our premises liability case. We thank Doug & the staff for a job done well.

Although, this is not unexpected, it is still great news. It would stand to reason that they would withdraw AFTER being served such a potent petition as the one you wrote. Maybe when this is over, you can give me some persuasive writing tips. Great job, Doug!

Doug Carter is a rare thing in a lawyer – indeed in any person – he has great courage as well as brains. He worked tirelessly to use his skill to correct a great injustice done to us, and succeeded where most people would not have even tried. He is a very good man – and he is a very resourceful, creative and effective lawyer.
