Message from Our Founder

I fell in love with Maryland’s beauty and rich history during my time as an undergraduate student at the University of Maryland, Eastern Shore. After living in several other states over the past fifteen years, I decided to return to the place where I began my adult life, and to the people who welcomed and helped guide me throughout my collegiate career and beyond.

I established The Carter Law Firm and selected my practice areas to help others with life stories similar to my own. I grew up in a blended family after losing my mother at age eleven. Over the next three years, I also lost my two God-brothers and my grandfather. I know grief intimately. In addition, I know how the presence or absence of an estate plan can impact the lives of the people we love most.

I am also personally familiar with divorce. Yes, I have experienced that, too. I am aware of the tremendous emotional and financial impact the decision to dissolve a marriage has—not only on the spouses—but the children, the in-laws, and all those connected.

Although I am not a licensed therapist, I will listen. I will empathize with you. I will show compassion. Moreover, I will encourage you as I advocate on your behalf and guide you in organizing your legal affairs. I am very proud to say, our clients and our community are the heartbeat of the Carter Law Firm.

Call us. We care about the things concerning you.
