Ottowa E. Carter, Jr., P.A., has as its primary focus the areas of criminal defense and personal injury law. The firm seeks to provide its clients with the very best representation with each legal issue which confronts them. Such representation is accomplished by applying vast knowledge and legal expertise, including more than 25 years of trial experience, to each client’s specific legal issue. The firm’s goal is to get the best possible result for every client in every case.
The desire to provide competent and vigilant representation stems from Attorney Carter’s experience of seeing innocent people convicted of crimes because the criminal justice system failed them. Such failures devastate the person wrongfully convicted and his or her loved ones. Attorney Carter zealously advocates for his clients to address flaws in the system so that judges and jurors understand that a charge does not always mean guilt.
While there is much injustice in the criminal justice system, many inequities remain in the civil justice system as well. People are often denied their right to a jury trial due to arbitration provisions in contracts. Their property is often taken because of unfair seizure laws. Also, they are prevented from prosecuting valid personal injury claims through laws passed under the guise of tort reform.
Proverbs 31:9 directs us to “Open [our] mouths, judge righteously, and defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Attorney Carter believes that one of his missions in life is to put this command into action with zealous and effective advocacy for those seeking justice in our legal system.
