At Carpenter & Associates, we're known for keeping our clients updated throughout every step of their case. This can be challenging at times if our clients have 30,000 unread emails from various subscriptions.

To ensure we're able to reach you, we request that our clients set up a separate email account solely for correspondence with our office. We know that most people don't have email notifications turned on due to the influx of junk mail - we ask that you turn on notifications for this email only.

If text messaging is your preferred manner of communication, please let your attorney or paralegal know. Our case management system allows us to communicate with you via text.


Please make sure your voicemail is set up and that you've deleted all of the voicemails regarding your car's extended warranty.

Following these steps ensures that you receive important updates from your attorney in a timely manner.

Our attorneys and paralegals bill clients at an hourly rate, which varies based on experience.

Contingency cases are accepted on a case-by-case basis after thorough review by our staff.

At this time, we are not accepting any pro bono clients
