DUI Case

A Relieved Client

“Mr. Dan Carman provided me legal representation after the sudden death of my longtime friend and legal counsel, Gatewood Galbriath. Mr. Carman took my case, and followed in the steps of Gatewood. His knowledge of the law is exceptional. I have been through multi-million dollar legal cases, with some of the foremost attorneys in the U.S., and Mr. Carman could hold his on with the best. I highly recommend him to anyone with a legal problem, no matter how large or small.”

DUI Case

A Grateful Client

“Dan knew how he would represent me as soon as I contacted him with my case. I was very fortunate to have found Dan…he knew exactly what he was going to do to handle my situation. Mr. Carman is very distinguished in his law practice and was able to minimize my court appearances, upon dismissal of my charges he also followed through with all other necessary documentation to relinquish my record. With my experience, Mr. Carman will do what is necessary to insure his clients success and I would certainly recommend Dan ‘the man’ Carman.”
