Experience You Can Trust



Carmichael Law is a criminal defense firm which provides services and representation to individuals being investigated or charged with crimes in State or Federal Court. We pride ourselves on our approach of being focused on clients, driven by results.” This is far more than a slogan, and far more than a motto. It is a pledge that we make to each and every client. A pledge to keep clients informed. A pledge to seek the best possible outcome. A pledge to put client needs at the forefront.

Let’s face it – being charged with a criminal offense is life-changing. Your life has been turned upside down, and you need help to get it back on track. Carmichael Law knows that the consequences of criminal charges exceed beyond just what happens in a courtroom. Even if someone is not sentenced to or facing incarceration; the potential of being expelled from school, losing a job, a home, custody of children, the right to vote, the right to own or possess a firearm, and the loss of a driver’s license are all potential consequences of criminal charges. When you are being investigated or have been arrested for criminal charges, it is crucial to obtain counsel to represent your interests as soon as possible. Obtaining counsel in the early stages of the criminal process allows us to use our experience gained from handling thousands of cases to develop a strategy and game plan to minimize your risk, and in turn, the consequences you are facing. Choosing an attorney is a serious decision. Do not make the mistake of choosing someone who does not care about your future, or does not have the time to focus on your case – resulting in a defense which may do more harm than good.

One of the worse feelings ever is not knowing what is happening with a case. As soon as our family met and chose Carmichael Law it was a relief. Carey was very professional and knowledgeable about our case. He made us feel like our case was his only case, he was always available for calls and e-mails. His firm was very courteous during our time of need and concluded our matter with a great result. I highly recommend Carey Carmichael and his firm.

The past 13 months have been a roller coaster for me and my health. Making a call to make choices and plan things for your life to help your loved one is a hard decision. Carey made this process a lot easier. I had heard of him from the State Attorney’s Office, Working at the Sheriff’s Office. I can never thank him enough for the services and kindness he showed during this process. Words can never express how much the service of Carmichael Law means to me.

On very short notice I retained Mr. Carmichael to handle a case regarding “ repeat violence “ injunction. After meeting with me he assured me he could and would be willing to represent me in this case. He went the extra mile to dig into evidence and the law in representing my case. The way he handled the case in front of the Judge was outstanding. Mr. Carmichael is well equipped to represent his clients.

Carey is an attorney I would highly recommend to anyone. He uses his experience and extensive knowledge to the very best of his own ability, while also understanding your situation and putting his clients' needs first. He goes far beyond the protocol of any typical attorney, always sure to answer or return calls promptly, with an eagerness to answer any questions you may have. He willingly explained many options in my case, and most importantly explained to me the best course of action for my best interest. Outstanding!
